    Hi, I have a 98 dodge ram 1500 5.9 auto and I have confirmed from dodge dealer that my truck came from factory with a keyfob. Now I tried jumpering pin 1 to pin 4 in the obd port. It didn’t work and won’t work because there is no wire for pin 1. So was it a typo in your instructions or what? I would like to get my fobs programmed without taking to the dealer. Thanks
