We have no emissions testing in GA, so based on what little I know of this, I will not allow them to touch it in the fear it will make mileage worse, or cause faults like some have reported.

Rec'd my recall notice on my 2005 today. I am not planning to let anyone touch it at this time. I have read about some members having problems after the recall and I do not want to be that boat.

Received my recall notice today in California from Fiat Chrysler. 2006 Dodge T1N.

My van is running fine and I have no plans to take it in for the recall!

Received the recall notice today. It appears that the computer does not monitor the Mass Air Flow Sensor for faults and thus does not flag it or set a code if the sensor is faulty. I suppose the computer does use the MAF information to control the engine, but simply doesn't tell you if the info is non-existent or inaccurate/out of range.

After reading the thread on the issues the Freightliner people have had with this, it will be a long time before I allow to have the computer reflashed. Cannot risk having my motorhome stuck at the dealer for weeks or months while they try to sort the problem out. There are no Dodge dealers in my area that were in business when T1N Sprinters were being sold, as the ones around here were shut down during the economic collapse and new ones have sprung up. I am sure they cannot properly service a Sprinter and most likely don't even have a Star module to access the computer with.

With no emissions tests here, I have no incentive to do anything stupid. When I hear of a Dodge dealer in the Southeast that has done the upgrades to several Sprinters without any issues, then I will take it to them and get it done.

Since this is a complete reflash of the computer, does this also fix the non working BRAKE warning light recall in one shot?

I am with many of the GA guys, my van runs great and I am usually on top of any pending issues. The few Dodge/Chrysler dealers in my are don't have enough Sprinter experience and taking a day off work to have someone play with it is not gonna work for me.

Default Emissions Recall

Just got this notice on the mail today.

I remember reading horror shows on here before after they updated the ECU.

Anyone have it done yet with good results?

If I were to receive such a recall letter I wouldn't announce it on a public forum for a couple reasons.

I wouldn't need to broadcast my intentions publicly.

I wouldn't want to awaken already too busy emissions bureaucrats about the possibility of some vehicles missing out on the recall.

If you are warm and happy in a pile of sh!t. Keep your mouth shut.

Once upon a time, there was a little sparrow who decided to be different from all the other birds by not flying south for winter. Needless to say, it soon got so cold that the little bird reluctantly started south anyway. As he flew along, the little bird grew cold and ice formed on his wings which caused him to fall to the ground in a barnyard. A cow wandered by and **** on him. This may seem terrible, but it warmed the poor bird and thawed the ice so that the bird began to chirp and sing. A cat wandered by, heard the noise, and dug through the manure until he found the bird and ate him.

The moral of this story is:
* Being different makes you cold, lonely, and gets you **** on.
* Everyone who ****s on you is not necessarily your enemy.
* Everyone who digs you out of the **** is not necessarily your friend.
* If you are warm and happy in a pile of ****, keep your mouth shut.

I read this thread and found a lot of trepidation on complying with this recall. What I was curious about was whether people had any specific bad experiences and what any downside to this could be?

The wording on the recall notice makes me believe the dealer may inspect or replace emissions equipment including my EGR and intake system. My egr is sticking intermittently. So far from what I can gather, I see potentially a new egr in my future? FO FREE?! I mean, I guess I could clean it.
