problem #3

  • 40,000 miles
The contact owns a 2001 Jeep Cherokee. The contact stated that the security system alarm kept sounding in the vehicle. The alarm, horn, and all the lights would activate. The contact would have to wait 30-45 minutes before the failures would stop. The failure occurred while driving or when the vehicle was parked. The dealer installed a new battery to correct the failure. The dealer placed a key in the ignition switch and the key became stuck. The dealer also installed a new computer, which did not remedy the failure. The computer was pronounced as defective and another one was ordered. The replacement computer did not correct the issue either. The manufacturer stated that they would not be able to assist if the failure could not be duplicated. The current mileage was 44,404 and failure mileage was approximately 40,000.

Horn failure żż this is not the first occasion of this event. The interstate traffic was at stopped due to a wreck and a semi truck attempted to make a lane change. I attempted to signal that the lane was occupied by blowing the car horn and after pressing on the horn logo in the center of the steering wheel nothing happened. I tried multiple times and still nothing. Luckily the driver of the semi finally looked and stopped before pushing my car into the center concrete divider. It is a very frustrating feeling to see an impending cash and to have no means to alert other drivers.

The horn can only be sounded in a certain small area on the steering wheel, it has to be forcefully compressed with the heel of the hand for it to sound. Nlm
