Default K17 Recall vent!

Gotta vent to people who can understand.... I've had my truck in twice for this damn recall and each time the computer to fix the problem magically goes down each time for this, WTF is the issue.... Anyone else gone through this? I'm about ready to just say F it and not have the recall done

The flash for the HVAC control head has to be downloaded into the wiTECH pod each time it's used so if there is a problem with their internet, the pod, computer or Chryslers server, the flash can't be performed. I do have to agree that two times is definately unusual.

Annoying, absolutely, something they can control, not at all.

i took my Ram in, had the spark plugs replaced, oil change, tires rotated after they took off & replaced all the wheel weights. i asked about the HVAC flash & i had my truck back in 3 hours total
They told me that everything had been done, everything seems to function ok, BUT, the Ram has way more power than the day i drove it off the lot for the first time, i looked at the old plugs & they look almost perfect. They must have found some power update that made the BIG difference, even my exhaust sounds better

I was told there are two different machines one is portable and cheaper to buy and doesn't connect to the net properly or cuts out and they have to do some waiting after loading it ?? But other dealers have a different more expensive machine that well works better....is why I switched to a different dealer, they could not starscan things half the time wanted me to come back----------50miles ya right. So I changed dealers, in the city around a mile away.
