I know there are a lot of other Owners who have posted here about the same problem.
I was told today that they have finally come up with a software fix that is now being tested. They told me that the problem they have is that the Freightliner dealers do not have the ability to change out the light bar software. So FCC is currently trying to come up with a way to change out the software on the large number of vehicles affected. They still have no procedure for Owners to follow to have the fix installed and no date of when they will have one. They realize that this the time this has taken is ridiculous.
Keith, This is great information.
Could you copy it over to http://www.irv2.com/forums/f103/dash-lights-flickering-264342-4.html
This is the thread that most of us are watching concerning this issue.
I am scheduled for service in Gaffney on May 1st and am hoping they are prepared to handle this by that time.
