Known Problems

Certain 2002-2006 vehicles were recalled to replace the lower ball joints because they were susceptible to damage from moisture. For more information on this recall, please click here»

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.

An engine misfire at idle (rough idle), accompanied by illumination or flashing of the Check Engine Light, could indicate a problem with one or more of the intake valves. Revised intake valves & valve locks are available to address 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.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with code on or more of the following codes: P2302, P2305, P2308, P2311, P2314, P2317, P2610. Reprogramming of the PCM will be necessary to correct this concern.

The sky slider sunroof may not open. A software upgrade for the control module is available which should correct this concern.

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.

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.

The manual transmission may jump out of gear. Our technicians tell us that replacing the 1-2 synchronizer assembly should correct this concern.

The sky slider sunroof may develop a wind noise and/or loss of "express" mode. Our technicians tell us that lubrication the front drive cables, replacing the front header bow, and initializing the sunroof module will generally correct these concerns.

The automatic transmission may stay in "default" mode with no fault codes stored. Reprogramming the powertrain control module (PCM) may be necessary to correct this concern.

The fuel tank may become hard to fill and/or the fuel fill nozzle may shut off repeatedly while fueling. Our technicians tell us that various items including the fuel tank, vapor recirculation tube, fuel fill tube, or EVAP system canister control valve may be at fault. Proper diagnoses will be required to determine the exact cause of this concern.

Vehicles with a 3.7L V6 engine may develop a chirp type noise from the serpentine belt when the steering wheel is at full lock with the engine idling. Our technicians tell us a revised serpentine belt tensioner is available to correct this concern.
