No. It’s a PSC PN# PK1880 about $1,400.00 + Mini Tazer $329.00 to override the program. That does not include labor.Is the power steering pump replacement aftermarket, or FCA ?
Ditto on the first sentence, luckily the second sentence doesn't apply to mine, it steers great, and after the Rubicon suspension swap and new Mopar longer LCAs is still steers superb!My JL has the 3.6/8 speed tranny, absolutely love it. If only the steering and related components were as good.
In a way I’m glad that I encountered the initial problems with my JL. If I hadn’t I would not have had the work done; Synergy Trk Arm, D Link, T Rod, Fox SS, Falcon Shocks and the Grabber ATx. My JL just eats up the HWY now and I’ve had off road, even the wind buffing is dramatically reduced, all but gone!. The potential in these new Jeeps is greater than I would have thought.Ditto on the first sentence, luckily the second sentence doesn't apply to mine, it steers great, and after the Rubicon suspension swap and new Mopar longer LCAs is still steers superb!
It’s very hard to diagnose because as you point out there may be issues in the linkage, at least with mine there were. The linkage in my JL is now all aftermarket as are the shocks. The system is rock solid and that’s evident in the way it handles, absolutely love it. So the problem in my JLU is somewhere in the power steering/gear box/programming. I’m going to be checking the amount of play in the box this weekend because I have to determine whether to get the PSC Pump conversion only or the Big Bore Kit.I get the philosophy behind the the dead spot being created by reduced/stop flow when going straight on the highway, but I don’t buy it as the reason.
I say that because I can turn it far enough to get real steering out and then immediately try it again the dead spot is still there, so it either instantaneously shuts off when you put the wheel straight, or that’s not the cause.
If I get a chance this weekend, I’ll throw the Jeep on the lift and physically turn the tires by hand while the steering wheel is being held still. If I can move the tires back and forth without the steering wheel moving, then the problem isn’t just a dead spot from the steering wheel side. It’s truly a dead spot in the entire system/linkage.
You know it’s so funny that you say that no test drive I saw this Jeep on the lot my wife and I fell in love with how it looked and just said yes we will take it I really just had the mindset it’s a Jeep what could go wrong I mean I just bought my son one 3 months prior these things are good right WRONG .....like he said test drive them .
I read your posts and I hear you! I’m going to tell you some of the details of what happened with mine so that you can better understand how and why I came to this point and why I’m doing the PSC steering system next and not holding my breath for a solution from FCA.My sons 2019 Jeep JL Rubicon has no steering issue at all but my 2020 is like you said my wife won’t drive either . Now granted I did put a lift on mine but I really tried to fix the steering with very expensive parts that have made the steering tighter but still has the dead spot in the top of the steering wheel that makes you over correct constantly. You can read my other post about this issue I have almost tried everything I’m still searching for some weird reason I can’t give up on this Jeep yet. I really love the Wrangler I have owned 4 with no problems like this . I know that Jeep will figure it out eventually but damn hurry up already.
I have the 4 Cylinder so PSC has no option for me yet ... Jeep is now telling me to remove my lift and aftermarket parts back to stock but they won’t tell me if they will replace the Jeep also I have spent about 2,000 to put this stuff on now you want me to spend an additional 2,000 to take it off and then when I get the new one pay to put it back on .
Now that really sucks!!Mine got the dead spot after they replaced the first steering box it only wondered before now it has both dead spot and wandering
Update... in preparation for the PSC system I checked the front end this morning here’s what I found:Now that really sucks!!
