Latest PCM software update

Did Chrysler screw up the oil life calculation in PCM software with his latest update? I got it when they did oil change and for first 200 miles my engine oil life dropped 6%. It used to change 1% for every 100 miles with previous software version. Over the weekend I drove over 200 miles, most of it highway, and oil life counter never changed. I did try turning the car off and on few times to see if it will make any difference, but nothing, it says that the remaining oil life is 94% at 416 miles, same as off 200 miles.

Re: Latest PCM software update

Does any one experience similar problem?
I reset the oil life counter yesterday and after 60 miles is down to 98%.
Already contacted Chrysler and have case opened, but it will not be before next week when they can look at it.

285 miles should get you down to 98% and 95% left should be good for 9500 miles, at least that what was w/old PCM software.

Re: Latest PCM software update

The reason I ask why is because oil isn't what it used to be. It doesn't break down nearly as fast.
