Just picked up my 2018 JL 2-door Rubicon and within 100 miles I got the service shifter light. At the same time I noticed the light, I also opened the hood and it had a coolant smell. Needless to say I called the dealership that day and just dropped it off for service last night. One other issue I picked up was the “P,R,N,D” will not light up at the shifter. I am scheduled to be looked at tomorrow.
I read that others have had similar issues in the 4-door but I can’t seem to find any recent complaints like I have. Especially since the 2-door hit the market.
Anyone have similar issues? If so, resolutions were?
Thanks,

Jonny

Would not matter whether you had 2 dr or 4 dr in regard to the particular issues you are seeing.

For the coolant smell in the engine compartment, a couple of forum member's over the last few month's have posted they too had this. For them it was a fitting right by the coolant reservoir that was leaking.

You will see the coolant reservoir on the driver's side, engine compartment, up top. A reservoir with pinkish fluid visible in it.

As for the shifter light thing. Two here have had the issue, and the dealer ended up replacing that whole unit where you see the "P,R,N,D".

Was just thinking on your issues.... a while back one guy had the shifter light issue and all it was, was a connector not plugged in right.

Thanks for the input Rhinebeck. I just got a call from the dealership. It too was a connector in the bezel under the shifter that not plugged in. I will confirm this was the dolution ovEr the next few days. Fingers crossed.
As for the coolant smell... they didn’t find anything.
Thanks again

Understood... the reason I mentioned the 2-door and 4-door thing was that I hoped they resolved the issue prior to the 2-door being released. No biggie.
Again thanks for the help
