Jeep Tracking Order Status Codes, What Do They Mean?

The Jeep tracking system utilizes a series of order status codes to provide customers with detailed insights into the production and shipping stages of their vehicles. These codes serve as a comprehensive guide to understanding the progress of a Jeep order from the initial placement to the final delivery.

The order codes, ranging from BA to ZA, denote various stages in the ordering process, such as new order creation, fleet department review, special equipment processing, and order cancellation.

The scheduled order codes, including C, D, and D1, offer information about the firmness of the order, whether the dealer has the necessary allocation and parts availability, and the gateline schedule indicating that the vehicle is scheduled to be built. Subsequently, assembly line codes (E, F, G) signify the progression through key manufacturing stages, encompassing the frame, paint, and trim processes.

Assembly completion is indicated by codes I, J, JB, JE, JS, and KZ, reflecting various stages from building completion to shipment release. The detailed shipping status codes (KZ L to KZ Y2) offer a comprehensive overview of the vehicle’s journey post-assembly.

Jeep Tracking Order Status Codes, What Do They Mean?

These codes cover various aspects such as rail departures and arrivals, delays, invoicing, and quality audits. Notably, KZ X indicates that the vehicle has been delivered to the dealer, marking the final stage in the process.

Understanding the status definitions (B, C, D, D1, D2, E, F, G, I, JB, JS, KZ) is crucial for interpreting the meaning behind each code. For instance, a “C” status implies that the order is “sub firm,” indicating that the plant can see the order but is not fully committed to building it due to potential parts availability issues. On the other hand, a “D1” status signifies that the date is set for the vehicle to be built.

Status DefinitionsMeaning
BYour order exists but isn’t fully confirmed yet. The plant doesn’t know about it yet. Systems are checking the order to ensure it’s valid in terms of sales codes, Finance is checking to make sure the dealer has all their ducks in a row, etc.
CYour order is “sub firm”. The plant can see the order at this point but it’s not fully committed to building as the supplier may or may not be able to get parts to the plant to build the vehicle.
DFirm order. Your order now has a name instead of a number: A VIN! Materials should have been ordered by this point if all goes well, you should have a vehicle.
D1The date is set for your vehicle to be built. The plant knows when it should have parts sequenced for building and it should start to be built within 48 hours of the date set.
D2It’s going to be built. The computers are being programmed, materials are being sequenced, and framing is about to occur.
EFrame. Metal is welded together to form the body and frame. The body is inspected at the end of this step to ensure it’s within tolerances.
FPaint. The metal is coated, primed, sprayed, clear-coated, polished, inspected, and hand-finished if necessary.
GTrim. The engine is installed in the chassis, the interior is installed, and the chassis is mated to the body. At the end of this step.
IInspection. Your vehicle goes through a battery of shakedown tests and measurements are taken to ensure the vehicle looks and performs as expected.
JBBody Vendor. The vehicle is sent off-site to have a spray liner put in, steps, etc.
JSStorage. Some of you call this “Prison”. I like to think of it as QA trying to ensure you get what you expected. Typically if something happens or is found in the I step (or even a previous step), it goes here to get checked and fixed. A panel looks off-color, a part on your vehicle was in the same batch as a bunch of failed parts, the light doesn’t turn on, etc will all cause the vehicle to get sent here for a detailed inspection and fix. Another reason it can end up here is either the dealer has asked to have the vehicle delayed (it has a full lot and can only handle so many) or it has a special event coming up. Typically that isn’t done on a sold order. It can also end up here at the start of a model year where production is ramping up but the vehicle has not to be released (or certified) for shipment.
KZShipment. The vehicle is ready to be shipped. The dealer is actually charged for the vehicle. As you all know, this can be a source of delay. Typically you see me put two statuses here: Awaiting Shipment and “Staged for Shipment”. The first means it is in the general shipping yard waiting to be pulled to be put on a truck and/or train. The second means it has been pulled to be put on a truck and/or train but it hasn’t actually got on the truck or train yet. There are a ton of sub statuses here to track the status of the vehicle as it makes its way through the shipping system. KZX is the only one that you really care about as that means it was delivered to the dealer.

In summary, decoding the Jeep tracking order status codes provides customers with a detailed roadmap of their vehicle’s journey from order creation to delivery. It offers transparency into the manufacturing and shipping processes, allowing customers to anticipate delivery timelines more accurately.
