2012 JKUR with 20k miles and no issues like this.

I was alarmed by many postings (missing skids; engine sieze from water injestion; etc.) prior to getting my vehicle and they all proved to be non-existant for my Rubi. I did have the airbag replaced due to faulty install from the factory though.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara Instrument Cluster

Just curious if the problem has been fixed yet. My 2012 Sahara seems to be having the same problem, and the dealer replaced a module already, but picked it up and the same problem, just as shown in your video.

The video is at bottom.

Anyway, the Jeep has been at the dealer 3x now, and they could not find the problem. They replaced the ABS module, but it did not fix anything.

I just got a call from the dealer (they have had it for 4 days now) and Chrysler has issued an "internal" bulletin (not a TSB, I asked) that the actuators on the sway bar disconnect system are NOT water sealed and are letting water in. This is causing all sorts of electrical problems, hence the gauge cluster and dash acting all crazy.

Keep an eye on your Rubis, especially as the wetter weather is upon us.

The symptoms:
