Confused Volt

Some owners of a 2011-2014 Chevy Volt may comment that their vehicle did not fully complete a charge or that charging was interrupted. They may also note that the MIL was on. Technicians may find DTCs P1E00 set in the ECM and P0D3E or P0D3F set in the HPCM2.

It’s Just ECO

Owners of a 2011-2012 Volkswagen Tiguan may experience a harsh shift on acceleration while the “ECO” mode is switched on. Before diagnosis or any repair attempt, it should first be established whether the concern is also present when the ECO mode is switched off.

Connecting With the Transit

Some 2012 Ford Transit Connect vehicles built on or before 1/30/2012 may exhibit drivability concerns including runs rough, loss/lack or power, hesitation/stumble and MIL on with DTC P0351 and/or P0354. Concerns may be intermittent and DTCs may be present in continuous memory only. These concerns may be due to a spread terminal 69 and/or 70 in PCM connector C175E.
