Data extracted from the flight recorders revealed that the aircraft experienced problems with airspeed indicators during its last four flights.
Boeing said the action was taken after the Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee indicated that the Lion Air jet experienced erroneous input from one of those sensors.
Boeing said it is continuing to work with the Indonesian investigation into the October 29 crash.
His agency was asking Boeing and U.S. authorities what action to take to prevent similar problems on this type of plane around the world, he added.
Boeing Co said on Wednesday it had issued a safety bulletin reminding pilots how to handle erroneous data from a key sensor in the wake of last week's crash in Indonesia.
"The investigation into Lion Air flight 610 is ongoing and Boeing continues to cooperate fully and provide technical assistance at the request and under the direction of government authorities investigating the accident".
Boeing is preparing to send a warning to all the operators that have taken delivery of its new 737 Max aircraft, according to an anonymous source cited by Bloomberg.

Indonesian officials said they have downloaded the data from a black box recorder for Lion Air flight 610 which crashed into Java sea last week while at least 105 body bags containing parts of passengers have been handed to the national police hospital in Jakarta for identification. In 2015, a wasp nest plugged the sensors on an Allegiant Air jet leaving St. Petersburg, Florida, forcing pilots to cut the flight short and land in Orlando.
Representatives of 737 Max operators, Singapore Airlines offshoot SilkAir, Garuda Indonesia and Canada's WestJet, said they had not yet received a bulletin from Boeing, Reuters reports. The plane was only a few months old and had logged a total of 19 flights and 800 flying hours.
Relatives demanded answers as to why the plane had been passed fit to fly and called for no let up in the search for loved ones. "We lost our child, but there was no empathy that Lion Air showed to us".
Police medical experts have received almost 140 body bags of human remains and have identified 14 victims.
The bulletin is being prepared based on preliminary findings from the crash of one of the planes off the coast of Indonesia, said the person, who asked not to be named discussing the inquiry.
"The plane was intact when it plunged to the sea, it did not explode in the air, and the aircraft engine was running when it touched the water at high RPM it's marked by the loss of all blades of the turbine", he said.
