I just had the reprogram done yesterday, but now it clunks between 1st and 2nd and it didn't do that before.
The TSB is kind of a 2 part repair. There's the flash reprogram and then the trans quicklearn. The whole repair takes about 15 minutes, if the tech is on the ball. Appointment scheduling may be the reason she was there for an hour and a half.I got the same result that Packerbacker got. It only does it with little throttle. If you are on the gas somewhat it shifts ok. The wife was at the dealer 1 1/2 hrs for the reprogram.
To find the date of manufacture of your Nitro look at the label on the drivers-door shut face. Here's a link with information regarding the label.So where do you look for the date, to tell you if you should get the to
the dealership to get the update.:i_rolleyes:
TSB's are very build specific. For the TSB that applies to the transmission shifting the vehicle has to be built before Nov. 17. In your case I'm have no idea of your vehicles build date. Also if the technician who is performing the reprogram isn't aware of proper procedures to verify the most current software using the Starscan (Chrysler computer scanner) its possible to miss updates and report none are available.Thanks for heads up on tsb. I had my nitro into dealer yesterday to replace the electric door locks on the drivers side. I told them of the problem with shifting and surges, and also with vehicle stalling while being driven. They said the only tsb that applies to my vin number had already been performed prior to my purchase. They said there was nothing further they could do because they can't perform repairs that aren't authorized. What a load of crap. Thanks anyway.
