Another shifter recall on 2016 WK2

On August 18 2016 there is another recall on 2016 JGC manufactured before Feb 2016.

Nothing pops up if enter VIN on Jeep recall website, but the TSB was out there.

Anyone has more info on this?

Re: Another shifter recall on 2016 WK2

Old news... already had mine replaced on July 11th.

And it's a safety recall, not a TSB.

Did you read it? Only 2,000 vehicles are affected. That is a small % of the cars produced in that time frame. So your vin may never pop up. It also says that the dealers will initially only receive enough parts to fix 5% of the affected cars.

It goes on to say this is a revision to an existing recall, not a new one. The only thing that has changed is the repair procedure. This can happen when people in the field find a better way to do something.

You provided the link to the document that has all the information.

Can't speak for him, but really doubt he had any problem. I remember reading on safecars website that only 3 documented cases triggered this recall.

I waited for almost 2 months before I got it fixed, as I didn't wanted to make a special trip to the dealership. I got it done when they did my free oil change.

Don't sweat as it is not a widespread issue.

Another shifter recall on 2016 WK2

There should be a build date on your window sticker if you still have it. If not the build date should be on your driver side door. You don't need to have it done if your jeep was built after February.

Apparently it can cause a fire if it's an older build date and the recall is not done.

What does fire have to do with this?

Re: Another shifter recall on 2016 WK2

The original S28 recall on the shifter was for poor wire crimping somewhere in the shifter. It could cause the trans to shift into neutral (if you were lucky) or into park (if you weren't lucky) with no way to get it back into drive. This could happen while moving or at a stop. It had nothing to do with the potential for fire.

I had assumed the wire crimp issue had something to do with the wiring harness but the recall actually replaces the entire shifter assembly.

That recall was mailed to owners whose vehicles fell within the build dates listed in the S28 recall.

The TSB appears to be revised service procedures for performing the original S28 recall. It still only applies to the owners originally affected by and receiving the S28 recall notice.

The recall itself is revision II dated August and states:

NOTE: The service procedure has been updated.

The OP put a link to the revised recall.

That's correct, Bill. I'm just trying to clarify that the S28 recall only applies to those who received the notice in the mail. It doesn't apply to anyone else so I'm trying to head off another one of those "I'll be damned if I'm gonna get that done" threads.

I'm not sure where you are getting a TSB from. I checked WK2Jeeps and the only reference number I see related to this starts with RC indicating a recall. That gets treated differently than a TSB.

I thought you were saying there is a TSB in addition to the recall.
