  1. 4xe Check Engine Light Issue (CEL)

    I've also had the CEL lights pop up twice now, which I know are tied to charging (though I've not yet brought it to the dealer, though it sounds like similar symptoms). In both cases the charging (Chargepoint @ 32a) quit within the first 10 minutes or so (with the battery mostly dead), and the...
  2. Question for new 4XE owners, is this normal?

    Just an update as it's been a bit now. Have just over 1,200 miles on it, and while it still occasionally happens, it does appear to be quieting down a bit. Originally for the first few hundred miles it was seriously loud when it occurred, though it seems to have settled down considerably. It's...
  3. When <1%, it is better to leave in Hybrid or move to eSave to start recharging?

    E-Save has two modes, one to 'maintain' the charge, and one to 'actively' attempt to charge. Both of these modes will try to charge via regenerative braking, though the active charging mode will use the engine to try to boost the charge. Keeping in mind that the engine is probably at most 40%...
  4. Dumb Question, "idling" in electric mode.

    I’ve noticed that accessory mode does turn off at 30 minutes, and in accessory mode no heat or A/C work. though with the ignition in run mode & ‘electric’ mode selected (no engine running), heat and A/C both work. Heater is definitely electric (though maybe there’s a dual system depending on...
  5. Dumb Question, "idling" in electric mode.

    Not a dumb question at all, I was interested in this but couldn't find it as well. After 2+ weeks with mine, all A/C & Heat functions work under EV mode. So yes, A/C does in fact run in EV mode (even at a stoplight), and same for heat (+seats, etc). Granted, you do use power from the larger...
  6. Question for new 4XE owners, is this normal?

    Took it in again today, this time it cooperated and made the noises. Dealer agreed it sounded different, and also agreed on the description of a compressor-type sound (ie, not engine itself). They happened to have another 4xe on the lot which they checked, and it too made similar sounds. Though...
  7. Wrangler 4XE Drive Modes Analysis

    After ~2 weeks of driving (heavily using the EV functionality), the best example I have was starting at <1% on the dash (to the point that the ICE had just started running on it's own). My Chargepoint registered 15.54kWh added in 2h31m (charging slows at the end). This aligns pretty closely with...
  8. Question for new 4XE owners, is this normal?

    Just a quick update, so of course yesterday this sound was reoccuring *every* time I started the engine (even warm starts, which is something new), and today at the dealer it was silent... #MurphysLaw Have a follow-up appt on Monday morning to try again, as I'm not willing to leave it there...
  9. How's the steering on the 4xe?

    I originally test drove a 2018 JLUR (and actually had 2 orders placed that were never delivered, long story), but I remember the steering feel on the test drive actually being pretty bad. Once the dealer couldn't deliver on the second order, I backed out for a bit and watched the steering...
  10. Question for new 4XE owners, is this normal?

    I didn't realize that this was even a thing, but googling/reading about it makes perfect sense with what I'm seeing. It definitely sounds like an electric compressor, stops around a minute after engine starting, though it's strange that it doesn't always happen. This morning was colder than it...
  11. Driving the 4xe, thoughts, info and more!

    I hardwired my ChargePoint, and pretty much maxed out the amperage on the install for this reason. Remember that you can only use 80% of the breaker rating, so a 40 amp circuit provides 32 amps to the car (the 4xe is limited to 32 amps which is pretty common, though Tesla’s can go to 48 amps...
  12. Question for new 4XE owners, is this normal?

    Was thinking about this more, and have a question for you. What type of overall range do you see on the dashboard after filling up? I noticed that on mine, the computer shows a max range of around 275 miles (filled and nearly topped off battery), which seems a bit low to me. If it was an exhaust...
  13. Charge Times - What are you seeing?

    Level 2 charging is nice, it can add decent range even if you only have 30-60 minutes to charge it. Here’s a plot from my ChargePoint, the 4xe is capped at 32 amp charging, and for this charge it was completely dead. I’ve charged it probably 15 times already, and this was the longest one (most...
  14. Question for new 4XE owners, is this normal?

    Yeah, I agree. Appointment set for next week. The upside of having the sound is that it’s taught me to try to drive in EV only, so while it has 400 miles on it already, the engine only has 100 or so. 😁
  15. Question for new 4XE owners, is this normal?

    Yeah, it does in a way. But it disappears completely around when the engine warms up. I think it’s probably time to have it looked at.
  16. Question for new 4XE owners, is this normal?

    Here's an example video, though the video doesn't come across quite as loud as it does in person. Interestingly after around a minute or so, the compressor type noise goes away, and the 2.0L engine sound appears normal after that (drove it for an hour on the engine alone, and the sound didn't...
  17. Question for new 4XE owners, is this normal?

    Yeah, it happens often enough that I'm sure I can grab a video, but might be a day or two as the engine seems to need to be cold to trigger it (and then you have to be ready as it goes away in a minute or so). It literally sounds like an electronic compressor (just much louder), and shuts back...
  18. Question for new 4XE owners, is this normal?

    Question for new 4XE owners, When you first start the 2.0L engine (assume a depleted battery, or switching to eSave mode, for example), how loud is the engine when it first starts up? Reason I ask is I just too delivery of a JLUR 4xe, though when the engine first starts there's around a 60...
  19. How long is "In Transit" time?

    This is basically what I've come to terms with, I see three possibilities for why they would be holding it: It's waiting on parts - Though I would have thought that JS status meant it's complete? FCA stated that it's waiting on inspections or shipping, though the dealer is saying that it's...
