Known Problems

Vehicles equipped with a MYGIG radio may encounter a dead battery condition. This can be caused by the radio not powering down properly. Flickering of the radio backlighting when the radio should be powered down would indicate a fault requiring replacement of the radio.

The service 4WD system light may illuminate with no fault codes stored in the final drive control module (FDCM). Our technicians tell us a software update for the FDCM is available to correct this concern.

Vehicles with manual temperature control may develop a condition where warm air is coming from the instrument panel outlets when cold has been selected. Our technicians tell us a revised air distribution housing is available to correct this concern.

3.7 V6 and 4.7 V8 engines may develop exhaust leaks due to broken exhaust manifold bolts. Exhaust manifold gaskets and bolts should be replaced as necessary.

A water leak from the sunroof and/or headliner is often caused by clogged or misrouted sunroof drain tubes. Inspecting the sunroof drain tubes should be the first step in checking for the cause of these type of water leaks.

Delayed engagement of the automatic transmission may be due to a faulty internal cooler return filter. Our technicians tell us all cooler filters with the "AB" suffix on the part number are suspect and should be replaced.

EGR valve position sensor fault code(s) may be stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light. A PCM software upgrade is available which may correct this issue.

Owners have reported several instances of the interior door handles coming loose or breaking. The factory door handles are part of the entire door panel, so an OEM or factory repair would require replacement of the door panel at considerable cost. There are multiple aftermarket solutions involving removing the door panel to repair the original assembly, or retrofitting an aftermarket interior handle to address the issue.

An abnormal noise may develop from the HVAC blower motor as a result of debris ingestion. After any debris is removed, an air baffle screen can be installed on the inlet opening under the cowl grill to try and prevent a re-occurrence of the problem.

The oil change monitor may illuminate prematurely. A powertrain control module (PCM) software update is available which should correct this concern.

On Vehicles with a 3.7L V6 or 4.7L V8 engine, the Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P013A and/or P013C. Or technicians tell us that updated software for the powertrain control module (PCM) is available to correct this concern.

Some vehicles may experience a high pitched whistle under light throttle conditions. This can be corrected by resealing the throttle body at the intake manifold using a small amount of rtv sealer.
