Question XCM Reprogram

I noticed a sticker under my hood that says

XCM Reprogram

New part# 56028242af

Authorized by RC975
Dealer Code 82702
Performed 04-03-01

Does any one kow if I should be worried? Is this the so called Death flash? I have the 4.7 I purchased used. so I am not sure what that's about.

Troy:

Oh NO...... What color is it? Is it red? Is there a bar code there too? Where under the hood is it? Is it on or by the PCM? Was it there when ya bought your D? It might just be from what I've heard. Troy, can ya take and post a picture of it?

Hope this helps! Also does everyone else have an electric fan mounted in front of the fan from the engine. I do can't figure out if it came with the tow package or what?

tROY:

I think that's the sign of the "DEATH FLASH" Troy, but I'm not sure. I'll show the picture around to the people that will know better than me. Then I'll let ya know. As far as the second picture, yep, ya hit the nail right on the head.

A software update to the PCM is the only thing you can assume for sure. Not all of them are this "death flash" that people are obsessed with, some are just harmless updates for things you might not even know or care about. DC has issued something like 500 updates across their product line since the intro of OBD-II in '96.

The fan is supposed to be there. All Durangos and Dakotas beginning with the 2000 model year have both a mechanical and an e-fan. I've actually removed my mechanical and I'm attempting to run with the e-fan only. Too early to tell if it's going to cut the mustard. Should know after we dyno tune it.

When I had my 2K Durango, it was recalled for a flash to turn on the MIL if the cat converter was removed. I think it was around the time period shown on your sticker. FWIW, I believe the "death flash" was only done on the 5.9 (and maybe 5.2) engines. Never heard of one on a 4.7.
