2014 not even 100 miles and issues
 
1. Check engine light came on and is still on sitting at service center now waiting , service advisor said it was drivable as long as it was not blinking - no excuse for a new car in my book

2. Remote start failed - horn only sounded once and engine did not start - walked over to the vehicle and watched for what happens when hitting remote start. received message on center console saying to reset remote start - start the engine. WTF ?

3. FWC system failed message on center console followed with ACC is disabled

Very disappointed in jeep , I'll post a follow up on what the mechanic says

That's disappointing for sure. Hope they solve it quickly for you.




I'm thinking you never should have gotten the cd player.:)

Yeah the CD player wasn't an option I picked out - but the only black on black v8 in 500 miles had it - so I had no choice

Serves you right. (And it figures.) Sorry to say that but someone with so with so much negativity kinda deserves crap to happen to him.

You must be referring to the dc groupbuy - so I guess you work for Koons , They don't like it when they loose business cause their GB is full of Crap - I gave them 5 hours to give me a purchase order and when they couldn't complete that simple task - sent me a work order instead - do yourself a favor and avoid this dealer - and thank you for reminding me to hit dealerrater.com to post a review.

They are saying the diag was throwing a page and a half of codes , supposedly from a loose ground wire on the main line

655321 03-23-2013 09:10 AM

So all in all it was throwing 30 codes, once the ground wire was secured everything went back to normal. Thought I had a lemon there for a minute. This main ground is located on the passenger side directly under the computer modules an towards the middle about arms length down attached to the frame. The nut that secures this line was on top of the thread and not secure.

So much for QA/QC. I am glad that it was a hardware problem only. Others have stated that they would gladly take a software problem over hardware, but I think the opposite.

What is the build date on your rig ? I am trying to see if all these reported problems have something in common ? A certain build date ? A certain VIN range ? etc.

Glad to hear it was minor. :thumbsup:



f1natic,

Build date might reveal something. But since they did not build them in any kind of vin order, I doubt that would help.
