Man...me too. Minivans SUCK.

Thanks for the update. They broke mine around the same time so maybe mine will get fixed soon. Then they can drive it to diagnose the P20EE error code. They are replacing the DEF pump as the first part to swap...

Re: Post brake booster recall issue

I called my dealership and asked if parts came in for my p14 recall. They said yes and to schedule for Wednesday. I told them I would drop it off cause I don't drive it during summer and I had to discuss trans. My dealership doesn't hassle me about TSB's and if they is out there they do it.

Re: Post brake booster recall issue

After getting my Grand Cherokee back from recall service, I parked it in the garage at noticed a stiff brake pedal when I went to start the car the following day. After a bit of testing, I found that all vacuum was lost in 25 minutes. I took it back to the dealer that performed the recall service, but they said it was just fine. I then called Chrysler, and they advised I take it to a different dealer for testing. Apparently having a brake booster lose vacuum over 25 minutes is within specifications, despite my booster originally holding vacuum for several days. Guess I'm stuck with it for now as part of my Jeep's leaving warranty coverage celebration that also includes the water pump profusely leaking coolant after both brake booster checks.

Re: Post brake booster recall issue

I had the recall done on mine and even prior to the recall, sometimes my GC would lose vacuum overnight and sometimes it would hold vacuum for 5 days. Vehicle is always parked in garage overnight and it never gets below 60 degrees in there. There is no rhyme or reason for it. Might be a Chrysler thing, though I think I've experienced the same thing on prior vehicles.

Re: Post brake booster recall issue

Prior to the shield install (booster wasn't replaced) my brakes would hold vacuum for several days of non-use. I've noticed since that it doesn't seem to hold it as long. Hasn't and won't be a cause of concern as long as they pump up and operate properly after starting the vehicle as everything feels fine when driving.

Is there a drop in MPG when they screw up the brake booster recall? I have the squeal, and I'm getting about 15 mpg combined.

Re: Post brake booster recall issue

Here is something to check for if you have had the booster recall done. I had the booster recall done about 5000 miles ago. So today I was installing a new air filter usually a quick 2 minute job. apparently when they did the booster recall they had to take the air box assembly out to move some of the brake lines out of the way. when they put it back it was thrown back in with the usual grace that I am use to seeing with jeep dealers. air box had not been fitted in properly and was all gouged up. which I correct but what bothered me was that the idiots didn't install the accordion air duct attaching to the air box properly leaving a gap at the bottom and didn't even bother tying to tighten it, it was just laying in there. so some of the air it has been sucking into the engine has been bypassing the air filter. This was not evident just looking down at it and not until I went to put in the new air filter did I see it. Probably about 5000 miles of pulling in some unfiltered air and who knows what else.

So I bring this up to say check and make sure this didn't happen to you. Look at the bottom of the air duct accordion and make sure the bottom(not just the top) of it is pushed into the airbox as far as it should be. It is a very snug fit and I had to use pliers to actually properly pull it over the airbox opening, it took longer than you would think. I can just see an uncaring tech trying to fit it over the airbox opening and saying f it and leaving it there like mine was. like I said above not that evident just glancing at it from the top. The red arrow I have below is where it should be after corrected.
Yet another reason that I cringe every time I have to take a car into a dealer for them to not give a crap about what they are doing.

I could not agree more. I hate taking my car in for anything and always have to check behind them that everything is put correctly back in place. If I had a little more time and expertise, I would do the jobs myself but things are too specialised these days. I opted not to have the sun visor recall done because I know they will damage the headliner and break the little clips so the trim won't go back on right. I just had my brake booster recall completed yesterday but it was too dark and rainy to check their work last night. I will be thoroughly checking all wiring, all hoses and the engine cover is all put back on correctly when I get home this evening.

yeah I agree I do most everything myself that I can. but with all this warranty and recall work just have to cross fingers, bit lip and hope the sloppy work and damage they do is minimal. Sun visor recall they did good on the bake booster I thought they did good on until later when I started finding all the broken things and air intake off guess will see how the next one goes

Re: Post brake booster recall issue

Count me in as another whose dealership didn't read the procedures for drawing the vacuum down.

Today I dropped the Jeep off for TIPM, visor, and booster recall. Dealership called me and said my MC was toast. Funny, brakes worked fine when I dropped it off. They replied yeah, but it has a small leak.

Pisses me off that they think I'm stupid.
