I had my compressor replaced about 2 months ago and am now having the same problem again (it won't go into ORI or ORII). I was prompted to check it out when I noticed that the compressor was making frequent hissing sounds (which was the telltale sign last time this happened).
I'm starting to get disillusioned with my Overland

Maybe the techs at my dealer aren't well trained, but replacing my compressor was not an easy fix for them. In addition to taking nearly a business week to fix (in fairness, they got me a loaner for the last 2 days), they dug around the interior so carelessly (I assume because they were trying to figure out what to do) that they scratched the back of my driver seat and the plastic rear of the passenger seat sags at the top.
I can only guess that the compressor is located under the rear seats, because that's where most of the grease and grime was left behind (yup, they didn't even clean up after themselves before delivering the "fixed" vehicle back to me). Additionally, they dropped something heavy and sharp on the door sill which left a dent and scratch.
When I expressed my concerns to the service manager and showed him the damage, he cleaned the interior with a solvent and said he could have their body shop repair the door sill. However, that would mean another couple of day's downtime.
Of course, now my truck is a rattle trap (undoubtedly because of all the digging the techs did inside) and I'm wary of baring the inevitable inconvenience and frustration invariably associated with having them identify and fix the noise.
To add insult to injury, the service manager had the tech come out to 'tell me what Jeep told him'. This amounted to him relaying to me that if I rapidly or frequently raised and lowered the suspension, it could burn out the compressor. Thinking of this 'blame the customer' meme still incenses me to this day. Particularly in light of the fact that I'm not some kid unfamiliar with having a car of this caliber who abusively plays with its features
. Further to that, this tech is presumbaly the same jerk who abused my car. It was shocking that these folks had the audacity to point the finger at me.
Needless to say, I'm very unhappy to be facing the prospect of another "easy fix". . .
