Re: Recall for 2014 Jeeps To Fix Instrument Cluster Issues

This is really good news! One less thing to worry about for people who haven't purchased yet.

Re: Recall for 2014 Jeeps To Fix Instrument Cluster Issues

All I got to say is that we, the people who build them, told "them" about this last year during PILOT BUILD!!!!!! season.

I am however, very glad that they finally found the solution!

That is all.

Well perhaps they are better now but the earlier X5s (up to 2006 or 2007) were notorious for transmission problems. They'd sometimes eat one during warranty...and often just out of warranty. It all depended on how "spirited" it was driven--BMW didn't do a fantastic job of matching the transmission to the engines. It was most notable on the V8 models.

Re: Recall for 2014 Jeeps To Fix Instrument Cluster Issues

I definitely acknowledge those 06 and 07 issues as well. Those totally sucked. On another note, how to we solve the recurring UConnect/8.4A/AN issues??

Well...I prefer these kinds of problems. Perhaps that's the engineer in me but software issues are infinitely preferrable (and easier to fix) than hard issues like powertrain components.

and that's why I didn't order the Panoroof. Something so big screams problems. Looks beautiful but I rarely use the one on my current car.

Glad to hear this recall is being done before I receive mine. As long as it isn't something like the brake lights failing or the rear diff catching on fire, I can live with it.

That is all.

Why would it take them so long to find a solution?
And why would they release them to the public knowing there was a problem?

Thanks for building them...you guys did a great job on mine.

Re: Recall for 2014 Jeeps To Fix Instrument Cluster Issues

For some odd reason, it only affects a select few vehicles.

Vehicle engineering and manufacturing is a bit more complicated than most people think...

That's a main reason I got my Limited - I wanted a solid roof with no chance of leaks or rattles. Wife's always had one in her cars; I never use them and can't stand another heat (sunlight) source, especially on the top of my head which no longer has any insulation. I would have liked to have had the factory HIDs, but didn't want to pay for the Lux II package to get them. Installed HIDs recently and love the look and function of them in the standard halogen assemblies, so I'm good on that count. Over 8K miles on my Limited with no problems and it's never been back for any warranty work.

As it is a software issue, it's likely one that involves timing and sequence. A certain sequence of events at the right time causes the issues. The reason it only seems to affect a few vehicles out of the total is just statistics -- if the sequence and timing is rare, it will EVENTUALLY happen to all the vehicles over a long enough timeframe, with some happening sooner than others. The sequence and timing may also be related to driver habits and any number of other external variables which influence the inputs...making the likelihood greater or lesser at a given time for a given vehicle.

As you can guess, this is also why such software behavior can be really difficult to nail down and find -- the incidents happening give more and more information until finally enough is there to pinpoint what bug is causing it all.

It also explains why such issues happen to begin with. Especially when you have multiple systems interacting with one another.
