Re: STUCK IN SAND with 4WD malfunction

Hey all,

Just an update, after getting the TSB done no issues! Went on the beach, just switched to Sand Mode and that's it. Did not go into 4-lo and did not get the serv 4 wheel drive error or air suspension error. Jeep handled great! I have the 18" tires aired down to 20 psi.

Re: STUCK IN SAND with 4WD malfunction

Sorry if this has been asked already and I know this has been a big issue for the 11-13 model years, but does this issue exist with the 14 model year? Taking the family to the beach for 4th of July and want to know if I should avoid driving on the sand due to this issue.

I'm almost positive it is not. Your Jeep has it's own select terrain mode for sand where as ours is a combined setting for sand/mud.

Re: STUCK IN SAND with 4WD malfunction

When I called Chrysler about the issue to get information, the person I spoke to said it was an issue for '11, '12 and some '13's, however '14's have a newer system. I would hope by the 4th year Jeep finally got the select terrain right.
