Question Its is christmas in July (electronics)

totally new to the Jeep garage...looking forward to reading your posts. Problem with my 14 gc though with only 600 miles. Its the Christmas tree light issue. Dealer still doesn't know what to do...and the Star folks are still guessing too. Anyone know of what really is working?? My abs module is not communicating with the computer and throws about 18 codes and about 7 lights on the dash....any help would be much appreciated...thanks..by the way, I am totally new to posting may not know all the right ways to post properly...but I can learn!!!

Re: Its is christmas in July (electronics)

If any of the codes are voltage (high or low) problems, you most likely have the infamous loose ground connection.

This MUST be checked and corrected IMMEDIATELY or permanent damage may result.

All ground connections must be physically handled and checked for secure connection.

See amc2002's thread, 2014 GC Totally $#@% dead for more sad tail of woe (but a happy ending, it seems last I read).

Re: Its is christmas in July (electronics)

thanks for the info...I am going to another dealer to day. The one I had to take it to initially (it was only 2 miles from where I experienced the failures) pretty much couldn't find out what the problem was...the car seemed to make a full recovery on its own (not for long probably) The new dealer where I actually made the purchase wants to help at this point...but it took several phone calls to get everyone's attention. thanks again
