2012 Jeep Wrangler ProblemsWater May Leak From A-pillar on Side Doors
Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.
The AC evaporator may freeze after extended use of the air conditioner. The output may feel low due to the restricted evaporator. Once the ice buildup melts, the AC operates normally. A revised low pressure cycling switch is available which may fix this concern.
If water leaks into the passenger compartment and under the passenger side carpet, an heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) drain hose is available.
2012 Jeep Wrangler QuestionsWon't start. Had doors off when issue started. (1 answer)
Won't let me use keyless entry anymore.
I drive a manual so my E-brake is needed. The other day it was found in the middle of the road. I find myself having to pull up with both hands as hard as I can and rocking the car to make sure it holds. Sometimes I'll hear a loud pop and then it'll start Rolling. What may be wrong?
Fit time it has not started in 3 and a half years
2012 Jeep Wrangler RecallsPassenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment
The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.
For right hand drive vehicles: the clockspring assembly that powers the driver's frontal air bag may become contaminated with dust and result in the failure of the driver's frontal air bag circuit. This would prevent deployment as commanded in an accident. Dealers will replace the clockspring, wheel back cover and column shroud free of charge to resolve the concern.
The heated outside rear view mirrors may develop corrosion in the wiring connectors that supply power to them. This can cause a fire hazard. Dealers will modify these wire connectors to provide a separate power feed free of charge to resolve this concern.
