Customer Question
My AC comes on...

My AC comes on late. Takes about 1 minute before it kicks on, and for a while, about a month, the heater wouldn't work, but it does now. The lights on the shifter do not work either. Everything else runs and works perfect. Any ideas? Thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The Park, Reverse, Drive on the base of the shifter.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jeep?

2013 Wrangler X

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Wrangler yourself? What have you tried so far?

No ... because the AC works, after a minute, and the heater as well (also after a minute), and the lights are minor ... I just keep driving it. Thought there may be a common problem with other Jeeps. Was guessing a computer issue.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No ... that's it - thanks

Is it taking 1 minute for the AC compressor to come on or for the bower to start working?
