Recall 01V119000: Seat Belt Retractor

Vehicle Description: Certain van, wagon, pickup trucks, passenger and sport utility vehicles, fail to comply with requirements of FMVSS No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies." The front seat belt retractor may not comply with the requirements of the standard.

If the retractor does not work properly, it will not adequately protect occupants in the event of a crash.

Dealers will replace the seat belt retractor. DaimlerChrysler has not yet provided NHTSA with an owner notification schedule for this campaign.

PCM - MIL ON/Erroneous DTC P1398 (or $BA)

NUMBER: 25-003-01

GROUP: Emissions

DATE: Feb. 23, 2001

SUBJECT:
Erroneous DTC P1398 (or $BA) - No Crank Sensor Learn

OVERVIEW:

This bulletin involves selectively erasing and reprogramming the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) with new software (calibration level 96Cal18 or 97Cal18).

MODELS:
1996 - 1997 (AB) Ram Van
1996 - 1997 (AN) Dakota
1996 - 1997 (BR/BE)Ram Truck
1997 (TJ) Wrangler
1996 - 1997 (XJ) Cherokee
1996 - 1997 (ZJ) Grand Cherokee

NOTE: THIS BULLETIN APPLIES TO VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A GASOLINE ENGINE.

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:

A customer may experience a MIL (Check Engine Lamp) illumination due to an erroneous DTC P1398 - No Crank Sensor Learn. This DTC may also be
displayed as a $BA - Adaptive Numerator at Limit. This condition may be
caused by a momentary drop in the supply voltage to the powertrain control module.

This condition may occur when a normal, or higher, electrical load is applied to the battery. A momentary drop in the supply voltage to the PCM may be caused by a marginal battery or poor electrical connections from the battery to the PCM. The condition may be further aggravated by cold ambient temperatures or when the vehicle has been left unused for an extended period of time.

DIAGNOSIS:

1. Verify the calibration level of the PCM software. If the PCM software is at 96Cal18 or 97Cal18, or higher, then this TSB does not apply. Further diagnosis is required.

2. If PCM software is earlier (lower or less) than either 96Cal18 or 97Cal18, then perform the Repair Procedure.






PARTS REQUIRED:





EQUIPMENT REQUIRED:

NOTE: THE MDS2 MUST BE OPERATING AT CIS CD 2077 OR HIGHER.

REPAIR PROCEDURE:

1. Reprogram the PCM using the MDS2 (Mopar Diagnostic System) and the DRBIII(R) (Scan Tool).

NOTE: DUE TO THE PCM REPROGRAMMING PROCEDURE, A DTC MAY BE SET IN OTHER MODULES (BCM, MIC, SKIM, ETC.) WITHIN THE VEHICLE, IF SO EQUIPPED. SOME DTC'S MAY CAUSE THE MIL TO ILLUMINATE. ALL DTC'S RELATE TO A LOSS OF COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN MODULES. CHECK ALL MODULES, RECORD THE FAULTS, AND ERASE THESE FAULTS PRIOR TO RETURNING THE VEHICLE TO THE CUSTOMER. ERASE ANY FAULTS IN THE PCM LAST, AFTER ALL OTHER MODULES HAVE HAD THEIR FAULTS ERASE.

NOTE: THE FOLLOWING STEPS ARE REQUIRED BY LAW.





2. Type the necessary information on the "Authorized Software Update Label" p/n 04669020 (Fig. 1). Attach the label to the Powertrain Control Module and cover the label with the clear plastic overlay.

Rather than clutter up the top of the board with stickies, I decided to link to this thread from the FAQ (which is already a stickie). That way the folks that are interested can go right to it, and those that aren't don't have to wade through it...

I don't really have any more detail available than what comes in the TSB.
Putting it all in a searchable database is a great idea, but I don't think we have that option here. Besides the normal requirements, any host would have to always be up and available to make it work.
As crude as it is, by posting the TSB's this way, anyone looking for a particular TSB can do a control 'F' and search the thread on a keyword. That should get them into the TSB that addresses their particular issue.

Thanks for the suggestions!

NUMBER: 21-08-99
GROUP: Transmission
DATE: April 30, 1999
SUBJECT:
"Buzz", "Whining", Or "Moaning" Like Noise From A Cold Transmission When Reverse Is Selected.
OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves replacing the transmission regulator valve.
MODELS:
1996 - 1999 (AB) Ram Van
1996 - 1999 (AN) Dakota
1996 - 1999 (BR/BE) Ram Truck
1998 - 1999 (DN) Durango
1996 - 1999 (TJ) Wrangler
1996 - 1999 (XJ) Cherokee
1996 - 1998 (ZJ) Grand Cherokee
1999 (WJ) Grand Cherokee
NOTE :THIS INFORMATION APPLIES TO VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A RE OR RH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION.
SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
Some vehicles may exhibit an intermittent noise from the transmission when reverse gear is selected. This noise has been described as a "buzz", whining", or "moaning" like noise. The noise is most noticeable when transmission fluid temperature is below 38 C. (100 F.). The condition is caused by a resonance of the transmission regulator valve system.
Other items may cause regulator valve resonance, including air ingestion into the valve body or out of specification parts. These two items may be the result a possible cracked pump housing, a torn pump gasket, an under filled transmission, a restricted fluid filter or cooler flow, or an out of specification valve and/or valve body. You should remember these additional items / components when you perform your diagnosis.
Vehicles built prior to August 1, 1995 may experience this condition if either a transmission valve body or an entire automatic transmission was replaced with components manufactured after August 1, 1995.
DIAGNOSIS:
Using the Diagnostic Scan Tool (DRB III(R)) with the appropriate Diagnostics Procedure Manual, verify all engine and transmission systems are functioning as designed. If Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's) are present, record them on the repair order and repair as necessary before proceeding further with this bulletin.
For 1996 and 1997 model year product, review Technical Service Bulletin 21-11-97 Rev A to determine if it applies to this vehicle before attempting to complete the analysis or repairs described in this bulletin.
In most instances, the sump temperature of vehicles exhibiting transmission regulator valve resonance in reverse has been less than 38 C. (100 F). If possible, allow the suspect vehicle to remain parked in a cool place overnight. Then perform the following steps:
1. Set the vehicle parking brake.
2. Start the engine (make certain windows are closed, to eliminate outside noise).
3. With brakes applied, place the transmission selector lever in reverse.
4. Listen for any buzz/moaning/whining like noises as the transmission sump temperature rises to normal operating temperature (180 - 210 degrees F).
5. If a buzz/moaning/whining like noise is present, perform the Repair Procedure.
PARTS REQUIRED:
1 04130169 Valve, Steel Transmission Regulator
1 02464324 Gasket, Transmission Pan
AR 05010124AA Fluid, ATF Plus 3, Type 7176E
EQUIPMENT REQUIRED:
1 C-3763 Gauge Tool, Throttle Pressure Adjustment
REPAIR PROCEDURE:
1. Following the procedures in the applicable service manual, remove the valve body from the transmission (Refer to Group 21 of the appropriate Service Manual - TRANSMISSION AND TRANSFER CASE - AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION section - REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION).


2. Remove the screws holding the adjusting screw bracket and replace the regulator valve with p/n 04130169 (Figure 1). Install the adjusting screw bracket
3. Verify and adjust, if necessary, both the line pressure and the throttle pressure settings by following the procedures in the service manual (Refer to Group 21 of the appropriate Service Manual - TRANSMISSION AND TRANSFER CASE - AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION section - ADJUSTMENTS - VALVE BODY).

Recall - Front Brake Rotor Corrosion

June 2000
Safety Recall No. 879--Front Brake Rotors
Models:
1996-1998 (ZJ) Jeep(R) Grand Cherokee
1996-1999 (XJ) Jeep Cherokee
NOTE : This recall applies only to the above XJ model vehicles built through October 15, 1998 (MDH 1015XX),
NOTE : Only the above vehicles sold or currently registered in "Salt Belt" states (where large amounts of road salt are used for snow and ice removal) are involved. (See "Owner Notification & Service Scheduling" section for a listing of salt belt states.)
IMPORTANT :Some of the involved vehicles may be in dealer used vehicle inventory. Dealers should complete this recall service on these vehicles before retail delivery. Dealers should also perform this recall on vehicles in for service. Involved vehicles can be determined by using the DIAL VIP System.
Subject
Corrosion of the front brake rotors on about 635,000 of the above vehicles may cause separation of the rotor disc from the center hub (hat) section. This condition results from operating the vehicle for extended periods in geographic areas using large amounts of road salt for snow and ice removal. Rotor separation may cause a reduction of brake effectiveness for the affected wheel, which may increase stopping distance, cause the vehicle to pull to one side when braking and cause an accident without warning.
Repair
Both front brake rotors must be inspected and replaced if necessary. This recall does NOT include replacement of any other brake components. If other brake service is required (brake pads, caliper, etc.), the additional associated costs are the owner's responsibility.
Parts Information
IMPORTANT : Due to the likelihood that the required parts are already in dealer inventory, no parts will be distributed to involved dealers. Dealers may order as many rotors as necessary to support anticipated repairs.
Part Number Description
05015965AA Brake Rotor
Each part number above is for one brake rotor. Be sure to order two rotors per vehicle.
Completion Reporting and Reimbursement
Claims for vehicles that have been serviced must be submitted on the DIAL System. Claims submitted will be used by DaimlerChrysler to record recall service completions and provide dealer payments.


Use one of the labor operation numbers and time allowances shown.
Add the cost of the brake rotor(s) plus applicable dealer allowance to your claim
NOTE : See the Warranty Administration Manual, Recall Claim Processing Section, for complete recall claim processing instructions.
Parts Return
Not required.
Dealer Notification and Vehicle List
All dealers will receive a copy of this dealer recall notification letter by first class mail. Two additional copies will be sent through the DCMMS, and the MDS2 will be updated to include this recall in the near future. Each dealer to whom involved vehicles were invoiced (or the current dealer at the same street address) will receive a list of their involved vehicles. The vehicle list is arranged in Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) sequence. Owners known to DaimlerChrysler are also listed. The lists are for dealer reference in arranging for service of involved vehicles.
DIAL System Functions 53 and VIP
All involved vehicles will be entered to DIAL System Functions 53 and VIP at the time of recall implementation for dealer inquiry as needed.
Function 53 provides involved dealers with an updated VIN list of their incomplete vehicles. The customer name, address and phone number are listed if known. Completed vehicles are removed from Function 53 within several days of repair claim submission. To use this system, type "53" at the "ENTER FUNCTION" prompt, then type "0RD879".
Owner Notification and Service Scheduling
All involved vehicle owners known to DaimlerChrysler are being notified of the service requirement by first class mail. They are requested to schedule appointments for this service with their dealers. A copy of the owner letter is shown.
Enclosed with each owner notification is an Owner Notification Form. The involved vehicle and recall are identified on the form for owner or dealer reference as needed.


Only vehicles sold or currently registered in "Salt Belt" states (where large amounts of road salt are used for snow and ice removal) are involved. These states are "Salt Belt" states:
Vehicle Not Available
If a vehicle is not available for service, let us know by filling out the pre-addressed Owner Notification Form or describe the reason on a postcard and mail to:

Recall - Front Brake Rotor Corrosion Service Procedure

1. Raise vehicle to working level on an appropriate hoist.
2. Remove both front wheel and tire assemblies.


3. Inspect both front brake rotors carefully for the presence of an "S" stamped on the face of the hat section (the "S" is very lightly stamped in the rotor face and may be difficult to read) (Figure 1).
If there is an "S" stamped on both rotors, the rotors have already been replaced with stainless steel rotors and do not require replacement. Reinstall the front wheel and tire assemblies and return the vehicle to the owner. No further action is necessary.
If neither rotor or only one rotor has an "S" stamped on it, continue with Step 4 to replace the rotor(s) without an "S" stamp.



4. Remove the caliper mounting bolts (Figure 2).


5. Tilt the top of the caliper outward (Figure 3). Use a pry tool if necessary.


6. Set the caliper aside (Figure 4). Secure the caliper to the suspension with a wire.
CAUTION : Do not allow the brake hose to support the weight of the caliper.


7. Remove the retainers that secure the brake rotor to the hub studs (Figure 5).
8. Remove and discard the brake rotor.
9. Clean the rotor hub and brake pad mounting ledges with a wire brush.

10. Remove the protective coating from the new rotor.
11. Install a new rotor on the hub.
NOTE : It is NOT necessary to inspect the new rotor for the presence of an "S" on the rotor face.


12. Install the caliper assembly (Figure 6). Position the mounting notches at the lower end of the brake shoes on the bottom mounting ledge and then rotate the caliper over the rotor and seat the notches at the upper end of the shoes on the mounting ledge.
13. Install the caliper mounting bolts - and tighten to 132 in-lbs (15 Nm).
14. Repeat Steps 4-13 for the other front brake rotor (if necessary).
15. Install both front wheel and tire assemblies. Tighten the lug nuts to:
^ 75 ft-lbs (102 Nm) on XJ vehicles.
^ 88 ft-lbs (120 Nm) on ZJ vehicles.

16. Lower the vehicle.
17. Pump the brake pedal to seat the caliper piston(s).
18. Check the brake fluid level and adjust as necessary.
19. Road test the vehicle to verify proper brake operation.

Recall 00V136000: Front Disc Brake Rotor Corrosion

Passenger and multi-purpose vehicles originally sold in (or are currently registered in) the States of Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, or Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia. The front disc brake rotors can experience severe corrosion if operated for an extensive period in the "salt belt." If the rotors are not replaced, the corrosion can eventually compromise the structural integrity of the stamped steel center hub section of the rotor.
The reduced strength can allow the cast iron wear surface to separate from the hub, reducing the brake effectiveness of the vehicle.
Dealers will replace these rotors with rotors that are coated with a corrosion protection.
Owner notification began June 5, 2000. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact DaimlerChrysler at 1-800-992-1997. Also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Auto Safety Hotline at 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).

Front Hub Seals - Grease Purge Explanation

NUMBER: 02-06-99 Rev. A
GROUP: Suspension
DATE: Dec. 17, 1999
THIS BULLETIN SUPERSEDES TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 02-06-99, DATED JUNE 11, 1999, WHICH SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM YOUR FILES. ALL REVISIONS ARE HIGHLIGHTED WITH **ASTERISKS** AND INCLUDE THE ADDITION OF 4X2 MODELS AND ADDITIONAL MODEL YEARS.
SUBJECT:
Front Wheel Bearing Grease Is Evident On The Bearing Seal Area.
MODELS:
1997 - **2000** (AN) Dakota
1994 - **2000** (BR/BE) Ram Truck
1998 - **2000** (DN) Durango
DISCUSSION:
Front wheel bearings may be incorrectly diagnosed as faulty due to the evidence of wheel bearing grease on the bearing seal areas. This grease purge is a normal design condition. The factory fill of the bearings includes a slightly greater amount of grease than is required for the bearing lifetime lubricant. A portion of the grease purges through the self-venting seal in the initial few thousand miles to form an additional barrier in the area of the seal and the stamped slinger. This barrier aids in the prevention of contaminants passing through the seal and into the bearing. Do not remove or clean the purged grease as part of normal maintenance due to the fact that it provides additional protection and once removed, damage to the seal and bearing could result.
NOTE :UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS, THERE MAY BE A SPLATTERING OF GREASE RADIALLY OUTWARD ON THE STEERING KNUCKLE FROM THE GREASE BARRIER AREA THAT CAN BE AS THICK AS 4 MM (0.125 IN.).
Front wheel bearings should be replaced only if:
The seal shows visible damage
The bearing endplay is greater than 0.13 mm (0.005 in.)
The bearing was operated without the proper clamping force from the spindle nut
The bearing has a rough, sticky feel when rotated

Heated Seat - Inoperative

NUMBER: 08-03-99
GROUP: Electrical
DATE: Feb, 5, 1999
SUBJECT:
Inoperative heated seat.
OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves installing heated seat heating element repair kits.
MODELS:
1996 - 1998 (ZJ) Grand Cherokee
1996 - 1998 (ZJ) Grand Cherokee
SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The heated seat may be inoperative due to an open circuit in the heating element located in the seat cover. The condition is usually present in the seat bottom. This Technical Service Bulletin provides a Repair Procedure, which eliminates the need to replace the seat bottom cover.
