How to change VIN number in GM instrument cluster, BCM and Brake using GM DPS

In this video, I demonstrate how to use GM DPS and DPS archive files to change the instrument cluster's VIN number.
The exact process can be used for other modules using those modules specific archive files. 

You can use this process to change the VIN number in a used instrument cluster for displaying the correct mileage from the BCM module onto the instrument cluster.

Feel free to ask any questions for help in the comments section.

Well done ?

How is it possible to get those files ? Through sps ? 

Hi Abdullah, Thanks.

To get the xml files for your car's modules, you will need GM SPS subscription for your vin.

I already have some xml files but they may or mayn't work with your car's modules.


This video shows the process for getting the xml files.
