  1. Sensor work around with doors off?

    I asked the owner of Z Automotive about this just last week, and he still hopes to offer a solution for this *eventually*. There is a programming issue that has been proving hard to nail down. Unfortunately no ETA.
  2. Parksense Question

    You can permanently turn off or quiet the Park Sense in the settings on the multi-function display. It's in a category with the word "Safety..." in it.

  4. How to make 3rd brake light flicker?

    The latest Z Automotive TazerJL firmware updates include the feature of flashing the 3rd brake light. Seems like no more than 4 slow flashes won't get you in trouble in most states. Your mileage may vary in this regard...

    They're limited to 95 mph - they're just gonna get there faster! They're in the premium gas area too - the "if you have to ask . . ."
  6. 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 V8 - Specs, Wallpapers, Videos!

    I've had 4 jeeps with 2-doors, stick shift, and YELLOW -- I guess I'm safe from this thing.

    they said 21.5 gallon tank, but of course no mileage.. my v6 gets maybe 14 "city" so . . .

    That's how I feel. But no yellow and no stick. I've owned 4 yellow jeeps with stick. Fuck.
  9. Clicking noise when turning.

    So here's my update. The clicking has largely disappeared since they re-torqued a bunch of bolts in the front-end. I never proceeded with replacing any parts (and definitely not the axle!). For the person with the recent question - no clicking felt through the steering wheel (nowhere near...
  10. Sensor work around with doors off?

    He seems to be stalled out on it, although the last word was that he had a few hundred already manufactured. The hold-up is that every few days the Jeep throws an error because it thinks the doors are on (because of the device) but it never gets any notifications that the doors have been...
  11. Clicking noise when turning.

    They felt good that they isolated the nose to the U-fitting at the end of the axle. He also said changing out a Jeep axle is a really easy job. They don't have to open the front differential at all -- just remove some fitting near the middle that holds it all together then one bang with a...
  12. Clicking noise when turning.

    I posted the results of the visit to the dealer just now - interested in your opinion. They insist not the crown nuts - tightened, over tightened - still the click. They want to replace the axle.
  13. Clicking noise when turning.

    Ok, so a mechanic who genuinely seems to be a “Jeep guy” just tightened and torqued my front end. He and another tech together worked on it, and decided the front axle needs to be replaced. They tightened the ball joint crown nuts like I asked; and said that did not resolve the click. I’m not...
  14. Clicking noise when turning.

    Haha or replace the radio! Thanks for the comforting words. I don’t mind if shit needs “adjusting” just don’t want big problems down the road. This is my 4th Wrangler over the years - I’ve had excellent results with this every one!
  15. Clicking noise when turning.

    So I'm taking my 2019 JL in Wednesday for the click sound. I'm an optimist, so I'm going to hope it's just the torquing/tightening of the ball joints. I have about 6K miles on it, purchased Feb 2019. The clicking has gotten more pronounced over time, but still doesn't sound very terrible. I...
  16. Sensor work around with doors off?

    To me other cars sound like a whoosh of air — guess that’s why they have developed elaborate systems to help us with an issue you, happily, don’t have.
  17. Sensor work around with doors off?

    I think that's incredible un-true. With doors-off, the wind noise is very loud, even at moderate speed, let alone whether the driver has a radio or music going. On the highway, it's flat-out ridiculous. Separating the noise of your own (off-road) tires and your wind from the sound produced by...
  18. Sensor work around with doors off?

    ...I have a suggested trick for all of us: clearly the designers rarely try to disconnect the door harnesses — that f’in connector is a bitch to get open it’s so tight. I figured out that if I open the latch and then close the little sliding lock — when I close the latch it isn’t able to go...
  19. Sensor work around with doors off?

    Very good. You’re better off with his product. He was able to source the female plug of the harness in our JL’s (a mystery to me how that’s done!) so his device just plugs in when our doors come off :)

    I wouldn't want someone to share my work product like that, sorry.
