It was never "resolved". I own a 2014 FDII with the CVT and had the trans overtemp light with less than 30K. I had the fluid and filters changed at the dealership and the problem has not recurred for me. They also said they updated the PCM software when they did the fluid and filter change. When I had the issue driving at highway speeds for more than 20 minutes with an outside air temp over 80 degrees F, would result in the trans overheating.
A lot of people have had issues with the CVT. And it is completely a Chrysler problem. The same CVT is used in Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Kia, Nissan, and some Subaru models without issues. Chrysler has from the start refused to accept any liability for their programming and implementation and likely never will. It's unfortunate, because the Patriot is an almost perfect vehicle in every other respect.
