It's all vehicles with the NV245 transfer case (as stated above, with the low range).

It's not the transmission that is shifting from park to neutral (on the rfe's this shift is mechanical, not electrical).

It's a short in the system that is causing the the transfer case to engage the shift motor and go into neutral. Transmission is in park the whole time.

They have updated the software that interprets the shift request to not respond to such a condition (likely by tightening up the voltage requirement or by including additional pre-conditions).

It will not be a big deal. In the interim, use your parking brake just to be safe.

If you have a low range with the an electronic shift to neutral, you will likely be affected (Quadra Drive-II or Quadra Trac-II).

Quadra-Trac 1 systems do not seem to be implicated in the soon-to-be recall.

Anything is possible when it comes to misplaced voltages!

I should clarify, when I say not affected, I mean by the recall action. For the moment this is a safety related voluntary recall. This means they are concerned about getting sued if a vehicle rolls away and causes damage or injury. It does not mean that they care about the circuit board breaking or any of the possible side effects. They are not fixing the broken circuit board or upgrading to one that is not going to break. They are simply preventing that condition from putting the transfer case in neutral via a software update.

(This is what I have heard, but as Chrysler have not mentioned much about this at all, take it with a grain of salt...)
