Stalled and no power steering!

I am having my first issue with my summit. This morning my truck stalled, the wheel locked up, and ECIC flashed FWC OFF. This is the second time this happened. Last time I brought it to the dealership who said they could not replicate the problem and nothing was wrong. Anyone have any ideas what this could be??

Re: Stalled and no power steering!

I would ask them to reflash the ECU and all electronics or you can just disconnect your battery terminals let it sit overnight and then connect them back up and see if it happens again

Re: Stalled and no power steering!

I had mine shut off while turning into a mall parking lot. I felt the steering get hard to turn (lost power steering) and when I looked down at my gauges the vehicle was off. I put it into park and pushed the start button and it fired right up.

This happened about 6 weeks ago and it has not happened since or before.

Re: Stalled and no power steering!

I had this happen on my 2008 WK and on my 2011 WK2, both times i took it into the dealership and the fix i was told each time was software updates to the Jeeps computer system. Haven't had it happen again since the updates were done for free at the dealership.
