    If I drive with a replacement LCM that has not been coded yet will the higher mileage stored in the replacement LCM transfer to the other coded components?

    ADMINISTRATORS if you are going to delete this please tell me why. A response to messages sent to you guys would be nice as well.

    Doesn't matter. I replaced the LCM and managed to change the Chassis number and match the odometer in the new (to me) LCM.

    Note for folks that replace the unit in the future. The tamper dot comes on as soon as you plug the new replacement unit in but this goes when you code the new unit correctly.

    I think he meant would the replacement lcm pull the mileage from the cluster and the key.

    Oh no you need to get it changed by a dealer or Indy or someone with DIS or PA Soft.
