HELP!!! at the service station
 
ok guys i need some quick help posibly. i took the jeep into the dealer to have them checkout the service 4wd system light. I know many say it just needs a flash. anyways after they checked it all out they said it needs a new FDCM (final drive control module). I have a carmax warranty and hopefully they will cover it. but if not, is it easy to replace myself. i know it is under the driver side rear seat. is it just a remove and replace deal? they dealer wants $550 to replace. anyways let me know asap!!!

WOW just got a call from the dealer... carmax warranty is covering it all minus the $75 deductible. will be done in an hour or so... i was getting a little nervous. i know how these warranty places are... I bought the jeep used and it came with the remainder of the warranty. they approved the job on the spot and are paying the dealer directly!!! cant beat that... anyways i am relieved!!!

Did you ask the dealer to just flash it first ???

Dealers will try to sell you the product no matter what, I says just get it flashed while you're there ask for the following ...

FLASH THE WHOLE SYSTEM WITH UPDATES !!! They will charge you the same regardless 1 hour of labor

If that does not work then let you're warranty handle it.

well i got a call saying they got the fdcm in and they found a solenoid or something in the front diff that burned up the old fdcm. so theyre replacing that as well now. it doesnt really matter to me what they replace cause i pay the same deductible as long as it all is under the covered warranty... so thats fine with me. i told them about the flash and they said no the whole module was burned up supposedly. anyways ill keep u all posted...

Curious about this issue. What year and how many miles. Also when you get the work order receipt from the dealer can you post it on here sans the personal info. I wanna see what they replaced.

hey guys just got a call back from the dealer. carmax warranty is covering everything but deductible and the fluid for the front diff. i guess the bad solenoid in the front axle burndt up the fdcm. so everything was replaced and new diff oil was put in the the front diff. my total was $160. oh well i guess since a flash would have cost me $100 and then the front diff oil change... i guess it all worked out good. ill be picking the jeep up in the morning and ill get some more info up on here. thanks guys
