Most dealers charge a minimum half hour labor to do the download. So you will not save much.
Plus if they do the entire job and there is a problem, they will eat all labor for any repair.
If you install the parts, they will only cover the download. If there is any other problem, you will eat it.
Maybe.. maybe not. I installed cruise on my 10 RGC.. After hooking it up.. Flipped on the dash switch and guess what.. The CRUISE worked.. I did not need to have Stealer do anything...
So.. Sometimes.. the ECM is enabled when not installed.. FYI... and technically the dealer does not have to download.. The ECM is already cruise functional.. There is a toggle bit that just needs to be turned on.. if it is turned off at the factory.
Note.. when Turning on the dash switch.. If red cruise indicator come on in speedo.. then you're good to go..
