Some customer using “Flexible” setting for Oil Change in the maintenance monitor may notice that the oil change due notification will not work because of improper control logic of the PCM. This TSB is applicable for the following cases.

  • The oil change due notification does not come on, even after mileage exceeded 10,000 miles.
  • Oil life in the center display is still less than 40% even though the mileage exceeded 7,000 miles.

To display “Flexible” setting and “Oil life” on the center screen, select the “Applications” screen, “Maintenance”, then “Oil Change” tab. For complete details, refer to the “MAINTENANCE MONITOR OPERATION PROCEDURE” in the Workshop Manual.

Customers having this concern should have their vehicle repaired using the following repair procedure.



  1. Reboot the IDS to clear memory before reprogramming.
  2. Using IDS 96.01 or later software, reprogram the PCM to the latest calibration (refer to “Calibration Information” table) by following the “Module Reprogramming” procedure.


  • Verify the current PCM file name in the vehicle by the log view screen. If it is the same as found in the chart below (or later), it is not necessary to reprogram the PCM.
  • Always update the IDS tool first, then follow the on-screen instructions to download the calibration file for PCM reprogramming.
  • Refer to “Service Caution for reprogramming” on MS3 IDS Page.
  • After reprogramming, verify the file name matches with the chart below.


  • It is not necessary to remove any fuses or relays during PCM reprogramming when the IDS screen prompts you to do so. You may accidentally stop power to one of the PCM terminals and cause the PCM to be blanked, or you may receive error messages during the IDS reprogramming procedure.
  • IDS shows the calibration part numbers after programming the PCM.
  • Please be aware that PCM calibration part numbers and file names listed in any Service Bulletin may change due to future releases of IDS software, and additional revisions made to those calibrations for service related concerns.
  • When reprogramming a PCM, IDS will always display the “latest” calibration P/N available for that vehicle. If any calibration has been revised/updated to contain new information for a new service concern/issue, it will also contain all previously released calibrations.
  • Start/Stop button vehicles only: DO NOT press the start/stop button during the reprogramming process.
  • When performing this procedure, we recommend using the “Power Supply” mode in the Battery Management System to keep the vehicle battery up to capacity. If a different charger is used, make sure it does not exceed 20 AMPS. If it exceeds 20 AMPS, it could damage the VCM.
  1. After performing the PCM reprogramming procedure, clear DTCs.
  2. After clearing DTCs, start the engine and confirm that no warning lights stay on.


  • If any DTCs should remain after performing DTC erase, diagnose the DTCs using MS3 online instructions or Workshop Manual section 01-02.
  • After PCM reprogramming, it is no longer necessary to road test the vehicle to “relearn” KAM (Keep Alive Memory).
