Does this now mean a faulty transfer case actuator motor could be covered as part of the recall?

I had the recall done at one dealer in Seattle area, then the TCAM at another when I was in Vegas. Of course, being Vegas, it was a gamble, and I paid for it. :-)

Just wondering if I have a case to transfer some money back. (Sorry about the puns, I couldn't resist.)

Transfer case recall

Ok I have found that this soft ware undate problem maybe be that if your dealer mechanics are not removing or doing updates properly you will get the advice 4wd warning if your dealer ( as mine did) tells you that that is not or has no effect GO TO ANOTHER DEALER have it looked at by a good trusted mechanic. I am in New Jersey if you can try performance dodge in Woodbury they did it right. If the update is not preformed properly it will not work and that's it A SCAM THE DEALER CAN USE TO GET AN $800.00 bill from you and Chrysler doesn't care ( I did get some help after I scumbaged the hell out of them ) squeaky wheel gets the grease you know) a crack circuit board can't be fixed with software but software properly installed does work . Beware there are dealership service departments that are not honest. They just don't respect their work or you. Find a dealership that has good service department and honest mechanics their out there. Good luck

Note that *I* didn't specifically mention new software. Also, "bad technique" can be a cause of some of the problems.

Also, I don't post on every single thread that mentions the N23 recall. This is usually the one, because the age and size.

Apparently you CANNOT repair a crack in circuit board with a software upgrade. Who knew???

I have an 07 JGC Ltd with the 4.7 V8. Had N23 done May 2013. Noticed December 2013 that I was getting the Svc 4WD error, 4Lo and 4N were gone. Had a different dealer than the one that originally did the N23 re do the N23 in January 2014. 90 days later no errors, 4 LO works just fine now. The service manager happened to drive the same Jeep (same year and motor) that I have and insisted it must be done the right way.

This is what worked for me after getting the n23 recall and getting the dreaded service 4wd system error when I try put it in low.

1. Turned my car on (engine running) checked that the 4wd service message was still occurring when I activated the low 4wd)

2. turned my car off keys out. opened the bonnet.

3. Went to the fuse box under the bonnet took fuse labelled fdcm/ediff

4.Shut bonnet, got in my car, started it with the fuse out put it in drive, drove 2 meters forward then put it in reverse drove 2 meters backwards. (Be aware you will get the service 4wd light without pulling up the lever as you are driving)

5. Turned my car off keys out went to the bonnet put fuse back in shut bonnet

6. Started my car put it in drive got the car rolling just below 5 mph (as this makes it easier to slip into low 4wd read manual) placed it into neutral while rolling activated the low 4wd switch and it worked!

I have also done this, but without moving the car at all, and it was successful. Over two weeks ago, still working fine.

transfer case motor

My problem with the Jeep is not only will it not go into 4LO, I cant get the Neutral position ( so i can tow the jeep behind RV). The same error code as you all-4wd service- and the dealer says its the transfer case motor. The part number he gave me is for the transfer actuator motor. So Im glad I have found this blog regarding what you all have been putting up with for years!
