My newest problem is that the A/C fan or motor is excessively loud when turned up to 50% or more. Does anyone else experience this? Oops. I guess I should make a separate thread. I plan to take my Commander and get the windshield noise checked too.
Ours did the same thing, but through all the fan speeds. Took it in, they found some of the fan blades broke. Replaced the fan and no trouble now.

My Commander is getting fixed right now to reseal the windshield. I called the dealer to schedule an appointment and they knew exactly what was wrong and how to fix it. They said they just fixed another commander the day before. They said it was a 17-page repair problem so they'd have my car for a few days.

HemiCommander - I feel those same minor jolts when driving too. I'm not sure if it happens when the A/C is on or what. I noticed it most recenlty during our 12 hour drive to PA this past weekend. It's extremely minor and I didn't think anything of it. I actually thought it was me being paranoid but I'm glad I'm not the only one who has that problem. Has anyone else noticed this? I have the 4.7L 4X2 Limited.

Thanks for the fan and windshield info.

My Jeep is at the local dealer now, I dropped it off Wed morning, and they said they hope to have it done Thursday afternoon.

We'll see how it turns out.

Some piece had apparently fallen off inside the dash area and fallen into the fan. They removed that piece and the fan works fine again.

They could not identify the whistling sound, and it has been very sporadic, so no attempted fix. I'll bring it in again if it occurs.

It seems as though they put weak *** fan blades in these. It's about 92 degress here (with 275% humidity) and wife calls to tell me her dash is vibrating ALOT when she uses the AC/heat.

After checking it out there is def. something either loose or not attached anymore in the blower motor cage area.

with a forecast of higher temps, and since my dealership is booked for another week solid I hope she does'nt destroy it totally. I poked around to maybe "patch it" lol alot of junk to get through it seems, and parts would be a quest.

windshield whistle noise

Totally upset! Purchase a new Commander on 7/2 and the day we test drove we heard the windshield whistle. Were told it just needed to be driven, broken in. B S! Whistle noise occured off and on anytime between 50mph-85mph. Had it at dealership day and a half, windshield was resealed (so they say), but still have the problem today and picked it up from the dealership today. Called, and of course svc dept closed until Monday........does anyone know if it is better to get the windshield replaced or resealed again??????

Chryslers Engineers have a fix for it. The dealership needs to contact them. There is a apoxy to seal the windshield.

Does anyone know the TSB that applies to re-sealing the windshield?

My noise was only fleeting, but I know it will come back, and when it does, I want the proper ammunition to make sure they fix it this time.

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know how long it takes for the windshield to be "set"/ "dried" after it has been resealed? And from all the research we have done, it does not appear there is a TSB for the resealing of the windshield. The dealer knew all about it when I called and set the appt.....but unfortunately it does not seem to have fixed our problem.

whistle-Commander

The whistle is a sensor, not the a.c. or the windshield. If you drive before 8:00 a.m. CST or after dark, the whistle does not occur. It only occurs from 60+ mph and during warmer temperatures. Those of you who have had the windshield fix or the a.c fix will continue to experience the whistle (scream) unless yours is an air leak. An air leak is not the sound that I am experiencing.

I can tell you it's not a sensor and I can even prove it to you if you have a sunroof. Wait until the whistle starts. When it does, open the sunroof and reach out and touch the channel at the top of the windshield with your finger (you may need to raise your seat up a bit to reach it). The whistle either changes pitches or stops. The reason it doesn't happen after dark is because it's cooler outside after dark. This also proves it's not an air leak. It's a whistling caused by the air passing over the top of the windshield. It does sound like some sort of sensor gone haywire. That's what my wife thought it was at first.

Sorry, sensors don't whistle.
