Here we go.... Dash noise = Pop

After reading lots of threads about our Jeeps, i kept reading some threads about noises, and everybody seems to have a different noise, somewhere.

Well, I kept thinking that i must be lucky and haven't experienced any of those weird noises. Guess what?!? Since last week, every now and then i hear this loud POP noise from somewhere, i guess top of dash, maybe behing the cluster... I can't pin point the exact location because it is so quick and random(usually it happens once a day) and of course, I'm driving when this happens.

At first, i thought, could it be because the interior is hot, and by turning the AC on maybe the plastics are reacting to the temperature change? I notice this usually happens when the car is sitting outside on temperatures around 85F. I'm going to start logging when it happens and maybe get a camera recording and maybe show the dealer if it starts to get worse.

IDK, please input your opinions and thoughts. Thanks.

Re: Here we go.... Dash noise = Pop

just noticed the same thing on mine couple of days ago

I was trying to locate the sound, it seems coming from around the center of the dash.
Decide to make more investigation in this regard before going to the dealer

Re: Here we go.... Dash noise = Pop

What model year / trim Jeep?

I occasionally get a loud pop/crack sound on my 2013 Laredo X. It has been loud enough that passengers have asked, "What was that?". It comes from the center stack. It almost sounds like someone twisting an ice tray to break the ice cubes loose.

My opinion at this point is that it is something expanding/contracting (HVAC controls) from the different temperature extremes of the vehicle warming up or cooling down from extreme cold/hot.

I don't know that I heard it this past winter, but I expect to hear it again this summer once the temperatures start going up.

Re: Here we go.... Dash noise = Pop

I drive through a tunnel every day going to work and at least once, sometimes twice, while driving through the tunnel, I get a series of loud pops...

The first time I heard it, it was so loud and jarring that I thought I had run over something that had shattered and got pulled up into the engine.

After a few experiences with it, Ive determined its coming from the speakers.

I guess I've gotten used to it since I dont react to it very much at this point, but it seems to be related to the radio and something in there is causing it to happen.

When in complete paranoia mode, I start thinking that the radio may be picking up some type of monitoring system that they are using... license plate reader, etc...

Thumbs down Re: Here we go.... Dash noise = Pop

I have a '14 Laredo E with RA2 . At first, the noise sound from dead center top dash(last time it happened it sound like top dash behind cluster, looking up from the start button), and it seems to happen on hot days, while the AC is starting to cool down the cabin.

That was a great way to describe the noise -like breaking loose ice cubes from an ice tray- Sometimes it is LOUD.

From what i saw on top of dash, there is the top dash vents trim part and maybe there seems to be a center plastic cover, where i believe the top of line models house the 3.5" dash speaker.

Now we need to find out if the higher models with the dash speaker or the leather covered dash, are experiencing the same noise.
