2013 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #8

Oct 202016

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

  • 24,322 miles


Vehicle stalls at random times but most often when putting into reverse after sitting for a while. It has stalled while driving on major roads which could have been life threatening. The transmission also shifts very jerky at times for no real reason. The windshield wipers will come on randomly and usually seem tied to turn on the turn signals which happen to be on the other control knob. Lights will dim on nav/radio when windshield wipers are turned on. I would say there is an obvious electrical/computer issue that must be causing these things to happen. I have read hundreds of similar complaints.

Headlight harnesses go bad. Lights flicker, don't turn on without messing with harnesses or take a few seconds to minutes to turn on or change to high beams. Thus is while stationary or while in motion. Hitting bumps in the road also affect the lights flickering or turning off or on.

Vehicle upon leaving a store, (just began to rain hard), the lights, wipers, cruise control, horn, and all functions on the steering wheel and left and right stalk stopped working. I assume the airbag is also not functional. No codes were registered in the vehicle for malfunction either. It has been a week and it is still not functioning. Possibly the clock spring which was recalled for 2007-2012, but 2013+ vehicles were excluded even though it is the same part used in the later model vehicles. Huge safety hazard!

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

While driving my 2013 Jeep Wrangler, at cruising speed of 45 mph, the instrument panel started flashing random emergency icons. This flashing of the vehicles cluster along with speedometer and RPM gauge moving erratically continued for about 5 minutes until it stopped and only the traction control light remained on. I pulled over and turned off the vehicle. I restarted the vehicle, which seemed to fix the issue because the traction light turned off and everything seemed to be working. This is the first incident in which the lights flash continuously for several minutes, prior incidents had only flashed the cluster lights a couple of times and then they went back to normal. I contacted my dealership and they indicated they have only received reports of this issue on the Jeep Cherokee.
