Revision III March 2019

Dealer Service Instructions for:

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

 

NOTE: Additional note added to Repair and to Service Procedure page 5 to inform that the absence of a lightning bolt in wiTECH topology screen does NOT indicate there is no flash available.  Post programming note and vehicle release steps added to Procedures A, B, C, D, and E.  Procedure F removed and inspect only LOP discontinued because it is not applicable.

 

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

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. 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.

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL

Adaptive Cruise Control

Dear [Name],

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. 

FCA has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain [2017 - 2019 Model Year (GA) Alfa Romeo Giulia and 2018 - 2019 Model Year (GU) Alfa Romeo Stelvio] vehicles equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

It is extremely important to take steps now to repair your vehicle to ensure the safety of you and your passengers.

 

WHY DOES MY VEHICLE NEED REPAIRS?

The ACC on your vehicle [1] 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.

 

HOW DO I RESOLVE THIS IMPORTANT SAFETY ISSUE?

FCA will repair your vehicle [2] free of charge (parts and labor).  To do this, your dealer will update the BSM software of affected vehicles to eliminate a positive torque request lock. The estimated repair time is 30 minutes. In addition, your dealer will require your vehicle for proper check-in, preparation, and check-out during your visit, which require more time. Your time is important to us, so we recommend that you schedule a service appointment to minimize your inconvenience. Please bring this letter with you to your dealership.

 

TO SCHEDULE YOUR FREE REPAIR,
CALL YOUR ALFA ROMEO DEALER TODAY

 

WHAT IF I ALREADY PAID TO HAVE THIS REPAIR COMPLETED?

If you have already experienced this specific condition and have paid to have it repaired, you may visit www.fcarecallreimbursement.com to submit your reimbursement request online. [3] Once we receive and verify the required documents, reimbursement will be sent to you within 60 days.  If you have had previous repairs performed and/or already received reimbursement, you may still need to have the recall repair performed.

 

We apologize for any inconvenience, but are sincerely concerned about your safety.  Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
