Re: 2014 jeep patriot four weeks old turns off while driving!!!!!
Your Not alone,I purchased a new 2014 Jeep patriot, And I'm having the same issue and in addition AC problems.
First time My ac would not turn on, You had to turn the max button all the way back and forth to get it to turn on and the car had cut off driving thru a grocery parking lot.
Immediately took it in and of course I get " We can't find anything wrong with it, There are no updates on the computer"
3 Weeks later the Ac does the same thing I literally drive it right in to the dealership and a service man comes out and see's that it will not come on normally. This time They said it was'nt having the proper connection on the board, of which I was told it was replaced.
A month later I'm drving thru a downtown area with 3 friends in the Jeep and the car cuts off again going 45 MPH. Have to come to a complete stop of course to restart it." At least I have 3 witness's for this time"
I immediately made another appt. This time they kept it for 1 1/2 days , Still could not get it to recreate the stalling /cutting off when driving,said there had been no other problems/complaints in the system that they could find. They did not find any updates in the Main updates system, And said it did not show any stalling or cutting off in the memory chip..I was then asked, Do me a favor " Try your spare key, It may be something with the one your using now"
I definately do not feel safe driving this Jeep, especially on the highway or driving kids around in Florida if they can't even find that there is an issue.Lord only knows what may go next.
Well today 9/19/13 I go out to the car for lunch, And again I am having the same issues with my AC. It took me another 5 mins to finally get it to turn on after twisting and pushing the buttons.
I again called and made an appt with the territory Service Rep who will not be in the area until 10/2/13
There is a definate problem with the electrical, Computer, Wiring or something in this jeep and I don't even have 1800 miles on it.
Literally ready to junk the thing as I'm made to feel like it's me and not the Jeep.
Going in for the 3rd time for the AC and been in twice for the cutting off while driving, " And we can't find anything wrong with it"
