Check Engine twice in 2400 miles 2015 JGC 3.6

Basically if we let the gas run down to below 1/4 the Vehicle throws a check engine light. It's a 2015 JGC Limited with 3.6. Any ideas as the dealer said make an appointment, kind of hard to make an appointment for a check engine light, they don't seem to be very helpful as truck sat at dealer all day and nobody looked at it. My feeling low fuel sensor is bad. Probably has codes stored they did not even read them.

Oh and before anyone says don't let it run down that low the wife drives it and gets free gas Monday thru Friday from work so we never fill up on the weekends and her work has an unwritten policy about topping off on Fridays and refilling on Mondays.

Re: Check Engine twice in 2400 miles 2015 JGC 3.6

If it throws a check engine light 99.99% of the time it's going to store that code. The dealer should be completely capable of pulling the code with their diagnostics tool and fixing it with no problem. Maybe try a different dealer if that's possible.

I have a 2015 Overland V6 with 8k miles on it. Haven't had any issues thus far really, other than the crooked steeringwheel when new.

I found this thread ironic because my GC is sitting in the driveway right now, with a tank that's more empty than its ever been. Thankfully no check engine light lol

It amazes me that people spend $40k on a Jeep and have trouble with $20 for Torque Pro and a dongle that can display any stored trouble code and all of the parameters (like battery volts) that CJF declines to display. True, you need either a Android smart phone or $40 7" tab from Amazon but many already have.

iPhone users never mind, just take lotsa Benjamins to the dealer.

It's under warranty... Won't cost any benjys so I dunno why you're ranting.

First off it's not a rant, second if you have noting positive to add then why comment.
My son is a tech at an MBZ dealer, if I wanted the code read I would ask him but that's not the point. The point is the truck is 2 months old and has thrown codes and was delivered with a leaky power steering pump. The dealer says make an appointment too busy, it's under warranty and really difficult to make appointments for when a truck throws codes. To me it's a faulty sensor giving the PCM bad info and it throws the code they should fix it no questions asked. I'm a bit amazed at how the dealer seems to shrug off things but then my other cars are euro brands so am I expecting too much for the dealer to actually look into it, have not owned American in 20 years? I'm 100% positive there's stored codes and 100% positive when the service writer scanned the truck to write it up he saw the codes but failed to note them down. I'll take it back to the dealer that sold the truck and go from there.

Mods please close the thread.

bobble, I wasn't saying you were ranting. It was at the other comment.
