I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I started it and got out it was in park and not moving, I ran back in my house and when I came out the jeep had went backward down a hill and across the highway and into a ditch. Needless to say there is quite a bit of damage. I am the second owner and never thought to check to see if there were any recalls on the Jeep. I see there is a recall for the exact thing that happen to me...does anyone have any suggestions for me on any recourse I might have with Chrysler?? Any suggestions would be appreciated, even funny ones...
This may or may not apply to you, but ZJ's with the early All Wheel Drive (249) transfer case will roll in park if the front drive shaft has been removed. This transfer case has a viscous coupling that wears out at about 100-125k miles. Owners who do not need 4wd will sometimes remove the front drive shaft instead of going to the expense of replacing the VC.
No No it was just a joke, expecting a reply like this......"what front driveshaft"
The front driveshaft was removed cause of the bad 249 and the guy doesn't even know it, and on a 94 it will roll away in park.
shifter detent kit ...recall was B02 I think. It increases spring tension on the detent. And probaly makes the detent wear out faster.
Actually, it adds a completely separate second detent, with a modified cutout that more positively guides the shifter into Park. The secondary detent uses a roller tip instead of a sliding contact like the original.
