Customer Question
surfaces, or up an incline...
vehicle is a 2012 Cherokee Jet Limited. When on wet/loose surfaces, or up an incline covered in grass, the vehicle comes to a stop with a loud 'grinding' noise from either or both the front areas and the traction control light illuminates on the drivers panel. Is this normal?
JA: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?
Customer: Bought the vehicle a month ago, and only became aware of it when in the above conditions. Place we bought from says its normal- have a 3 month warranty on it. I think its coming from the transmission/ drivetrain system
JA: Are you fixing your Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No I'm not fixing myself, just trying to find out if such noises associated with the traction control are normal
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I think that is about all I have right now.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Its ounds as if you're describing the ABS system activating. If the brakes are applied hard enough to lock up then the ABS pump will activate to prevent lockup. If this only happens on a wet surface when braking and you hear a brief noise then you're almost surely hearing normal ABS pump operation.

I have a 2013 Hyundai i40 wagon, petrol motor. I live in
I have a 2013 Hyundai i40 wagon, petrol motor. I live in Fiji and in November last year, the A/C stopped working. They quoted $A4,400 to replace compressor! This seems outrageous to me, and most of the cost was in what they wanted to charge for the compressor - $A3,300. I have tried to find where I could source a compressor and have had a bit of trouble, as it seems this i40 may be a unique beast to Fiji! The agent tells me it is the only one in Fiji I have done my best to try and find a part number for the compressor, and the best I can come up with is that it is a Doowon DVE16 compressor. It has a number on the bottom of the ID plate that is: 1037E-05300###-##-#### Not sure if that is useful or not. The engine is of the G4NA series, and while I can find a compressor of this type with a place in Brisbane, it states that it is for a G4NC series. The VIN of my vehicle is: KMHLB81CMCU035784. Is there anything you can advise? I would like to purchase the A/C compressor either in Australia, or over the internet, but I need to be sure that it is the correct unit to fit. The vehicle is petrol...not diesel. … read more
