Correct. I'm not the only one on here. I'm having the code read this afternoon and I'll post what they say. Apparently resetting it helped one user, but I'm skeptical.

I have my appointment setup for Wednesday morning. I figure I'd rather have this recall done now before winter hits and I might need 4LO (if I have the same issue as R32R1).

R32r1- I called the recall center fri after my issues began. They said it shouldnt be a factor. Prior to doing the recall I retd the jeep to stock settings (superchips) but forgot to return to the factory tire size. After *****ing with chrysler and the dealer I pulled out the tuner. After resetting the tire size I had 4 lo again. I then reinstalled the 89 tune and appropriate tire size. All is well. ANYONE that runs a tuner should reset to factorycsettings prior to a dealer flash.


The code should be c140f transfer case sensor erratic performance... resetting the code did nothing for me. I came right back after pulling the t lever.

Yes, after getting my GC scanned, I was also getting the C140F code. Reset it and nothing happened. I don't have a tuner, but I'm running 31's. That shouldn't be a factor at all, other than an incorrect speedometer. My jeep still thinks its OEM tires.

I'm skeptical that replacing the T-Case motor will do anything. I ran 4LO just last week and it was fine...checked the harness and it's clean as a whistle. That code is for a sensor inside of that motor. The only way to replace the sensor is to replace the entire motor. Looking like $193/remanufactured.

I just ordered the T-Case motor to rule that out. I should have it within a couple of days and post back if the problem persists. ($188/ Shipped from Rock Auto- best price I found).

I took my Commander in last Tuesday. After the reprograming, a few days later I tried to shift into 4X4 Lo, and the transfer case wouldn't budge, also gave me a "service 4x4 system" message. I took it back to the dealer, and first they tried to tell me that the transfer case actuator was bad, but it had nothing to do with the recall. I had read up on the recall, so I already knew that it was in fact all about the transfer case. The dealer checked with Chrysler, and lo and behold there are things that must be disconnected before reprograming. They had to do the reprogram over with certain components disconnected. That fixed the problem. They also gave me a wash, detail, and filled up the gas tank for all of my trouble!

Read the previous post. I had the same problem. It is caused by the dealer not following the correct proceedure during the reprogram.

this frightens me, I want some other poor suckers to go first and get the recall, though being this time of year few folks would test 4 low until months from now and get the error!

Well I have a habit of shifting into 4 Lo every Saturday morning, rolling back a few yards, then shifting back to high. That is why I caught it fairly quickly. What frightens me is the dealer wanting to charge me $600.00 for a new T-Case actuator. If I hadn't been fairly knowledgable about the recall I would have paid for a new Actuator, and it still wouldn't have fixed it. I am pretty sure they were supposed to disconnect the final drive shift module prior to the reprogram, which they did the second time.

^ and that's exactly why I'd like to get the recall done now and have time to make sure everything is operating as intended, not when the snow flies or when I'm on a trail.

Glad I waited. I did check the operation of 4Lo today. The transfer case on my Heep goes in-and-out without codes. We'll have that discussion when the Service Manager & I talk so we both understand the correct procedure. In fairness, the Service Manager and the technician who does this work are both top-notch, but I'll ask anyway to preclude a return trip. [My dealer makes up for all of other bad dealer service depts reported elsewhere.]

Maybe a good idea would be to video putting the Jeep in 4LO before taking it in, just to prove it works. Also, for me, I'll check the 4LO before leaving the dealer lot, after all I have read here.

I'm scheduled for 8:30 tomorrow morning. I'll be bringing out the service manager and explaining the potential problem and showing him my 4 Low works. When I pulled in the dealership this morning to see if I could get it done I made sure to engage the 4 Low. It all worked. Tomorrow will be interesting for sure.

I'm a chrysler dodge jeep tech and all it is is a flash to the FDCM (Final Drive Control Module) and w/ the new software supposedly it will avoid the possibility of this incident occurring.
