2008 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 012015


  • 170,000 miles


In 2009 my tipm failed and I experienced the 'possessed Jeep' condition where everything turned on (lights, turn signals, horn, radio blasting with no display). I took it to the dealer and they replaced free of charge (under 5 year warranty). In 2012 my rear brake calipers seized on both the passenger and driver side, they were glowing cherry-red after a 1 hour commute into work, perfect to start a fire if I had pulled into a gas station with some gas spilled on the ground or something. I got after-market calipers because the guy at auto zone said that he had several customers with the same issue that replaced it with factory calipers and they failed within 40000 miles, they went with after-market calipers and never had a problem, I have not had a problem since myself. Well now all of a sudden my horn, front passenger parking lamp/turn signal stopped working. There are no blown fuses or unhooked wires, everything is stock (I bought the vehicle brand new). At this same time, my passenger seat keeps coming unlatched and flying forward and back (as if someone were trying to enter the back seat). I can push the seat back into position, but it will fly forward all by itself at random. This started immediately with the horn and passenger parking lamp issue. This is dangerous and presents a choking hazard, especially if someone is sitting in the seat with the seat belt fastened. Since the horn has stopped working, I am concerned that my air-bag may not deploy (clock-spring issue) or if it is that tipm again. I don't think I should need to pay for yet another tipm this should be covered for the life of the vehicle since it is a safety hazard.
