This program extends the warranty coverage of the reductant heater and sender assembly to 11 years of service or 120,000 miles from the warranty start date of the vehicle, whichever occurs first. If a vehicle has already exceeded either the time or mileage limits, this extended warranty coverage will last through December 31, 2018. Coverage is automatically transferred to subsequent owners.
NOTE: This program does not apply to vehicles that qualify for repairs under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Repairs for vehicles covered by New Vehicle Limited Warranty should be claimed using existing published labor operation codes.
VEHICLES COVERED BY THIS PROGRAM
|Vehicle||Model Year||Assembly Plant||Build Dates|

REASON FOR PROVIDING EXTENDED WARRANTY COVERAGE
In some of the affected vehicles, the reductant heater and sender assembly may fail causing the malfunction indictor lamp (MIL) to illuminate and, in some instances, may cause the engine to go into a reduced power de-rate strategy. If this condition exists, diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) related to the reductant heater and sender assembly will be present in the powertrain control module.

Crank/No Start PID List
All 6.0L Diesel engine equipped vehicles experiencing a crank no start condition can be diagnosed by using procedures available in the PC/ED manual. The PIDs listed below are found in the individual steps of the PC/ED > Section 4: Diagnostic Subroutines > Hard Start/No Start diagnostics. This bulletin consolidates them here for quick reference. Reviewing them up front may help to determine which PC/ED test or tests to focus on.
When cranking the engine, monitor the following:
- B+ (VOLT) should be at least 10.5 volts.
- VPWR (VOLT) at least 10.5 volts.
- FICM_LPWR (VOLT) should be at least 10.5 volts.
- FICM_VPWR (VOLT) should be at least 10.5 volts.
- FICM_MPWR (VOLT) should be at least 45 volts.
- SYNC (MODE) and FICMSYNC (MODE) should read YES.
- ICP (PRESS) needs to be at least 500 psi.
- ICP (VOLT) at KOEO .15-.35 volts, and during cranking over 1 volt.
- IPR (PER) should be less than 30%
- FUELPW (TIME) over 1 ms, fuel pressure at least 45 psi.
- EGRVP (VOLT) less than 1.2 volts KOEO and during cranking.
- RPM# (RPM) steady 160-190 RPM.
Refer to the specific step of the Hard Start/No Start diagnostics in the PCED for further testing.
