I checked the fuses at delivery, as has been hammered on this site. About half of them were not seated. After I pushed them all down I went through them twice more, to make sure everything was tight. Two days after delivery I went on a 10 mile mile, easy, but pretty bumpy trail ride. After getting back I checked the fuses and relays again, about a third of them were not seated. Maybe Jeep should come up with better retention method than friction.Bec
Simply because no other vehicle currently available can meet our needs. Trust me had the Bronco was available with a solid year of sales under it’s belt we would have given it a very serious look.
I have owned several Jeeps and other FCA products. The 2020 JLUR was the first one to ever have issues. So taking a chance on a 2021 JLUR is not so much of a risk, at least no more then a first year Bronco would be.
I am also pretty convinced that the issues were originally caused by the improperly seated main engine box fuses that cause numerous shorts throughout the wiring system. This time I check the fuses after the PDI was done and the Jeep was pulled out front. Only four small fuses were not seated properly. The tech that did the PDI saw me doing this and apologized for missing those when he check the fuses. Yes, he said a “bunch” were not fully seated but that they now at his dealership check the fuses on during all PDIs to ensure proper install. I acquired my new 2021 JLUR from the dealership that handled the majority of the problems and that were extremely helpful during the buy back process, so they are aware of the possibilities.
Not many dealerships check the fuses for proper seat as it is not part of the official PDI process.
Sorry for the long winded response.
