  1. Wind deflector for the Sky One-Touch Roof?

    I tried something similar with my last go around. It didn't help that much, but that last fin sticks out much more than what I tried. I then purchased an Aerolidz. That worked better but still not great. It eliminated the wind buffeting on the soft top, but still I still had a fair amount of...
  2. 2018+ Jeep JL Rear Axle Breather Tube (Plugged from Factory)

    Yep. Nearly blew my cheeks off my face with no luck. Tried to bluntly puncture and put compressed air into it just because I was curious. I didn't get a pressure reading, but it's absolutely amazing how much pressure those pill bottle type seals can take. I imagine all the wadding that was...
  3. 2018+ Jeep JL Rear Axle Breather Tube (Plugged from Factory)

    I ran into something today and I thought I'd post a word of warning. I noticed that my rear pinion seal on my JL was leaking, dripping, and generally causing a mess in my garage and on the undercarriage. Checking the usual culprits, I looked to see if the breather tube was clogged and indeed...
  4. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    This is very similar to what happened to me. Wipers, dash lights flashing, etc, and run button to turn off did nothing. I had to disconnect both negatives at the battery terminal to shut it off. If you want to try and diagnose yourself there a a couple simple things you can try: 1.) Make...
  5. Autopark Got Me

    FWIW - If I'm not mistaken, the Tazer setting to turn off AutoPark will also turn off the backup sensors (if you have them). I ran into this, but I suppose its possible there are two different flags/settings, one that turns off AutoPark only and one that turns off AutoPark + Other stuff, and I...
  6. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    As you mention, if your switch is hooked up to ACC/Run only power then that can't be cause, unless you have a relay stuck open in the PDC. If the switch was on, then you may be onto something. When my CAN-BUS was shorting, the vehicle would not turn off if running, and even if just in ACC/Run...
  7. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    Harvs, sorry you are having to go through this. It's very frustrating and the I believe the simple truth is that most dealerships (at least here in the US) don't really know how to diagnose and troubleshoot electrical issues. I don't know why they can't diagnose a simple short or a parasitic...
  8. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    Jay, that was an awesome and very thoughtful explanation. Thank you so much for taking the time! I can confirm that CAN-BUS is indeed twisted pair. In my own case what was happening is that the pair had been shorted together and each of the + and - were reading 2.5v. So with no differential...
  9. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    I missed that. Makes perfect sense to me based on my own experience. What's surprising is that most techs at most dealerships really have no idea how to work through electrical issues. Most of the skills are in turning wrenches on more mechanical issues. They end up calling FCA Star (or...
  10. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    When I had a short on the CAN-C, my infotainment was locked out too. It said it needed the VIN/PIN combo, but when the short was diagnosed and unhooked from the star control block, it came back to life. I'd be a little worried that this is just a symptom of the root cause short. I'd even be...
  11. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    I took another look at the CAN-BUS C wiring diagram. Most (if not all of those) are from CAN-BUS C. I had a similar report on mine, but about half the length. When I had an issue it was EPS (C3 Connector), but the Sway Bar Disconnect (C12) is somewhat notorious from what I have read. as several...
  12. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    My money is still on something shorting out at CAN-BUS C. The star connector behind the glove box has all the goodies plugged into it and one short tends take everything down. All of these are on that BUS; Cluster, Power Steering Pump, Occupant Restraint Controller, Powertrain Control...
  13. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    Exactly. I just got through dealing with a similar issue on my JL. The EPS was replaced with PSC hydraulic steering and ram. The CAN-BUS C3 (EPS connection) was shorting out and the JL went absolutely nuts with every system failing. I couldn't even turn the JL off. I had to disconnect both...
  14. My 2020 Jeep Rubicon “JLUR” could have killed me and my family this weekend.

    It may not be the speakers. Mine does it too, but continues to do it after the door harness is unplugged, so it's probably not electric. Worth checking.
  15. Atlas JL Transfer Case

    Just wanted to close the loop. In the end, after much back and forth and involving Jeep Cares, a new TC was covered under warranty. I won't get into all the details on this thread, but the nightmare's continued with service department (Rairdon's Kirkland, WA), and I didn't get my jeep back for...
  16. Atlas JL Transfer Case

    That's good suggestion, and I just might try it to delay the expense and the inevitable for a while... It's certainly a great trail fix. As amazing as JBWeld is, I tend to think that it would eventually come undone...
  17. Atlas JL Transfer Case

    The weird thing is that I see the video of the JL bolt-on Atlas TC from Sema 2019, but I can't seem to find the actual product for sale anywhere on the website... (Maybe I'm blind). It would be good to get confirmation that it actually exists for the JL. Bonus would be getting a review.
  18. Atlas JL Transfer Case

    Yep, despite being barely visible, it's leaking and collecting in the skid below. Matter of fact, if it wasn't for the skids, I might not have even noticed as it only seems to only drip while running. I.e. It's on the highway and trail, but not my garage floor...
  19. Atlas JL Transfer Case

    +1 I am super interested as well. Hoping to get a report from someone that has actually installed it. I found out today that I have a hairline crack in frontside of my 2019 JL Rubi T Case. I've never hit it (it has skids), nor the front drive shaft, nor bounced my JL. It only has 12k miles...
  20. Wind deflector for the Sky One-Touch Roof?

    I did (sort of) in my first attempt, by not cutting as much of the 4" baseboard off. I started with a 3" wide strip. It didn't help as much, and I believe it was because at that length the rubberized baseboard material would flex and flatten more (not as rigid), as it got further away from the...
