Reprogram the Ram

Owners a 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 series and 4500/5500 cab chassis may complain about a harsh 1-2 downshift if equipped with the AISIN AS69RC automatic transmission.

Lazy Power Liftgate

Some 2013-2014 Ford Flex vehicles equipped with a power liftgate and built on or before 9/9/2013 may exhibit a condition where the liftgate power open and/or close function is inoperative, or a crunching noise from the liftgate motor is heard during operation. DTC B2908 may be stored in the LTM (liftgate/trunk module).

Funky Idle

This bulletin applies to 2012 Acura RDX models. If the throttle body was recently cleaned or replaced, DTC P2279 (intake air system leak) or P0507 (idle control system rpm higher than expected) and a fluctuating idle exists, it’s likely that the throttle plate is now in a different position from the one that the PCM/ECM had previously learned. To fix the problem, the ECM/PCM must be relearned to the new throttle plate position.

Code Plays a Joke

This bulletin applies to 2007-2013 GMC Yukon and Sierra vehicles. DTC B2555 may be found in a driver and/or passenger door module (DDM or PDM). This DTC is associated with front driver and passenger door panel courtesy lights that are only available on certain models.
