Default Replacement ECU no VIN- Hurricane Flasher

I added a Hurricane Gap Flasher to my 2017 ThunderCat. The first time I installed it, It blew off a hose that was loose and threw a 1236 error code.
The dealer fixed the leak but could not clear the code. (We swapped another ecu to verify the leak was fixed).
After waiting 6 weeks I finally got the replacement ECU.
Here's the issue:
The new ECU is not programmed with a vin number. Factory says they don't do it and dealer says he has no way to do it.
Now my flasher won't work cause I have no vin


I have a call in to Hurricane but wanted to check if anyone else has run in to the no VIN thing.

I've had that code before and was able to clear it with a fault clearer gap has.

3 dealers tried to clear the code and were unable to do it. One place swapped a floor model ECU into my sled and showed that my leak was fixed but my ECU in a new sled still threw the code and wouldn't clear. Then I ran my old ECU for 6 weeks with all leaks fixed. Code never cleared and I was limited to 8000 rpm. Now I got the new ECU and CAT took the old one back so I can't get it now. BTW: Code is gone


Can I send you the ECU and flasher for you to pair up?

It makes no difference now as the ecu is gone back to cat. But when you were using the gap flasher to clear codes. Were you just using the app to clear codes? Or did you load up the specific "tune" to clear codes?. Early in 2017 I had one ecu that was difficult to clear and GAP/TD sent me a tune file used to clear ECU.

One tune , 10 tunes, stock can still happen. Some of the codes are hard to clear.
