CLAIM INFORMATION

Reimbursement Time: 1.4 hours

NOTE: This time includes the PDI of the navigation system, if equipped.

 

PDI PROCEDURES

Before Starting Review these items:

  • Perfect Delivery documents, especially the information on battery maintenance and tire pressures
  • Checklist in the PDI and Final Delivery Checklist booklet

Make sure you record the PDI on the appropriate pages of the checklist. The PDI is not done until this bulletin and the checklist are both complete. Note on the repair order any repairs or problems that cannot be fixed within a few minutes. Remove all PDI items from the trunk, interior, and glove box.

 

Models with Push Button Start

To prevent parasitic draw, the vehicle comes from the factory with the No. 21 BACKUP (10 A) fuse removed from the main under-hood fuse box. With it removed, the engine will not start when you apply the brake pedal and press the ENGINE START/STOP button.  

To start the engine with the No. 21 fuse removed, you must do this:

  1. Make sure the shift lever is in Park, then press the ENGINE START/STOP button once.

  1. Start the engine by pressing the ENGINE START/STOP button while pressing the brake pedal. You must start the engine within 10 seconds of touching the remote to the button.

 

.

1. Fuel the Vehicle

Make sure the No. 21 BACKUP (10 A) fuse is installed before filling up the fuel tank (see “Install the Fuses”). If you do it without that fuse installed, the fuel gauge will take much longer than normal to show an accurate reading.

If this happens and you do not want to wait for the gauge to show the correct level, turn the ignition to OFF and let the vehicle sit for 10 minutes. Install the fuse, then turn the ignition to ON. The fuel gauge will show the correct level.

 

.

2. Remove the Exterior Protective Coatings

Carefully remove all of the exterior protective coatings. See S/B 03-080, Removal of Protective Coatings During PDI.

 

.

3. Install the Fuses

To prevent battery drain during vehicle shipping, the No. 21 BACKUP (10 A) and No. 22 AUDIO (10 A) fuses are removed from the under-hood fuse box and stored in the glove box.

No. 21 BACKUP (10 A) and No. 22 AUDIO (10 A) fuses

 

To remove the under-hood fuse box cover without damaging it, you must release the tabs, raise up the cover slightly to clear the fuse box, slide it back toward the engine compartment bulkhead, then tilt and remove it between the bulkhead and the cross brace. If you try to remove the cover by pulling it over the air cleaner, you could damage it.

Make sure you turn the ignition to OFF and wait for at least 1 minute before reinstalling the No. 21 fuse. Once you install it and turn the ignition to ON, the indicator in the ENGINE START/STOP button will go off (if applicable) and any DTCs will be cleared. Install the No. 22 fuse.

 

.

Vehicle Interior

4. Remove the Interior Protective Coverings

There are several protective coverings on the interior trim pieces and on some areas of the carpet. Carefully remove all of them. Be sure your hands are clean to avoid soiling any surfaces.

If the vehicle has a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remove the protective covering by pulling the top toward you.  Do not try removing it by pulling the top away and down from you or you will damage the cable reel.

Under-Hood (Engine Cold)

6. Check the Battery

To ensure long battery life and that the customer gets a fully charged battery, it must be checked at these times:

  • When the vehicle first arrives at the dealership
  • During the PDI, if done at a later date
  • At regular intervals
  • Just before vehicle delivery

Test the battery with the ED-18 battery tester using S/B 88-023, Battery Testing and Replacement. Do not use the battery’s test indicator window to check its state of charge. If the ED-18 does not show GOOD BATTERY, charge the battery with the GR8 battery diagnostic station.

Write down the GOOD BATTERY 10-digit code in the PDI and Final Delivery Checklist booklet. During the PDI, write down the code in the “Under HoodEngine Cold” section. Then, at vehicle delivery, write it down in the “Final Inspection (At Delivery)” section.

NOTE: Make sure the ED-18 has the latest software installed before using it. See S/B 09-045, ED-18 Battery Tester Update Information.

.

9. Set the Tire Pressures

Set the tire pressures according to the driver’s doorjamb label. Make sure the tires are normalized (at ambient temperature) when checking and setting the pressures.

 

.

10. Start the TPMS Calibration Process

This vehicle has an indirect TPMS. Unlike other systems that directly measure air pressure, an indirect TPMS uses the wheel speed sensors to monitor and compare tire characteristics while driving and determine when one or more tires are significantly underinflated.

To ensure proper operation, you must inflate all four tires to the cold inflation pressures listed on the driver’s doorjamb label and start the TPMS calibration process during the PDI using the applicable procedure below.

 

All Models Except Touring

With the shift lever in Park, turn the ignition to ON. Press and hold the TPMS button until the Low Tire Pressure/TPMS indicator blinks twice, telling you the calibration process has begun. Once started, the calibration will complete on its own.

.

Under-Hood (Engine Idling)

11. Do the Idle Learn Procedure

To ensure a steady engine idle, do the idle learn procedure after installing the No. 21 BACKUP (10 A) fuse.

  1. Make sure all electrical items (A/C, audio unit, rear window defogger, lights, etc.) are turned off.
  2. Start the engine and let it reach operating temperature (the cooling fans cycle twice).
  3. Let the engine idle for 10 minutes with the throttle fully closed.

The idle learn procedure must also be done after updating or replacing the PCM. If does not need to be done after clearing DTCs.

 

.

12. Do the CKP-Pattern Learn Procedure

To ensure proper engine operation, do the CKP-pattern learn procedure after doing the idle learn procedure. Do it on a level road during your PDI test-drive.

The procedure consists of a low- and high-rpm pattern learn. Make sure you do the low-rpm pattern learn first.

  1. Low-rpm Pattern Learn: Shift to D and decelerate from 2,500 rpm to 1,000 rpm with the throttle fully closed.
  2. High-rpm Pattern Learn: Shift to 1st and decelerate from 5,000 rpm to 3,000 rpm with the throttle fully closed.

 

.

Vehicle Interior

13. Install the Shift Lock Release Cover (A/T Models)

Install the shift lock release cover as shown. Be sure to install it with the longer tab in front. Installing it backwards will damage the cover.

.

14. Check Remote Engine Start

Starting the Engine

NOTE: Make sure all doors, the hood, and the tailgate are closed before remotely starting the engine.

Press the Lock button, then, within 5 seconds, press and hold the Remote Engine Start button. When the engine starts to crank, release the Remote Engine Start button. The engine will run for 10 minutes. If the engine did not start, the remote was not able to communicate with the vehicle.

While the remote engine start is on, the climate control system adjusts the cabin temperature, the security system stays on, and the gauges, exterior lights, and accessories stay off. Even though the engine keeps running when you open the driver’s door with the remote, you need to press down on the brake pedal and press the ENGINE START/STOP button to turn on the gauges, exterior lights, and accessories, and to shift out of Park.

 

Stopping the Engine

The engine will stop running after 10 minutes. If you want to stop the engine before that time is up, press and hold the Remote Engine Start button until the engine shuts off.  If the engine does not shut off, the remote was unable to communicate with the vehicle.

 

.

15. Check Parking Brake Adjustment

The parking brake pedal should lock within five to seven clicks with 196 N·m (44 lb-ft) of force applied. If it does not lock within this specification, adjust the parking brake cable.

Remember that cable tension is critical. If you adjust the cable too loose, the parking brake might not sufficiently hold the vehicle and the cable may rattle while driving. If you adjust it too tight, the parking brake may drag or overheat. An  over-tightened cable can also cause the parking brake shoes to lift off the anchor block and rattle while driving.
