Engine Will Not Crank With Clutch Engaged, Or May Crank Without Clutch Engaged

The engine may crank over with the clutch pedal not depressed, or the engine may not crank over with the clutch pedal depressed. The clutch ignition interlock switch will be replaced to correct this problem.

Exterior Heated Mirror Failure

The heated outside rear view mirrors may develop corrosion in the wiring connectors that supply power to them. This can cause a fire hazard. Dealers will modify these wire connectors to provide a separate power feed free of charge to resolve this concern.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System's software fails to register tire pressures at the wheel sensors, automatically indicating low pressure in affected vehicles. Without correct readings, under or over inflated tires will wear and handle unpredictably, causing increased tire wear and a loss of vehicle control and stability under different driving conditions. Dealers will update software that monitors tire pressure to correct this concern.

This is most noticeable when "rock crawling" in 4WD. What I did to improv...
