Jeep ProblemsFront/Rear Differential Pinion Seal/Transfer Case Leaks are Common
Leaks at the front and/or rear differential pinion seal and from the transfer case are common. Low fluid level in the differential or transfer case can result in bearing failure. Damaged bearings commonly cause a whine or growl type noise.
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.
Electrical contacts in the tail lamp housing tend to break or melt, which can cause the brake lights to fail or work intermittently. Complete inspection of the tail light housing and bulbs is recommended before replacing any parts.
Jeep QuestionsCar squeals upon start up and stops squealing after a couple of miles (1 answer)
Jeep squeals upon start up. I replaced the belt twice , replaced the idler pulley and the tensioner and pulley, it still squeals at start up and continues to squeal until engine is warm
I am removing the alternator. I have no diagragm in the users manual for the serpentine belt and Haynes and Chilton don't make a book for my car.
After repairing leak engine starts ,but is skipping terribly and will not run past 40 mph. I've read that when this happens sometimes the valve sets drop . Question is where are the valve sets?
Jeep 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.
