This bulletin applies to 2012-2016 Dodge Darts equipped with a 2.4L engine and electric power steering. During EPS module electrical diagnosis and verification, DO NOT disconnect the gray EPS torque sensor connector on the EPS module.
If the torque sensor connector is disconnected, the following scenarios can take place:
- If 1-2 ignition cycles occur while the torque sensor is disconnected, DTC C2217-00 will be active in the EPS module. This code can be cleared.
- If 3 or more ignition cycles occur while the torque sensor is disconnected, DTC C15DB-00 will be active. This code cannot be cleared, and the gear will need to be replaced.
Disconnecting the torque sensor harness while the EPS module is off the vehicle and not powered up will not generate any DTCs.
