And what happens if I find an un-edited FDCM? Need reprogramming or anything?

There is an update but its not a recall.
A second hand FDCM is just plug & play. Then never let a dealer anywhere near your jeep while the un-flashed FDCM is installed.

I am moving these posts to the N23 section.

They sorted it out last year, the n23 update fried the control module actuator, causing no low range, it took me a lot of months 14 to be exact? to get jeep at penrith to fix it, as they did the update, have the knowledge with you so they cannot just say it's a coincidence? Jeep dealers can be very shifty, they even part swapped my glow plug module out while they had my jeep. Once again learn your car, when I got it back low range was working they replaced the fried actuator and uploaded new update, low range now works, but when I got my car back, it struggled to start, but as the weather got warmer it started easy. Until winter came along, I bought a new glow plug control module and replaced the old one, this was when I noticed mine had been taken out and a old model module installed? Yep part swapping is still going on???

Interrsting you mention "glowplugs". I got a code on my iobd2 stating glowplug fault. Maybe it's my module? Interesting. Some mornings it turns over a few times compared to others. Will keep an eye on the starting. Strange how they swapped it out.. they put a new part in at least or from a used vehicle? Thanks for the heads up.

Cheers for the link.
Just wondering if you got a reply?
Is the P73 update applicable here, or only in the USA?
Should we have to pay to have it checked out/reprogrammed?
Last time i asked my local dealer they wanted $100 just to diagnose the problem!!.
I left it alone till the next service and they then did something 'free' which fixed it, at least temporarily ( I haven't tried low range for a while, so dunno if its working or not!)

Yes the P73 is applicable here in Oz, but the actual P73 is not an updated software fix. It is a letter to Chrysler that the N23 must be performed exactly as per the Chrysler Service Bulletin 21-022-14 REV. A, dated July 29, 2014.
I had my N23 done to the letter of the Chrysler Service Bulletin 21-022-14 REV. A, dated July 29, 2014, and I watched and made sure they did it step by step exactly as the update says.

To clarify. The P73 was a customer service notice to have the N23 recall done so are the same thing. You do not need to have P73 done if your 4low is working properly.

Its been well over a year now and I still have 4low and have not had any problems (touch wood).
I still have my pre-N23 FDCM with me everywhere I go though.

Default Low range fault

I bought an 07 build, MY 08 CRD. When I looked at the car a Service 4 WD fault came up. The owner had the car serviced and when I collected it went into low and drove OK. A few day later fault came back. Spoke to Northstar after checking outstanding recalls and they did the P73 and ingition switch change. Straight after no problems. Couple of week on still working.
Nice to have a newignition switch and two new remotes for free, esppecially as one of mine was brocken.
