If the customer describes the symptom/condition listed above perform the Repair Procedure.

- Reprogram the PCM with the latest available software. Detailed instructions for flashing control modules using the wiTECH Diagnostic Application are available by selecting the “HELP” tab on the upper portion of the wiTECH window, then “HELP CONTENTS.” This will open the Welcome to wiTECH Help screen where help topics can be selected.
NOTE: After PCM reprogramming, the following must be performed.
