Uh oh, MIL on 2015 EcoDiesel

This morning my MIL came on. Taking it to the dealer this afternoon to see what the problem is. I'm guessing something exhaust/DEF related. I have a 2015 GC Limited Ecodiesel, 11/30/14 build date, 3078 miles on the odometer, Dom's DEF plate installed the day I got it.

Dealer is super busy because it is spring break here, and lots of folks are having work done while they are out of town. May be a day or 2 before they can look at it.

I'll keep you all posted on my little service adventure. Here's to hoping it's a quick and easy fix!

And my jeep is ready for pickup. They said it just needed a system update. No work was needed, just a re - flash and reset and it is good to go. I'll get more details when I pick it up, but at least it wasn't a DEF related problem.

They said there was no code. Not sure why the MIL came on, but the reset cleared it. They don't expect it reoccur...and I'm pretty sure they wouldn't tell me even if they did.

Same thing happened on my wife's 14 Overland Eco. Light came on, I panicked, but dealer got her in next day and said was just for outstanding TSB's? The info would have to be passed wirelessly to the vehicle if this is true right? I can see no other way the vehicle would know to throw a code for an update unless it was wireless signal?

Having said that, I still believe it threw a def related code and it will happen again. We did do a 1500 mile Disney World trip a week after the code/update and all is well so far.

You can get yourself an OBD2 connector Bluetooth adaptor, which would let you see and get the error codes before you bring it in at dealer... I bought one on AMAZON and paid $16.00 shipped. Give you tones of live cool info on your JGC...I just like to know what error codes I am getting before arriving at the stealer...I just have some mistrust these days with them...

Also, if you don't have a code reader Autozone will check them for free. Having your own reader is well worth the investment.
