2003 Jeep Wrangler ProblemsJeep recall on ignition switch due to short-circuit
Jeep issued a recall on the ignition switch because the switch could short-circuit in the presence of water or impurities.
Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.
Some models are susceptible to rear main oil seal failures in dirty or dusty conditions. As dirt and dust collect on the oil seal, the abrasion wears through the sealing surface. A spacer is used between the bell housing and engine that has a small slot in the 12 o'clock position. Filling this slot with RTV silicone and cleaning the seal area can help prevent damage to the seal.
