|Code U3017 RAM Description

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) determines that the ignition off time received from the Body Control Module (BCM) is either too high or too low compared to a calculated value. The PCM also factors in the coolant temperature drop observed over a key cycle during this monitor.
The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set when the BCM engine ignition off time is too high or low for the coolant temperature drop observed over the key cycle. The PCM will light the MIL lamp after this monitor runs and fails twice. The PCM will turn off the MIL lamp once the diagnostic runs and passes in four consecutive drive cycles. Note: This DTC can also set when using the scan tool to change the vehicle from Shipping Mode to Customer Mode (during New Vehicle Prep).
