“This site contains affiliate links for which OEMDTC may be compensated”

March 1, 2019 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 19V148000

Adaptive Cruse Control May Fail To Deactivate

The driver’s inability to deactivate the ACC can increase the risk of crash.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 19V148

Manufacturer Chrysler (FCA US LLC)

Components FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE, SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC

Potential Number of Units Affected 19,114

 

Summary

FCA US LLC (Alfa Romeo) is recalling certain 2018-2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and 2017-2019 Giulia vehicles. The Brake System Module (BSM) software may prevent the driver from disabling the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) after the traction control system detects a specific wheel slip.

 

Remedy

Alfa Romeo has notified owners, and dealers will update the BSM software, free of charge. The recall began March 25, 2019. Owners may contact Alfa Romeo customer service 1-800-853-1403. The Alfa Romeo number for this recall is V27.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Revised June 2019

Dealer Service Instructions for:

Safety Recall V27 / NHTSA 19V-148
Adaptive Cruise Control

 

NOTE: Procedure F reinstated and inspect only LOP reinstated.

 

Remedy Available

2017-2019 (GA) Alfa Romeo Giulia
2018-2019 (GU) Alfa Romeo Stelvio

NOTE:  This recall applies only to the above vehicles with Adaptive Cruise Control (sales code NH3).

NOTE:  Some vehicles above may have been identified as not involved in this recall and therefore have been excluded from this recall.

 

IMPORTANT:  Some of the involved vehicles may be in dealer new vehicle inventory.  Federal law requires you to complete this recall service on these vehicles before retail delivery.  Dealers should also consider this requirement to apply to used vehicle inventory and should perform this recall on vehicles in for service.  Involved vehicles can be determined by using the VIP inquiry process.

 

Subject

The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) on about 19,100 of the above vehicles may not allow cancelation of the ACC in specific driving conditions.  In certain circumstances while ACC is active and the traction control detects a specific wheel slip, it is possible for a positive torque request to be locked by the Brake System Module (BSM) which may result in unexpected acceleration. If the driver does not shift to neutral or apply firm, sustained brake-pedal application to deactivate the ACC, this condition can cause a vehicle crash without prior warning

 

Repair

Update the Antilock Brake System (ABS) module / BSM software.

NOTE: Some vehicles may require up to three separate software flashes.

NOTE: The ABS module icon within the wiTECH topology screen may NOT display a lightning bolt.  Absence of lightning bolt does NOT indicate there is no flash available.  Flash may still be available even in the absence of a lightning bolt.  Pages 4 and 5 of Service Procedure MUST be followed to inspect hardware/software level and determine appropriate flash procedure.

 

Parts Information

No parts are required to perform this service procedure.

 

Parts Return

No parts return required for this campaign.

 

Special Tools

The following special tools are required to perform this repair:

➢ NPN wiTECH micro pod II
➢ NPN Laptop Computer
➢ NPN wiTECH Software

 

Service Procedure

NOTE: Before beginning, check if the vehicle is involved in any previously issued open safety campaigns and complete those before continuing. 

CAUTION: If this is an unsold vehicle, before beginning the service procedure, deactivate the vehicle shipping/transportation mode.

NOTE: The wiTECH scan tool must be used to perform this recall.  If the reprogramming flash for the Antilock Brake System (ABS) module / BSM is aborted or interrupted, repeat the procedure. 

 

  1. Open the hood and install a battery charger. Verify that the charging rate provides 13.0 to 13.5 volts. Do not allow the charger to time out during the flash process.  Set the battery charger timer (if so equipped) to continuous charge.

 

NOTE:  Use an accurate stand-alone voltmeter.  The battery charger volt meter may not be sufficiently accurate.  Voltages outside of the specified range will cause an unsuccessful flash.  If voltage reading is too high, apply an electrical load by activating the park or headlamps and/or HVAC blower motor to lower the voltage.

 

  1. Connect the wiTECH micro pod II to the vehicle data link connector.
  1. Place the ignition in the “RUN” position.
  1. Open the wiTECH 2.0 website.
  1. Enter your “User id” and “Password” and your “Dealer Code”, then select “Sign In” at the bottom of the screen. Click “Accept”.
  1. From the “Vehicle Selection” screen, select the vehicle to be updated.

 

NOTE:  Before updating the ABS/BSM software, create a scan report and save a copy for future reference.

 

  1. Create and save a Vehicle Scan Report (VSR) before proceeding.

a. From the left column in the analysis section, select “Reports”.

b. On the reports page, select “Scan Report”.

c. Select “ECU Summary” from the dropdown menu on the right.

d. Select “Printer Friendly” then save file type as “PDF”. Name the file with the last eight digits of the vehicle VIN.

 

  1. From the “Action Items” screen, select the “Topology” tab.
  1. From the “Topology” tab, select the “ABS” module icon.

 

NOTE: ABS module icon may NOT display a lightning bolt. Absence of a lightning bolt does NOT indicate there is no flash available.

 

  1. From the ABSFlash” tab, record the “Current Part Number” (Figure 1) for the software currently installed in the Electronic Control Unit (ECU), then proceed to the table in (Figure 2) to determine which flash Procedure A, B, C, D, E is the appropriate starting point for the specific hardware and software combination currently installed in the vehicle.

Figure 1 – Example of ECU “Current Part Number”Figure 1 – Example of ECU “Current Part Number”

 

NOTE: Use the chart below in order to determine the appropriate flash service procedure based on the hardware (HW) and software (SW) level currently installed in the vehicle.  Then proceed to the appropriate Service Procedure A, B, C, D, E and complete all relevant steps detailed in that service procedure.
