Exclamation Jeep at dealer - torque converter being replaced.

Dealer : The Faricy Brothers - Colorado Springs, CO

21 DEC :

Jeep breaks down, dealer is called, dealer confirms Jeep is under warranty, dealer sends truck to pick up Jeep.

22 DEC :

Tech looks at Jeep, deems torque converter the culprit, begins search for new part, will also look into transmission to see if anything else is broken.

TO BE CONTINUED!

Just got an update - first truck from the dealer came to tow but the driver had to call another guy since the Jeep was too low LOL.

I have read about it a bunch on the other site, talked to Tom and he told me it was a known issue with the 07's. Hopefully it's taken care of.

Thanks! I'm sure it's going to be fine, I know it's in good hands at that dealer. Our point of contact at the Faricy Brothers has actually come to the house and helped us work on our WJ doing a Overland axle swap. He is also mod friendly!

Re: Jeep going to dealer tonight!

With this snow, something weird also happened with my Jeep. Today the ESP BAS light came on for a minute and then went off.

I wrote it off as a hiccup.
