If Jeep is working on it, maybe they will get it right and it only is a software issue. Yet, if there was any doubt in my mind that it wasn't, I wanted to be sure: especially since Jeep is so good at ducking fixing things.
It may be a leap of faith that it is a software issue.
Unless your mountain driving is toggling between aero mode and normal driving height frequently, there shouldn't be a lot happening with the suspension.
The compressor will get hot if there is not enough nitrogen in the system as it struggles to cope with that. [had a jeep mechanic mention that this could be more common than it should be--every molecule of nitrogen costs somebody money]
Or, the heat sensor could be having a bad day and tossing out bogus warnings, or the software could be busted such that a single spurious temperature isn't checked before passing it along to the driver. [one is hardware, the other software]
It definitely isn't normal. I commute on fast suburban roads, where mine drops to normal height at every red light, and goes back to aero soon after traffic gets moving, with a result that mine cycles between aero and normal quite frequently, yet even in temps way over 90's it never complains about heat [unlike me]
Make sure you have them record this on a service call--if they toss you off without putting in a service call you can lose your ability to claim warranty or lemon.
