Renegade Trailhawk 2.4L 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,000 miles

By the love of all that is holy, in whatever you believe in, if you are reading this - AVOID THIS CAR LIKE A PLAGUE! So among ALL the problems this car has this is just one of them.

Soon after buying the car the DRL sensor went off. I replaced the bulb - it was fine for a day. The next day, DRL sensor went off again. I knew it wasn't the bulb so I went to tighten it. It was tight as it can go. I gave it a little tap and it turned on. I reinstalled it and started driving, hit a bump, and it went out again. I knew it couldn't be the light so I took the pig tail off and swapped it from the passenger side to the driver side, removed any rust, and added electric grease before installing the bulb again.

The problem again continued - the only conclusion was to replace the light socket pig tail but they don't sell that piece individually. Obviously, because why would they? So you have to purchase an entire DRL hub assembly which is 140 plus labor. I got an after market one online and installed it myself. It's worth noting when the DRL light goes out, the sensor for the parking light goes off as well, even though the parking light is fine.

Problem 10 of 12: It seems monthly that I am replacing one of the headlights. They graciously take turns going out. I have replaced both sides at least 3 times each since the car was purchased in July 2015. UGH!!! I hate this car! I hate the lazy asses who apparently built it on a Friday wanting to go home early! I hate Victorville Motors for lying to me about the warranty! I hate FIAT/JEEP/CHRYSLER Corporation for not doing anything about this crappy electrical design flaw! May the flees of 1,000 camels infest all their crotches!
