Loud High Pitch Whistle with video.....

Hi All,

Keep getting a whistling noise on my 2015 KL Trailhawk Cherokee it happens in gear, neutral, park etc, doesnt go away while driving either, it started at about 200KMs I now have 500KMs on the clock I have no idea what it could be...any ideas?

Here is a link to a video of the noise...it will ask you to sign up but just hit the little x and it will show the video

Re: Loud High Pitch Whistle with video.....

Are all of the windows fully closed? I had a whistle like this once and realized the source was a rear window opened a quarter-inch. I don't recall if the whistle only occurred with all doors closed or not though. Seeing as that your door is open, I'm skeptical that an open window is the culprit here. But worth a look.

I have the same exact noise that started today. Very strange that you posted this today. I have about 1500 miles on my 2015 TH. The noise stopped when the auto shutoff kicked in, then continued when it turned back on. ???

Took my car into the service dept today, they advised it is the rear diff solenoid that controls the 4WD mechanism is buzzing. They are waiting on Jeep head office or something to determine what to do. Sounds like its going in to have some repairs done at under 600KMs on the clock.
