NOTE:  Effective immediately, all repairs on involved vehicles are to be performed according to this recall. TSB 25-02-99 is being canceled.


Note: This recall applies to the above vehicles built through October 28, 1999 (MDH 102820). Many of the vehicles within the above date have already been inspected or repaired and, therefore, have been excluded from this recall.

To correct this condition, the ECM software must be updated (reflashed).

These instructions are from recall 8001, and should be similar - Dave

The ECM software which is loaded during the recall procedure also includes any other ECM updates which may have been released (i.e. TSB's) between the date of manufacture and the issuance of the TIL CD update which was used.

NOTE: The Mopar Diagnostic System is required to perform the ECM flash. The system must be operating with release 21 or higher and TIL CD RELEASE 1169 or higher must be installed.

NOTE: Diagnostic Trouble Codes (1693/1694) may turn on the "check engine" light during the ECM reflash procedure. Check for and erase these codes before returning vehicle to customer.
