you have reached a desired location...
Hello, my name is Weck, And my jeep too suffers from a module/communication failure
last weekend, the EVIC display starting going berserk flashing a "Do not shift .. " warning but it would not stay on long enough to read it.
The jeep was driving fine otherwise.
Eventually, the entire message stayed up, it was "service Transmission. Continue in Drive. Do not shift or turn off until you reach a desired location as you may not be able to shift again" or something like that.
So, got home, tried reverse, park, off, on, message went away, all was fine for another 3 days of driving.
Already was planning an oil change and a TSB update, so added this to list. Dealer found several codes, but nothing related at first.
Then, it started throwing codes when they were updating per the latest TSBs, which they claim them traced back to the air suspension module (apparently many of the other modules run through this one). I inquired and they assure me the ground strap issue and the CanBus connector in the passenger footwell also checked.
On backorder till 7/15 and Chrysler has advised they do not let me drive the vehicle! There are 83 other orders for this part ahead of me on the wait list per the dealer, so there is something going on.
Now, the rant. So, I'm stuck with a POS Dodge Journey for at least 2 weeks (probably longer), holiday weekend, can't tow anything, finishing up a kitchen remodel, and have our second child due any day now....
They claim they can't pull the part from a new jeep as they are hard coded with the VIN... he's going to try to see if they can get one from the line. I'm not holding my breath on that one...
I know things happen but c'mon, Jeep, at least make the damn parts available!
Ironically, today is the 1 year anniversary of when I took delivery.
