i have an 2007 dodge caliber. i replaced the transmission and i need to know if you can reset the trans memory with a generic scan tool. it has a correlation code that i cant get rid of. please help
2007 Dodge caliber
clearing the codes by what mitchell online says. turn key on, clear codes,turn off,turn on and clear codes again,turn off turn on and then should be clear
Good afternoon, im not sure that a generic scanner will be able to perform this. Here is the actual procedure when replacing the trans.......
NOTE: Refer to the following table when the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and/or transaxle has been replaced to determine if the TCM memory must be erased.
You most likely have the same info. Resetting the learned memory is not the same thing as clearing the codes. You may need the factory scanner to perform this unfortunately. It also helps if you were able to give the actual code number.
THE CODE # XXXXX XXXXX P167A
There is a related technical service bulletin for this code. It stated to flash (reprogram) both the pcm and tcm with the latest software updates. The bulletin # XXXXX XXXXX
The test for the code also states to perform the relearn. After just having replaced the trans, I would perform the relearn with the correct scanner and not worry about the service bulletin at this time.
During the initial ignition on, the Transmission Control Module (TCM) receives the calibrated data from the EEPROM assembly inside the transmission and stores this information in the EEPROM of the TCM. At every ignition on, the TCM compares the stored data in the EEPROM to the transmitted data from the EEPROM in the transmission. If the calibration data does not match the DTC will set and the MIL will illuminate after one failure.
One time at initial ignition on with a system voltage between 9.0 and 16.0 volts.
If the TCM stored calibration does not match the EEPROM assembly in the transmission. This DTC requires only one problem identification to set the MIL.

THANKS FOR YOUR INFO. I GUESS I AM GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE DEALER. MY SCAN TOOL CANT DO THAT ACTION
Thanks for using us. I hope you have a great weekend!
