Safety Recall S26 / NHTSA 16V-303Reprogram Power Inverter Module
Cars: 2013 - 2016 (FF) Fiat 500e
NOTE: This recall applies only to the above Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) vehicles built from October 03, 2012 through January 29, 2016 (MDH 100307 through 012902).
The Power Inverter Module (PIM) on about 16,500 of the above vehicles may have diagnostic software that is overly sensitive. During normal vehicle operation, the PIM may falsely diagnose an over-voltage condition in the ground circuit setting Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC’s) PA1EE and/or P0A1B. The consequence of setting these DTC’s is a loss of motive power. This could cause a crash without warning.
The PIM must be reprogramed with new diagnostic software.
Had the recall done the first week it was available & I'm still experiencing the 'Service Propulsion System' error.
This pops up about once a month & the software fix doesn't seem to have changed anything. When it occurs, the car pops into N and will only go into P or N, until I reset the 12V circuit.
Is there -any- way to independently verify the software version?
So, keep your 10mm wrench handy.
