2016 MX. Just had VCM replaced per recall. Now I get recurrent "vehicle connection error" message when trying to communicate with car from my cell phone. When this happens, car is in garage right next to wireless satellite with full bars. I noticed they used reman parts for "MSX VCM TEGRA REV-BC (64 GB)". Is there a fix that anyone can suggest, and does the fact that they used remanufactured parts play into this at all? Sorry if this has been addressed.
