So I saw a sign today at the dealership saying not to use the orange rain x because it corrodes the sensor. Figured it was bs until I happened to mention it to another guy in the waiting room..was the exact reason he was there. Jeep will not warranty it. Just an FYI...for what it's worth

Well that's nice. I just dumped a gallon of that stuff in the other day. The one for bugs right? Now I can't remember if it was Rain X brand. I think it was.

Did they leave anything to actually check the old fashioned way?

Thanks for the heads up! I just bought a bottle last week at Autozone. I guess I'll see if I can exchange it.

I've been using the stuff in both my Jeeps since 08. It's the only kind I use. Never had a problem. I also sell it and have never had an issue.

That's the stuff I always use. Probably haven't put too much through the JK yet, but 80,000 miles on an '11 GC and 50,000 miles on a '14 GC using the same stuff without any ill effects.

There's a windshield washer fluid sensor on the JK?
Funny I was just thinking that as I read the responses after I posted. I've never had a light come on and my fluid was definitely empty. No one should need a sensor to tell them when their fluid is out...when it stops spraying, refill it.

Maybe he had a GC? Any who...just found it interesting that they had a sign posted for Chrysler vehicles not to use it.

Same here... didn't know there was a sensor for it. Mine went empty so I dumped a gallon of the green RainX bug windshield washer fluid. Hopefully it doesn't do anything bad...

JK's don't have a low fluid sensor, but most Chrysler vehicles do have it. I've been using that stuff for years without any issues. Sometimes it good not to have an extra sensor. One less thing to worry about.

I love that stuff in the winter 'cause it doesn't freeze on the windshield.

I call BS. I think it's just an out for Chrysler to avoid a warranty repair on their dime for a cheap junk sensor.
