Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 126,000 miles


Windshield wipers and lights failed to work during icy rain/snowy conditions. Road visibility was significantly impaired and I couldn't see my instrument panel. I had no option but to continue home at very slow speeds to avoid an accident. After approximately 20 minutes of driving without wipers, the wipers suddenly turned on by themselves, moving very fast. I could not adjust the wiper speed at all. When I arrived home and turned the Jeep off and removed the keys, wipers still would not turn off. I had to disconnect the battery to stop the wipers. Dealer claims it was a faulty wiper motor. I advised them I think it's a faulty tipm based on what I researched/read online. They assured me the tipm was working fine. When they ordered and installed the new wiper motor, it didn't fix the problem. They then admitted they were wrong with the diagnostic and the tipm was faulty. They advised me that I need a new tipm and that all tipms are on nationwide back order. Seems tipm failure is a recurring theme amongst certain Jeep Wrangler models. If your lights and wipers can go out while operating the vehicle, this is a huge safety hazard. I called Chrysler to complain and have yet to hear back from them.

Sunday April 4th, 2009 the temperature was a high of 73 and on April 5th, 2009 the high was 49. I own a 2007 Jeep Wrangler sahara with approx. 27K miles. After out running errands and using the defrost, I noticed a small crack at the bottom of the passengers side of the wind shield. When I noticed the crack it was approx. 3 " long, and ran from bottom to top, since then it has begun to curve towards the drivers side by about 1". I have taken the vehicle to two dealers and both have dismissed it has a rock chip. One service manager told me that even the smallest rock chip is enough to crack the windshield. He traced the crack with a writing pen and determined it was not a stress issue but a "rock hit". the other service manager rubbed her finger over the crack and determined it to be a "rock hit", both service managers did state that the "rock hit" could have been already present and the current temperature change could have caused the crack. One service manager did say that if the "rock hit" was not present he could fix it under the current warranty. I came home a did a google search and found several complaints about the 2007 Jeep and it's windshield.
