2012 JGC 5.7 major electrical issues

Folks I have added a few phone videos of errors that I experience with my brand new JGC. This has been happening since the day I bought it brand new.

Re: 2012 JGC 5.7 major electrical issues

First off, I would give you a ticket for driving and using your cell phone to take a picture.

But in all seriousness, I would take it in like the above poster said (esp with the second video showing lights flickering). As far as the first video is concerned, are you worried about the odometer flipping back and forth between numbers, and the eco light going on an off? Mine sometimes does that when I am going from a _9 to a _0, its like it doesn't want to fully commit either decade bracket. Also, when I am driving up an slight incline with the eco, like it wants to stay in eco mode but can't. I don't know if that helps. But, it is never like that all the time. Good luck.

Re: 2012 JGC 5.7 major electrical issues

I read a couple of threads on the forum about electrical issues caused by a bad clockspring in the steering column. Yeap, I had no idea what a clockspring is, either, but here are the threads:
