AFM turned off by my dealer????

I'm taking the car in for service tomorrow and was thinking of asking my dealer if he would turn off the AFM. It drives me crazy at cruising speeds.

Has anyone had their dealer do it? And, did they say that it would void your warranty?

Even if your dealer will do this, you need to be careful. If a service manager at another dealership (or even the same one) notices the ECM reprogramming, he *could* decide to annotate this in the GM database, thereby voiding your entire powertrain warranty.

Remember, that the dealer has no control over what a warranty covers...

The button in front of the shifter does that.

Not going to happen. Any tuner will do it. I had a shop tell me they would turn off AFM for $20.

I thought this was what I would hear. I'll just forget about it and live with the annoyance. I certainly don't want to do anything to jeopardize my warranty.

Thanks everyone!

As everyone else has already said....probably won't happen.
We don't disable or turn anything off at our place,unless GM releases a TSB telling us we are allowed to at the request of the customer.
