A crucial repair to Anton Yelchin’s Jeep — that ultimately might have saved his life — was made available to the public just days before his death … TMZ has learned.

As we’ve told you … Anton’s Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo was tagged for a recall in May. But we’re told the manufacturer, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, did not have an actual repair for the e-shifter problem at that point.

Sources with direct knowledge of the recall process tell us some Jeep dealerships just got the “fix” last week — and according to documents, ALL dealerships should have it by August.

We’re told the fix is a software download to install an “auto park” feature — which will automatically shift the vehicle into PARK as soon as the driver’s door opens.

There’s no official determination yet on what happened to Anton, but as we’ve reported … his Jeep was running, and in neutral, when police found his body pinned
