Between 45-50mph the rear locker light started flashing?

Now with today being day 9 of ownership it has happened 5 different times... I showed the videos I took to the service advisor & service manager ... Jeep goes in Tuesday, hopefully by now they know how to fix it.

Been off-road at all? This is a somewhat common issue but from what I have read mostly occurs due to water causing an issue with rear locker wiring.

Yep bet you are going to get a whole new rear axle!!! Jeep’s QC process sucks…lol.. If they have to keep your Jeep for a couple of weeks make sure you get a free loaner car while they have it as the warranty covers the loaner!!

Checked the fuses are seated?
Yes, I went through all of them ... then I parked in the dirt put it into 4H then 4LO locked front & back drove 50' then disengaged everything & put it back into 2wd. Once I got up to 45-50mph the light started flashing again. Then it happened again last night.

No, we just got it when this started happening.

Yes, ... XR not ER ... lol

Had the appointment at my local CJDR ... and yes ... they are going to replace the whole axle. Seems crazy, but at least it will be fixed! :fingerscrossed:
