Yes. You need to take it to a Dodge dealership. They will reprogram the TCU with a software update. It only takes a few minutes. Check first though. There was a recall for this problem and you might get them to perform this service free. It's a proprietary software and not available to the general public or a garage.

N23 and P73 recall FDCM reprogramming. A few cars put themselves in neutral when started with remote start and a recall was issued. N23 reprogrammed the system of the FDCM. P73 checked the reprogramming because after N23 many were showing Service 4wd System and not shifting into 4lo. My 2008 jeep gc overland 5.7 hemi is now doing it and when I called Chrysler Jeep they informed me that since my vehicle has been serviced for both N23 and P73 it's a crap shoot as to if it will be covered at a dealership for a fix and may be on my dime. Hence... a few people didn't place their parking brake on and remote started their vehicle. Something failed on their vehicles and now we are all suffering from the reflash "fix". Hoping to front the diagnostic cost soon at the stealership.... uugh!

Sooooo.... had "service 4wd system" alert and then one day my 2008 jeep gc 5.7 hemi wouldn't start. Took it in and it was a fuse that controls both. NOTE: FUSE WAS NOT FRIED! It just tested as having bad resistance. They replaced the fuse and the error for "service 4wd system" has been gone since and she starts everytime! CHECK RESISTANCE ON THE FUSE!!!!
