This is a discussion on Settlement Approved within the FCA/EPA 3.0L Diesel Settlement and AEM (Approved Emissions Modification) forums, part of the FCA/EPA 3.0L Diesel Settlement and AEM category; Originally Posted by howie12 I submitted my claim online today. You need to have a scanner to scan various documents if you are doing it ...
Highlighted some points of interest below:
The Approved Emissions Modification will be available 15 days after the Court grants final approval of the Settlements. The earliest date the AEM will be available is May 18, 2019
If you altered the emission control system in your vehicle, you may still be eligible to receive the AEM and may still be a Class Member eligible for compensation under the Class Action Agreement. However, if the AEM cannot be installed on your vehicle because of alterations to the emission control system or if the alterations are likely to substantially affect the operation of your vehicle with the AEM installed, you may not be eligible for the AEM or compensation under the Class Action Agreement unless you first reverse the alterations, at your own expense.
The Extended Warranty also provides buyback protections to any Eligible Owner or Eligible Lessee of an Eligible Vehicle that receives the AEM in the event that, during the 18 months or 18,000 miles (whichever comes first) following the completion of the AEM (the “Remedy Period”), Fiat Chrysler fails to repair or remedy a confirmed failure or malfunction covered by the Extended Warranty and associated with the AEM (a “Warrantable Failure”) after the Eligible Owner or Eligible Lessee physically presents the Eligible Vehicle to a Fiat Chrysler Authorized Dealer for repair of the Warrantable Failure; and (1) the Warrantable Failure is unable to be remedied after making four separate service visits to the same Fiat Chrysler Authorized Dealer for the same Warrantable Failure during the Remedy Period; or (2) the Eligible Vehicle with the Warrantable Failure is out-of-service due to the Warrantable Failure for a cumulative total of thirty (30) days during the Remedy Period, not including any days when the Dealer returns or otherwise tenders the Eligible Vehicle to the customer while the Fiat Chrysler Authorized Dealer awaits necessary parts and such vehicle remains Operable.
The #2 buyback provision of 30 days cumulative is very likely and was not aware from the January info release.
Also, a simple GDE tune with truck 100% intact will not be an issue...and I suspect dealer will simply flash w/o looking for it. It is the deleted truck that will be rejected given the EGR/DPF is not present therefore the update can not be added.
“Eligible Former Owner” means a Person who purchased or otherwise acquired ownership of an Eligible Vehicle on or before January 12, 2017, and then sold or otherwise transferred ownership of such vehicle after that date but on or before January 10, 2019,"
“Thank you, taking a look over the information I am showing this is still being worked on I would recommend chatting back in later next week for another update Emissions Modifications. Letter will be mailed out as well.“
I still love my truck but incrementally less each time it throws a CEL!!
Perhaps there is a terminology issue. You must submit paperwork via mail or electronically online. I referred to that as my claim. They review the paperwork and determine if you are eligible and if it is complete. Once approved you get some kind of authorization to go to the dealer to get the work done. Once the dealer certifies the work is done you get a check. (You may have to mail the completed paperwork in for the check but my memory is the dealer does it.
No processing of the claim documents will start until after the deal is approved which was May 3.
After submitting the claim I got the following email almost immediately

SO far it seems pretty easy and well organized.
Supporting documentation required to complete your claim may include:
Current vehicle registration (if applicable);
Your driver’s license or other government-issued identification;
Dates you owned or leased the Eligible Vehicle; and
Sufficient proof of current or former ownership or lease (as applicable).
Will they accept current and former vehicle license registration forms?
