This sounds reasonable...except for the fact that few people use their 4low so why would the actuator be worn?

Well it looks like even with a new actuator I'm still getting the same problems. Went to engage it before pulling a trailer up a hill and I got the Service 4wd System light. Again

I had the recall done in August, but didnt start reading about the negative effects it had since a few days ago.

When I shift into neutral before I do the shift, the "N" LED does not light up on my center console. The first time I tried to shift it, I got a "service system" message. Everytime I tried to shift since then, I never got that message again and the LED does not light up. What options do we have?

N23 recall issues

I have a 2008 Grand Cherokee limited and had the recall serviced on 9/14/13. Two days ago my 4 low stopped working and I got the service indicator light. My power drivers seat is also randomly moving for the last two days, coincidentally! We called the dealership who argued profusely but am taking it back next week. I also called the Chrysler number on the recall notice and of course they know nothing. From talking with a technician at another dealership, he stated that if the flash is not done completely these problems occur. We will see what the service department does next week!

I am not sure, it's been a while, but IIRC the actuator also deals with front/rear torque distribution in normal operation.

I had N23 done a while back (while fighting over other issues), but I ran thru 4Lo and back a few times in the driveway yesterday and mine seems fine.. so not ALL N23's are a disaster.. knock on wood..

Mine has been a full blown out disaster! Got the N23 done 3 times and then just had the actuator replaced and now it doesn't work at all. Highly pissed to say the least. Wish I would have never took the dang Jeep in!

Great. So what now?? Just live without 4-low and hope Chrysler owns up for the disaster they have created. I demanded the dealer to Reflash mine after they diagnosed the actuator bad and it worked again for 2 weeks went out and checked it again last night to see if it was still working and got the service 4wd indicator again.

I have no idea. I don't understand how some people are getting the recall done and not having a problem? Or they're not actually getting the recall done???

Yeah I don't get it. Has anybody seen if the recall can be undone?? I will love to just take my chances with my jeep just rolling away.

I bet 90% of the people that get it done don't use 4lo. If EVERYONE that got the flash done or if it was a requirement of the update to test 4lo for proper operation there'd be ALOT more being done to correct the problem.

I checked mine a few times today. Still working fine almost 3 weeks after the 2nd (corrected) flash.

Has anyone else had, say, an 09 or 10 fail? Since mine was one of the last made, I wonder if it has some revised or newer parts?

I have a brand new actuator and it didn't help. They'll probably tell me its my FDCM and to kick rocks
