Glad to hear the part is not expensive and relatively easy to change. I would like to carry a backup. No problems in 6K miles.

Does anyone have a Chrysler part number that we should use?

Thanks

It's fine that all of you are planning on replacing this item and/or carrying a spare, but please think of all the families (with and without kids) who drive these vehicles every day in high speed traffic that don't read this message board. They will never know about this until it's perhaps too late. The only way to reach them is through a recall. Please, let's all file a complaint with the NHTSA, *even if it's just to mention the other recalls by number and request them to investigate the Jeeps as well"

I agree with 2007GrandDiesel. Let's get this thing reported and fixed by Chrysler.

Okay, I see your point. According to TSB, this is easy to check and easy to replace and not too costly. It makes sense to let all potential vehicle owners aware and I guess the recall notices are more effective at alerting owners than the TSB's.

As for those who say the dealer wont do anything, why not just quote them the TSB? I thought anyone that is already aware of a TSB can just go to a dealer and have them check the vehicle for the relevant TSB. I cant believe that a recall notice is needed for them to check the crank shaft sensor. But I guess I will find out tomorrow when I have the dealer deal with some other warranty items.

later... I just remembered the spare engine in the garage. I pulled the crank shaft sensor to use as a spare

Tools: You can access this component from above without removing the tcase skid plate but it will be by feel. Otherwise you will need to figure out how to access this sensor (under by removing skid plate, or from side by removing front wheel). The electrical connection comes right off by pressing the tab underneath plug with thumb. The bolt can be removed with a 1/4 inch socket (6 or 12 pt).

The TSB doesn't refer to stalling, only to "engine cranks but will not start". I am not aware of any TSBs related to stalling. That's another reason why this is so urgent. Chances are, even if your engine did stall and you took it to the dealer, they would say "no problem found".

It may not say "stalling" but it sure sounds like this TSB is related since it points to the same potentially defective part. Hopefully the Jeeps get the recall soon so this can be put behind us and hopefully the problem really is just the sensor.

I believe they are related. My Jeep had the failure to start the day after I bought it brand new, however when I took it to the dealer for repair, this TSB had not yet been released. I eventually got it started, and of course "no problem found". Same on the times mine has stalled as well. And I am talking about several different dealers too, from my personal experience.

I got the sensor for $27.00, retail cost is something like $40.00 Today I had it in to get the Pass. Rear view mirrior switched out (as the orginal one had stopped getting power to it!!) and I had them install the sensor that I paid for. Labor was $57.00---So If and when the recall happens ---I will submit the bill for them to pay. SO ---For 80 bucks I have piece of mind---quite worth it.!

I think $57 to remove and install this sensor is way too high. This literally takes about 5 minutes to change out. I cant imagine the labor quote from the books is more than 15 minutes.

Took my GC CRD in to local dealer today and offered to pay for them to inspect the crank position sensor. They found the sensor Julian date to be 07 T 29. This was earlier than the cut off date so the replaced the sensor with a new one. Therefore the service was covered by the warranty.. I had not had any problems with stalling but am planning 6k trip this summer and didn't want to take any chance. 11k miles on the car . 22mpg local driving. 24 highway... Love the car, hate the price of diesel @$4.10 in NC..
