Report A Problem

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.

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.

The thermostat may fail causing illumination of the Check Engine Light. A failed thermostat will require replacement.

The engine may be hard to start and/or illuminate the Check Engine Light with code P0340/P0344 stored. The common repair is to update the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) software. In some cases replacement of the camshaft position sensor may also be required.

The hard drive for the MYGIG radio may become corrupt. Symptoms would include: The radio does not go past the "Navigation is being activated" screen, music on the hard drive cannot be accessed, capacity of the hard drive shows 0. If all three of these symptoms are present the MYGIG radio software will require updating.

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 oil change monitor may illuminate prematurely. A powertrain control module (PCM) software update is available which should 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 significant vibration with moderate braking at highway speeds may develop on vehicles stored outdoors for 3 months or more. This condition may be due to corrosion on the brake rotors. Our technicians tell us that normal driving for about a week should eliminate this issue.

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.

Spark knock, noise/vibration/harshness, and/or Check Engine Light issues may develop. Our technicians tell us powertrain control module (PCM) software upgrades may correct these concerns.

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.

On Vehicles with a 4.7L or 5.7L V8 engine, the Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P2181 for a cooling system performance fault. Or technicians tell us that updated software for the powertrain control module (PCM) is available to 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.

The fuel tank may become hard to fill and/or the fuel fill nozzle may shut off repeatedly while fueling. Our technicians tell us that various items including the fuel tank, vapor recirculation tube, fuel fill tube, or EVAP system canister control valve may be at fault. Proper diagnoses will be required to determine the exact cause of this concern.
