12 Jeep GC High pitch humming noise from Gauges?!

Hey everyone just purchased a 12 Jeep GC and i noticed it has this really high pitched whine/humming noise that seems like it is coming from the gauge cluster/steering wheel area. When I turn the steering wheel back and forth its changes the tone of the humming! It is drving me CRAZY! It sound like the buzzing sound when your get a hearing test! Please HELP!

Hmmm I've never heard of this issue. I would most definitely bring it in to the dealer.

Let us know what they find. I'm curious as to what is the cause of that issue.

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

Well I dropped off the Jeep last night at the dealership. I spoke to the service manager and he def heard the noise, now hopefully they can fix it and I can come back and tell you guys what it was in case someone else has the same problem...

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

The dealer just called me and told me, that this noise is associated with the power steering pump (since its electric) and it is a high pitched frequancy...but the service manager said they listened to a brand new Jeep with like 3 miles on it and it did the same thing but not as loud as mine. So they ordered a new steering pump (900.00, 10 days out) so I will not know if this will fix it or not...

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

I just bought a 2012 GC as well and it is doing the same thing. Makes me absolutely insane. Took it to two dealers, they said it was a normal noise due to power steering. I say BS! Did yours get fixed?

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

I just bought a 2013 GC and have the same thing. Dealer tells me it's normal. I just can't believe that. The whine is so pronounced when idling I have to turn on the radio. It is making me nuts. Has anybody been able to fix theirs?

Are you sure it's not the HVAC system? I have a similar whine in my GC. When manually turn off the HVAC system, it's gone.

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

I had a similar noise in my 2011. It sounded like it was coming from the gauges but turned out to be a loose bolt that attached the a/c lines to the radiator support.
