It only happens every once in a while. Just started to notice in the past week or so.

Haha you are very welcome
See what happens when you try to help!!! ;) Teasing of course since we are all friends here.

BTW - Curious what the dealership has to say?!? Hopefully a re-flash/reset of the ECU will fix this bug.

This is FCA's newest method to prevent vehicle theft. The thief will eventually tire of trying to push on the clutch and the engine not starting, that he gives up.

Haven't taken it to the dealership over this. Not causing any issues and it doesn't happen all of the time. Just keep an eye out for it and post if you see it too.

I wonder if the dealership flashed it with the wrong firmware during an update; installed the manual trans software instead of auto.

If we start to see many others seeing this then we'll have a clue. Indeed, the issue can be fixed with tweaking of the firmware by the firmware developer.

I saw a review video and it showed the message that the brake needed to be depressed to start. I am curious if you normally see the correct message and once in a while you see the message with the clutch. That would be odd if it flip flopped back and forth between the messages.

I doubt it, like I said, the Clutch message doesn't show up all the time, the correct Brake message does. I see this Clutch message maybe 30% of the time.

Yeah, I see them both, Clutch message less than Brake message though.

Been working fine since 2013 when they started using in in many Chrysler platforms.

This isn’t a new transmission.
