2013 JKUR Automatic Transmission Noise

Howdy!

Got a new JKUR auto, love it. But I have this "whine" that increases with engine speed. I'm wondering if this is normal or if I should be concerned as it is fairly pronounced.

Not normal.

My 2013 JKUR auto doesn't whine.

It almost sounds like the radio is picking something up but it's not even on.

Mine only does it in second gear. Fist, third, fourth and fifth make no noise. It's only second.

Let me know what you find out, mine does the same thing starting at about 25 mph, and the frequency get higher with Speed. Sounds like a weather alert radio at 55.

Mine does this but only from 5-10 mph. Valve Body is the culprit...Currently waiting for the dealer to let me know when the parts available. Dealer stated it was on back order. Oh ya, Mine's a 2012 JKU.

Okay, I am feeling like an idiot. After researching this noise for several days and finding several different options. I realized the noise was coming from the fins on my lightbar. Put in some weatherstripping, and now it is dead silent. Thanks to another thread on this forum, the fix cost me less than five bucks.

I understood that the recall is for potential leak cased by contact with some steering components. Where'd you get the whistle thing?
