I took my 2014 EcoDiesel to dealer today for the W58 recall and was told they had seen the upgrade take out the vehicle’s ECU in some instances. I respectfully declined the “fix” and drove home. Anyone else heard this?
Pardon my ignorance, but what is an ECU? Engine Control Unit?? Is that the engine computer?

UPDATE: The dealership has had my 2015 Ram for this whole week now. AFTER finally performing a DIAGNOSTIC on my truck at the end of business on Wednesday, the dealership told me that the issue with the message I had was that a DEF injector was bad and had to be replaced along with the fuel filter. My fuel filter was replaced back in February right before all the emissions recalls were performed. I asked the service advisor why I needed a new fuel filter if I just had one installed 6 months ago. She said when the injector goes bad it "gunks everything up". My question is, if the fuel filter filters the fuel going into the engine and the DEF is supposed to suppress the emissions going through the exhaust system that comes out of the engine, how does DEF effect the fuel filter?? I asked if this issue could be a result of the emissions work that was performed earlier this year and if the cost of this repair ($1000+) would be covered. Unfortunately I have been informed that this is not an issue that is covered and the repair costs come out of my wallet.

Summary
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2014-2018 Ram 1500 and 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with 3.0L diesel engines. The crankshaft position sensor tone wheel may delaminate causing the engine to lose its ability to synchronize the fuel injector pulses and cam shaft timing, possibly resulting in an engine stall.

Remedy
FCA US will notify owners, and dealers will update the powertrain control module software to maintain vehicle propulsion by reading the camshaft position signal in the event that the crankshaft position signal is lost, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 2, 2020. Owners may contact FCA US customer service at 1-800-853-2002. FCA US's number for this recall is W58.

Notes
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safe rcar.gov.

You should contact Mopar Car Care and ask for reimbursement if you paid for a recall item.
