Is it even available yet? I know they've said it was approved, but FCA still lists the estimated remedy as 1/30/2020Has anyone done the AEM with the new Dec. '19 version? (RECALL VA7?) And could they post the 'part number' from the dealer invoice? I have been waiting to go in for the AEM and my $ and want to make sure my dealer uses the updated version....
Just got notification today about the second AEM. It is in essence an official statement that they agree at least some have had markedly different performance with the first AEM and there is a second AEM. It does not have the official NTHSA number on it with specific instructions. I am not in a big hurry anyway in my case as I am not going to have it done until the new EGR cooler is out. Meanwhile driving a rental provided by FCA (dealer no help).Is FCA keeping the dealerships in the dark? They haven’t heard anything from. FCA. I repeat myself. This is a cluster.

Came across this while searching for info on the EGR recall.
Note the top of the page where it mention “upcoming and interim status campaigns”. It mentions VB1, which is the EGR recall, but it also mentions VA7, which is a customer satisfaction “re-remedy” for 2014-2016 3.0L DS/WK chassis, which is the Ram 1500 and the Grand Cherokee Diesels. Sounds like a V08 update to me...
I just got a letter today taking about the update which was approved Dec 2019. Did not say when it would be available for installation.
This is how I interpreted it... I’m scheduled to have my first AEM done next week...Just got notification today about the second AEM.

You're considered not an original owner, so you only get a portion of the $3k until the original owner has been given sufficient time to make a claim. Once that time expires, you receive a second check for the remainder of the $3k.Serious question... I’m a new owner (Oct) of a ‘16 ED and have been approved for $3,048 but not until the AEM is done next Saturday. What is this about a 2nd check?
What did the service ticket say? Did it have an update designation?I received the same letter yesterday and called my dealership. They had no idea that there was an update. When I arrived to have them check, they said everything was up to date without hooking anything up. I asked if the updates were link via the internet, which they are, so I asked them to hook up my 2016 1500, and low and behold there was an update. After the update was complete, the mileage seemed to return to something normal and this morning, 25F, i went out for a test drive. THE LAG WAS GONE. Waiting to do a full tank mileage check. I'm happy some normalcy has returned.
Fully agree. FCA had the stop sale on while they reprogrammed all the 17s that were still in inventory and we get nothing.I find it particularly funny it's not also for 2017 / 2018 / 2019 models. Even though they have the crappy throttle response like 2014 / 2015 / 2016 models, they aren't getting the update since they were sold with crappy response from the factory (after being re-tuned for the whole emissions (pre AEM) debacle).
Only people with 2014 - 2016 trucks are eligible for VA7 because their trucks performed better prior to AEM.
