Known Problems

There have been numerous complaints of early transmission failure, even with with normal servicing. Issues start with a whining noise, overheat warnings, and an inability to accelerate. The most common solution is replacement of the transmission. Late 2014 model year Patriots changed to a non-CVT transmission.

Water leaks may be noted from the front and/or rear roof area. Our technicians recommend to inspect the roof ditch and sunroof - Check all grommets and plugs, reseal roof seams, and replace the sunroof drain tubes if necessary.

Vehicles equipped with manual transmissions may become difficult to shift. The repair may involve replacing the 3rd/4th/5ht & reverse gear synchronizer rings as a set.

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.

A squeak noise may be noted when applying or releasing the clutch pedal. Our technicians tell us that lubricating the clutch master cylinder push-rod ball socket should correct the concern.

Our technicians tell us that various dirveability and Check Engine Light issues can be corrected by updating the powertrain control module (PCM) software.

A rattle type noise may be noted from the AC compressor or the compressor could be damaged due to "slugging" of the refrigerant. The compressor may require replacement to correct this concern. If the compressor is replaced an updated condenser may also be required.

An abnormal noise may be noted from the HVAC blower motor. This can be caused by debris from the glove box entering the blower motor via the recirculation door. A screen is now available which can be installed over the recirculation air inlet to keep debris out of the blower motor.

A fluid leak may be noted from the front struts and/or the vehicle may handle "rough" Our technicians tell us that replacing the leaking struts and installing a revised jounce bumper and dust shield should correct these concerns.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P0139 and/or P0571. Our technicians tell us the revised powertrain control module (PCM) is available to correct this concern.

A swish sound may be heard from the rear over bumps. The repair may involve installing a shock cap on both rear shocks.

A clicking or scraping sound may be noted from the clutch pedal area when turning the steering wheel in the full down tilt position. Our technicians tell us the clutch switch stop flag may require modification to correct this concern.

Clutch pedal "push back" may be felt towards the end of the pedal travel. The repair may involve removing the pedal arm "over-center" spring.
