Has anyone noticed 9th gear after getting S55 done. I have a habit of checking when i am on flat or downhill every so often, turns out i hit 9th 4 times in a row going 80mph downhill (4 different hills). This was within a week of getting S55 recall performed. I havent checked since.

I had my 2014 Trailhawk into the dealer yesterday for an oil change, tire rotation, the S55 recall, as well as an intermittent issue regarding the audio controls on the back left side of the steering wheel not working. They told me that in addition to that, there was a trouble code in the computer despite the Check Engine Light never coming on. They said that had something to do with the switches or sensors in the transmission bezel. Said it was covered under my Max care warranty, and parts were ordered.

Now, immediately after leaving the dealership, there was an audible chime, and a message on the EVIC saying that the 4WD system was un-useable and required service. I called the dealership while driving. They said to make sure the dial wasn't stuck in between settings. It wasn't. They had no other idea what to tell me. I drove home, shut it off, and restarted. The issue went away.

Today, had to take a 45 mile drive with the wife. No issues of any kind. Get to where we're going, parked car. A few hours later I go to move the car to a parking spot closer to the building. Suddenly the Check Engine Light comes on. (You would think the Message Center on these cars would tell you what the **** light is on for). No noticeable difference in performance. Shut the car off, go about our business. Come back about an hour later, start up, light still on. Drove all the way home, light stayed on. Still no noticeable issues with performance, sound, shifting, or anything else.

Does anyone have any clue what the issue could be causing the Check Engine Light to come on? Or why there were supposedly trouble codes stored in the system when the CEL had never been on before? Or why the stereo controls on the back of the steering wheel would stop working intermittently?
