Re: Incorrect DEF - See dealer

I got the "incorrect DEF fluid detected" message earlier last week, and made an appointment to bring it in yesterday. Two weekends ago I added 2 gallons of DEF purchased at my dealership, which showed "packaged 6-15-15" and "best used by 6-15-17". Also over a few weeks or so the "check engine" light would come on and later go off intermittently.

Got a call this morning and they had this issue corrected (at least, I hope). They found code PO2EE and replaced the CAT (p/n 68243268-AB) under RTT 15-093, and performed RTT14-075 inspect DEF and reroute DEF line. They said that the "check engine" light showed the PO2EE code which was included in RTT 15-093.

They also performed RTT 14-087 flash HVAC module, RTT 14-107 flash PCM module, RTT 15-098 inspect EGT EGR temp sensor (cleaned and reinstalled), RRT 14-050 flash BCM module, recall P641 flash steering column control module and TSB 21-012-15 flash TCM for the shift enhancement (bump on 2-1 downshift and improved upshifts).

Although I only drove it home 10 miles, the shifts are a lot better and it doesn't hesitate quite as much on acceleration from a stop.

It was a very good dealership experience - they knew what to inspect and did it, had the parts in stock and got it done in one day, and got me a rental car under the extended warranty without a hassle. The Asst. Service Mgr who wrote me up said they've done quite a few of these, especially on earlier production GCs (mine is a Dec. 2013 build).

I have been using Peak blue DEF from Sams club from the beginning.
10.00 for a 2.5 gal jug. I have been thru all the P20EE stuff ...DEF tested every time and not once mentioned that it didn't conform or was old....
Only thing cheaper is the local truckstop!

Just curious which dealer? Good service departments are hard to come by and I may be down in SoCal next month.

Thanks

Re: Incorrect DEF - See dealer

I just got my new 2015 JGC Overland. Does anybody know if the DEF issue is still an issue with recent builds of the Eco Jeep?

I want to do the correct thing re DEF fluid but can't see why Peak or any other major brand that states they meet the specs. for DEF can't be used. If the issue is the 2014 and early 20015 Catalytic converter and software issues then I should be "OK" on using any fresh DEF from any company that states they meet the specs. Right?

Thanks
