Shifter Safety Recall S27 (14/15) Repair PDF - 2.3 Hour Repair Time

First, thanks to f1anatic for posting a link in another thread to an article about the possible recall repair. I was able to download the embedded document into a pdf and have attached it to this post.

The "repair" is quite involved - software only reprogramming FOUR modules with an estimated 2.3 hours!!!

See attached pdf.

Thanks Dan for posting this. I a bit concerned about what the "auto-park" addition entails though. Does that mean if you open the door it goes into park?

Yes unless you have your seat belt on then it will not

What exactly are they reprogramming with the Instrument Panel that takes 2 hours? I hope i get updated gauges and features also.

Thanks for sharing this. Gotta setup some time this week as we're going out of town for the 4th holiday, but I'm sure the dealer is going to be swamped with others preparing for travel.

This recall has been put into high-gear (a pun?) because it is believed this is how Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin (Ensign Pavel Chekov) was killed. He got out of his Jeep Grand Cherokee, leaving the engine running, and the transmission not in park.

Re: Shifter Safety Recall S27 (14/15) Repair PDF - 2.3 Hour Repair Time

Got my shifter recall done on Friday, took over 4 hours to update 4 computers on the Summit. Now when the car is in neutral and you open the door the car automatically shifts into Park. There is no alarm but the EIF says "Autopark".

Wrong, this was released June 13th, he died June 19th. Let's keep this grounded in facts folks.

Re: Shifter Safety Recall S27 (14/15) Repair PDF - 2.3 Hour Repair Time

I'm going to take my chances that I know how to put my GC into park instead of letting the dealer touch my vehicle.

Re: Shifter Safety Recall S27 (14/15) Repair PDF - 2.3 Hour Repair Time

I just love the "SUBJECT" in the PDF:
"The electronic shift lever on about 536,000 of the above vehicles may allow a roll away
condition if the vehicle’s engine is left running, the parking brake is not engaged, and
the transmission is not in the “PARK” position before exiting the vehicle."
Any vehicle will/may roll away if left in neutral with the parking brake not engaged, regardless of the type of shifter .

That was my initial feeling, but I feel it must be done if I ever plan on selling or trading it in. I am not looking forward to giving up an entire morning.
