This TSB applies to 2012 Honda Civic and CR-V vehicles. The battery may be dead and needs multiple jump starts in order to start the engine. Aside from the obvious concerns regarding battery age, vehicle storage period, faulty alternator, sulfated battery, parasitic draw or loose battery cables, a probable cause is the PCM not selecting the correct charge mode. The vehicle’s battery sensor monitors battery condition and the PCM determines charging mode. Based on customer driving habits and sulfation, the PCM may not be able to select the correct charge mode.
Some 2008-2009 Taurus, Taurus X, and Sable vehicles built before 8-12-2008 and 2008-2009 Edge, Flex and MKX vehicles may exhibit a harsh driveline clunk at low speed (below 10 mph) during stop and go driving on tip-in (this could be perceived as a harsh 1-2 upshift or 2-1 downshift). This may be due to a PCM calibration.
This TSB applies to 2009-2010 Acura TL models. The MIL may illuminate with DTC P2118 stored (throttle actuator current range/performance problem).
Some 2010-2011 Ford Fusion Hybrid, Milan Hybrid and 2011 MKZ Hybrid vehicles built on or before 9-9-2010 may exhibit a wrench light on with no drivability concerns and DTC P0A7C (motor electronics over temperature) stored in the PCM.
Some 2010 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan vehicles equipped with a 3.0L engine and built on or before 12-7-2009 may exhibit rpm fluctuations during acceleration immediately following a cold engine startup.
This TSB involves Chrysler flash reprogramming the PCM (or for vehicles equipped with a 2.8L turbo diesel engine, flash reprogramming the TCM (transmission control module) with new software.
Some 2009-2011 Ford E-Series vehicles equipped with the 4.6 or 5.4L engine may exhibit an illuminated MIL with DTC P0130 (oxygen sensor circuit Bank 1, Sensor 1) and P0150 (oxygen sensor circuit Bank 2, Sensor 1).
If a 2001-2005 Hyundai XG or Santa Fe (3.0 or 3.5L) sets a DTC P1151, check the following:
Some 2007-2009 B2300 49 State/Federal Specification vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions may exhibit higher than expected engine idle speeds of 1,500-2,400 rpm at cold start up. A new Powertrain Control Module (PCM) calibration has been developed to correct this condition
This TSB applies to 2009 Acura TSX, from VIN JH4CU2….AC000001 through JH4CU2…AC009053. The engine pings during moderate to heavy acceleration.
