Re: WK2 DownUnder

I've just been told by the dealer that my Body Control Module needs replacing.
I had been having problems with the fuel gauge reading empty and the fuel warning light coming on after about 130km from filling up.
Has anyone had or heard of other people having BCM failures.

There have been a few BCM fails, but it is not a common issue.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just noticed a new TSB for MY12-MY14 Grand Cherokees, relating to wheel alignments for RHD vehicles. TSB02-004-14a


SYMPTOM/CONDITION: Customer may describe a lead or drift to the left condition at steady state speeds of 56 KPH (35 MPH) and above.
DIAGNOSIS: If the customer describes the symptom, perform the Repair Procedure.
REPAIR PROCEDURE: 1. Test drive the vehicle on a left crowned road at 80 KPH (50 MPH) steady state speed. Position the vehicle in the center of the driving lane between the two lines designating the lane width. While holding the steering wheel with a controlled grip, allow the vehicle to find its own direction (simulating hands free). Record the amount of time it takes for the front **left** tire to touch the left hand line prior to making a correction to keep the vehicle in the lane. Repeat the procedure driving in the opposite direction (Example: If initial test is performed driving North, repeat the procedure driving South on the same road). Calculate the average time between the two tests. Is the average time for the vehicle to lead/drift to the edge of the lane greater or less than 7 seconds? a. Average time is less than 7 seconds>>> Proceed with the alignment camber specification change Step #2. b. Average time is greater than 7 seconds>>> This bulletin does not apply.
NUMBER: 02-004-14 REV. A
GROUP: Front Suspension
DATE: May 22, 2014
2. Align the vehicle using the front wheel camber settings listed in the following specification table. Refer to the detailed service procedures available in DealerCONNECT> TechCONNECT under: Service Info> 02 - Front Suspension> Wheel Alignment.

Good find. At least somebody is on the ball. Different cambers left and right? This will confuse the little buggers at the dealership With spec in hand I might go elsewhere for a wheel alignment.

[QUOTE=allypally;1027503]Just noticed a new TSB for MY12-MY14 Grand Cherokees, relating to wheel alignments for RHD vehicles. TSB02-004-14a

Thanks for this. I have had the problem since day one and the dealer said there is no fix. I had the alignment done by a truck suspension specialist on the Coast and the vehicle is now 85% correct but still pulls to the left and to my reckoning is well within the 7 seconds.
Is it possible to get the camber figures for this TSB so that I can get this done privately? I have no confidence that the dealer will fix and will probably undo all the good work done previously.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

AUSTRALIA
will remain a linchpin in
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ ambitious
push to double its global sales over the
next five years, the company says.
In an interview with GoAuto this
week, Fiat Chrysler Group Australia
chief executive Veronica Johns said a
big jump in sales for a number of the
group’s brands, which includes US
brands Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge, and
European marques Alfa Romeo and
Fiat, had already taken significant steps
in achieving its parent company’s plans.
“We’re obviously on a big growth
spurt, and we have been for three years,
so we’ve already doubled sales,” Ms
Johns told GoAuto at a pre-launch event
for the group’s next crucial model, the
Jeep Cherokee small SUV.
“If you look back, in 2009 we sold
9500 cars and last year we sold 34,000
cars, so we’ve been on a very big growth
plan for the last three-and-a-half years.
“We’re already doing really well. I don’t
like to talk numbers because it is irrelevant
to anyone outside of our four walls.”
Based on the group’s Australian sales
so far in 2014, this year is also looking
to be a big one, potentially snaring
more than 40,000 new-car buyers if the
momentum continues as expected.
This will come off the back of key
new volume-selling vehicles such as
the Cherokee, all-new halo cars like
the stunning Alfa 4C coupe and the
continuation of an aggressive, big


budget
sales and marketing strategy
that has brought updated models, major
price cuts and a high-profile position in
the marketplace.
Australian sales for most of the
group’s brands have already grown
significantly in the first four months of
this year, with May providing “another
strong month” of sales for the company.
VFACTS figures for May are due out
later today (June 4), but in the first four
months of this year sales for the Alfa
Romeo brand (909 units) were up 122
per cent on last year, Fiat (1979) was up
by a massive 427 per cent and its allimportant
flagship brand Jeep (8758)
was up 31 per cent on last year.
Dodge, which is limited to the Journey
people-mover, and Chrysler, with the
300 large car and Voyager MPV, have

both softened so far this year.
However, Ms Johns said plans were
already in place to build sales across the
board, and in line with its US parent’s
expectations.
“I’ve been at Jeep for the last 16
years, and they always plan out seven
years in advance every year – it’s like a
rolling program,” she said.
“We’re always working on new
things, current models, and the future is

always being spoken about.”
Central to the company’s ambitions is
Jeep, which accounts for two-thirds of Fiat
Chrysler’s sales volume in Australia and
under the recently released global fiveyear
plan was designated a “lead brand”
that will grow its manufacturing base, add
new model lines and double production to
1.9 million vehicles by 2018.
With the new city-oriented Renegade
joining the Cherokee in 2015, followed
by another still-to-be-named compact
model (replacing both Compass and
Patriot) in 2016, an all-new Grand
Wagoneer seven-seater due in 2018 and
a heavily upgraded Grand Cherokee
thrown into the mix as early as next
year, Jeep is hell-bent on reclaiming the
title of world’s biggest SUV brand.
Australia will be a key part of this, with
global Jeep chief Mike Manley making it
clear to Australian journalists, including
GoAuto, at the Geneva motor show in
March that he wanted to see Jeep as not
just the top SUV brand in Australia but in

the top 10 of overall vehicle sales.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Picking up my vehicle on Friday arvo . How do we check what TSBs have been applied for the vehicle. The dealer said they got the vehicle yesterday and something tells me they haven't applied all the TSBs out.
