Superchips tune is an engine tuner, but it also includes features to adjust your tire size, TPMS, and a few other things.

I am with you, I am concerned about ill effects involved with the AEV tuner.....and the Superchips for that matter since I have both.

Does Chrysler know about these issues after the re-flash?

I may hold out for more info before getting it done.

Is it in the pcm? Is it in he ecu? Based on your experience. My guess is that the failed circuit board is in the actuator and the old actuator in your jeep has actually failed and that is why he reflash does not work, but that is just my guess. It would be good if your dealer would let you perform an autopsy on the old actuator.
These are good questions I have no answer for. I do know after 3 reflash attempts my dealer ordered a new actuator, which was cancelled by Chrysler, and a "different" new actuator put on back order. The "new" new actuator has been installed, and all seems fine now.

I'll mention it again.....if you have either of the name brand (Superchips or Diablosport) tuners, be sure to return them to the stock settings BEFORE you take it in for the recall. Otherwise, it'll cost you ~$100 to get it reset and/or you'll have a $300-400 paperweight. Don't know if this applies to the lesser known tuners though.

The wife just picked up her WK after 2 visits to the dealer for no 4lo. I tried 4lo when she was test driving it and it worked fine. After she bought it I showed her how to put it in 4lo and the message popped up and no 4lo. The first trip to the dealer ( 2 weeks ago) they had it for 2days. They determined the transfer case shift motor bad. The wife dropped it off Monday this week. Got it back today. Supposedly fixed. I will be testing it later.
Dealer has been great and providing free loaner cars while they had her Jeep. Got to drive a '12 Compass. It is by no means a Jeep.

I took mine in for another reflash today. 4 Low worked when I got it home. We will see if it stays fixed.

Dealer installed the new transfer case shift motor and 4 lo works again.

I'd say it would probably be wise to set the AEV module back to stock as well.

Shift Motor is another name for Actuator.

Joy. Had mine at the dealer today to have a dead TPMS sensor replaced under warranty. They did the N23 recall too. Get home, no 4-lo, "Service 4wd System". GAH!

So, the question I have is this...why are some not checking your 4Lo right in the dealers lot before you take it home?
It takes a few min of time, to engage 4lo, move 5 feet to confirm its working then disengage it. Going five feet on pavement will not hurt your drivetrain.

I'm not keen on the idea of jacking with my computer just in case I have a problem sometime down the road - my tcase works just fine as is.
Is there any way without cracking into to stuff they can tell if you in fact need a reflash? Do they have any idea what causes this to happen?

I mean it's typical IT style "fixit" bs if you ask me.

The problem isn't being fixed - just a bandaid to cover the symptoms - same thing a pharmacist does.

^^^ I agree with Scott..........and I stand by my original post to the thread.

I still have the recall notice tucked away in the garage if a problem ever arises but so far as I can tell this "fix" is causing far too many issues for me to go volunteering my Jeep.

I did and it worked. It was a couple weeks later that I tried and got the error. I think that's why the dealers can't figure it out and end up changing the actuators. They don't really know what's causing it.
