I am not sure they have it completely figured out yet, but The dealership that I took my Jeep to just called and said they think it's the "steering rack." I am pretty sure Wranglers don't use rack and pinion steering so I have no idea what they are replacing. I tried to call them back to get better info but now I can't get a hold of my service advisor. I will let you know what I find out when I talk to him. We will see if whatever they are replacing takes care of my problem. It seems like each person that has this issue gets a different "fix."This just happened to me. Temp was 28f outside. Jeep was warmed up. In a slight left hand curve in the road and the steering got stuck. I was driving maybe 40-45mph
Have they figured this out?
Did you have any play in your steering in warm weather? It will be interesting to see if they fix is simply a looser gearbox.I finally got a hold of the service advisor, I guess he meant the steering gear. So that is what they are replacing.
I can't say that I noticed any play/dead spots that were any different from my JK.Did you have any play in your steering in warm weather? It will be interesting to see if they fix is simply a looser gearbox.
I personally have about a 1" dead spot / play in hot/warm weather and now in the cold weather id day it's at least 0.25" better.
Well it's back again this year. Did it on the way home from work today. It's been in the mid 30's all day. I park in the garage so I didn't experience it on the way to work, but after sitting in the cold temps it did it on the way home until it got warmed up.
Hi WalkingJL and John,I experienced several instanced of momentary lockup (about 1/2 of sec or so) of the wheel while in a curve. I have 2019 JL Rubicon. It is very unpleasant. It has ~7500 miles.
