Recall question.

So I found that there was a recall for the zj shift linkage on the tyranny. This recall was back in 2002. I know the PO did not take it in to get this fixed. So how would I take care of this since the recall was 11 years ago? I know it's usually free to have recalled parts replaced, but would it still be free now? I guess I'm a little confused. Thanks for the help!

Call dealer, ask. Likely a recall for safety, so they should still perform the update.

Safety updates are good for as long as the vehicle is on the road.

When asking for my build sheet I also asked for a list of recalls performed on my vehicle and I had everything the next day.

If you are worried about it then just don't leave it running when you are not in drivers seat and put E-Brake on.

You can get build sheet here. http://www.jeep.com/wccsapp/universa...ull&category=U

I know there were 2 recalls for the shifter linkage. One was to prevent you from putting it in gear unless your foot was on the brake, and the other was just to tighten it per say, give it a more ratchety feel. Neither really need to be fixed if you don't feel like leaving it at the dealer.

My 94 build sheet has this near the bottom...

Our records indicate that the following recall campaigns have not been
performed by an authorized dealer:

B02 FLOOR SHIFTER SECONDARY DETENT SYSTEM
733 BRAKE PEDAL SHIFT INTERLOCK


We suggest that you contact your local authorized Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®
or Ram dealer to make arrangements for an inspection and, if necessary,
corrective action at no charge to you.

Please take a copy of this message with you at the time of service to
aid the process. Although not required, it is recommended to bring a
copy of the recall notification with you to your dealer's service
department when you bring your vehicle in for this service.

If you wish to obtain further information, please contact the Chrysler
Group Recall Assistance Center at 1-800-853-1403.

On February 15, 2002, Chrysler Group announced the recall of 1.6 million Jeep Grand Cherokee sport-utility vehicles produced from model year 1993 through 1998. Prior to announcing the recall of these Jeeps, it was alleged in lawsuits, including a suit filed by Lieff Cabraser, that the Jeep Grand Cherokee was defectively designed because the vehicle could shift suddenly from park into reverse, even when the engine was not running.

The Alleged Jeep Reverse Defect
Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs that have the defect may appear to be in park. However, a hidden internal shaft lever within the transmission can actually land on a flat space between reverse and park, leaving the car in hydraulic neutral. From this spot, referred to as “false park mode,” slight vibrations or movements can allegedly cause the Jeep’s lever to slip into reverse gear and the Jeep to move.

For Jeeps produced from 1993 through 1998 that have not been repaired under the recall, the shift from park to reverse could occur when the Jeep’s motor is running or shut off. A door slamming, or even an air conditioner cycling, could cause the shifter to slip and move the vehicle into reverse.

According to press reports, the rate of “park to reverse” complaints for Jeep Grand Cherokees was more than five times greater than for any similar SUV made by a different company. Prior to the recall, more than 860 people complained to the government or to DaimlerChrysler about “inadvertent rollway in reverse” incidents involving Jeep Grand Cherokees, which allegedly caused at least 359 crashes, 184 injuries and five deaths.

I would highly recommend at least checking especially if you have kids or anyone else that rides in or drives the vehicle.

Part number they will use on the recall is CCXRB020. Install instructions. http://ww2.justanswer.com/uploads/do...204539_b02.pdf

I didn't want to take it out there and decided to do it myself.

If you have a dealer nearby, just let them do it. It's free to you and they get paid from Chrysler.

I just don't like anyone else messing with mine, and didn't want to listen to the sales pitch.
