My Jeep lost all power and brakes while driving. The ABS and brake lines are charred throughout the entire vehicle from overheating and the main wiring harness was damaged as well. The vehicle is currently and national Dodge jacksonville nc awaiting repairs. Mike in the service department says the ABS overheated but no fire but another mechanic I had look at it said there was a small fire.

Incidents of engine stall; airbag non-deployment; random horn, headlight, taillight, door lock, instrument panel and windshield wiper activity; failure of fuel pump shutoff resulting in unintended acceleration; and fires. All the dash back lights come off and on randomly especially the heater controls. Air bag light is always on. Air bag light and beeper flash and beep all the time and no mechanic does not know what to do about it. Very flushterating to drive w airbag beeping. No resale value due to all the above things. Will you buy it? horn has now stopped working and lights behind the heater do not work either.

The warning light for the brake assist, airbag & stability control light up. Took it to the shop and was told that the clock spring was faulty that is why the lights come on. The cost to repair the clock spring is over $800. All it does is make it so the warning lights turn off, so I have chosen not to repair it. This is a common problem with the jk Wrangler. The problem is if there really is an issue then I won't know because the light is always on. I feel that Jeep should repair this as a recall.

Shortly before taking vehicle in for brakes, the ABS/esp/bas and traction lights came on. Repair shop stated this would reset after brakes replacement. It did not. Now the lights are on all the time. I have no ABS, no traction control and vehicle is all over the road in inclement conditions. Also the wipers won't turn off after car is turned off and key is removed. They operate on low or high no intermittent. The fluid works and the rear wipers and fluid works, but the wipers wont turn off unless I remove the fuse. And now the cruise control will not work. I was told the tipm is bad, but looking at reviews online. It seems like this is a safety concern for all these issues and should be cause for recall.

This vehicle was classified as having excellent off-road capabilities. After it's first Excursion off-road, the clutch throwout bearing was found to be rattling and had come apart. A full clutch replacement was completed with all new components by a licensed and certified mechanic with excellent outcome. 1 month after the clutch replacement the clutch pedal suddenly went to the floor and would not release the clutch. Replacement of the clutch slave, master and hydraulic line as well as a full hydraulic fluid flush yielded no success even with pressure and vacuum applications to bleed the system. This failure of plastic parts designed for off-road applications is a major safety issue. This system is fed by the brake fluid reservoir and could compromise the braking system if it fails. Numerous tsb's and a possible recall were noted but the dealer notified me that the VIN was not covered under the recall even though it was within the scope of the recall covered years, make and model. Will have Jeep finish the repair at no cost since it seems to be a flawed design.

The contact owns a 2007 Jeep Wrangler. The contact stated that the front wheels rubbed against the brake hoses and caused the brake lines to blow out. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician verified the failure and stated that the brake hose needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 76,000.

Over time the stock L/F tire rubbed through the brake line causing the L/F caliper to lock up wearing down the L/F brake pads and overheating the rotor. The brake hose, caliper, brake pads and front brake rotors needed to be replaced. I had an independent mechanic look at this and he believes it is a defect in the design on the vehicle. The stock L/F tire should never touch the brake line within the turning radius of the vehicle. I was very lucky that I didn't travel very far with the caliper locked on the wheel, it could of led to a fire. Chrysler did not claim any fault and charged me for the repair. I have found other similar complaints posted online.
