Flash BCM for inop. HDC.
Thank you for this info. I called my dealer and gave them this number. They scheduled my appointment and now the system is working. My brand new truck is finally 100% functional.

Still blows my mind they would send trucks to dealerships / customers knowing an advertised feature does not work.

I don't know about in the Ram, but in the LR3 if I recall correctly it only deals with braking (so if it is on and you get to a hill you need to step on the accelerator...). I've used it infrequently, but when I have it has been nice (creeping down long icy downhills, or steep gravel offroad). Unless you are pushing it traction wise due to the "road" surface conditions you'll likely never use it. Also note it is really only for slow speeds.

I used HDC yesterday on an icy rutted long downhill and can report it worked really well. The hill is long and steep truck would start to slide and the HDC would catch it in a blink. Also the e locker is awesome getting back up the hill no problem.
Hi could you please explain how you engaged the HDC?

Can HDC be added to 2021 Ram 1500 Lone Star with 2wd? I added this feature to my 17 F150 and used it more than I thought it would. If so what parts and or programming is involved?
Thanks,
Paul
