2015 JGC Buzzing Noise??

Hello.. I just brought the JGC home last night from the dealer. This morning i Just noticed this buzzing noise from the engine. Of course, I didn't notice it last night when I was there.

Can someone tell me if they heard this before? It doesn't sound normal to me. It's constantly making the noise. Thanks for your help!!

Re: 2015 JGC Buzzing Noise??

I just found this forum. I orginally posted this on another forum a week ago. The same sound is still there. I don't think it's normal. I have an appointment at the dealer, 3 weeks out. I've been a honda/acura guy and never had to wait more than a couple days for an appointment. Otherwise, I love it so far.

I have the same noise on an my14 diesel. It came out of nowhere at around 6k kilometers. You can hear it clearly in the cabin at idle. I'm going to discuss it at the next service.

That's the electro/hydraulic steering and is 100% normal. IMO taking the vehicle in for this is a waste of time and just the opportunity for the dealership to screw something up while its in their possession. The vehicle sounded perfectly normal to me in that video. Relax and go enjoy your new Jeep :-)

Getting the flash done on my hitch install anyway. Since some people say their's don't have the sound, I'd rather not also. But it's comforting knowing it's somewhat normal I guess.

Yep super normal. Both my 14 and 15 had it. Electric power steering. Should here it whine more when turning the wheel left and right.

Completely normal. I have attached a video that I took of the same issue. I even had my wife turn the wheel and you can see the little arm spinning and the sound getting louder. I had to take mine in for something else and brought it up to them and they said it was normal and they replicated it on the lot with a new Jeep. Funny thing is I was walking to work the other day and walked past another GC and could hear it as I walked past.
