Re: Service Electronic Throttle Control 2014 Grand Cherokee

Mine has done this three times now. At 3k then 6k and now 9k. Being towed this morning.
Mine also says exhaust blocked drive at highway speeds and engine light and limp mode on.

Last time they replaced an exhaust temp sensor. First time said hose had come off throttle body. This time I phoned jeep HQ who could only say they would escalate repairs. Been in dealers for 6 days in 3 months ownership. Only lucky issue is it stops within 10 k of home.....
Still waiting for Jeep assist tow truck as I write....

Re: Service Electronic Throttle Control 2014 Grand Cherokee

GC towed in and i received call from dealer. They said exhaust temp sensor had failed again and Australia was out of parts so being sourced from USA. Should be on road in 3 weeks. Hopefully the new sensors are more hardy than the last one that lasted 3k. And I hope there is no other reason why the sensors are failing. I had changed the number plates to "Recall" last month so the dealer could understand my perception of the GC. Started my 1999 jag to use now and strangely everything works..........

Re: Service Electronic Throttle Control 2014 Grand Cherokee

Exhaust temp is related to the throttle body?

Re: Service Electronic Throttle Control 2014 Grand Cherokee

First time i had the large full screen throttle body service flashing warning. Dealer said hose had come off.
sec and third time exhaust temp sensor failure meant warning of blocked exhaust filter came up and so did throttle body symbol and engine light.
Dealer said throttle body light came on bec of exhaust sensor failure and when replace everything reset ok for 3000k until this week when at 8990 it all happened again.
I only have word of jeep tech that they are related. So i have no independent confirmation except they both came on together after leaving home after 4 kilometres..... which implies the exhaust temp sensor is meant to send signals once a certain temp is reached ie after 5 min drive and it didnt. So i now wait for new sensor.
Will use the narvara for the xmas trip away until GC proves reliable...

Re: Service Electronic Throttle Control 2014 Grand Cherokee

Today I received call from Chrysler Australia (CT) stating their tech team was talking to my dealer tech about issue. They said part that failed was a different part in exhaust temp sensor this time but had no details. As to what is actually happening re part failure I dont have details yet but will ask for them to put on forum and also be able to tell repairer next time what was replaced. CT said they had a record of all the repair work and diagnoses so I will request that.... Still promising a repair by Xmas....... Paul

Re: Service Electronic Throttle Control 2014 Grand Cherokee

Got GC back today after 5 weeks.... when they actually checked the exhaust temp sensor this week it worked ok. They had relied n the car ecu telling them it was faulty...they did the software update available 3 weeks ago and now everything works..... quite a saga and i can see the dealers and Chrysler dont relate too well. It took the dealer a week to respond to Chrysler's advice that the sensor was not faulty, which is why Chrysler had not sent the part from USA.....

Re: Service Electronic Throttle Control 2014 Grand Cherokee

So which part ended up being the issue?, as my 2014 grand Cherokee has now come up with the same problem and has to be towed 1000km to the nearest jeep dealer in townsville for repair. I hope they figure into out first go
