Probably only going to be on the 3.7 and 6.1, there is not actual shift linkage on these with the NAG1, on the rfe the computer cannot just decide to move the shifter to neutral.

Sent from my SCH-I500

It was my understanding that it was on all transmissions.

The shifting is actually the NV245 transfercase shifting into neutral.

Apparently, there is the possibility of a short causing a biased voltage to be picked up by (I think) the FDCM, which misinterprets the signal as a request to shift the transfercase into neutral.

I'm guessing the dealers are just going to re-program the software to not consider those conditions as a request to shift.

I heard almost 500k were recalled with about 300k in the US.idk if it's a the same problem but there have been a couple times where I started mine,put it in drive right away,gave it gas and it acted like it was in neutral for a second.guess we will see!

I think they made over 600k WKs so this should cover most us

Re: Jeep Recall
 
Does my superchips tune need to be pulled before I go in? And will the update be overwritten when I retune after?

Re: Jeep Recall
 
always set your tune back to stock before having service done

What about after? Do TSB updates stick?
