Now the jeep itself drives great and the engine seems good enough. But the ONLY electronic feature on the jeep, the cruise control, seems to be screwed up beyond repair.
It is still under warranty so this is Chrysler's problem, not mine
. But I am extremely curious if I am alone on this problem. So I'll describe what I'm experiencing, and the lengths my local dealership has gone to try to fix it.
Problem: Basically the ON/OFF button is unreliable. Sometimes it works great, other times it don't. When it is in the mood to work the cruise control works fine, except for the cancel button being just as picky. What is most curious is I have never had any problems with the other buttons on my jeeps steering wheel.
Failed Fixes: It has been looked at by a dealership 5 times. Each time they confirmed the problem then replaced a part, suspecting that part is faulty. So if Im not mistaken they have installed:
2 x steering wheel button switch
2 x clockspring
1 x steering wheel wiring harness
They just put the steering wheel harness in after keeping my jeep overnight, I was optimistic that would fix it, but it hasn't.
Of course I'll be seeing the dealership again, I am not letting this go by unfixed. Not sure how because the dealership has admitted to me that they have no clue what the problem is. Any wise folk on here got a suggestion? In Canada here I don't believe there are any actual lemon laws, any idea how I can protect myself from getting stuck with this problem after warranty runs out? Its a paid for feature, and my right to demand that it works.
