Chrysler announced a recall involving the cruise control systems on a variety of 2014-2019 vehicles, including Ram trucks, Durango, Journey, Chrysler 300, 200 and Pacifica, Dodge Charger and Challenger and Jeep Cherokee, Grand Cherokee and Wrangler models, built from June 2012 to May 2018.
Some 2018-2019 Ford EcoSport vehicles equipped with a 2.0L Duratec engine and an automatic transmission and built from Sept. 1, 2017, to Nov. 28, 2018, may exhibit an illuminated MIL, with DTCs P0137 and/or P0141. This may be due to a faulty catalyst monitor sensor as well as PCM software.
This bulletin applies to 2015 Jeep Compass and Patriot models regarding a flash to improve cold starts and cruise control. A customer may experience a MIL on and may note that the engine is hard to start when cold, and/or the cruise control acceleration feels too fast at low speeds of around 35 mph.
This bulletin applies to 2010-2016 GMC Acadia and 2017 GMC Acadia Limited vehicles. Some customers may comment that there is a clunk/thump noise on acceleration once after each key cycle that may be mistaken as coming from the engine compartment or suspension.
