Hopefully you know how to fix your intermittent instruments by tweaking the pins for the round connector on the rear of the instrument panel.
However, I don't consider it a penance to continue with the Sahara, and I anticipate that it will do another eleven years/100K at minimal cost and with the same reliability if asked...
Great minds think alike. I can't think of anything that I'd want to replace it with.

I just started having the exact same issue a few days ago. Did you ever find out anything else about this?

Took mine to the dealers and its like they were expecting me. They replaced a chip as it was a computer issue not a transmission- phew. The ac is working a tad better but i dont think its the best still. I am not a AC person either so lucky cos i be taking it back and complaining again.

I made five trips to two different dealers (first one told me to let it break so they knew what to fix). The CVI was adjusted which burnt a clutch pac, forced a complete rebuild, then a temp sensor wiring fix and finally (speaking as an optimist) a computer replacement. The transmission has been shifting fine for 100 miles.

Yes, tell the dealership to look up the TSB report 21-000-10 Rev. A.

Was this on a new jeep? Your temp sensor- was it sometimes not showing the right temperature? I've had this happen once.. but i am assuming this would affect the ac performance? I know with my previous car(BMW) the temp sensor was broken and so the AC was not producing cold cos it said it was -40F outside... i lived in Florida and it was really 90F.

Hi there! I appreciate your comments, the bad thing is that we bought it at 37,000 miles. My husband just found out today after requesting from Chrysler that they replace the map sensor and throttle position sensor on a good-will basis, that they will not under any circumstance perform any work on our vehicle under those circumstances. Obviously, we're free to pay for it ourselves. He spoke to Nick at Chrysler who told him that we since we purchased the vehicle from a used car dealer (Ford dealership) that we had no loyalty to Chrysler (there's a Dodge neon in my driveway and we have previously owned a Jeep Grand Cherokee AND I have waited my entire life to be able to have a jeep wrangler. I have always wanted one-how's that for loyalty) therefore they did not feel compelled to repair the vehicle at their expense.
They had the gall to say that they were unaware of any such problems with their vehicles and their transmission problems! LIARS! Do they even track what people are using their warranties for? My husband suggested that he take a peek at a few of these forums and ask himself if the vehicle was engineered to fall apart just outside the warranty period or if it was just a vehicle defect not expected to make it too far outside the dealership parking lot.
unbelievable. we're putting a for-sale sign in it today. we will never own a Chrysler product again. too bad too because they could REALLY use the business!

This is on a 2006 Unlimited. So far so good after the computer change. The temp sensor was sending mixed signals to the computer (the little trollop). I'm still a bit baffled with the bad shifting/temperature correlation. I think my next jeep will be a CJ5, something I can troubleshoot.

We have a 2005 Jeep Wrangler, what can you tell me about the "steering (death wobble) issue" as refred to in your last post? We definately have it! Is there a recall or more information? I've had tires balanced and rotated to no avail.
