Just finished taking my Commander and Grand Cherokee into the dealer to have the recalls done. My dealer is a 5 star service center.
Before and after the N23 updates for the 4WD transfer case program update I shifted into 4 low to test. The dealer has a large gravel lot right next to the service building so testing was easy. Everything went perfect. They also did the P73 recall. My Grand Cherokee has Q Track and the Commander has Q Drive and they said the P73 also had to be done on both - again everything went well.

The Ignition switch recall P41, went fine, there are no new keys. It is a new switch and lock unit but the old keys fit fine. It is now a push in and turn on the switch (on or off) but only a slight bother which I should get used to quickly. It turned just as easy as the old - just the push in added. It feels slightly like it is catching as you start to turn it but guess it's a safety thing.

Thanks for the info. Refresh my memory, what is the P73 ?

I also noticed the catching at first, but my key turn started to feel a lot better after about a week of break in. I got my N23 a few months ago and the ignition about a month later when they got parts. I ended up needing a new actuator after N23/P73 though. It had to be redone twice, then they wanted a new actuator, then I contacted Jeep and it ended up being covered after some disagreement over whether or not the actuator was related to the recall. Works great now. I got a skid plate to cover that precious actuator now that I know what they cost :)

Your Sig says '06 Commander and '05 GC, so I'm assuming your vehicles have the "Transponder Key".

Folks please tell us what key system you have when reporting about the Ignition Switch recall.

There has been several posts that folks with the FOBIK key system are getting two new FOBIK keys when the recall has been performed.

That could be very possible, cause there are two different key systems, one the old lock cylinder could be keyed for the existing key and nothing changed with the transponder interrogation system.

The FOBIK system, the interrogation antenna is in the Wireless Ignition Node (WIN) which is the socket you stick the FOBIK in and turn it to start/run the vehicle. I always thought the logic part was being performed by other modules down the line, but I may be wrong, a new WIN requires new keys be programmed to the vehicle.
