https://www.autoblog.com/2024/02/21/jeep-recalls-nearly-200000-plug-in-hybrids-over-defroster-issue/#:~:text=Jeep has issued a safety,that disables the windshield defroster.

Jeep has issued a safety recall that applies to nearly 200,000 units of the Wrangler 4xe and Grand Cherokee 4xe plug-in hybrid SUVs built between the 2021 and 2024 model years. The recalled vehicles feature a software-related problem that disables the windshield defroster.
Assigned recall number 24V-111 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the recall includes the following SUVs:
  • 139,318 units of the 2021 to 2024 Wrangler 4xe built between September 2, 2020, and August 24, 2023.
    • 59,825 units of the 2022 to 2024 Grand Cherokee 4xe built between July 23, 2021, and December 5, 2023.
That's a total of 199,143 vehicles, and Jeep estimates that the problem is present in 100% of the recalled cars. While the problem is linked to the windshield defroster, the company told NHTSA that its source lies in the hybrid control processor (HCP), which was incorrectly programmed at the factory. As a result, the software can disable the windshield defroster.

Shows no recalls.

It could still show up. Check again in a few weeks. When the B9A recall was issued, my vehicle didn’t originally show up either, but several week later it.

Just called mine yesterday to see when they could get me in for the HPFP on my diesel. Soonest available was April 10th. :computerrage:

I'm guessing they're backlogged with all the 4xe work going on. Last time I was in with my previous JL they had a literal line of 4xe's in the service lot waiting for hybrid techs to free up.

Hang tight.

Per moparinsiders, notices will be sent out to owners and dealers on April 5th. If it’s anything like B9A, they might not have a fix immediately available.

On the bright side, by April 5th, most of the country won’t need defrosters anyway. 🤣🤣

Still need them in the burbs of Philly. We get some hard morning frosts here in early April. You are being facetious, I know.

Interesting, I’ve long suspected a ghost in the programming of my HVAC system, because it doesn’t seem like it functions correctly, but it seems like on automatic it ONLY blows out the defroster. Like I’ll get halfway through a 30 mile drive and suddenly realize “wait why am I still cold?” Maybe mine will get this recall too (collect ‘em all!) and it will cause them to fix it. Right in time for me to turn it in lol.

At least it doesn't have the potential to GRENADE like the HPFP!
Which was recalled October 2022! And no part for over a year! ;(
