UPDATE!! 2017 Titan Transmission TSB Info

Update! See post #234. There is an updated TSB# NTB17-016c released on 8/17/17.



Finally a TSB has been issued!

When you talk to your Nissan dealer, reference TSB# NTB17-016b.

This is for 2017 Armada, Titan, and Titan XD (with VK56VD). It is for "shift shock, lack of power, and/or RPM fluctuates."

This is for if a customer reports one or more of the following things occurring:
- Transmission shift shock when accelerating enough to create a 7th gear to 3rd gear downshift
- While driving at a steady speed, the engine RPM goes up and down (fluctuates) a small amount
- With light acceleration at lower speeds there is a lack of power; feels like the selected transmission gear is too high (may also be described as hesitation).

So every Nissan dealer should have access to this TSB now. Hopefully its not a fight to get them to apply it.
Just tell them to call Ivan if dealer refuses?????????

I looked up the TBS number on the Nissan Service Tech website (https://www.nissan-techinfo.com) and it is not showing up.

No sense of taking it to a dealer yet if the TSB isn't showing in any database at the dealers service dept.

I asked for another member to post the details of his service order, but no response.

So, when you guys are calling for appointments, are you specifically mentioning this TSB, and you want it applied?

Or are you explaining the issues, and letting them look it up on their own?

Just want to know the best way of getting this done painless without any hassles from the dealer.

thanks!!

What is the radio update? haven't heard about that one?
Read somewhere on this forum about a software update F166 & also a TSB for diagnostics kit for bad reception which for me in Baltimore I have terrible reception compared to any other vehicle I had.

So, does the TSB have to be attached specifically attached to specific VIN #'s for the dealer to apply it?

(in other words, if the TSB doesn't come up for my VIN #, will the dealer still do it- - - - I'm thinking no).

It does not specify any specific VIN # ranges for this TSB.

Had the TSB done Friday morning. Could immediately notice an improvement. It shifted and held RPMs like it should and the gas mileage was improved. Drove around 160 miles today on the interstate and it was a massive improvement over my last interstate trip. The power was there whenever I needed it and the mileage was much better. My last trip (same drive, same route) I only got 16.2 MPG. This time I got 18.5 MPG.

After the tech was done, the service manage test drove my truck and told me that it was a big improvement. He also had a '17 Titan and said he would be getting that done ASAP.
