Yes, but isn't the computer causing the tcase issue? Perhaps I'm wrong?

Its not part of the recall, the recall is a software issue. I asked my dealership and they are not ready to do the recalls yet. I was hoping to get both done at the same time, Pooh well, at least i have a service plan that is covering this job.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

Vanna, what prize do we have for our lucky contestant today?

Have fun with the swap. I just did the differential fluids on the XK last weekend. I had the cover off the rear, but I just did the drain and fill on the front. I only mess with the front cover if the solenoid is bad.

I have spoken to Chrysler. The fdcm is faulty , my 2010 5.7 hemi overland is 3 months out of warranty. But we're trying to get $2600 cost covered by Chrysler. I am lucky the problem occured while I was home, instead of 350 km away for work. The cost of towing the vehicle would have been astronomical.

I just took my 2006 Grand Cherokee Overland in and they said the transfer case motor needed to be replaced. $550 for the part and with labor it ended up being like $945. They said the motor was backordered like a month and a half.

Was this code after you tried to put it in 4low? Did you have the safety update done?

Funny you should ask this question. I had the recall done and had never tried to put in in 4 wheel low, so just for the heck of it now that there is snow I tried and it did not go in low and warning came on dash. Is there a reason you ask?

I dare say that is BS. The code did not work in all likely hood so they want to put in an new part.

My is/was supposedly full of corrosion so they ordered a new part AFTER doing the re-programming. Why should a Jeep need a new part from corrosion? Seriously. The rest of it is just fine, or at least appears so.

Just why are all these transfer motors going bad now? Why are they on such a back order?

Look at the thread about N23 safety update. It's screwed up all out 4 low.

THE ACTUATOR MOTORS ARE NOT BAD.
We are loosing a tinny bit voltage at the actuator electrical connector.

As I commented on the other post about this. Are we supposed to solder the connection to prevent this? Then what when the actuator goes out?

However this is the most reasonable idea I've heard about this problem. It would explain why it's totally erratic and only a code clear is needed to fix it till the next time the FDCM sees a voltage drop.
