Summary of Complaint

MY RHD JEEP WRANGLER HAS EXPERIENCED A FAILURE IN THE PASSENGER RESTRAINT SYSTEM. THE AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT CAME ON RANDOMLY. THE DEALERSHIP REPAIRED THE PROBLEM BY REPLACING THE CLOCK SPRING IN THE STEERING COLUMN. LOOKING INTO IT FURTHER ON VARIOUS ONLINE FORUMS, I HAVE FOUND THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM FOR JEEPS. UNFORTUNATELY, WHEN THE LIGHT IS ON, THE SYSTEM IS NON-FUNCTIONAL AND LEAVES THE PASSENGERS WITHOUT THE BENEFIT OF THE AIR BAGS. *TR

Summary of Complaint

This has happened on more than 1 occasion. Driving on the highway and I lose power, the Jeep slows way down, the accelerator pedal is dead, and the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) light comes on. It does the same thing driving in town. Sometimes you can turn the vehicle off, wait a couple minutes, start it back up and it will be ok for a little bit. Sometimes it won’t. I have replaced some parts, read forums, communicated with a dealer service department and it doesn’t sound like there is a “fix” for this. This is very dangerous and someone could get seriously injured or killed.

Summary of Complaint

My Jeep just intermittently started the crank no start issue and gave code PO5013, incorrect immobilizer key. After extensive research I have found many Jeep owners to have this same problem and also found that Chrysler has confirmed it is a built in problem. After taking my Jeep to to dealer and having my keys checked along with the starter and ignition cylinder lock it is the (WCM) wireless control module that is the culprit of the crank but no start issue. This is an extremely unsafe problem due to my vehicle shutting down while driving on top of the other various problems the wcm has caused. Directions say to reset the WCM by pulling the IOD fuse for 30 seconds and then replacing however this method no longer works.

Summary of Complaint

On 07/16/2021 at approximately 1600 hundred the smoke detectors in the house began alarming. I immediately noticed smoke coming from the garage. After getting my 6 year old son safely out of the house I immediately called 911. The fire department arrived and took care of the situation. The entire engine compartment was burnt. Before all of this we arrived at the house and parked in the garage. Only 5 minutes went by between parking the Jeep and calling 911. During operation of the vehicle that day there was no indication of any issues. The Fire Inspector preformed his investigation. As of now I have not received the incident report. Once I do I will supply it. I am waiting to hear from the insurance company regarding when an adjuster will view the Jeep. Thank you.

Summary of Complaint

THE DEFROST ON A JEEP WRANGLER IS VERY INEFFECTIVE AND POORLY DESIGNED. THE ONLY BLOWER FOR THE DEFROST IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WINDOW CAUSING THE SIDES OF THE FRONT WINDSHIELD TO SEVERELY FREEZE UP AND BECOME IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE OUT OF DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER SUCH AS FOG, SLEET OR SNOW. BASICALLY ANY TYPE OF PRECIPITATION DURING WEATHER THAT IS BELOW FREEZING WILL CAUSE THIS WHICH RESULTS IN A SEVERE INABILITY TO SEE OUT OF THE WINDSHIELD WHICH IS A HUGE SAFETY ISSUE WHEN DRIVING IN INCLEMENT WEATHER. THIS HAPPENS WHEN DRIVING AT ANY SPEED ON ANY ROAD AS LONG AS THERE IS PRECIPITATION AND TEMPS ARE BELOW FREEZING.

2008 JEEP WRANGLER HAS HAD SEVERAL ISSUES WITH TIPM. WIPERS WILL COME ON, HORN WILL SOUND, WASHER FLUID SPRAYS, AND TRANSMISSION WILL NOT SHIFT (WHEN THE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION AND THIS HAPPENS) INTERMITTENTLY AND WILL SOMETIMES CREATE A NO CRANK/NO START CONDITION AFTER THE MALFUNCTION HAPPENS WHILE THE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION AND HAS BEEN SHUT OFF. DEFECT HAS BEEN TRACED BACK TO TIPM AND TIPM WAS REPLACED WITH AN AFTERMARKET REMANUFACTURED TIPM. PROBLEM RESOLVED AND NOW HAS REAPPEARED WITH ADDITIONAL SYMPTOMS, SUCH AS WHEN VEHICLE IS PUT IN REVERSE WIPERS WILL GO OFF AND ENGINE WILL REV TO HIGHER RPMS THAN NECESSARY TO ALLOW FOR ACCELERATION. THE TIPM DEFECT CREATES A SIGNIFICANT SAFETY HAZARD WHEN IT INTERFERES WITH THE SHIFTING, ACCELERATION OF VEHICLE. MOST RECENT ISSUE WAS 11/09/2020; ISSUE HAS BEEN ONGOING SINCE 06/2019.
