Re: Recall- 2016 Jeep GC for bad transmission wiring harness

So as usual, we have to hear from a 3rd party what an auto manufacturer should have told us much earlier.

"According to the automaker, a number of wiring harnesses in these SUVs might have been incorrectly crimped. If that happens, this wiring harness might lose its electrical connection. If that happens, the affected vehicles might end up stuck in Park or Neutral after the vehicle has been brought to a full stop.

As with every other recall, owners will be notified by first-class mail, and will need to bring their vehicles to dealerships to have the remedy applied. Fiat Chrysler says that owners should make extra sure to use the parking brake when leaving the vehicle until those cars have been brought in and fixed."

Re: Recall- 2016 Jeep GC for bad transmission wiring harness

is all i can say...

FCA needs to implement a better QA system in general, especially prior to a new production run. They have seriously been lacking in the QA department for quite some time now. I guess when all you care about is volume and dollars, these things can be fixed afterwards.

Re: Recall- 2016 Jeep GC for bad transmission wiring harness

Has anyone with 2016 checked their VIN on Jeep's recall page (says database updated on 5/17/16). I checked my VIN and it says no recall. Wondering if the recall is only for Gas models.

Re: Recall- 2016 Jeep GC for bad transmission wiring harness

Sigh...

Just when we were trying to get this shifter problem behind us.

But on a positive note, at least it's a recall, and not something that the corporation fights for years. Probably early 2016 builds. It's dang near impossible to figure out every problem during testing.

Re: Recall- 2016 Jeep GC for bad transmission wiring harness

Do the 2016 V8 models have the fancy adjustable steering as well? If so then I'm surprised that those wouldn't be included in the recall, then again how do you guys knows yours isn't included in the recall? Didn't it just get announced?

Jeep recall page. Doesn't necessarily mean it's up to date though.

Re: Recall- 2016 Jeep GC for bad transmission wiring harness

Looks like they are recalling half a million Wranglers also.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV is recalling about 500,000 Jeep Wrangler SUVs because potentially faulty components in the steering wheel could prevent the air bag from deploying in a crash.

The company on Wednesday said 498,985 Jeep Wranglers from the 2007-2010 model years are part of the recall, including 392,464 in the United States. An additional 7,435 model-year 2011-2016 vehicles equipped with right-hand drive for special duty also are affected in the U.S.

The recall is to replace clockspring assemblies and related components as well as install new steering wheel back covers and steering-column shrouds.

Re: Recall- 2016 Jeep GC for bad transmission wiring harness

A trip to the safercar.gov website clarifies the details of the recall for early 2016MY Grand Cherokees:

| Safercar | National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

As noted in the report, the fix includes replacing the shifter assembly - drivetrain/engine has no bearing on whether a vehicle is affected or not. Additionally, the recall covers early 2016MY vehicles built prior to February 20th, 2016.
