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.
