No worries, thanks for that. It's interesting that the diesels don't seem to have been recalled yet.

Hi all I have a 2012 GC Limited Diesel and guess what, I had a total alternator failure yesterday, all symptoms the same as the recall for the petrol models, lost all electrics and power steering, luckily was on an off ramp near my work. Jeep Customer Care advised that they may be recalling them in the USA and to keep receipts and a log of events. Getting it repaired at a 4x4 place next door to work. Battery also died and the mechanic advised that the fuses on the top of the battery were melted so something happened,the first sign of trouble was the battery light coming on for a few Ks then went off and then after about half an hour came back on and all the electrics started to shut down one by one.

So basically you couldnt tell if it was on the way out unless its apart like that.

Seems like a common replacement for that age and many have changed it at own will.

Is it really a fault as Jeep discribed? PS fluid spill onto the diodes??

Well Jeep is going again, $1237 later, but receipts kept, the main thing I was/am concerned about is what happens to the poor person that has this failure on the highway at 110kph , it is quite a feat to move these things with no power and no power steering, also no indicators or anything else electric, could be a very bad accident waiting to happen with this fault/ issue. Will be interesting to see how many more diesels are effected.
Also I would expect to get more than 78000 ks out of it before it failed. And no there were no fuses on the battery, dont know what he was on about.
