Probably a loose fuse. Take it to the dealer - it's likely a 30 second fix.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

A weak horn could result from wiring or contact issues, but the first thing to look at is the horn itself. For starters, has it been knocked out of position? If not, try swapping out with a good horn. Fuses are almost always either-or: they let juice through or they don't.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

My issue with stalling on acceleration when cold: Adjusting the Throttle Response per the directions contained in a recent post seems to have made the situation / problem much less noticable. Will continue to work with resetting the throttle and experimenting with it. This could be the solution to my problem, anyway. From another post elsewhere on this site:

Re: Engine Surging
Here's the steps you need to follow:
1. Find an unused section of road with a good spot to pull-off/turn-around.
2. Pull off of the road and shut your car off.
3. Turn your key to the "On" position (but don't start the car), and wait for the 'idiot' lights to go out.
4. Press down on the accelerator, and let it back up.
5. Turn your car off.
6. Re-start your car and cruise up and down the road testing your throttle responsiveness.
Depending on how fast/slow you do the 4th step, your throttle will either become more or less sensitive/responsive.
Repeat steps #1 through #5 as needed until you're satisfied that your throttle response is as good as it's going to get.

Remember these things 'learn' how you drive so if you drive like Grandma for a few days, it's adjusts accordingly.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

Hi all...new to the forum and just purchased an Overland fully loaded JGC with the 5.7L Hemi. I've owned it for about a week and a half and absolutely love the vehicle. The only thing I've noticed is that when I start it, there is a puff of blue-grey smoke. It's done it twice and not sure if its break-in, bad valve gaskets or a leaking injector. I have 700 miles on it and broke in the engine properly. I contacted the dealer and they said its new and this is normal. I've owned two 5.7LH before and didn't have this experience. The operation of the engine is normal and its not eating oil. Anyone else experience this or have suggestions?

I noticed it the first couple weeks on my5.7 as well. Not real sure whether breakin or burning out residuals upon start or what but seems to have lessened. I just turned over 2000 miles on my limited.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

Well that's good news! I was hoping it was just residuals from manufacturing. I'm not too worried at the moment given the low number of miles on it. I appreciate your feedback whateverworks.. and I'll certainly keep an eye on it.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

I decided to add my growing list of problems to my signature.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

i have had TSBs done for remote proximity issues, shudder (still not fixed), and the squeaking rear shock mounts.
in addition, the buttons and vol. knob on the left side of my 430n fail to light up at night.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

Hi jp. . .is the right rear clunk you're hearing on any bump (parking lot speed bump, etc. . .) or is it only for pot holes, curbs, etc. . . ?

I noticed that on my QL previously for larger bumps but haven't noticed it in a couple of weeks.

So far my only issues are a few interior rattles (I think one is coming from the passenger seat - it's nonexistant when someone's sitting there).

No, I didn't see that. It's not a TSB, so my dealer won't do anything about it I'm sure. When I told them about the problem, their response, predictably, was "couldn't reproduce."

It just started yesterday and it happens quite often now when going over bumps such as transitions from the road into parking lots, where one pavement surface changes to another, etc. I don't have QL. I do have load-leveling suspension, though.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

I have the 730 and it has an intermittent problem of not doing anything. There are times when the radio has no sound, won't connect to the iPod, and does not react with the touch screen the way it is being operated (in fact the screen will not have the normal display, it will be missing some features for the radio). I have had this happen several times. The last two times I have used my phone to video what is happening or not happening. I also verbally date the when the issue is happening. If it continues and I go back to the dealer, they won't be able to tell me they can't duplicate, I will show them multiple videos of proof that it is happening.
