Shifter recall question???

I know there are a few threads about the shiftier recall but I'd like to hear from someone who's had it done.

I brought my Jeep in the other day for the recall. Today I decided to try it to see how it actually works. While in drive with foot on brake I unfastened my seat belt and opened drivers door. Nothing happened??? Then took my foot off the brake! Nothing happened! Tried it in reverse / neutral still nothing happened. (Did not go into park)

Am I missing something? Has anyone tested this?

Before I call the dealership and start bitc##ing about the inconvenience of having to bring it back and telling me it's been done when it hasn't I wanted to hear from others. Are your Jeeps going into park when in gear and the drivers door is opened?

If so in my case WTF don't these idiots check before they release the vehicle. I guess I needed to check before I left! Sorry about the rant but this just pisses me off!

Take it back. seat belt unbuckled + foot off break + opening door = auto park. I have tested it a few times and of course the automatic car wash people hate it lol

Shifter recall question???

I had mine done yesterday and now the dash lights will not shut off and the shifter feels like the heated steering wheel. It's been in my garage since 5:30 and this is what it still looks like

Re: Shifter recall question???

Paullee01 - So you tried it stopped, placed in neutral, unbuckled driver's seat belt, foot off brake and then opened the driver's door and it didn't auto park? If so, you'll need to take it back. I see you are in West Palm Beach (I'm in Miami Beach area), at least you took yours to a dealership in Palm Beach County --- Miami-Dade County dealerships aren't good...especially Aventura CJDR.

I suspect that one of the 4 modules didn't get re flashed, I would take it back and tell them to redo it, I check every S27 recall I do to make sure it works correctly, I assumed that all technicians did?

Definitely looks like you "bus" is staying awake for whatever reason, I haven't had one do that after the S27 but it needs looked at so the battery doesn't die.

Re: Shifter recall question???

Seems they only do the recalls on Monday and Friday. I'm guessing that's the days the technician is there. I'm bringing it back this Monday Will keep everybody updated.

Well they came and jumped my yesterday and took it to the shop. They claimed all they did was charge the battery and everything was fine. Doesn't make any sense to me but I guess as long as it works

I go to Arrigo in WPB and established a good relation with the service writer (that may help) They've always taken care of my issues. I'm just annoyed that they didn't check before releasing the jeep back to me.
