Flash: Engine Oil Temp Too Low After Extended Idle
Customers may experience a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination or the following symptoms. Upon further investigation the technician may find the Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) listed below:
- P1239 Engine Oil Temperature Too Low.
- Perceived misfire under normal acceleration.
- Starter protection feature will be disabled.
Using a Scan Tool (wiTECH) with the appropriate Diagnostic Procedures available in TechCONNECT, verify all vehicle systems are functioning as designed. If DTCs other than the ones listed above are present record them on the repair order and repair as necessary before proceeding further with this bulletin.
If the customer describes the symptom condition above or the tech finds any of the DTCs set, perform the Repair Procedure.
NOTE: If this flash process is interrupted/aborted, the flash should be restarted.
- Reprogram the PCM with the latest available software. Detailed instructions for flashing 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:
- Clear any DTCs that may have been set in any modules due to reprogramming. The wiTECH application will automatically present all DTCs after the flash and allow them to be cleared.
Reimbursable within the provisions of the warranty.

- If the customer’s concern matches the SYMPTOM/CONDITION identified in the Service Bulletin, than failure code CC is to be used.
- If an available flash is completed while addressing a different customer concern, failure code RF is to be used.
