I believe the steering fix has been identified... I think it's basically turning up a knob on the power steering system. Should be a few threads on it somewhere.Another tick mark for this issue, 100 miles, 1 day old. This plus the crazy loose steering is creating a fair amount of regret.
Is it this...I believe the steering fix has been identified... I think it's basically turning up a knob on the power steering system. Should be a few threads on it somewhere.
Wow, nice catch on this. I'm going to try this every time I start it. As I noted in the thread the dealer sees this on all of the V6 with the 8 speed transmissions, i.e. they see it on the Cherokees as well which means it is "by design" so there is nothing to fix.I experimented with my vehicle a bit and believe I found what the noise is related to. In my vehicle it only seems to occur when the brake pedal is pressed upon(such as when starting the vehicle from inside but not remote start). If I put hardly any pressure on the brake when starting then it doesn't do it either.
Hi there,I have the same issue on my 2018 durango,had the starter and torque converter replaced,nil help.Wow talk about timing! I just got the answer today!!
My JL Sahara is at the dealer now for a couple of things to be gone over. I mentioned this to the head of the service dept and he said he knew about it. He went out to the lot and produced the same chirp/squeal on the Grand Cherokees that had the engines warm, which have the same V6 and 8 speed tranny.
He said it happens on Jeeps that have the ESS setup... i.e. the Cherokees and the JL Wranglers. Believe it or not it's not the belt or starter like most people think. It comes from somewhere in the bell housing of the tranny, or in that general vicinity.
They spoke to Chrysler HQ and they basically said it is what it is. It's inherent to the design. I wouldn't sweat it, it's either going to become a serious issue that needs to be addressed or it will just be a Jeep Thing.
BTW... he is going to show me how to shut that stupid ESS off without having it disable the automatic start or have a warning light on the dash.
Nope still there and as random as ever. Haven't disabled the ESS since then you get a little warning light on the dash, and my OCD will not allow that It would be interesting to see if some of the guys who have a Tazer and have disabled ESS are seeing this.Hi there,I have the same issue on my 2018 durango,had the starter and torque converter replaced,nil help.
Did you manage to dissable the ESS and has the squeal gone away?
