    If you go to the service department, (might be parts department)
    You can ask them to print out the options, your truck has.
    Won't be a full list of your RPO codes, but will be the ones you will most likely want.

    Told me I have a 105 amp, and my dad has a 140 amp, and a snow plow prep package that we didn't know about.

    74 Corvette Stingray, 350, 4 speed

                  You will need a tech2 to reactivate them in the BCM, also most fleets have their own techs, that's what I am a fleet tech for a multi billion dollar company who shall remain nameless LOL so chances are they did the work in house instead of taking it to a dealer, the only work that shows up in the system I used is work done in GM shops.

                      Dumb ?, but why would they delete something like a programing option?

                        Bumping an old thread just so you know, they delete the DRLs and Auto headlights so that they can sit on the side of the road with the engine running but with the headlights off so no one can see them
