Advisory details

On certain vehicles, the engine calibration for the “limp home” mode was inadvertently set too high at 1750 rpm instead of 1200 rpm. Should the “limp home” mode be activated, the increased idle speed may cause sudden and unexpected acceleration, which could result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to slow or stop the vehicle if the transmission is not shifted into neutral. This could result in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will install updated engine calibration software.
