Jeep ProblemsEngine Will not Start Due to Wireless Control Module Fault
A no crank or no start condition may develop due to electronic lockup of the wireless control module (WCM), also referred to as the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM). When this module fails the remote keyless entry system will also not operate. The WCM is commonly replaced to correct this concern.
The service 4WD system light may illuminate with no fault codes stored in the final drive control module (FDCM). Our technicians tell us a software update for the FDCM is available to correct this concern.
If the power door locks are buzzing or are intermittently noisy, a new door latch assembly may solve this. The door lock actuators are integrated into the latch assemblies.
Jeep QuestionsJust replaced front and back abs sensors on my jeep how do I reset abs light (1 answer)
I just need the lights off before I get an inspection
One day started missing really bad and check engine light came on and I check the codes and it said multiple cylinders misfired so I changed all spark plugs and ignition coils. I started it up and I still runs the same with alot of misfiring and turns off by itself.
There are 4 map lights in the overhead console area. 2 on each side. one of them is controlled by pressing it, and it turns off and on. It is the smaller one that turns on when I start the car, and just the light on the drivers side of the console. thanks Rick
Jeep RecallsTransmission Shifts To Neutral Unexpectedly
Transmission sensor clusters may have insufficient crimps in the transmission wire harness, resulting in the transmission unexpectedly shifting into neutral. Dealers will update the transmission software to prevent the transmission from shifting into neutral due to a faulty crimp free of charge to resolve the concern.
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.
