Well Im giving the dealership one last chance to fix my jeep. It has been stalling on the freeway ever sense I put maybe 5k miles on it. Sometimes wont happen for 5k miles, other times it will happen anytime I go maybe 100miles on it. Has never happened while driving around town, and has never happened while going up a steep grade.
It first feels like Im hitting a head wind, kinda lugging and wont stay at a constant speed, I have learned to pull into the right hand lane when this happens and maybe 5mins after that starts the whole jeep will loose all electrical and shutdown.....After maybe another 3 sec the dash will light up again. I have to pull over and turn it completely off and then it will turn on again like nothing has happened. This has happened maybe 8-10 times so far and I have even tried restarting it after the 3 sec's when electrical comes back on while its still rolling, it will start but lug with no power and then shut off again.
No check engine lights stay on, other then after the 3 sec after it stalls and electrical comes back, it will light up like a Christmas tree... The dealer does seem to see this as a huge problem and has been looking at it for a whole day so far and will prolly keep it for another (hasnt found the problem as over this afternoon).
It seems obvious that its a electrical issue and dont expect the dealer to find the problem other then start replacing parts, I told them to keep it untell they fix it....
I know there was a stall TSB on the early 07's but they checked for it and the Vin doesnt show anything needed. If they give it back to me without fixing the problem I will be selling or trading the jeep in for something that I can depend on.
I have over 15k worth of aftermarket parts on this Jeep that I know will never get back but am starting a new job that requires traveling and need something that will not just stall on me for no reason. I have been lucky that I havent been boxed in my semi's when this happens or I can potentially cause a huge accident.
Anyone else have this happen? I have never read of a problem like this with anyone elses jeep. Only other thing I can do it buy another JK and swap all my aftermarket parts and sell it as stock but that will take time and energy I dont have.
