It's because of the literature that's states in not so many but obvious wording if the customer doesn't know then charge him for the fault codes that arose from the failure of the ones that caused but if he is aware of it then reprogram. and that statement "only a dealer" that really doesn't inspire confidence in a dealership to be fair in their diagnosis.Only a dealer should reprogram modules. The PCM may be covered under an 8 yr/80K mile extended federal emissions warranty. The TCM may also be covered as the 2015 9-speed has had an extended FCA warranty as well.
The ones that haven't reported back may have just given up and traded it in for someone else to buy and deal with.Welcome to the forums. Reading through this thread is frustrating, because only one or two members have reported back on what fixed the problem.
The title of this thread doesn't make sense to me, "Engine warming, Please wait to Start". How can an engine warm up if it isn't started and running?
Thanks for the welcome and had I known of that bulletin I would have had no problem taking my car to dealership but I was already past warranty at time and really wanted to just get it fixed and move on but apparently it was the pcm as you stated and my ignorance of how Chrysler manages its vehicles computer systems at that time 1 year ago caused me to feel I had messed up the computer somehow. I am glad I refunded my money purchasing a new ecm that was ordered wrong the first time that the parts guy ordered incorrectly and then said he doesn'tknow what happened but the one for my car would be 200 more so that kind of incompetenceby the supposed parts manager didn't compel me to bring my car back but still doesn't fix my car. Now the question is will I still be able to get my car to dealership and will it cost me thousands just to get my pcm and tcm updated. You keep referring to an 8 year extended warranty but where is the link to said documents stating the terms cause may be covered doesn't make me want to take the chance not knowing what I will run intoWelcome to the forums. P0128 aka 'the thermostat code' may indicate the need for a new thermostat, but not always.
It is a common code in winter, but if your heater/defroster is working fairly well, then it may just need the PCM flash.
They made changes to the cooling system control software that includes an erroneous P0116 - engine coolant temperature sensor performance, P0480 - radiator cooling fan 1 circuit open, P050D - cold start, rough idle and P1D73 - AGS (automatic grille shutter) perfotmance.
I'm referring to a 2015 2.4L at the TSB below, but there are PCM software fixes for other years, models and engines.
Having same issuespost a picture of the dash showing the message, im curious.
sounds very electrical IMO.
Maybe consider checking the app called "AlfaOBD" on the play store. it can read dealer level codes that normal OBD scanners can't.
you said she has a new battery.. what happens when you leave the car parked overnight and locked so the computers go into a 'deep sleep' mode. will it produce better results?
best of luck
I don't see how substituting a different fuse would have any effect.So I checked fuse f80 (radio fuse) and found that it was draining power from my battery causing weird messages like this to pop up I pulled the fuse (later replaced it) and haven’t had the problem since. Do an easy drain test on the battery and see if you’re finding a drain on that fuse. I’ve so far had 10 different people have this issue and found the same solution I did. Just check it out, might save you $$$$.
Thank you for your response. My car hasn’t started back up at all. I did read that others were able to after sitting for a while. I’ll schedule an appointment with the local dealer and go from there. Whatever I find out, I’ll be sure to come back and post.Welcome to the forum. I have been in touch with FCA about this & haven't had a response back (they may not know the reason either)? Have you experienced a blinking odometer display at all?
If you read the previous posts about this here & on Google, you will not see a definitive solution. It affects the electrically similar Dart & Cherokee?
If you use the 'Search Community' at the top of the page, you will see other threads about this.
I'm sorry that you bought a starter & battery that you probably didn't need.
If anyone can help, it would be a Chrysler dealer. There may not have been some inside-knowledge that I haven't been privy to?
If you do get a fix or an answer for this, please share it here.
The best I can figure out, is that it is something to do with the BCM PROXI configuration. Almost like the car forgets its core identity. The BCM (body control module) is the 'gate-keeper' for the other modules.
I don't know how it gets its identity back (or even if this is the problem). This is an 'intermittent' problem. Does the car always start for you later? Like nothing ever happened? I don't know how often this happens, but any problem that can strand you is a big problem.
If you do decide to have a dealer look at it, agree to the 'diagnostic' (usually the shop minimum) charge. They should not go beyond that without your authorization. There is a member here @ChryslerCares, that can help guide the car through the service department visit.

Any update on this? having the exact same “engine warming wait to start” message in my 2015 Dodge Dart 2.4L. Brand new battery and starter tested good. Looking to replace the BCM next to see if that does anything.Thank you for your response. My car hasn’t started back up at all. I did read that others were able to after sitting for a while. I’ll schedule an appointment with the local dealer and go from there. Whatever I find out, I’ll be sure to come back and post.
Hello!Was there ever an actual fix to this? This is now happening to me. Took the car to Pepboys and it took them almost two weeks to come up with the “starter and new battery” the “fix” worked for 2 days and now we’re back to “engine warming wait to start”
