Known Problems

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.

The power window motor commonly fails in the front and rear doors. This may require replacement of the complete window regulator assembly which will include the window motor.

Water can leak near the A-pillar, at the front edge of the driver and passenger side doors. An improved seal is available.

The remote keyless entry system may not function intermittently. Our technicians tell us revised software for the wireless ignition node is available which can correct this concern.

An abnormal noise may develop from the HVAC blower motor as a result of debris ingestion. After any debris is removed, an air baffle screen can be installed on the inlet opening under the cowl grill to try and prevent a re-occurrence of the problem.

Ignition wire failures can cause a rough idle or intermittent engine misfire and there might not be a Check Engine light.

Ignition wire failures can cause a rough idle or intermittent engine misfire and there might not be a Check Engine light.

A small leak from loose charcoal in the charcoal canister (part of the Evaporative Emissions System) may cause Check Engine Light illumination.

A Check Engine Light may illuminate indicating a "Cylinder #3 Misfire." This normally occurs in hot weather after the vehicle has been driven, parked for ten to twenty minutes, and then restarted. Heat from the exhaust vaporizes fuel inside the #3 fuel injector and causes the misfire. Installing an insulator sleeve normally lowers the temperature enough so the fuel will not vaporize.

If the downstream (rear) oxygen sensor wiring harness contacts the propeller (drive) shaft, it can damage the oxygen sensor and the wiring harness for the sensor, and/or cause Check Engine Light illumination. The wiring harness should be repaired and secured away from propeller shaft.

Ignition wire failures can cause a rough idle or intermittent engine misfire and there might not be a Check Engine light.

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.
