August 27, 2020 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 20V512000

Stealth Mode Disables Camera Display/FMVSS 111

The lack of a back-up camera display increases the risk of a crash.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 20V512

Manufacturer Chrysler (FCA US LLC)

Components BACK OVER PREVENTION

Potential Number of Units Affected 26,361

 

Summary

Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2018-2020 Dodge Charger Pursuit vehicles equipped with a “stealth mode.” When stealth mode is selected, the backup camera rearview image will not display when the vehicle is in reverse. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, “Rearview Mirrors.”

 

Remedy

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will update body control module software to disable stealth mode when the vehicle is shifted into “Reverse”, free of charge. The recall began October 22, 2020. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is W62.

 

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.

Revision (3) June 2021

Dealer Service Instructions for:

Safety Recall W62 / NHTSA 20V-512 Rear Visibility Default View

 

NOTE: Additional information note added to Page 6 of Service Procedure.

 

Remedy Available

2018-2020 (LD) Dodge Charger Pursuit (Police)

 

NOTE:  This recall applies only to the above pursuit vehicles equipped with “Stealth Mode”.

 

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

Body Control Module (BCM) software on about 26,360 of the above vehicles may not meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 111 which requires that the rear visibility system default to the rearview image being visible, at the beginning of each backing event, regardless of any modifications to the field of view that the driver had previously selected. Suspect vehicles are equipped with a “stealth mode” that disables the rearview image when selected and the system does not default to displaying the rearview image at the beginning of the next backing event after being engaged. The vehicle operator will notice that the rearview image is not displayed if attempting to reference the image while backing. If this warning is not heeded, backing without verifying it is safe to do so, could lead to an increased risk of injury to people outside the vehicle.

 

Repair

Inspect the BCM software level and if necessary, update the BCM software to disable stealth mode when the vehicle is shifted into REVERSE.

 

Parts Information

BCM software update, 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 MicroPod II
➢ NPN Laptop Computer
➢ NPN wiTECH Software

 

Service Procedure

NOTE: The wiTECH scan tool must be used to perform this recall.  If the reprogramming flash for the BCM is aborted or interrupted, repeat the procedure. The BCM software must be at the latest software calibration level after completing this Recall.

 

  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 MicroPod 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.

 

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

 

  1. From the “Topology” tab, select the “BCM” module icon.

 

  1. From the “Flash” tab, compare the “Current Electronic Control Unit (ECU) Part Number” with the “New ECU Part Number” listed.
  • If the “Current ECU part Number” is the same as the “New Part Number”, proceed to Step 15.
  • If the “Current ECU part Number” is NOT the same as the “New Part Number”, continue with Step 10.

 

  1. From the BCM tab, select the BCM flash part number. Read the flash special instructions page.  Select “OK” to continue.

 

  1. From the flash ECU agreement page, agree to terms by checking the box.

 

  1. Select “Flash ECU” and then follow the wiTECH screen instructions to complete the flash.

 

NOTE: During the flash process a message will appear to place the ignition in the “OFF” position then later back to “RUN” again.

 

  1. Confirm the software is at the latest available calibration level.

 

  1. Click “View DTCs”, select “Clear All DTCs”, click “Continue” and then click “Close”.

 

  1. From the “Activities” heading in the left column, select “Guided Diagnostics”.

 

  1. Within “Guided Diagnostics”, select “Restore Vehicle Configuration” then follow the screen prompts.

 

  1. Power down the vehicle by placing the ignition in the “OFF” position, disconnect the wiTECH MicroPod II device from the vehicle, and close the door. Allow the bus to go to sleep.

 

NOTE: If technician does not wait long enough for bus to enter sleep mode, it may result in the A/C being inoperative due to the compressor clutch not engaging. If this occurs, use wiTECH to select the HVAC module icon then from the Guided Diagnostic tab, select Reset ECU and follow the screen prompts.

 

  1. Connect the wiTECH MicroPod II device to the vehicle data link connector.

 

  1. Place the ignition in the “RUN” position.

 

  1. Within the wiTECH 2.0 website “Vehicle Selection” screen, select the appropriate vehicle.

 

  1. Select the “ALL DTCs” tab, select “Clear All DTCs”, click “Continue” and then click “Close”.

 

  1. Place the ignition in the “OFF” position and then remove the wiTECH MicroPod II device from the vehicle.

 

  1. Remove the battery charger from the vehicle.

 

  1. Close the engine compartment hood and return the vehicle to the customer or inventory.
