My Jeep first ten days
Good evening, my wife and I picked up our 2012 Limited on Thursday night Nov. 17th. By Saturday night and thirty miles the check engine light came on. (picked her up with five miles on the odo). So Tuesday we go to the dealer (55 miles on odo) and he cleared some codes and gave her back to us. Engine lLight came on almost right away. Brought it back Wednesday morning (77 miles on odo) they changed out a solenoid cleared out codes and gave it back after driving 20 miles on her. :mad:

The light came on again on the way home. So after waiting thru the holiday in which they were closed for four days, I took her in this morning (Monday). After waiting around all day from 6:45 am to 2:45pm they decided they needed to change the valve body and kept the car overnight. So our Jeep will have stayed in the shop four days out of it's first ten. And has a total of 115 miles on the odometer.

My question to you guys is Does it seem strange to have to replace a valve body on a brand new truck? And how will the Jeep run after the new part is installed? Will I have drive ability or longevity issues going forward? I still think they are grasping at straws. Needless to say we're pissed.

Thanks in advance, Mike.

Yes, but right now they are on the service invoices in the Jeep. First two times I was unconcerned, electronics you know. But now they are talking about valve body....................

So it was a transmission fault code? If its the valve body and they replace it you shouldn't have any more issues with it. Its probably just a bad part from the factory.

Sorry to hear it bro, I'd be pissed too. Hope they get it fixed and you have many years of carefree miles driving your new Jeep.

JP , I want to thank you for your reply. It makes me feel better about having future reliability problems.

Thanks Kev, I truly hope so.

Scott, I'll get you those codes if my Jeep is ready later today. Thanks bro.

Re: My Jeep first ten days
Ok picked up my Jeep half hour ago. No engine light on the way home. Here's the codes from the first visit. WCM B1A25 and WCM B1A6C. These were reset and I was sent on my way. The next day this code came up P0871 0D pressure switch rationality. They replaced the Trans solenoid assembly. The third visit they say that they found the problem. It had the same code as as the day before, they disassembled the valve body and found the check ball had been cracked in two and one piece missing. They assured me that the piece was indeed missing and replaced the check ball. Only time will tell if that is the fix. Thanks Jeep Garage for allaying my fears.
