After they charged it did the sounds go away?

Re: AC sounds like water faucet turnin on and off UPDATE

As an update to the Darth Vader noise.....

I just crossed 35k miles took it in and said to a new service tech. Ok its starting to make the noise again. He looks at me and goes like Darth Vader? I said yes he said its the condensate or condenser pump glad you got it here before warranty went out. I will need the car for 2 to 3 days we will have a loaner for you it involves taking a major portion of the dash off.

I said how come the other tech had it for two days and couldnt solve the problem other then to recharge? ... guy says hey hes not me just give me a good review!!!

So i am driving a 2014 Grand Cherokee Larado fully optioned 6k miles. .... the radio/map display goes out 10 miles down the road and i am glad i dont have the V6 in mine AND I am not sure i am a fan of the 8 speed.

Anywhooo update for you all to share if need.

Thanks for the update! Before I go in to (hopefully) get this fixed, I was curious as to whether or not the problem was fixed for good for you after the condensate or condenser pump was replaced, or if it still made the noise or came back after a while. I'd hate to have them take apart the dash for no reason.

Got a PM from the OP (eriet30) who said I could post this here:

So did it fix it? I would say 90% and I am just living with it.

Out of curiosity, on those days you do hear it, is it constant like it used to be (and is for me -- if it's warm out and the AC is on, I hear it about once every 15 seconds)? Or does it make the noise for like a minute and stop for a while?

I had the same fear about the dash dealer did pretty good and I dont have any rattles in the dash as of yet. however the tech left dirty hand prints on the roof beam where you could tell he was bracing when working on the dash. Hope that helps. This and a vibration are the only issues i have had so far and I do love the GC and am very happy
