I understand that no one has had a vehicle for a year since the recall - I was just using the time frame of a year to make a point. I have put nearly 3000 miles and almost 3 weeks on it and no issues since the reflash - at what point do I consider it "good"? Should I still be looking for a pre-update FDCM? Should I wait it out a little longer and see if I have any issues? At what point is it "good"?
I got the recall done on 10/23, it was able to go into neutral to pull behind an RV on 11/13 and got the Service 4WD System message on 12/19. Went back to dealer on 12/26 and they installed the new actuator on 2/20. I'm hopeful but there's no way I won't have backup going forward.
No one has a crystal ball or can foresee the future.
You can consider the issue fixed when your happy.
The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled people make poor decisions and reach erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the meta-cognitive ability to realize their mistakes.

Why would it take a day for one person, a week for another, and months for another for the code to be triggered and therefore the loss of 4Low? It seems to me, and I admit I know very little about this stuff, that it would be either triggered by a certain amount of miles or by something that would cause a voltage surge, would it not?
jjarvis - but for me - I have not been charged anything and the 4Low has been engaging every day for almost 3 weeks. I may still buy a pre-flashed FDCM just in case - but I am tending to think that after 3 weeks and almost 2000 miles of testing it daily and using it several times that it is likely fixed at no cost to me.
The only way to know it's fixed is: 1. Jeep admits and then identifies a difference between the current fix method and and a new fix method and then 2. people that have it done qualify that they no longer experience an issue for over a year. I won't do the recall until those 2 things happened and I am not holding my breath. Look at what GM did on the recent ignition issue, years with no notification, people died, still nothing, then finally it reached over 1.3+ million recalled vehicles. Put it all in perspective and you will realize what extent companies will or won't go to.

Oh - I agree, if I had not had the recall done - I would not do it either - obviously there is some issue with it - whether it is techs not doing it right the first time, whether it is the voltage problem, or whether it is the least likely - that it is some other issue that is now being detected.
