Re: 12 Jeep GC High pitch humming noise from Gauges?!

I don't think this is the same issue that I am having and posted in my tuning fork sound thread. My sound ONLY happens when turning the wheel on some turns, not at idle. When were you hearing this noise? Is it the same one from my video? You keep saying it sounds like it's from the steering column, but mine sounds like from engine compartment. Trying to see if we're talking about two different things here or not. I don't see how the fix above would help with my Jeep's issue unless I am misunderstanding.

Can someone tell me where this is when I'm looking into my engine compartment? And I assume the fix are the two black "pads" on either side of that bracket?

Re: 12 Jeep GC High pitch humming noise from Gauges?!

Sorry to bump this again, but can someone explain the modification that was done in the picture? I can't see anything different from what I have already. Where was the rubber piece added?

Re: 12 Jeep GC High pitch humming noise from Gauges?!

Good Morning,

I am sorry to have taken so long to respond about the location of the steering pump location. Life tends to rearrange our plans. On my Jeep the pump and brackets are located on the left side of the engine compartment. I will post a better (picture) location of its location hopefully later today.

I know where the steering pump is, just can't tell what they did in your photos. Where is the 1/4" rubber piece that they added?

Re: 12 Jeep GC High pitch humming noise from Gauges?!

Good Morning,

There should be a couple better picture attached here with an arrow pointing to the rubber cushion/pad they put in between the powersteering pump and its' bracket. Hopefully this will clarify where the pump is in realation to the motor.

The picture labeled Rubber Bushing 2 shows where the rubber pad was placed.

The picture labeled Rubber Bushing 2a shows where the power steering pump is in relation to the motor.

I appologise for not getting this posted sooner.

Re: 12 Jeep GC High pitch humming noise from Gauges?!

I had bought GC 1 week ago, I met similar problems, I will try to find a dealer for that. It seems to be a common problem, is it?

First I have a 2014 GC Lareado with a 3.6 that I purchased about 1 month ago. I was working with the service manager(s) last week to try and get rid of the noise (a low tone or tuning fork type of sound.) in the steering column. All the service managers and workers had heard it and were at a loss as to what is causing it. The last Service Manager that I talked to used to be a service technician for Chrylser and nailed the problem in about 15 seconds. He said it sounds like the electric power streering pump.
We opened up the hood and listened for the sound and sure enough the noise was coming form there. We discussed various methods of reducing/repairing it but it turns out that a 1/4 inch piece of rubber between the mounting brackets was the easiest fix.
Apparently there was no padding between the "L" connector mount attached to the block (I believe.) and the pump itself thus causing the pump noise to travel up through whatever connections it has to the steering column inside. I have attached a picture and hopefully it is clear enough to see. If not let me know and I will take another. Anyway putting this rubber pad between the brackets reduced the tone to barely audible---for me it is practically nonexistant. I very seldom hear it and when I do it is very, very, faint.

It is working for rme (so far) and hopefully this will help someone else.
Thanks man! I've had what I believe to be the same noise (it's constant, very noticeable if the windows are up, and changes pitch/loudness when the steering wheel is moved) ever since I bought the vehicle, and the dealer I had look at it claims it's normal. Regardless of whether or not this is true, one thing is for sure, it's annoying, and kind of embarrassing too.

Anyway, I went out to the Jeep to take a look and unless I'm missing something, which is very likely, it appears my 2014 already has rubber in the area you're talking about.

I've attached two images; the first is a modified version of your picture. I put red x's on what I want to confirm is the rubber you're talking about?

The second is a picture I took of the same spot in my vehicle. Again, to me it looks the same so I'm wondering why I hear the noise (unless "noticeable" for me is "very, very faint" for you since you were used to yours being louder?), but like I said I'm probably missing something.
