Just received my recall notice for the cruise control/software update. Wondering if anyone else has? 14 Journey. I scheduled an appointment with my dealer for this Monday. I’m Eager to see if this update will help with the Indecisive transmission...I’ve always Notticed it, never bothered me till I got my new Ram. With that 8 speed its annoyingly noticeable

I haven't had it done yet.  I'm waiting for an insurance claim against another driver who was towing an open rail trailer with a pile of gravel all over it that hit a bump in the road and sprayed rocks all over the front of my DJ :angry22:

 

From the description of the problem (electronic controlled throttle, cruise control, and transmission, PCM calls for torque and simultaneously has an electrical short causing a stuck and non-responsive throttle), it should be little more than a programming change in a specific procedure (if loss of signal, cancel automatic throttle control). I'm not an engineer, but I do have a college course background in computer programming.  Given that it is only a software update, this is a highly likely scenario for the fix.

Hi 2late4u,

No parts are required to complete the recall so need to go into the dealer. There will be a software update to the Powertrain Control Module. FCA plans to launch the update towards the end of this month.

Got my oil changed, TPMS thing replaced on the front passenger tire, and my recall done today before heading out on our first summer trip. I'll definitely use my Cruise Control so figured I better get it done before the trip. Took about an hour and might just be a mental thing, but the car feels better than before it went in. She must be happy with the work.

I would continue to use it.  The likelihood of a problem is actually very, very low.

It is very low likelihood, but by telling everyone note to use it, FCA will use that to deny liability if something does happen.  Besides, mine is brand new and I don't think I have even used the cruise yet.  If something is going to fail, it typically does very early (infant mortality) or after extended use, but not so much in between.

actually yrs ago with my caravan i had a episode with a cruise control not disengaging after stepping on the brake pedal was kind of scary as of course i was coming up behind another car but mine disengaged by simply shutting off the unit whit the cancel button. I had just that day picked the van up from the dealership where they had worked on the transmission and after looking at the van they latter called and said the van is fixed that it was the brake pedal switch that had gone bad, i kept asking about it as i had just picked it up from the dealership and that it was working before they had it and it wasn't after they gave it back to me ,they kept saying they didnt do anything to have damaged the brake switch disconnect but i had a hard time coming around to their way of thinking.  But is was a scary thing to happen and was lucky to have been able to just hit the cancel button.......
