Ram 1500 2013-2020   ( DS )

The main Appcar DiagFCA features:
  • Read and clear DTC Fault codes
  • Read ECUs identification data
  • Read modules real-time data
  • Read vehicle configuration data
  • Edit / code vehicle configuration data
  • System tests / actuators
  • Perform calibration and adaptation routines

The support level, available modules and procedures may vary depending on the year and vehicles trim level.

⚠️ There are two CAN networks CAN-C and CAN-IHS in this vehicle.
To connect to modules in a CAN-IHS, you need a specific interface or an additional cross adapter.
👉 Read more how to connect to the specific CAN-bus
⚠️ 2018+ Ram 1500 is equipped with a Security Gateway Module (SGW). For active diagnostics and coding it is necessary to use an additional SGW Bypass Cable!
