|Lu Bell||I am a new member to this forum, seriously considering buying my first Wrangler. I gotta ask if these kind of strange defects showing up along with apathetic dealership technicians is what I have to look forward to. At retirement age, that reputation is the reason I never bought one earlier. I hear that lately Jeeps have gotten more reliable, and I love the culture and "belonging", but this is making me a little skeptical. Is this "it"?|

|Gary04Z06||Jut happened (again to me), finally got a few warm days, and it did the cut out thing. Was fine all winter using the heat. It was sunny, probably warmer in the cab than it was outside.|

|FIREMIA||Weird hasn't happened in a while and just happened yesterday also.|

Still having the issue here, and reliably at 75 degrees on the temp display.
I find it funny that the display "climbs" from the last temperature to the new temperature. Seems like it should just read the temperature outside at that time and adjust immediately, but maybe something so instant would be fluctuating all the time.
I will mention it to the dealer next time I go in for the trans line recall repair, but I dont feel like keeping it overnight to reproduce it, probably twice, before the tech understands, and then likely has no fix yet anyway. Unless there is just a new flash I can ask for that might happen to have a fix.

|soberbyker||Funny you should wake this thread up, it happen to me yesterday, looked at the temperature displayed and sure enough it was 75 degrees.|

Bump to see if there is any updated info on the A/C "cutout" issue.
My 2012 JKU Sport S did it once or twice in the first year of ownership, but is now starting to do it every time I'm in my Jeep. As others have said, it's typically within the first 5 minutes of starting and, as the few posts above me have discussed, happens when the external temp readout is at 75 degrees. The duration has been 3 seconds on the dot almost every time, but I just noticed on the way home from work that it only lasted about one second, but that's the exact length of time it took for my external temp display to cycle through the 75 degree mark. I'll start watching to see how the cutout correlates with the 75 deg reading. On cooler mornings, it may take 3 seconds to climb from 74 to 76. It's in the mid 80s here right now, so the climb likely happened faster.
I'm out of my warranty period based on mileage (48,000), but I can likely get it good-faithed at my dealership if there is a TSB on the issue.

It doesn't happen often nor more than once a trip but when it does it's within the first 5 minutes of driving, anyone else on that?
|10-16-2013 08:49 PM|
|diggler86||So today it happened later in driving than usual. But the day started out cooler than usual here and then heated up when the sun came out. Right when it happened, I checked the temp and sure enough, it was 75F. I will keep checking but theres got to be a connection with the temperature that people are seeing it happen right at that temp.|

I will be paying attention this week, our cold front just came in today, it was actually a bit too cool to run the A/C today though, it never hit 73 when I was out.
introsystems - Can you get a part number for what they changed out? Or a copy of the invoice or work order saying what they did?

AC Cutting Out Fixed
Well after 5 visits to the dealer I think they finally fixed the ac cutting out issue on mine. After a lot of going back and forth, it seemed to be the switch/ switch board they replaced. When I told them it may be the TIPM they changed everything else before they touched the TIPM. Had it for 1 month now since the fix and it hasn't cut out yet. I got excuses from them
1. too many electrical mods causing the problem (Fog lights Winch ETC)
2. Your Led foot well lighting is causing it
3. Dash Camera causing the problem
Basically if you have any mods disconnect them and don't let the dealer leave with an excuse, get them to fix it and keep bringing it back.

|flipmeover||Don't let them off the hook if they try to give you the same crap they gave me (claimed it was the evaporator deicing). At the time it seemed to be a reasonable response, however seeing Elochi's post about it only happening at 24C drove me to start paying attention. Every time it has happened, I've looked and the temp has been 24C/74F-75F (6-8 times now)... and it's not that cool very often during the Florida summer.|

^ That's an interesting idea. It would fit into why I haven't seen many issues this summer, I have been over 80 most of the summer except for a few times. It's possible that last post I made was one of those times, since I normally wouldn't get so cold inside to turn down the A/C.
I should be able to test this out more as fall rolls in, we are just now seeing some relief.

I had the air cut out multiple times this week. I usually run my temp gauge in Fahrenheit, but each time it cut out I would quick switch to Celsius and the temp was at 24C.
There does seem to be some correlation to this value. Maybe something they're calculating from the sensor inputs is causing a divide by zero or stomping on ECU memory when the temp crosses this threshold. Anyone know a software engineer at Jeep...

Mine just did it the first time yesterday. 2013 2 door J/k Sport. Manual controls. 3100 miles and I bought it in June. A/C went off and the wife said what happened and it went back on. I said jeep gremlins and took the top down and didn't use it again.
Don't Jeep engineers own Jeeps or read these forums???? You would think one of the eggheads would have the issue and find a reason.

I'm having the same issue...2013 JKU Sport, 15K miles,
2-3 second pause
within a couple of minutes
never in recirc
seems like I has always happened in 1/2 power and up speed.
I know about the delay when you start up however, on a couple of occasions it has come on right when I started the Jeep
temp and humidity has varied
my service guy said it had to do with it having to recycle "from top to bottom" but then he also was talking about the starting delay so I don't really know what he meant lol
I also had the issue of it not starting on occasion, with no fix found,
now I found there is a recall but no parts available, the dealership said they have not even issued part numbers yet so they don't even know what to order....
My Bluetooth feature acts like it's possessed.
Also have started noticing a ticking noise when I first start for about 10-15 seconds...gonna have to start searching the forums for the Pentastar tick to see if this is the same.
This is my first Jeep and am really disappointed in the issues so far. For those saying it's not a big deal - I bought it brand new. It should work like it's brand new or they should be able to fix it for the money we are spending on it. If I don't say something and it's something they can fix or it is part of a bigger problem we don't know yet, I am doing a disservice to my fellow Jeep owners because we have already found out - they haven't heard of this problem. if we don't keep telling them, none of us will be able to get it fixed and they'll keep putting us off. I don't mind it having glitches if they can fix them but I don't want them to put me off like I'm crazy and the only one dealing with this.
This is the best part of these forums - finding others dealing with the same issues #strengthinnumbers!

After not having this issue for a long time, I had it - and I may have something here. I have been running the A/C on the coldest temp setting and on the highest fan setting.
Last week I was out for a long time, and actually got a bit cold. I turned the fan down two settings. Within a minute I had the fan cutoff. I was shocked since it hadn't done it in so long but I didn't connect it. I had it turned up again like normal for awhile, and then one night, I turned the fan setting down again to answer the phone. It did it again.
Can anybody else give this a try - turn the A/C to the coldest, the fan to the highest, and then turn the Jeep on and let it run? Especially someone whose been having issues. I would like to know if the issue goes away with it set like this.
I set mine back like this again and I hasn't had an issue since.

|Jeepgal87||I had to have the computer in my jeep replaced within the first week of having him! Check engine light on the second day of driving and the dealership told me they have had multiple issues with the computers used in the 2013 models. So far so good (fingers crossed).|

|soberbyker||Just started happening to my 2013 Sahara Unlimited with Auto Temp. a few days ago. Seems like it turns off and a few seconds later turns back on. My Jeep was built on 01/11/13.|
|08-22-2013 11:34 PM|
|Gary04Z06||My 2013 Rubi has done this a couple of time since I bought it with 300 miles on it about a month ago. I was at the dealer for something and mentioned it, he said he never heard of this problem. Said to make an appointment and they would look into it.|
|08-22-2013 11:08 PM|
Once it hits a temp on the monitor going upward, the blower cuts out. I have check for obd2 error codes and got nothing. I believe that this computer related in someway as there no other reason that it would cut out each and every time the temp reader for the outside temp goes from 23 to 24 C

|Gkarshens||My 2012 JKU sport has been doing this since I got it. I took it to the dealer and they could not repeat it and "checked" the system out and could find nothing wrong. They also acted like they had never heard of it. I find that hard to believe after seeing so many others with the same issue. It isn't a huge deal for me since I run top-off most of the time, but knowing my luck the AC will completely go out right after the warranty expires.|
