2015 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #14

  • 15,000 miles


I own a 2015 Jeep Wrangler unlimited 4 door 4X4 automatic transmission. Intermittent loss of power and traction control light comes on... I wrote up a report a couple of weeks ago--but I understand the issue better now...so, my Jeep basically conks out--often at highway speeds...and re-starts in about 1 second...at least it feels like it conks out--all of the dash lights come on as they do when I first start the Jeep...but the traction control light stays on--does not blink and it has remained on since then...also the cruise control will not turn on...I have checked the fuses...and I have run an obdii diagnostic--the fuses are fine and the diagnostic finds nothing wrong I have read that this issue is occuring frequently on Jeep renegade and dealership says nothing is wrong. This occurs while the vehicle is in motion, on streets and on highways...while going straight and while turning...

Vehicle, in motion, on highways, and streets, shuts off. The lights go out, sometimes the radio turns off, the steering goes out, the gauges fall to zero...then, the battery light comes on, and the engine begins operating as usual. It feels as though someone has turned off the key and then turned the key back on.

Blinkers are not working. Took it to Jeep dealer and they said it was total integrated power module and would cost $511 for the part plus labor. The Jeep is less than 2 years old and should not have this type problem. Need a recall.

I was on a road trip traveling 70 mph on I90 with cruise control set when cruise control disengaged 3 times on its own then approximately 100 miles later the power outlet in dash caught fire (behind dash) and spread to the heater/ac control panel. I ended trailering my Jeep home. It is drivable but I took it to dealer to check it out (they called Chrysler (they're sending out their own investigators)). My Jeep just turned a year old and less than 4000 miles.

Defective car door locking systems sporadically fails to properly function. Unlocking mode is inoperable at times. This defect occurs at all times whether the Jeep is stationary or in motion. I have brought the Jeep for repairs numerous times and was advised by the dealership that it could not figure out how to fix this issue. The Jeep has been brought in for service at least four times due to the locking system. On the last service date, I was advised after my Jeep had been in the repair shop for a month, that the inoperable locking door mechanism was a safety feature despite it not appearing as a safety feature in the owner's manual guide. I requested from the manufacture documentation verifying that the inoperable locking mechanism was a safety feature. At this time, manufacture has failed to provide any documentation confirming that the inoperable locking mechanism is a safety feature.

There is a 1 to 2 second lag when pressing the horn button and when the horn actually sounds. With the lag, it is nearly impossible to sound the horn immediately when someone is encroaching into your lane or any other time when the horn needs to be sounded to prevent an accident.

When pushing the horn button in the middle of steering wheel, nothing happens for about 1/2 to 1 second, then horn sounds. Very dangerous when trying to call attention to a possible accident about to happen.

Horn delay! when pressing the steering wheel there is a noticeable delay in the horn sounding. At times I have needed the horn to alert someone wandering into my lane and a quick 'hit' to the wheel did not sound the horn. No other vehicle I've owned operates like this. Please get a fix to us owners. My 2013 Wrangler had the same issue. Still in 2015 it exits. Lots of internet chat about this safety issue on the Jeep / Chrysler forums.

There is a distinct delay between pressing the horn button (steering wheel) and activation/sounding of the horn. This delay can be over 1 second. This has been brought to the dealership's attention. They claim that it is working properly, when clearly it is not. Many times, I have tried to "beep" the horn to either avoid an incident, or otherwise, and it has never reacted as necessary.

I turned the key to start my vehicle and nothing happened, no lights on the dash, no 'ding', nothing. Dealership mechanics and technicians worked for two days to diagnose the problem and finally discovered that it was a faulty tipm.

About 30 minutes after midnight on a Thursday morning I was awoke by the sound of my dog barking and my sister walking into my room telling me there was a large glow in the driveway. After walking outside, we found my brand new 2015 Wrangler on fire with very large flames erupting from the hood. We quickly woke the rest of my family and rushed frantically to put it out. An hour later, after nearby neighbors arrived to help, and emergency services arrived to put out the fire (local fire department and police) the vehicle fire was doused and the Jeep was hauled off my property to a local towing yard. The fire seemed to have started around the battery area, but the source has yet to be determined. The fire claimed the entire engine compartment, most of the drivers dash board and drivers interior, and the entire front left tire/trim.

I bought the Jeep April 4, 2015. On July 19, 2015 I parked my car in the driveway and 3 hours later at 5:30 my dog work me up and I look outside and the whole front end of the Jeep was in flames. We were able to get the fire out but it was a total loss.

Driving on a four lane highway around 2pm. I had been driving for a solid hour on the same highway when my Jeep suddenly accelerated. The gas pedal proceeded to the floor even while I tapped and pressed pumping my brakes. I recall an initial odd feeling underfoot prior to the climbing acceleration. I felt the pedal pull away directly after I felt a vibration underfoot. I was not using cruise control nor was it engaged. The engine was cycling loudly and the RPM gauge was climbing in the red, I had no car mat in place because I spilled a protein shake a week earlier and it still smelled. I still checked visually to see if something somehow was obstructing the pedal. I had my hands on the top of the wheel per usual comfort spots. I was like, wait...what the hell is happening?? I had to press as hard as I could on the brakes while pulling the emergency brake up slowly to bring the open throttled car to a stop. I noticed just before turning off the car a red lightning bolt appeared on the dashboard. My new car was 4 weeks new to our family. I am an experienced driver who owned Jeep before in 1989. The gas pedal was so tightly pressed into the floor I could not get the tip of my shoe under to pull it up. I was taken for a death ride for 10 minutes. The car smelled like burning motor! if there was traffic this day I cannot think of the repercussions.
