Problematic Power Mode

This bulletin applies to all Honda models equipped with one-push start. When you shift into Park and shut off the engine, does the power mode stay in ON or ACCESSORY? The culprit could be a misadjusted shift cable.

Hybrid Misdiagnosis

Some 2005-2012 Mercury Mariner hybrid vehicles may exhibit a concern where the engine stalls soon after starting. This may actually be a crank/no-start condition being misdiagnosed due to the unique characteristics of the hybrid powertrain. DTC P0A7D (battery pack state of charge low) and/or P1A0C (engine disabled) may be present.

Blame the Left Foot

This bulletin applies to 2008 and later Subaru Impreza vehicles equipped with a manual transmission. The concern may involve a MIL Start Assist (HAS) warning light and DTC C0076 stored.
