How to Use the Security Gateway Module Bypass


What is a Bypass Module & Why Do You Need It?

 

  • Beginning with model years 2018 and above Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/RAM/Fiat vehicles are equipped with a new device called a security gateway module.
  • The purpose of this module is to prevent CAN bus hacking over the 3G or LTE network. OBD Genie uses this bypass to allow for the enabling of a feature.
  • This device is only to be connected temporarily while programming the vehicle using the OBD Genie dongle.
