Has anyone had the security upgrade downloaded to their car yet by the dealership. Just got my letter from FCA explaining the process and it seems straight forward but still a little hesitant about reprogramming the PCM. If you had it done, any issues??

Haven't gotten a letter yet, but I also installed a shock sensor into the factory alarm earlier this year.
Was a 4 wire hook up and easy install.

Just got my letter yesterday, since it's just me and the wife who drives it, I won't bother. I saw it had an enhancement for Valet Mode, but it may work to enable it when you park, so if it gets stolen it will only accelerate to idle.

I've been to the dealer twice recently and asked about this software update.
Both times I was told that the dealer was aware of the update, but had not received any info from Mopar on how to perform the work.....

I just looked at the letter again, and it may be VIN# specific. Maybe check with FCA field operations..

Just read the link. I had a 200S with that tracking system in it i think. Thought it was a bluetooth button and ended up turning out it was a carjacking panic button. Found that out after they tracked me for 2 hours all the way back home and a sheriff rolled up to the door. 🤣

The security update is for 6.4 liter and Hellcats to PREVENT theft. Without the code the car doesn't put out more than 3hp. May be a good idea to get it regardless how many use the car.

sounds like a good start, I hope the intrusion mod will be available for 2021 Scat pack owners and not just 2022. If the cost is not crazy I would consider paying for it. I think that would a be a huge help

I spoke with a couple of dealerships in my area (San Diego) and they are pretty much in the dark about this security upgrade. I think Dodge needs to reach out to it’s dealers and get them up too speed. One dealer told me to bring it in and they could “probably “do it, doesn’t instill a lot of confidence when your told probably. The upgrade seems like a good idea, at least to deter amateurs from joy riding. Hope Dodge can make it happen.
