2012 Patriot total shutdown.

Unread post by Roadwarrior » March 28th, 2013, 9:29 pm

Bought my misses a Patriot last year, has now got 12500kms on it. A week before the first service was due she experienced a total shutdown of the vehicle while driving. It started straight away and all was good.Jeep dealer put it on the computer but nothing could be found. In the mean time I found a forum in the U.S where 2011 and 2012 models are experiencing the same thing and it doesn't seem to be restricted to the Patriots but the Wranglers in some cases too.
This week the dealer asked us to drop it back in as the technical guru from Melbourne was in town and wanted to download updated software into the EVIC (engine management system). Just interested if anyone has had same prob.

Just updating this thread. The shutdown problem was fixed but now with 43 000kms it now requires a transmission rebuild. It will be done under warranty.
