UPDATE.............Now the dealer doesn't feel the problem is remote starter related. They disconnected it, tried again and they still cant get the flash/update to load onto my PCM.
He said this was the first time they loaded this flash, so Im thinking this may be a brand new update....Just be careful and ask about it if you guys are going in for service in the near future.
Hope this gets solved soon

I just had my 2010 at the dealer this past Saturday for oil change. Came to p/u and they told me they attemted to do the flash update....But it "didnt take", and they had to wait until Monday to contact Chrysler for help.
They were sincere and gave me a loaner....Figured sh** happens and they would take care of it.
latest update is they got a new ECU from Chrysler, put it in, same thing happened. They called Chrysler and the tech asked the dealer if i had a aftermarket remote starter or alarm .....and I have a remore starter. Well, this guy told the dealer that the remote start if affecting the update.
So the dealer called the guy who installed my starter to try to work this out.
I spoke to the starter install guy yesterday after he talked to the dealer.....I've known this guy for a long time and he claims to have NEVER run into this before.
So the question is......Has anybody who has had this flash done have a remote start?

|Weed Hopper||If anyone is following this thread, I've been thru 2 tanks of gas since the pcm update was done and see no noticable difference in mpg. Like I posted before, the only thing I've noticed from the update was the compass response.|

|Salo||I do all my maintenance myself so besides the BS the dealership might pitch me on (clean TB, flush coolant, blah blah blah) when I bring it in for K13 brake recall, do they normally run VIN to see if there are other recalls or updates or do I have to mention them specifically?|

|Salo||Going in thu 3/31 for k13 brake recall...how do I tell them to look for the PCM update?|

I took my Sahara in today for an oil change and tire rotation. When I went to pay they said they also did a flash upgrade on the pcm. From the paperwork:
PERFORM RRT 10-066 RAPID RESPONSE
REPROGRAM PCM TO LATEST REVISION
BILL CODE - W
181906H5 REPROGRAM PCM
Has anyone figured out exactly what this upgrade addressed? The only thing I noticed right off was the compass responds to direction changes alot faster. I track my mileage and maintenance with software, I'll let you know if I see a difference in mpg in the future.

|SeaComms||By ECO light, do you mean when pushing the button and swapping between displays and one that says ECO and ocasionally ECO ON? Thats the only one I have, on a March 2010 buillt petrol 6 speed.|

|John412||Just to throw this in. MY JK was built in 6/2010 as a 2010 and does not have the ECO light function, just the MPG read out. I too find the 1-2 shift tough, typically when its cold.|

|ESP||yeah man I'm leaning more towards just putting 33's on but I've got 3.21 gears and enjoy such great MPG that it may give me a heart attack to go so large. At the same time, would be really good to see my rig sitting on 33 duratracs or KM2s....mmmm new tires.|

Whatever the problem was in 2010 that made it useless (based on an earlier ECO light thread), it's not the same for 2011, so hopefully I won't see my ECO light disappear after an update some time down the road....

From the dealer:
This bulletin applies to all JK veheicles equipped with a 3.8L engine (sales code EGT) and a 6 speed manual transmission (sales code DEH) built before April 16th, 2010 (MDH 0416XX).
He's wrong. The update is for manual Jeeps but I beleive some autos have gotten flashed too. Look into it at another dealer location.
|01-20-2011 12:58 PM|
|phottomatt||Hmmm, just called my dealer, he said that update was for the autos only. But I don't have much faith in my dealership service department, I'm going to try a different dealership next time I need something.|

I've now driven around town several times since the flash with my manual transmission.
I'm really, really surprised by the results. Previously, I'd had a mystery "hitch" shifting to second. Sometimes the gear would even grind a bit before it set in, or I'd have to double clutch or pause in neutral for a second or two before shifting to second from first. This felt like a mechanical/synchronizer problem to me, so I figured the flash wouldn't fix it.
I was incorrect--it's now as smooth from first to second as it is in every other gear. Really surprising. It also feels a bit peppier taking off from stops, but that may just be because I can shift more smoothly.
Whatever the case, if you've got a 2010, I highly recommend you call your dealer and have them check to see if your VIN is up RRT 10-066.
