Re: 2014 Overland Buzzer Sound while driving

I'll just confirm that I've also experienced this on my '12 Overland. Mine is a V8, so it's not a V6-only issue. It's only happened when I've been driving pretty darned fast, never below 80 mph (test track, professional driver on a closed course, do not attempt this at home, your mileage may vary).

It sounds like it originates under the left side of the dash. In my case, I don't think it's coming from the speakers. Knock on wood, i haven't had this happen for a long time.

Re: 2014 Overland Buzzer Sound while driving

2014 Summit here. So far I noticed two noises:

1- A high pitch grinding noise front the driver side (sort of like a girl's bike thumb bell). Happens at random times not predictable so far. Very concerning.
2- A faint low pitch noise on the driver side when I make a sharp right tern under strong acceleration.

Is the first one like yours?

YES, the first one is EXACTLY what we hear ! Still have no idea. We are hoping that it happens when we bring it in to the dealer. Otherwise we will just end up dealing with it until someone comes up with a real answer.. Clueless !!

Re: 2014 Overland Buzzer Sound while driving

Well. I went by the dealer and as expected it didn't happen when the took it for a drive.

I'll hold on on further visits as well until someone sheds some light. Plus I hate leaving the car at the shop. They usually manage to put more smudges and/or scratches than I could in a lifetime of driving...


This is very concerning. It happens very seldom but when it does it is alarming.

FYI, to those waiting for a 2014; I just went from a 2013 Summit to a 2014 Summit: Acceleration and gas mileage are a quantum leap better.

Re: 2014 Overland Buzzer Sound while driving

I just test drove a 2014 overland V6 today and heard the buzzing noise between 35-40 MPH coming from the driver's door. The sound was consistent and repeatable. Like others said it sounded kind of like a bell kids put on their bikes vibrating. The sales guy heard it too. They are going to check it out and see what the problem is.

Re: 2014 Overland Buzzer Sound while driving

I've been hearing a similar noise...2014 Overland with V6. I would describe the noise as a rattling rather than a buzzer. I did not hear the noise during the test drive but have heard it almost every day since we've had it home. We initially thought it was coming from a speaker on driver side but now I think it's coming from the vent to the left of the steering wheel. It sounds like something metal is rattling within the ventilation system or behind the dash. The dealership has had the Jeep twice now to investigate but has had no success. Dealership seems to think the noise will go away over time as everything "settles." We only hear the noise within the first 5-10 minutes of driving. MPH has varied from very slow up to 50 mph. We have tried letting the engine warm up more, turning off stereo, turning off air/heat, etc. Nothing has worked and we hear the noise every day upon initial drive of the day. We never hear it after the initial drive of the day, only after the Jeep sits overnight.

Let us know if anyone finds a resolution. We have 500 miles currently and are going to wait until 5,000 miles before we bring it back to the dealer again, in hopes that this will go away by itself. We bought the Jeep with about 20 miles on it. I have attached a video of the noise I took with my phone. It's faint in the video but much louder in person.

Re: 2014 Overland Buzzer Sound while driving

Great Idea...Here's the YouTube link...http://youtu.be/GH-TNdJ1tI8...the noise occurs at 16 seconds into the video. It is faint so you have to listen closesly. The noise is much louder in-person.

Re: 2014 Overland Buzzer Sound while driving

It does happen when the rpm are very low as in the video as well.

Hasn't happened in the last two days.
