There are two types of locks that I know of....one basically just locks the program button which doesn't let you change anything but you can still see the data screens. The other is an ECU lock which prevents the car from even starting. When you first click on the microtech it will show if it is "locked on" which means you have to enter the pin number to unlock it.

I am currently trying to find out whether or not the pins are the same from the factory and how you can change them if you can. I know a few people that asked me this before and they ended up having to send it back to Microtech and it costs $80 to unlock. Hopefully they will give some info on this and I will let you know what I find out.
