New Transmission for my 2015 Cherokee

Well, I guess it was my turn for a new transmission...my story:
While driving home the picture of an engine displayed on my dashboard meaning service engine. I drove the next morning to the dealer to have it checked out. Based on the error codes displayed the diagnoses was a NEW TRANSMISSION was needed. Note: I previously had all the required updates/flashes performed.


The dealer [so far] has handled this very well! They arranged for a free [except for gas of course] rental car without me having to ask.


I have my Cherokee with the new transmission for approximately a week and so far so good. I am keeping my fingers crossed that FCA has finally fixed all the 9-speed trans issues.

How many miles did you have on it before it gave up the ghost?

One way is to take it to a dealership when it's time for oil change and rotation. They hook their wiTECH tool to your KL's OBDII port and it scans for updates assigned to your VIN. Then it downloads any needed updates and loads them.

You should check your account at https://www.moparownerconnect.com periodically for any recalls. If you don't, not a big deal since they will mail a notice to you.

Exactly as "Array" mentioned, Take it into your Jeep dealer for its oil changes and routine maintenance.
The cost is not that much more, and you get the benefit of building that dealer relationship and keeping TSBs and any other problems at bay. They will also detect any error codes that show up of a system detected problem.

Mine goes in 2x a year for oil changes. They also check the tires if rotation is needed. They do not rotate unless needed. They also scan my Cherokee. If they have no time to do a "required" update we will reschedule that TSB and do any recalls.
This last time they had to order parts for the lift gate recall. They will call when the parts come in and schedule me for it along with any applicable TSBs.

The one important thing you want to remember: Not all TSBs apply to your Cherokee even though your year and model etc. is listed on the TSB.
The TSBs are governed by your VIN # only. All applicable TSBs are assigned to your VIN by FCA. So you see many TSBs in this forum for the Cherokee but if they are not assigned to your Cherokee's VIN they do not apply. That is unless you are having an issue that one addresses.
TSBs will show up under your VIN and the dealer will for sure do the ones that are "required". The other ones are considered open as needed. I have several open ones but as the dealer told me he hates messing with the software if I am not having any issues. They can always do them at a future date if needed.
I have a 12/11/13 build and have only had 1 TCM/PCM update required.
Kind of surprising considering the volume on the software updates I have seen. As the dealer told me if they are NOT required by VIN # he does not want to do them.
