Good luck to everyone else...
Glad to hear it is going well,

Comment on the wireless, that would be specific to that shop having an issue with their wireless setup. Yes, they can plug in manually as a backup but all service departments should be aware of this.... I say that and of course there were dealers who had access to the update who "claimed" they didn't

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

I got the update from dealer today. It was very easy. My dealer doesn't ask any question after showing the TSB and the service manager also said that if there is any other updates, it will be done when hook up to the computer. However, it turns out only one update.

Eco mode feels better, but I will need to drive it longer to find out the different.

So as far as TSBs go - what's the best way to keep aware of them? Is there an email alert you can sign up for, or do you just have to keep checking a website every so often, and in that case, what's the best site to search for them? Thanks all!

I would bookmark w2kjeeps.com and check there periodically. Milous maintains it and he is the man!

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

Hey Willx,
Can you make a prediction of when/ if this TSB would already be incorporated into a new vehicle ( mine is getting painted right now)?

I can't imagine that they would leave the factory without flashing the latest firmware available at that specific time. If not, you can always tell the dealer you want the update before taking delivery, but I doubt it will come to that.

If you read the TSB, it applies to vehicles built on or before July, 14

All Production vehicles have the update....

Generally updates (software and hardware) are in production a week or two before they are released to dealers.

Is that born date? Born date plus 5 manufacturing days? or is it kick the tires, it's been shipped date?

That is the VOTS build date. That is the only "build" date that the dealer can reference in the system. For that matter the MOTS date!

These vehicles are built in about a day or day and a half. When mine first showed up in vots
in the am, it was out the door in the pm. Shipping date has nothing to do with build date ... except one follows the other. Some hang around for additional inspection.

Since yours has an August build date, you shouldn't be concerned at all.

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

Just had my transmissionís firmware updated a couple of days ago, what a difference! JGC drives and shift so much smoother. No much transfer case thumps!
