Jeep Wrangler YJ Recalls

I recently found out through a carfax report that my YJ is part of a few recall campaigns by Chrysler, and the previous owners did not take appropriate action once the recall(s) were initiated by taking the YJ to a dealership. I've contacted Chrysler and they told me that my YJ is part of the following campaigns and that I can have them fixed free of charge:

1) Recall Campaign # B03 Park Brake Pedal Assembly
2) Recall Campaign # 347t Brake Hose 87-90 Yj
3) Recall Campaign # 617 Oxygen Sensor/Cat. ConvERT.
4) Recall Campaign # 747 Disc Brake Rotors


Does anyone know what each of the four recall campaigns involves in terms of repairs? What will they do to my YJ once it is in the dealership?

Have any of you taken your YJ to be fixed due to recall status? If so, what happened?

I am sorry man, but once again simply searching would have brought up about a dozen threads on this topic.


To answer your question, the parking brake assembly gets replaced, they inspect and/or replace the rotors, the brake hose is fixed and as for the cat/o2 thing, I have no idea.

And for anyone else wondering..... go to jeep.com and then to the owner section and then enter the last eight digits of your VIN and it'll tell you if there are any outstanding recalls.

Good question, but I think the recall might still be valid on your '89 because mine is a '90 and I was still instructed to take it to my nearest Chrysler dealer.

I'll take care of this next week and post results.

Ummm. Bringing in my YJ for those recalls would only confuse the living daylights outta them.... considering most of those parts were replaced with either aftermarket or other makes and models. lol

I know this is a old thread, but i had to add that i looked mine up and theres a sending unit gasket recall on mine. I called for it and they are going to replace it for free. Funny thing is the guys sounded really mad about having to do it. Ha take that stealership

yeah they dont like doing recall items. They do get paid but its only at what the corporate pays them (which is not much) and they make no money on the parts. They still need to change the parts.

just be sure to check your rig over real well before leaving the dealership to see if they actually took things apart...I've heard some people comment that they will say that particular repair was done without actually doing anything to the Jeep

ok cool thanks if they do change it out i hope they break the sending unit or something so they have to replace it for free. I think the sending unit is going or something. I just replaced the circuit board behind my gauges cleaned all the corrosion off the prongs. Every gauge works accept for fuel gauge pinging full which it use to bob up and down before. I checked the wiring for corrosion everything is good so lets see if its almost falling apart when they take it out. Or they will see i purchased a Wk from them still paying it off though and fix it out of the kindness of their hearts( which i doubt haha). If not ill be using odometer or replace it my self which doesn't sound fun at all.
