Owners of a 2012 Fiat 500 and its model variants may experience an inoperative vehicle theft alarm (VTA). Enabling the VTA in the body control module (BCM) will correct the condition.
Using a scan tool with the appropriate diagnostic procedures available in TechCONNECT, verify that all systems are functioning as designed. If DTCs are present, record them on the repair order and repair as necessary before proceeding.
If a customer’s VIN is listed in VIP or your RRT VIN list, perform the repair.
NOTE: The wiTECH Diagnostic Application will not display a flash update ICON (lightning bolt) for this update. This function is to enable VTA only, and will not update the ECU part number. Proceed with the following flash procedures to enable the VTA.
