Jeep Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I had a broken front rocker bar--or some bar in front repaired by a reputable local mechanic shop. & I needed 4 new tires at the same time--
this was done back in august I think. Anyway they said I had 3 bad sensor that tell me when the tires are low. I decided I didn't need to spend >$100 to get them replaced so they used a replacement -not sure what it was . & I haven't had any issues till now
so the sensors that tell me the tires are low --that I no longer have are NOT the problem? so I a different set of sensors for wheel speed may be the problem? What I don't understand is I had driven the care off & on all that day w/ no problem with lights. I hop in the car for one last errand--this time while it is raining & these ESP/BAC lights come on. Oh I have pushed the ESP button on my panel a few times both before I went to the dealer & since with no changes. It strange with that dealer--they only had 2 stars of customer satisfaction compared to the 4& 5 I saw on others closer to home. But as I said I was on my way out of town..... unfortunately I am leaving to go out of town again Sunday tomorrow-so I either need to drive it like it is or use a dealer in that town. I keep going back & forth--I live in Indpls, in. My folks are in South Bend IN & we just put dad in Hospice so I won't likely be able to see the original dealer. :( for several weeks as I return only on weekends right now after service closes @ 3 :(
Thank you. so this also would be what is affecting my cruise working properly even though the light indicator says it is on?
I made some changes & will be able to be at my regular dealer's service center when they open in the morning.
This may sound strange-but should I let my dealer know what you suggested before they do their check-rather than direct them to a specific issue & maybe have another ignored?
BTW you have done great--if I submit & you are paid--do I pay again for us to continue this issue?
Yes, a failing wheel speed sensor will cause the cruise control to not work Janet. I think you should mention to the dealer that you suspect a wheel speed sensor issue. Then they can focus on that. It may help them with the diagnosis. Now I will continue to work with you even after you rate / accept my answer, and you will not need to pay me any extra.
Now I am confused--I just ran some errands & no idiot lights & cruise worked perfectly--HOWEVER the fuse is out for heating my seats & the one that I replaced yesterday for the adapter that used to be a cigarette lighter-if they still put them in cars. Yesterday when that was out so was electric plug-but not today. so now what--still take in ? or wait & see if it happens again. this was a 20 mi RT & my trip to Northern Indiana will be about 150miles but that shouldn't make a difference should it?? I'm thinking the fuses are just a coincidence--to confuse me !!!
