Grand Cherokee (International Markets)
This bulletin applies to all vehicles equipped with a 3.7L engine (Sales code EKG) and a NAGI transmission (Sales code DGJ).
The customer may experience a MIL illumination (4WD or AWD models only) with one or both of the following Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC)
when accelerating on slick road surface and experiencing momentary wheel slippage:
1. P0730 - Incorrect Gear Ratio
2. P0731 - Gear Ratio Error in 1st
This Software also gives a fuel economy improvement for all WK/WH/XK vehicles. The software now has a interactive fuel shut off strategy and the
optimization of TCM shift and torque converter clutch lock up/unlock schedules. This improvement could be as much as +0.5 MPG in city driving
conditions. Not all vehicles will realize a improvement due to driving habits and optional equipment that may have been installed on the vehicle.
Using a Scan Tool (wiTECH(TM)) with the appropriate Diagnostic Procedures available in TechCONNECT, verify all engine and transmission Systems
are functioning as designed. If DTC's are present other then the one's listed above record them on the repair order and repair as necessary before
proceeding further with this bulletin.
If the above condition is present, perform the Repair Procedure.
