Flash: Transmission Shift And Drivability Enhancements
NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with a W5A580 transmission (sales code DGJ).
A small number of customers may experience one or more of the following conditions.
- Less than desired shift response during heavy load or aggressive driving in high ambient temperatures.
- Bump sensation felt while downshifting during coasting deceleration or normal braking (5.7L and 6.4L applications only)
- Less than desired fuel economy.
Using a Scan Tool (wiTECH) with the appropriate Diagnostic Procedures available in TechCONNECT, verify all engine systems are functioning as designed. If DTCs or symptom conditions, other than the ones listed above are present, record the issues on the repair order and repair as necessary before proceeding further with this bulletin.
If the customer describes the symptom/condition listed above, perform the Repair Procedure.
NOTE: If this flash process is interrupted/aborted, the flash should be restarted.
- Reprogram the TCM 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.
- Clear all DTCs that may have been set in any module due to reprogramming. The wiTECH application will automatically present all DTCs after the flash and allow them to be cleared.
