This bulletin will be revised with a starting VIN for this logic change when it becomes available.
PACK FILE APPLICABILITY:
|Model||PAK File Name||New TCM Part Number||Old TCM Part Number||Decryption Keyword||New TCM CID Number|
|2019MY W/OUT Paddle Shift||30919AG021.pak||30919AG021||30919AG020||E8D1EAD5||S1F66260|

SERVICE PROCEDURE / INFORMATION:
Step 1: Reprogram the TCM using the SSM4 following the normal FlashWrite procedure.
SOA now highly recommends connecting the Midtronics GR8 Diagnostic Battery Charger to the vehicle and utilizing the Power Supply Mode feature anytime a vehicle control module is being reprogrammed. Once the GR8 is connected to the vehicle, as long as the battery is fully charged, it takes less than 3 minutes to boot-up the charger, select the Power Supply Mode, and have the battery voltage stabilized and ready for reprogramming.
VERY IMPORTANT: This information is applicable to the Midtronics GR8 Diagnostic Battery Charger ONLY. It does not apply to any other brand / type of “generic” battery charger whatsoever. ONLY the GR8 and its Power Supply Mode feature has been tested and approved by Subaru of America, Inc. (SOA).
- If the GR8 indicates the vehicle’s battery must be charged, charge the battery using the GR8 before proceeding to reprogram the vehicle while using the Power Supply Mode.
NOTE: Control module failures as a result of battery discharge during reprogramming are not a matter for warranty. Should any DTCs reset after the reprogramming update is performed, diagnose per the procedure outlined in the applicable Service Manual.
Step 2: Using the SSM4, clear the AT Learning Data using the following procedure:
- Start > Diagnosis > Vehicle Selection > Each System > Transmission > Work Support > Clear AT Learning Data.
- Click “YES” and when “Execute Clear AT Learning” is displayed, click “YES” again.
- Turn the ignition OFF, wait at LEAST 30 seconds then turn the ignition back ON. At this point, the AT Temp light will start blinking; 4 times in 2 seconds to signify the Clear AT Learning procedure has completed successfully. If the AT Temp light does not flash as described, repeat Step 2 again from the beginning.
Step 3: Using the SSM4, perform the AT Learning Control following the procedure outlined in the applicable Service Manual.
WARRANTY / CLAIM INFORMATION:
For vehicles within the Basic New Car Limited or Powertrain Warranty period or covered by a Subaru Added Security Powertrain, Classic or Gold plan, this repair may be submitted using the following claim information:
|Labor Description||Labor Operation #||Fail Code||Labor Time|
|TCM Reprogramming, Clear AT Learning and perform Learning Control||A860-732||MJZ-48||0.7|
IMPORTANT: The NEW Calibration Identification number (CID) for any newly-installed programming (as confirmed from the actual control module AFTER installation) MUST be noted on the repair order as this information is required for claim submission.
NOTE: The pack file listings provided in this bulletin are the latest available at the time of publishing. Updates are often released thereafter without revision to the original bulletin. For this reason, it is critical to always have the latest version of Select Monitor software installed on your system. You can confirm if a later version is available by entering the CID listed in this bulletin into FlashWrite. If a newer CID is shown as available in FlashWrite, reprogram using that file.
- SOA strongly discourages the printing and/or local storage of service information as previously released information and electronic publications may be updated at any time.
- Always check for any open recalls or campaigns anytime a vehicle is in for servicing.
- Always refer to STIS for the latest service information before performing any repairs.
