New Security Update - questions

2581 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  JRod310
It seems info is lacking on this. My Dealer Service Dept was a bit clueless until I fill them in. They wanted $200 to install the new security update on my 2021 Redeye Charger. I complained I just received the car and he said I'll do it for free;

How long does it take? I'd hate to leave the car there all day.
How does the update work. I understand you need to type a a 4 digit number on your screen to unlock it. Must that be done every time? or just when you set it. Does it really reduce power to 5 HP?

They did mine in 30 minutes... after I told them about the update and they found the info in their systems. You have to have all of your FOB's with you. In addition to the valet mode .. it is supposed to also prevent the making of a "duplicate" key via the OBD port.
Wonder if you can defeat it by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it like the Valet.
Just for haha’s …. and science of course. I disconnected my battery and was still in valet mode 15 minutes later
Well that’s weird. Pretty well known that that’s impossible :oops::oops:. What the heck?
