Kind of annoying

Just got the thing and haven't even made the first payment, and already since I've had it a wheel speed sensor seems to be shorted out, and the clock spring seems to be broken, as the ABS Service 4x4 and airbag lights come on for a while sometimes, and then may go out or not.
Anyone know where to get the clock spring at a reasonable price? and the procedure for replacing it?

Re: Kind of annoying

Usually you get a warranty from the dealer for at least a month when you get a ride. Id take it back and say you want it fixed or you want your money back

Re: Kind of annoying

I think that maybe worth it than paying out of pocket. More so if there really is an airbag problem and the other messages and problems kinda sound like big ticket items.

Hope they dont screw you over and say its not covered.

Re: Kind of annoying

Service 4X4 System happens to most 05-06 Jeeps. It's happening to mine right now. I changed the fluid and the light just stays on. I called my dealership and they said that it's going to be $105 to reset the light. I'd rather save the money and just leave it on.

Re: Kind of annoying

Go to the dealership. It should still be under warranty

Re: Kind of annoying

wow, sorry to hear. I got my '05 last year and check engine light came on after 3 months. Five months, $250 and 3 rental cars later Chrysler in Queens Village NY "Stay Away everyone they are the worst when it comes to service" fixed the darn thing. That said, the service 4 wheel drive was coming on in my car also but it was usually after I have to hard crank the car after the battery was going dead.

Re: Kind of annoying

Silly me, I meant the service electric brake system, not the 4x4 light.
From my research that means there is most likely a wheel speed sensor with a shorted wire that either needs to be repaired or replaced.
For those with the service 4x4 light, it seems from what I've read to be caused by a software bug. There is a TSB out on it but I don't have the link.
The airbag light I'm almost positive is the clock spring, as I have a clicking sound when I turn the wheel.
I know it's 5 years old so gonna have a few little problems here and there.
Depending on the complexity an cost of the clock spring fix I may do it myself or see about takin it back, however I bought it from a Lexus dealer so not sure how that will work out either.
