Jeep Recalls: Grand Cherokee L, Wrangler 4XE
Jeep Grand Cherokee Ls face another recall — headlights might stop working due to an incomplete software update. This could cause one or both lights to stop working.
Owners of the affected vehicles — a little under 37,000 in the U.S. and around 1,300 in Canada — will start being notified near the end of January 2022. At that point, owners can head to the dealer for the fix. Otherwise, owners can call FCA/Jeep/Stellantis customer service at 800-853-1403. The recall number is Y72.
Meanwhile, the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4XE is also facing a recall due to a software update. In this case, an update gone wrong has caused the odometer’s mileage to disappear after 13,342 miles. About 2,900 vehicles have been affected.
Again, notifications go out at the end of January 2022.
"headlights might stop working due to an incomplete software update." REALLY? *warning, post holiday rage incoming* As a representative of the IT community I hereby implore the automotive industry: STOP TRYING TO DEVELOP SOFTWARE, YOU SUCK AT IT AND YOUR PRODUCTS WILL NEVER BE SUITABLE CANDIDATES FOR PURE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT DUE TO THEIR COST AND COMPLEXITY. GO BACK TO WATERFALL WITH LIMITED PLATFORM CHANGES! LIMITED AS IN THE CAR GETS FLASHED AT THE DEALER ONCE OR TWICE IN ITS LIFESPAN. Why is it Bosch can write firmware in the mid 80s (LH 2.4) for RWD Volvos which worked for decades and *still works* BUT YOU CLOWNS CAN'T KEEP HEADLIGHTS WORKING? HOW ARE YOU STILL EMPLOYED AND/OR NOT IN JAIL FOR FAILING TO KEEP EVEN BASIC SAFETY SYSTEMS FUNCTIONAL? NEXT ARE YOU GOING TO RANDOMLY START DETONATING AIR BAGS BECAUSE YOU FORGOT TO CARRY THE ONE? Not sure when it started, but devolution has clearly been the order of the 21st Century to this point.
No headlights? It's a Jeep thing. You wouldn't understand.
Thats funny.... 2000 Grand Cherokee 2005 Grand Cherokee 2007 Commander 2010 Wrangler 2012 wrangler 2016 Wrangler 2019 Cherokee Only unscheduled issue I've ever had was when the 2016 ate the battery at 28k miles. So for all of you claiming "Chrysler quality" or "Jeep thing", put your list up against mine. Even the 9speed in my Cherokee has been flawless. As soon as Jeep turns the Friends and Family discount back on for the the JKU I'll be ordering a 4xe.
Jeeps probably turn off one light when you signal to turn anyway, so why worry. :)
