History Mistake

This bulletin applies to 2010-2013 Chevy Equinox. A technician may note history DTCs stored immediately after vehicle service if the ECM wakes up (activates) while a 5-volt reference sensor is unplugged and the ignition is off. This may occur on any 2010-2013 vehicle that requires the GDS2 scan tool to establish vehicle communication.

Throttle Body Relearn

This bulletin applies to 2005-2013 Honda Pilot vehicles. If you’ve cleaned or replaced the throttle body, and now you have a fluctuating idle, a MIL on with DTC P2279 (intake air system leak) and/or P0507 (idle control system rpm higher than expected), it’s likely that the throttle plate is now in a different position from the one the ECM/PCM had previously learned.

Acura Nut Update

Just in case you’re working on a 2014 Acura MDX, pay attention to the wheel nut specs, as nut size and torque differ from those on the 2013 MDX.

Probably Just a Fuse

Some 2011 Ford Fiesta vehicles may exhibit a MIL on with DTC U029F set in the PCM and/or a no-crank condition, with no communication with the PCM.
