    Hey all! I'm wondering if anyone has any issues with the 4wd system not working when it's cold. It's happened to me twice when the temp at night drops.

    Cold is a relative term... What were the temps?

    I would look into this. Mines a 2015 with same. Works perfectly at even -20. Could be a base issue with the 4wd system.

    I had an issue once... didn't matter the temp and the 4 wheel drive system wouldn't engage. The jeep dealership had to flash my computer twice... that was 8 months ago and no issues since.

    Mine kept going out because of the thermostat believe it or not.

    Thanks for the input! I wanted to have a little ammo before I head to the dealer.

    I didn't find a flash that matched exactly what you described, but there are flashes available for your model year, and the dealership should be able to get more in depth with you regarding those. Please don't hesitate to send a message if you need us to provide any follow up!
