I was going to get my wiper washer motor fixed under warranty than ran out 2 weeks ago at my dealer but it worries me that these nuff nuffs will do the recal while its in there.

I would rather save up and pay for the new part and have my mechanic fix it than risk handing my car to some spud and hope they dont stuff it..

Crazy isnt it..

I am also having problems with our 2014 Grand Cherokee. It was running beautifullybefore the S49 Update. We now have the fan roaring at extremely high revs for no apparent reason, fuel usag has gone from low 8.7lt/100km to 9.8lt/100km and several times the gear shift wouldn't disengage from park to reverse. Does anyone know if the troublesome update can be uninstalled by resetting the computer?

No mate, resetting won't do anything. The previous parameters before the shitty update need to be uploaded into the ECU. This is like the BIOS/operating system on a computer if you like and is stored on ROM chips. You would think the stealerships would have offered to do this once it was clear this update was a load of shit.....but no, they chose to instead damage perfectly good cars.

My MY15 Overlander had the S91 patch loaded yesterday.

Perhaps it was the 40 degree day - still had the roaring fans and a few additional electrical foibles.

Have not checked fuel usage however, expect it to remain higher than previous.

Digital radio remains stuffed with no fix or replacement in sight.
Wondering if all these foibles are likely to affect the Quadra0drive operation.

Dealership tells me the transmission update was a safety issue and the install is mandatory.

Like the S43 update in the WH, how to stuff up a perfectly functioning vehicle in one foul swoop.

Not happy.

Had my patch done on the patch this morning. You reckon they would have got it right the first time. Only driven it from the stealers to home, so didn't notice any difference.
My economy didn't alter on the first patch.

Will post again if something unusual happens.

Cheers, Craig
