Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

Sorry guys. Some clarity on the refund. The dealer is sending me a refund for the tow. Not sure if that is their standard policy or not. I haven't contacted jeep directly to discuss this issue so I'm not sure if they endorse the refund or not.
I have no idea what update they are applying unfortunately. They said they have a few to use depending on the model. I'll try it in the sand in a few weeks and see how it goes.

Sounds like a quadra-lift issue.

Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

Just had my 10,000 k coincidentally also 6 month service and the service manager told me there were 3 computer updates applied. 1. The random not start issue 2. Stereo draining battery and 3. Some other battery draining issue. I have been on beach and not had problem so not too concerned but I would have thought I would have had the QLift tsb applied. BTW enforcer I have had no noticeable change in performance since I picked it up. I only get to drive it on weekends do will test a bit more and respond to the correct thread.

Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

It is possible that you already had it applied, as you would notice it straight away.
What did they hit you for the 10k km service ?

Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

Mine had no power or drivability change after the 10k service either. Was always quite zippy straight out of the box.

Maybe it was a 2011 thing and the 2012s already came with recalibrated software.

Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

Today I specifically asked my dealer if the TSB applied to my 2012 WK2 and to quote his written reply :

"I have checked Chrysler and there is no recalls or upgrades currently listed for your vehicle"

My GC is a late 2011 build, delivered 23/1/12

So I have it in writing from the dealer that the TSB does not apply to my vehicle - but I must say that based on past performance of Jeep I'm still not sure....

I have also emailed Chrysler in Melbourne, so Ill see what reply I get from them.

Re: Grand Cherokee + sand = FAIL

I got the same reply and when I made him actually look up the TSB low and behold it applied to my vehicle!

Still definitely no fix for this in australia.
The off road system and the abs system apparently both need remapping in order to fix the issue. They have one for other countries as the abs has different mapping, or so the dealer tells me. Either way they are still some months off a remedy.

I think they should be forced into a recall, or issue warnings to all owners and potential owners to "hold back" on the off road work as the 4wd system may fail and jeep assist will not be there to tow the out, as they do not provide this service in off road areas......what a croc...... I bought a 4wd for gods sake, what am I supposed to do with it if I can't drive it off road?
