Ahhhhhh, I see.
I didn't realize that some issues not occurring right away. Definitely sounds like a fast, unthought out fix to me. I think I will wait for recall 2.0 and just practice using my E Brake more when I auto start it (which I only use in the winter anyways).
Also, my 4Lo is working fine, if it screws up after the recall, I'm past warranty so the dealer will try to ding me for parts this recall broke.

Had recall flashed and 4lo stopped working a week later. Took in for repair and had to have actuator replaced. Not sure if it was caused by recall, but seems odd. Just thought I would share.

Oh, got Service 4WD System message when trying to engage 4Lo.

Luckily I have extended warranty, but $100 deductible. So getting a clunking noise in front end fixed as well (They think it is the passenger side drive shaft)

I'm in Canada and i just got the second notice that my dealer is ready to apply the fix. I worry for my actuator though. I think i will hold off for another month.

Don't get it done. It will mess up and probably not work right ever again. Mine has been in 3 times and still no 4 low and they want to replace the actuator. They'll do it under warranty in a heartbeat bc they know that's the problem but if you don't have warranty, like my case, they will try and stick it to you. Funny thing is is that they were shown it worked flawlessly when I dropped it off the first time for the recall and now after 3 times I have to deal with Chrysler about getting them to fix the problem they caused.

Had it applied yesterday. Everything works fine. Tried 4low engagement in parking lot before I accepted the vehicle back.

Took my 05 WK in to the dealer about a week ago for the front diff actuator. Since the jeep is new to me I asked them to check and see if the N23 recall had been done. When i got the jeep back they told me it hadn't been and that they had taken care of it while it was in the shop. I was a little ticked since i hadn't asked them to do it I had just wanted to know if it had been done. Guess it was partly my fault for not being clear. Either way i checked 4-low before I left and all was good, at least until i checked today. Now as soon as you pull the lever it gives the service 4wd and wont engage. Guess its back to the dealer to see what my options are.

Took my CRD into the dealership today for the Service 4WD Error after the N23 Recall. Was told I need a new FDM. Hopefully it's not backordered. Seems like this issue is happening quite a bit.

I know they're backordered up to 30+ here in town. Its funny how they're flashing these vehicles and then replacing the transfer case actuator. IF you're under warranty. I'm dealing with the service manager and Chrysler now. Hoping to get this issue fixed soon.

+1 here; called the 800 number listed in one of these posts to tell Chrysler about their "fix". I have a warranty that will take care of repairs, but just trying to do my part so others can get the repair covered by Chrysler.

When I called that number the lady told me that the recall had nothing to do with the 4wd! I about lost it then.

Let's hope they figure out a solution soon. I like using the hill decent feature. Otherwise it will be a set or warped rotors

Just dropped the heep off at the service dept. Who wants to bet I get a call saying its the transfer case actuator.

I would be willing to bet that'll be the diagnosis at some point.
