same here -- so I thought. After verifying "L" update via brake test, I found the sticker on the hood, but it was practically hidden:
I found it behind the first recess from the hood's leading edge, so I had to lean into the engine compartment and look up to see it. It's mostly clear (=easy to miss), with black printing, but does have the logo described above.
yea i'll look for that sticker. But i tried that 20 tap brake thing, and no guage tack moves....but my car does start up a lot quicker than before almost like a piston engine. Before i had to wait like 2 seconds now it's almost an instant start.
You need to turn the ignition key to ON position without cranking, immediately pump the brake pedal as fast as you can, at least 20 times. The oil gage should move to mid-span & back. I got the "L" flash last week & it works. I just kept pumping the brake, lost count, but that's alright, it'll do it when you get to 20.
It's the indication that you cleared the eccentric shaft plate profile memory from the PCM when you do this, so it's gotta work if you got the "L" or the "M" flash.
what racer x-8 said and if you can't find the sticker under the hood try the drivers side door edge. thats where they put my sticker. the background of the sticker is clear so i didn't notice it at first.
