I just ordered and installed the hot tune for my 2017 ram ecodiesel
I followed the instructions and the DEF gauge is now in pointing straight up (50%)
before the tune it was just below the beginning of the red (below the 1.4 mark)

will this fix itself eventually? or is there something i need to do

the instructions said start it and quickly get up to 5mph
I pulled the truck into driveway initially, so i needed to reverse out first before i could go forward up to over 5 mph

besides that i did everything exactly as stated

two small things,
1, you don't have to remove the air-box, to replace ECU, it is easily accessible in place, undo the glow plug cable and the two main cables and 4 bolts and slide it out
2, there was no affect when i hit the throttle 3 times to reset the oil interval, i went into programming on dash and hit reset oil.. not sure if this has changed for 2017..

the DEF gauge has still not reset and showing proper level

I read on another forum, this is what happens when the "off-road tuning" option is installed

is it possible this was installed by mistake? it clearly says on my order form:
-Off-road Tuning : No
but mistakes can happen

I also read you can damage your engine if you have the off-road tuning and stock exhaust
so i am no longer driving my truck until i get word back from you guys

Did the DPF regen notice come on after the ecu install? You are fine to drive the truck. Best to send us an email vs. this forum, we check email more often and can get your order info that way to better assist. If the DEF gauge update (5mph test) did not run, the tank level will average to the correct level in the next 5-8 hours of driving.
