    Rebooting

    My apologies, I am not very technical (aka knowledgeable) when it comes to Jeep terminology. Bear with me lol


    I have had the Jeep for 1 month, and recently my dashboard reboots in the morning. The pattern I have noticed is that it only happens when the outside temp is below say 23 degrees Fahrenheit. It is somewhere between 20 and 25 degrees, but I will call it 23. I do not have an engine block heater, I do have the cold weather group. I try to remote start when the temp is really cold, but it happens whether I remote start or push button. The other Jeep functions do not seem affected by it at all. The Sirius keeps playing, the lights stay on, no rough engine running. As I am driving, the screen behind the steering wheel will shut off and reboot itself over and over while the hands on the RPM and speedometer seem to be stuck in the OFF position until the engine temp bar hits just below the halfway mark. Roughly 3/4 of the way up between that half mark and the line immediately below it. When the engine warms to that temp, the console reboots itself one more time, the RPM and speedometer hands swing up and back, and everything is normal for the rest of the day. The first few times the process fixed itself within 2-4 miles of travel. This last time I went about 13 miles before it set itself, but it was much colder.. like 14 degrees that day.


    Has this happened to anyone else and/or is it something to be "concerned' about.. meaning should I contact my dealer to have it checked out?

    I would have the dealer check it out, its a new Jeep. In the mean time, make sure your battery cables nuts are tight on the battery.

    A bad sensor did that to my wife's car. Airbag, I think it was. Something is geeking out the system, I suspect. Surprised you don't have a check-engine light.

    You donít by chance have a programmer attached to your system like a Procal or Tazer, some with the 8.4 Uconnect system have reported looping ( rebooting ) with the 8.4 and using a programmer, also check to ensure all fuses are fully seated, I stopped counting when I got to 20 that were not fully seated
    My insurance company asked me if my Jeep was modified and of course I said no...

    Thanks all I do not have a tazer or other programmer. The dealership is coming to pick it up from my house on Thursday, take it to have a look at it, and nano-coat it for me while they have it. Supposed to get it back on Friday so we will see.

    Your dealer picks the car up at your house? My dealer sucks! Will have to call them and tell them to pick it up.

    They are afraid of the liability. If itís doing that, it could do anything. And cause a wreak. A good decision on there part.

    Well that makes sense. I thought your dealer was offering valet service.

    Well they also picked up the Yellow Jeep just to take it for nano-coating as well. They just do that as a service... maybe because they are an hour away from my house? I don't know. They bring me a loaner Jeep (but never a Wrangler.. last time I had a Grand Cherokee, the sales lady said it is her demo-car). Their guy drives to my house in the morning, he trades Jeeps with me, and then brings mine back later that evening and we trade vehicles again.

    Nice dealer! Glad some are going the extra mile. Been sense I had a caddy that I even got a loner car, and never had one delivered. Good of them.
