I bought a pre-owned 2022 Super Chief today (see pic) with about 210 miles on it. Nice to save money and it's in good shape. Unfortunately, the previous owner did not record the Master Pin or any personal PIN he set. I've played around with the owners manual and the process and, although I have the FOB, I guess I can't reset anything, even a new personal PIN. I think I have to go to a dealer...and I'm not a fan of my closest dealer that is about 1.5 hours away.
Writing to ask if I have this correct. Is there no way to recover or reset a PIN? Even just a personal PIN? What else is this Master PIN used for?

You need to go to the dealer; the master PIN is encoded in the VCM and can only be read by digital wrench. Then put the master PIN in something that will never get lost or destroyed. Many put it in their phones. If the battery in the key fob goes dead, and you don't have the pin, your stranded. Many have learned that lesson the hard way.
Also create a user PIN that you would never forget.
