Re: Power Steering Failure
UPDATE ON PS FAILURE. Where do I begin? After 2 days without the vehicle the dealer said to come get it, all fixed. That was Tuesday 4/7. Yesterday, Sat, 4/11, 30 mi from home, start up, no P.S.! After a couple of restarts it luckily came back. What is most frustrating that when I brought it in, even after explaining to them that I had 30 years of automotive repair history,my polite skepticism of their diagnosis and request to speak with the tech and perhaps provide some helpful information was dismissed. "We know what we're doing" was the reply. Well, apparently not. I had posted on jeepforums.com looking for information when this first happened. A representative from "Jeep cares" saw it and replied asking for the VIN and Dealers name and offering to get to the bottom of this matter for me. I am taking her up on that kind offer. I'm sure that Chrysler will not be happy about a $1000 warranty submission to replace a perfectly good PS pump. Due to the intermittent and abrupt failure and comeback, I still hold that this is a bad connection, ground, or possibly a glitch in whatever software is related to the PS. I want to maintain a good relationship with my local dealer, but I did not pay $40,000 for a vehicle that I have to get in and hope that the PS works. I will continue the updates.
