2009 Jeep Wrangler Problems
Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.
Leaks at the front and/or rear differential pinion seal and from the transfer case are common. Leakage from the transfer case normally occurs at the case-mating surfaces and require removal of the transfer case to reseal.
Loose or worn suspension and steering components can cause a wobble or shaking in the steering wheel. It may happen at a certain speed and subside as the vehicle accelerates through the range. Tire balance can contribute to this as well.
2009 Jeep Wrangler Questions
While driving down the freeway, I started hearing a noise, almost like one of those cars that sounds like a rice burner. I pulled off and when I tried to go again, I lost all power and could not go above 30mph. What's could be causing this?
Day time running lights work but the headlights won't turn on. The high beams only come on if I continuously apply pressure to the turn signal bar.
Fuse? If yes, where is it located in the fuse box? Diagram for fuse box doesnt list headlights?
This did not happen during the winter but happens in the warmer days
2009 Jeep Wrangler Recalls
The clockspring is a coil of wire located behind the steering wheel, it allows the steering wheel to turn and still maintain the electrical connection between the steering column and the rotating steering wheel. Certain right hand drive models are being recalled because the circuit inside the clockspring could break. This could result in illumination of the airbag warning light and/or no-deployment of the driver's front airbag in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the clockspring and add a steering wheel dust shield to correct this concern.
Right hand drive vehicles, most often used by the Post Office, may be equipped with a steering column mounted clockspring assembly that could experience a compromised electrical circuit resulting in illumination of the airbag warning light. In the event of a crash, if the airbag warning light is illuminated, the driver's airbag may not deploy as expected. Failure of the driver's airbag to deploy increases the risk of personal injury. Dealers will perform the necessary repairs to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is L37.
Wiring may be reversed on the steering column control module driver's air bag connector and cause the driver air bag not to deploy. If the driver's air bag does not inflate when needed, the risk of injuries to the driver is increased. Dealers will inspect the driver's air bag squib wires and replace the steering column control module. The recall began in May, 2009. The recall number is J13.

My second Jeep. Love everything about it. Easy to maintain, easy to work on, parts inexpensive, freedom to go anywhwere, plenty of power, plenty of room, removeable doors and top, infinite versatality, great community of Jeep owners!
Engine is way under-powered, poor gas mileage. Chassis and body excellent for its utilitarian purpose.
The right front dampner(spelling) has blown 5 times and I don't drive this Jeep off road. Also I have had to have the differential drained and checked 4x. Somehow water was getting in. Now I'm told that color (milky white) is normal on jeeps, but the last time it was checked it wasn't that color. So either they lied that it's normal...or they are lying now. Just had to replace the brakes an...
