Haven't logged in for a while, but thought I'd drop by to share my recall issues too.
Here's a little background info on my Commander, and how I use it. It's a 2006 Limited. It now has about 99,000 miles on it. I maintain it meticulously, and have never had a mechanical failure. I use the 4lo about once every other week, more often during summer. It has always been 100% reliable up until this recall.
I have had my Commander into the dealership a total 4 times now. The first time, they did the recall flash, and the next day my 4lo stopped working and came up with the service 4x4 system error. Took it back in, and they said it was a bad actuator. They got the part, I took the Jeep back in, and they replaced it. The 4lo worked for a couple days, then the same code popped up again(c140f). I took it in yet again, and they said the reflash was wrong, and they redid it. That fixed it for about 3 more days, then the same code popped up again. I contacted Chrysler's recall hotline, and they basically told me that this was not related to the recall, and I would have to go pay the dealership to diagnose and fix the issue.
I just love how Chrysler now thinks something just magically broke since the recall service, and now I'm stuck holding the bill. I'll definitely be giving that other number a try, and giving them a piece of my mind. Hopefully they get this stuff straightened out soon.
