Owners of 2011 Chrysler Journey, 200, Avenger or Caravan/Town and Country may experience a MIL on (big surprise, huh?). The technician may find that any of the following DTCs have been set:
- P06DE (engine oil pressure control circuit stuck on)
- P054A (cold start exhaust camshaft position timing over advanced Bank 1, Sensor 2)
- P054C (cold start exhaust camshaft position timing over advanced Bank 2, Sensor 2)
- P0298 (engine oil temperature too high)
Reprogramming will supposedly correct these conditions. Using a scan tool (wiTECH) with the appropriate diagnostic procedures available in TechCONNECT, verify that all engine systems are functioning as designed. If DTCs other than those listed here are present, record and repair as needed before proceeding.
Install a battery charger. Do not allow battery voltage to drop below 13.2 volts or above 13.5 volts during the flash process. Reprogram the PCM with the latest software. After PCM reprogramming, the following must be performed:
- Clear any DTCs that may have been set in other modules.
- On 62TE equipped vehicles, clear the variable line pressure (VLP) counters, found in the Misc. Function menu for the PCM ECU.
- On 62TE equipped vehicles, also perform the Quick Learn function, found in the Misc. Function menu for the TCM ECU.
- Type the necessary information on the authorized modification label and attach it near the VECI label.
