Question 2011 Jeep vibrating noise from center console under radio when cold

My car has been making a loud rattling noise in the console under the AC /Radio in the morning. It happens about 5 minutes into my drive ( not right away) and Im always stopped at a light in drive but with my foot on the brake. I can manipulate the noise by turning the steering wheel to make it louder. It never happens in any other gear and will not happen for the rest of the day if its warm enough. My dealership is blowing me off and the last time I took my jeep in they told me they found a "loose wire" and now its fixed. Well its not fixed! Any idea of what this could be would be appreciated!
Thanks,
Lauren

Mine did it constantly on small bumpy roads. I took it in. A couple of things they found. I have a 2011 Overland. The tech replaced the sensor housing under the mirror and placed foam around it so it will not rattle against the windshield. If you hit the center of the dash it would rattle, he placed some rubber stuff around the front vent and the rattle went away. I have noticed a small dash rattle once now in 2weeks. It it gets really bad I will take it in.

I've had a series of small rattles from here and there and am running out of velcros and foams. Jeep should do better job on its top of the line vehicle.

I do agree. They boast about the strength of the GC and all the welds that are in it. If I paid 43k I expect a sound car with no squeaks.
