Because most people that have done this only disconnected for 30mins ,maybe that's not long enough for the system to discharge fully ? I don't really no just a guess really but it won't hurt to try it I guess . But for now I am really wrapped it's the way this car should have come 😀

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel Overland Transmission Issue

i have felt a shudder at lower speeds but hard to tell if it is just the road surface I am going over because it isn't as pronounced as it is at speeds 50-70. But at speeds 50-70 the engine is never under load, and my rpms are between 1.5 and under 2

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel Overland Transmission Issue

Also you can drain everything instantly by touching the positive and negative together once removed from the battery.

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel Overland Transmission Issue

Good luck! If you don't mind, please keep me posted. Dealer still has mine (day 2) and no word as of yet. I just discovered the "fishbites" term, and discovered more users on this forum that have the same effing issue. shocking all jeep does is through software update after software update at it.

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel Overland Transmission Issue

Just got min back from a world record 76 days in the shop. Long story in another thread. I had Fishbites and which occured consistently on warmup. It occured on inclines with 4-5 and 5-6 shifts every time, warm or cold. On flat ground, warm...sometimes.

Now, with the TSB, it appears my shift points are changed to a slightly higher rpm when cold. The shift and TC lockup seem to occur sequentially instead of simultaneously. The TC lockup is also softer. I haven't had a shudder yet. Still testing.

It is located under the front passenger seat - there is a small compartment that you have to remove the cover to access.

Re: 2014 EcoDiesel Overland Transmission Issue
