Service 4 wheel drive system message?

Guys

I have a 2006 Grand 5.7 Hemi 27,000 miles on clock. had it serviced by jeep dealer 2000 miles ago.

Question:
'Service 4 wheel drive system' flashed up on the dash twice then went off again ...can anyone advise what this means ...what is there to service? I cant find any info in the handbook regarding service intervals for the 4 wheel drive system ...its just has an intermediate 3rd service 2000 miles ago

If you pull the code, we can look up the specific DTC and possibly help you diagnose it. Fill out your profile so we know if you have QT-II, QD-II, etc for a 4WD system.

Also, please tell us what the dealer did in his service (from your service receipt).

I have the '08 FSM, but the DTC's are probably no different.

Jeep Grand Cherokee WK - Technical Service Bulletins

Look there for a TSB related to this, i know there was at some point.

To get the code, turn the key on (Not ignition) - off 3 times, it should display. you might have to try it a couple times and try googling how to do it because it may give a few more tips.

It has the Quatra Drive 11 system

The last service was just oil & filters ...they say the next one is expensive as the plugs need changing too

I have searched & cannot find a method of obtaining the fault codes without a diagnostic scanner ...unless someone can advise different. the turn key 3 times method didnt seem to work

AutoZone (or equivalent) will usually pull them for no charge. Some codes are down on the Chrysler priority list, so may not show on their reader. They won't clear any codes that are displayed, but at least you'll have the code number to work with.
Usually takes several times to learn the "key dance" as others have named it. [Make sure driver's door is closed when you do it.]

Curious as to what all they are trying to sell you at 30K miles. Copper core spark plugs, tire rotation, 7-qts of 5W-20 oil, an oil filter, & an air filter element are certainly required by the Jeep maintenance schedule.

OK. You just passed any limit of knowledge I have with LPG on a passenger car. Sorry. My WK FSM does not even address it.
Only experience I have with propane (on an internal combustion engine) is on a 4-cyl. forklift.

Get the codes from an auto parts store before you shut it down, while they are still active. If that fails, go to step 2 below.

Here's the last idea: Get the dealer to check the code for free when you have the 30K service done.

Mine said the same thing in addition to "Service electric brake system"

I have a scanner, but the 3-key turn trick also said the same thing, U1416, or bad wheel speed sensor. Yours might be different, but its worth a look.

3-key turn trick - shut the doors and turn the key from off to on (not off to start) 3 times, waiting 1 second in between each set and the dash should say "DTC report" followed by the error code.

Once you figure out the timing of it, it is quite handy. I have the added benefit of my radar detector - its boot up time to first beep is exactly one second so once I hear that beep, I turn it off, then back on - repeat.
