Element of confusion

This bulletin applies to 2007-2008 Honda Element vehicles. The MIL may be on with DTC P0111 (intake air temperature sensor circuit range/performance) and DTC P2183 (engine coolant temperature sensor 2 circuit range/performance).

When the vehicle is parked in direct sunlight, the underhood temperature can rise faster than the engine coolant temperature. This could create a higher than normal voltage difference between the IAT and ECT sensors, causing the PCM to store these DTCs.

Update the PGM-FI software with the HDS, using version 2.020.015 or later.

Control module (CM) update: application version V6.19.03 or later. Database update 22-OCT-2009 or later.

The updated PGM-FI software program IDs and P/Ns are shown below. If one of these or a later program ID is the current program ID displayed during the update, the software for this service bulletin is already installed.
