Sounds like 8 service departments that either took shortcuts installing the new visor parts, didn't know what the hell they were doing (even with repair pics available) or both.

eh, who knows but the odds that a valid fix was improperly done by 8+ dealers? That would imply the fix was not a 100% or that the procedure wasn't field ready....here's the official status:

from http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/acms/cs...15003-8663.PDF

Summary:
On July 1st, 2014 Chrysler (FCA US LLC) issued safety recall 14V-391 to remedy a wiring-related fire hazard on the headliner of approximately 661,888 model year (MY) 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango vehicles manufactured between January 5, 2010 and December 11, 2013. The recall was in response to the Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) investigation EA14-001 during which data provided by Chrysler indicates that the fire is caused by an electrical short in the vanity lamp wiring for either one of the sun visors mounted on the vehicle. The sun visors are mounted to the roof of the vehicle through the headliner with three metal screws. EA14-001 determined that was possible for the sun visor wiring to be pierced by one of these screws, or otherwise electrically shorted either during initial vehicle assembly or later headliner area repairs which may cause an electrical short potentially resulting in fire. Most of the fires occurred while the vehicle was being driven. The remedy Chrysler developed consists of a plastic guide way installed on each sun visor that routes the wiring away from the attachment screws preventing the wiring from being shorted. In order to install the guide way, the headliner most be lowered and the existing sun visor and headliner wiring is rerouted through the guide way and reinstalled.

>>>ODI has received 8 reports of fires occurring after the remedy was installed, with some occupants complaining of smoke sometimes followed by flames erupting in the headliner. No crashes or injuries were alleged in the post remedy fires. A recall query has been opened to investigate the effectiveness of the remedy for recall 14V-391. The ODI reports cited above can be reviewed at http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchSafetyIssues under the following identification numbers: 10703058, 10692710, 10691520, 10684130, 10653417, 10711836, 10705802, and 10640524.

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/...od_ids=1880829 and click on the "1 Associated Innvestigation" link at bottom of original Visor Recall.

The link above will be down for maintenance on Saturday May 9, 7:00 PM until Sunday May 10, 10:00 AM EDT. We apologize for this brief inconvenience.

Based on the number of complaints about the quality of dealer service one finds out here, my money would be on inept repair work.

When I had the brake booster shield recall done, thanks to photos from a forum member here, I knew to check to make sure the shield was installed properly with it touching the firewall. Of course it wasn't done properly, so the tech redid it while I watched.

About a month later, one of my neighbors who also had the same recall performed by the same dealer. I checked his and the shield was also installed incorrectly. They just don't care.

The techs always find short cuts when doing recalls. Otherwise they will always lose money on each job.

Re: Sun Visor Recall

For those who are thinking of getting an attorney to get Jeep to buy back your vehicle, it might be easier and cheaper to just have this recall done and let it burn.

Re: Sun Visor Recall

my neighbor's jeep just caught fire after the recall "fix". So that's at least 9. I told him to report it to the nhtshizzle. Another worthless (dangerous) recall I'll never do.

As he told me the story, I just kept thinking about this thread I had already read. Thanks forum members, for keeping us informed.

Re: Sun Visor Recall
