Went in for trans harness recall this morning.

I've been delaying doing that recall until I needed my oil changed so today was the day.

Expected them to test the resistance and tell me all is well. When I pulled in and he plugged into the OBD2 he said "you need 7 flashes".

I asked for what and he rattled off a bunch of acronyms some of which I recognized. He did them all, except the Uconnect one as I have RAX and didn't want them messing with it, and away I went 3 hours later.

Jeep seems to drive fine but I only went the 4 miles from dealership to home so too early to tell. It didn't explode so that's good I supposed.

I had to get out of there as I had a lunch date so I don't have the paperwork. He said he would mail it as their printer was slow and he didn't want me waiting an longer than I already had.

This was the 3rd update I've done. I did the Uconnect anti-hack software and the airbag recall. I've never had any trans updates or anything else for that matter.

2015 TH, built Nov 8 2014.

I'll update with all they did when the paperwork arrives but so far so good.

Eagerly awaiting the info and longer term report....I've avoided all updates on my 2014 early build.

Yeah I was very afraid as I've never had any apply to my TH before and I've heard of issues cropping up after people had stuff done.

I assume it will be mid next week when the paper work arrives. When it does, I'll post up all they did.

While I was checking in, a co-worker who also has a Cherokee ('14) was there too and he also had 7 flashes to do.

On my 2014 Limited:
I had one TCM/PCM flash in May of 2015 and that was the only required one to date! That's 3 years with only one flash.
That was until the transmission harness flash last fall. That also went without any issues. In fact it may have even helped a bit.
Other than losing 2nd gear with the 2015 flash the transmission is very smooth to the point of not even feeling the shifting.
With a Max Care Life I am not really concerned going forward, especially with the transmission, as $100 is going to be the Max Cost.
As much as I like this Cherokee I may actually keep it longer as it is performing so good and is so much fun to drive even after 3 years.
Now there have been a few non transmission flashes like the air bags and some recalls but that is it.

Well...BOO!!

The only information on the printout they mailed me says '
'Perform S55 recall (3 total)'
'Perform all flash updates (4 total)'

He told me there were 7 due and I said don't do the Uconnect so I guess they did them all but I don't know the details.

Wow..very thorough dealer service department!

Either they don't know what they did or maybe they came up on a list but weren't actually completed?

Yep. In the beginning when trans TSBs were coming every two weeks it seemed, lots of folks were discussing the issues they had afterwards. Since then, I have had no updates with exception of doing the uConnect update they sent on the USB drive.

I am a firm believer in "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"

I never 'lost' 2nd gear like many, never had to go through a 'relearn' again, etc

Go to the Jeep.com web site, owners tab, recall information, put in your VIN and you can see all of the recalls and TSBs done to your TH. See if this works for you. The next time you go to the dealer ask to see the VIP report, they can't give you a copy but you can look at it and take notes.

At Jeep.com/Owners/Recall Information, mine shows recalls and campaigns, no regular TSBs.
