Well that certainly sucks but honestly not surprised. What a situation. Jeep really should not be putting you in a pickle like this. I think Shakes and company are right. Probably have to bite the bullet, buy the battery local and hope for some kind of reimbursement.....Update on this for the curious. I called the border and they won’t allow a handoff from one truck to another. Canadian truck would have to cross, drive a mile up the road and dump it for an American truck. At that point they’ve already crossed so they might as well take it the extra ~9 miles to the Jeep dealer. No hilarious photo opp, unfortunately.
Let's hope that's exactly what it yields.That's a good start
At -2, you should be fine. Wind chill doesn't really make a difference.Let's hope that's exactly what it yields.
Honestly even if the battery issue was solved right now it almost certainly wouldn't start. It's -2 with a -30 wind chill and my charge port is still busted and backordered so the big battery can't condition.
Just to add my Dealer confirmed that they can deal with Jeep and you don’t need to pay a penny… except that you need get towing reimbursed from FCA directly. Cheers SamQuebec, Canada here….. i called my dealer for you and said it is cover under warranty…. My dealer in Montreal city …. If you can tow direct message me and I am happy to help…and welcome to Canada bro!
We need to take care of our neighbours when visiting us !!That’s super nice of you! Way to go👌🏻
Did they say if it was holding a charge under load? The fact that it was at 6v is a good indicator it was drained and if it wasn't holding a charge under loaf, it wouldn't surprise me if it was doing what you're describing.The Saga continues. CAA brought my battery back (measured it at 6V before giving it an overnight charge) but the Jeep still won’t start. Electronics are now on, but no engine. Also, weirdly, the halo lights are not turning off, even when the Jeep is off and locked. Getting charge system faults. So It’s going to get a tow… somewhere. Thanks so much for @SamCanada for putting me on the right path, will attempt to find a Canadian dealer to bring it to on Monday.
Unfortunately nobody stocks this battery outside of dealers. Not around here anyway. Checked auto parts stores, Costco and Walmart. Didn’t have alternative transportation until today, and dealer parts/service are closed now until Monday. The reason I called CAA to begin with was for their on-site battery replacement service, easier than me taking a long taxi into town and renting a car to find one. They didn’t stock the battery and couldn’t find one, which is why they tried the recharge. I’ve ended up renting that car anyway, to look myself and because I’m running out of food lol.Which is why I suggested new 12v battery.
