Plus how many people just use "Park" in the transmission to hold the vehicle and never use the parking brake??

I don't think in 35 years I ever used a parking brake to supplement the parking pawl in the automatic transmission. And the chance of the parking pawl breaking in any automatic transmission is probably better than a transfer case roll away.

I love my junkyard fdcm

My Jeep works like it did when I bot it and I won't be going for any reflashes until I hear some positive reviews.

Not losing any sleep worrying that my Jeep is going to roll away

I am also not loosing any sleep over a rollaway Jeep .The original roll away if I remember correctly was with a remote start vehicle . We have NO remote start Jeeps in the U.K so carrying out the N23 recall here was complete BS.
My Jeep now works perfectly with the scrapyard FDCM that I fitted 3 months ago , yes it cost me £80 but I know 100% it WILL work when needed . CF are not going to sort this s*** out there are not enough people complaining.

I too bought a pre-flashed FDCM and now have my Low4 back.......however I have the dreaded "Service 4WD System" permanently displayed on the dash.
Is this the case with yours???

How about others???

Cheers, Craig

No service light here

I have not seen the service message since putting in the junkyard fdcm.
The service message comes when the fdcm posts a fault code. I would try just clearing the fault code one more time and see if that gets rid of the service message. It should not come back after that because you now have a properly functioning fdcm that will not be posting anymore fault codes.

Well I spoke with 4 different shops (dealerships) in two different states and none have heard of a latest fix all N23 new software.Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I'm not holding my breath but it would be a happy day if I could find a smidgen Of info saying now we have a cure to the safety recall night mare.If there was wouldn't you think there would be a simple sorry for having our heads up our a$$ and causing you folks all this misery,frustration and some of you extra cost chasing our screw up. I would love to believe it's true but at this point to me it's sameo sameo= BS.

I'm checking this so called New Software fix everyday. Like I said, I will check till I get tired of doing it or when it shows another fault. I promise to let you folks know what it does. If you don't hear anything then you know it's good. I would expect about the 3 week mark to be an important time marker for me since that's the best trouble free period after a flash that I have had and that was only one time out of four flash attempts.

Try a little more in depth info as to what these folks did for you as far as a new fix. Like I said I can't find any new info on a new software that has been released. Believe me I would love to be wrong and you be correct but for the sake of so many please prove me incorrect.

Your ecstatic yay sounds like you are at a "yes sir...may I have another?" point of the process.

Did they charge you for actuator replacement?

Nope it was entirely covered by Jeep. We'll see what they want to do this time. I have another Jeep (TJ) that they will never put their hands on and a motorcycle. My wife and I carpool and have no kids so it's not a very big inconvenience for me to keep running to the dealer as long as it doesn't start hitting my pocket book. I'll likely just keep doing this routine for quite some time.

Dan we are a stubborn breed, I am holding my breath for a fix from Chrysler. I just hope people like us stick around to hold Chrysler responsible. Hopefully in our rants we stop a few Jeep sales til this mess is over. Hopefully no one gets hurt from a rollaway Jeep, unfortunately someone will get hurt eventually from a rollaway. Let's face it thousands of Jeeps are getting pre n23 fdcms one of those will eventually roll away, if not from the present owner then the next "sucker" that buys it. I am sure when people trade in Jeeps with old fdcms they are not going to say " oh by the way have the next owner use the ebrake because..." Blood will be on Chryslers hands just like Chevy and Toyota, then the lawyers and nhtsb will be giving out MAJOR fines because Chrysler knew what people were doing to get their Jeeps to function properly. I know there are people like me that religiously set their ebrake but what if someone else uses that car and does not have the same habbits. It is a gamble it is not a definite that the ebrake will always be set or hold the Jeep from rolling. If you park on a hill put the Jeep in neutral and set the ebrake you would be surprised how hard you have to pull up on that brake to stop the Jeep from rolling, don't believe me try it. I have strong arms but my wife and others wifes and children may not have enough strength to stop the Jeep from rolling. This is a lot more serious then people think. I sleep well for my Jeep not to roll away but not others. I just want the Jeep back to where it works properly. rant over.. A note to the lawyers at Jeep WAKE UP!!!

That's bs sorry to hear it. I'd like to say they can't do that but if it's a small town they probably get away with it.
