2014 Overland broke down yesterday....had to be towed.

So yesterday, I started the Jeep with only 1200 miles on it. It stalled right away after turning over. Thinking maybe the cylinders misfired I started it again and it started as normal. Then while driving it, the check engine light came on almost immediately (blinking, not steady yellow) and had very little power when stepping on the gas. However, when the Jeep was at idol it was fine. I immediately pulled over and jeep was towed. No diagnosis as of yet. Anyone care to chime in what this could be? My service peeps are way cool! They gave me a 2013 Overland they had on the used car lot to drive around in the meatime...

Not sure if it means the same but in other manufacturers flashing engine light meant exhaust problem. Often a plugged CAT or something but I have never seen this on that low of miles.... I believe the flashing is more about severity than an actual diagnosis but when I have seen it it was exhaust. Even Throttle Body failures usually dont show as a flashing indicator...Possibly a Sensor issue but that is just a guess.

Damnnnnn. Another '14 in the shop. I really hope my '14 Overland avoids these issues. 2,100 trouble-free miles so far.

Good luck. I'm looking forward to the update.

Re: 2014 Overland broke down yesterday....had ot be towed.

MY 14 limited v6 had issues, couldn't accelerate, then stalled out on the highway... they had to replace the catalytic converter. After I got it back, still wasn't right, couldn't accelerate, and they replaced the oxygen sensors. Third time it went in, they replaced the ABS module. Just got it back last night... hopefully that was the last fix needed. 3 trips to the dealer, about 21 days all told. Less than 1000 miles on it still.

I hope your issue is nothing like this, but the stalling out and now power sounds kinda similar.

Only time I've ever had a flashing mil was an ignition coil failing, symptoms were similar as well. Idles fine but no power/would not rev very high.

Really need to know what codes were set, just guessing otherwise.

Re: 2014 Overland broke down yesterday....had ot be towed.

I'm wondering if the Jeep is kinda like a junkyard dog, and can sense fear!

If there's any silverlining, I'm glad these issues are happening early and not later once out of warranty...
