WK Limited Electrical Problems

I bought my Jeep used about a year ago, and since I've had it, it seems that on days where it's > +15 Celcius my steering wheel audio controls don't work properly. Each control will do something that a different control would do, but it's not always the same.

Also, my automatic windows randomly don't work properly either. Sometimes the auto up/down doesn't work and I have to hold it. Other days it's extremely sensitive and I can't just put them up/down a tiny bit. Sometimes when I get home and put it in park, I'll hit the auto up/close to close the windows and sunroof, then take my key out of the ignition while I wait, but then a random window will reverse its direction and go back down, and will have no problems closing the 2nd time.

I assume the best solution for this would be to take it to a dealership, but I was wondering if anyone might know what specifically causes these things to happen, and if it would be easy to fix myself.

Re: WK Limited Electrical Problems

there are many TSB's for the windows. bad thing is they wont do them for free if you are out of warranty.......i had both modules and regulators swapped under warranty.

Re: WK Limited Electrical Problems

I'm pretty sure the Warranty is done. It's an 06 with 114K KM on it. If I went to a dealership and had them check to see if they have fixed anything, and it's still having problems. Would they cover it for free?

The stereo is completely stock. It's a REC unit and there's a factory DVD system for the back. The only thing I've done is update the NAV with a burned disc, but the problem existed before then.
