    In that situation, I drove the car fornthe couple days between the time the light came on and the appointment and it ended up going off the day after that happened. The dealer checked it out anyway and test drove it (used about 1/4 tank of E85 too), couldn't get the issue to pop back up, and in all honesty, it still hasn't nearly 4 years later. I have had it when running E85 in cold weather now that the factory battery is starting to give up the ghost.

    So if you get the "done" message, it means there's nothing wrong with the engine, even though the check engine light is on?

    It's how the throttles on our cars are now operated, instead of a cable running from the gas pedal to the throttle body, thete is a motor on the TB and a potentiometer on the gas pedal, kinda likethe way the yhrottle and steering is controlled on a fuel powered rc plane or car/truck.

    Yes, it is a 3.6. I went to the dealer and they did the pcm flash. I guess it is a known issue.

    Thank you

    @ppal1981, I got the codes from turning the key off on off on off on (fast...if you do it slow it does not work).

    What engine do you have?
    Are you getting any knocking on start up?
    If its the 3.6 It could be as simple as a pcm flash or it could be cam phasers if you are getting knocking at start up.
    Just take it to the dealer. Should be under warranty.

    Not off hand, check with your dealership and see if they can pull the codes. Think I spent all of around 30minutes a the dealer.

    Not even a year old and I just got that message this morning. The error codes that I'm getting are P054A and P054C. Any idea what those are?
