2005-2006 TRIBUTE - 3.0L - LONG CRANK/HARD START

APPLICABLE MODEL(S)/VINS

2005-2006 Tribute 3.0L built from July 19, 2004 through December 5, 2005

DESCRIPTION
Some vehicles may exhibit a long crank/hard start under either cold or hot engine conditions. Customers having this concern should have their vehicle repaired using the following repair procedure.

REPAIR PROCEDURE
1. Reboot the PDS/IDS to clear memory before reprogramming.

2. Using PDS/IDS B41.1 or later software, reprogram the PCM to the latest calibration (refer to "Calibration Information"; table) by following the "Module Reprogramming"; procedure.
NOTE:
- Always update the PDS/IDS tool first, then follow on-screen instructions to download the needed calibration file for PCM reprogramming.
- It is not necessary to remove any fuses or relays during PCM reprogramming when the PDS/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 PDS/IDS reprogramming procedure.
- PDS/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 PDS/IDS software, and additional revisions made to those calibrations for service related concerns.
- When reprogramming a PCM, PDS/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.
- When performing this procedure, we recommend that a battery charger be installed on the vehicle battery and turned ON to a maximum charge of no more than 20 AMPS to keep the vehicle battery up to capacity. If you exceed 20 AMPS, it could damage the VCM.
- Install an "Authorized Modification"; label (P/N 9999-95-AMDC-97) with the new calibration information next to the Emission Control sticker on the radiator support. The "Authorized Modification"; label will inform technicians of the PCM calibration change if future repairs are necessary.


3. After performing the PCM reprogramming procedure, verify the repair by starting the engine and making sure there are no MIL illumination or abnormal warning lights present.
NOTE:
- If any DTCs should remain after performing DTC erase, diagnose the DTCs according to the appropriate Troubleshooting section of the Workshop Manual.
- After PCM reprogramming, it is no longer necessary to road test the vehicle to "relearn" KAM (Keep Alive Memory).
