The electrical circuits of a vehicle are protected by a series of fuses, circuit breakers and fuse links. Each of the fuses is designed to protect a specific circuit that can be identified using the fuse panel. Fuses are usually the first thing you should examine when electrical problems occur with your Jeep Wrangler, as they are relatively easy to inspect and cheap to replace.
The fuse block on the Jeep Wrangler is located on the left side of the instrument panel, along with the handbrake mechanism and below the turn signal and intermittent emergency lights. This is the only place where there are fuse blocks in the Jeep Wrangler, which is a bit different from most vehicles, which usually have several.
Type of fuse and identification
The Jeep Wrangler uses miniature fuses with a blade terminal design inside the fuse block. This design allows them to be removed with something simple, like a small tool like a pincer or with your fingers. The covers car ford of each block details the function of each of the fuses according to the location inside it.
Change a fuse
With the vehicle off, remove the fuse from the location you wish to check by pulling with a plug-in puller, which is often located directly on the fuse box. If you do not get a plug handle, use a clamp. Inspect the fuse to determine if it has been burned or not. The filament inside a burned fuse will look like it or visibly broken.
Inspection of fuses
The easiest way to verify if a fuse is still functional is with a test light. By placing the test light on each of the exposed tips, you will be able to know if it is burned if one or both sides are illuminated. If only one of the sides is lit, the fuse is blown. If you do not have a test light, a fuse can be visually inspected. If it is melted or if it is no longer connected as a single unit, the fuse is no longer valid.
Replacement of fuses
In the event that a fuse is blown, replacing it with a new one is relatively cheap. Fuses can be found in several places, such as at your local auto parts store or hardware store. Make sure you buy a fuse that has the same amperage to ensure the level of protection needed for that particular circuit. Replacing the fuse with another one that has a high or lower amperage value can adversely affect your Wrangler’s electrical circuits.
An icon does not change, it only evolves. Nothing better than Jeep Day, or 4×4 Day, held on Thursday (4) at Santo Amaro Horse Riding (SP), to show the brand revolution in its 78-year history, started with the pioneer Jeep Willys MB 1941. In addition to presenting news (see below), Jeep celebrates the results achieved in Brazil. Last month, the brand registered in the country its best market share in the world, with a 24.9% share in the SUV market. That is, out of every 4 sports-utility vehicles, one is of the Jeep brand. In search of more records, the automaker announced the arrival of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon for the second half of the year, and the start of sales of the new Jeep Wrangler in Brazil in the Sahara finish in two two-door and four-door Unlimited with removable hard top and divided into three parts, with suggested prices of R $ 259,990 and R $ 274,990, respectively. Unlimited offers more interior space and also features the Overland finish package, which includes wheels with a different design and hood and steppe cover in body color – black parts in the smaller version.
The two versions will be equipped with the new 2-liter gasoline turbocharged Wrangler 4-cylinder in-line direct injection that offers 272 horsepower and 40.8 kgfm of torque coupled with the new 8-speed automatic gearbox (three more than before). The higher energy efficiency is also aided by the Stop / Start system and even the assistance of the steering, which is now electro-hydraulic. In the Wrangler Rubicon, the Rock-Trac 4×4 system will have state-of-the-art, high-performance Dana 44 axles with a reduced ratio of 4: 1. The other exclusive features will be: Tru-Lok electronic locking differential, electronically disconnected front stabilizer bar, 5-foot taller suspension, 33-inch BF Goodrich mud tires and more underbody protection
Produced at the original Jeep factory in Toledo, Ohio, the Jeep Wrangler 2019, in addition to the two advanced 4×4 systems, features, for the first time in the history of the Wrangler, a permanent full-wheel drive two- reduced ratio of 2.72: 1 in the Sahara version. Called Selec-Trac, this new transfer case is intuitive and allows the driver to set it and forget it, while the force is constantly delivered to the front and rear wheels. However, specific off-road positions continue to exist, with 4WD divided equally between the two axles and the reduced 4×4. All is always selected by the robust selector next to the shift lever.
The new Wrangler 2019 is based on a recognizable design thanks to traditional Jeep styling details. The Wrangler’s new exterior design has lower waistline and larger windows for better outside visibility, especially on the trails. The Jeep design team gave the seven-slot grille an up-to-date look that now shows the two crevices at the ends intersecting the headlights, honoring the Jeep CJs (like the CJ-5 made in Brazil between 1957 and 1982). The top of the grid was tilted to improve aerodynamics. Behind, the traditional square flashlights are LED.
The tilt of the windshield has been optimized to improve aerodynamics and features a new four-bolt design at the top of the windshield frame to allow it to be folded back more easily. A new front crossbar now connects the A speakers and stays in place even when the windshield is folded, allowing the center rearview mirror to remain in place.
The doors are made of high strength aluminum and have a functional detail: the size of the tool required to remove the doors is printed on the hinge. The Wrangler may have the entire roof removed or just the two front panels above the driver and passenger. The parts are lighter and it is possible to remove only the one on the driver. In this new platform of Wrangler JL, the weight reduction was around 100 kg, depending on the version, also included a wide use of high strength steel and more aluminum in parts like the hood, for example.
OJeep Wrangler offers the fourth generation of the Uconnect multimedia set with an 8.4-inch touchscreen. The new system includes, in addition to its own GPS navigation, connectivity to the Apple Car Play and Android Auto systems. The previous generation had only one radio with Bluetooth. These screens display important information such as the vehicle’s lateral and longitudinal inclination degrees, the selected traction mode, steering degree, geographic coordinates, altitude relative to sea level, and so on. Ahead of the driver, there is the 7 “color screen in the center of the dashboard.
The new generation of the Jeep Wrangler brings dozens of active and passive safety components. For example: four airbags with two front and two side, traction, stability (ESC) and body throttle (ERM) controls, ramp start assist (HSA), descent assist (HDC) and point monitoring blind people (BSM).
Jeep Wrangler as an Iconic Global Automotive
The Jeep Wrangler is an icon of the global automotive industry. Considered one of the best 4X4 in the market, the model was totally renewed in the line 2018 and should arrive in Brazil at the beginning of the second half , with engine 2.0 turbo unpublished. Its adventurous essence has been preserved, as well as the classic round headlights and the grid of seven slots. All, of course, without neglecting the square and aggressive forms typical of the Jipão.
Thinner Torches are One of the Rare Daring Spots on the Rear Wrangler
The model features new headlights with daytime running lights on LEDs and auxiliary headlights on the front bumper. As for the inclination of the front glass, this is due to the adoption of a tilting windshield, which allows the front glass to be tilted over the hood. You can also remove doors and roof cover, leaving the jeep with more adventurous and with little to break during an off-road . Dubbed as JL, the new generation may even look like the previous JK, but it was only because there was no need for radical stylistic changes, but rather to risk losing its essence.
If on the outside the look was not revolutionized, inside, the Wrangler is another. The interior has been thoroughly tinkered with a good investment in the quality of the materials used. Plastics are coated and have soft touch and white stitching.
Wrangler Allow to Remove the Doors and Counteract Windshield
In addition to dominating the panel, the equipment has internal GPS and still some interesting features. Among them, perhaps the most attractive is an off-road application that allows occupants to view, in real time, important data on off-road driving , such as lateral and longitudinal tilt, temperature and pressure of mechanical components, as well as the operation of the traction system. In addition, the car offers convenience features, such as two-zone air conditioning, power windows and leather seats..
Off-Road Still Remains Wrangler’s Natural Habitat
The engine is the well-known 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar, with 285 hp and 35.9 kgfm of maximum torque, coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission – the former had six gears. An example of the good work of this transmission is to rotate at 140 km / h and see the needle of the spindle dial only 2,500 rpm. Another novelty that allowed to reduce fuel consumption was the introduction of the start-stop system , able to automatically shut the engine off at traffic stops.
With this set, the model becomes much more comfortable on asphalt paths. There is also a new engine option, a 2.0 turbo gasoline of 271 hp and 40 kgfm of torque , equally confirmed for our market.
The Interior has Been Extensively Modernized And Has Central Up to 8.4 Inches
The Wrangler Sport (two doors) is currently sold in Brazil for R $ 194,490 and Sport Unlimited (four doors) reaches R $ 204,990 . It remains to be seen if the Wrangler will not be a little more accessible thanks to the 2.0 turbo engine of lower litter, framed in a band of IPI (Tax on Industrialized Product) more favorable than that of the old V6 3.6.
Disassemble of Car Roof
One of the characteristics of the Jeep Wrangler is to be able to disassemble the roof of the car and leave it totally outdoors. The process has become easier compared to the predecessor, though not entirely intuitive. A few seconds are enough to safely remove the two front panels. For the rear, which protects the cargo area, it is good to have help. And even then, a few minutes should be reserved for that. If you want to save time, opt for the 4-door
Finding a comfortable steering position is not so simple. The driver’s seat up offers depth adjustment, height and tilt of the backrest, just as the steering wheel also delivers depth and height adjustment – it was just vertical. Even so, ergonomics is not a trump card of the new Wrangler . Already behind, there is plenty of room for the legs, head and shoulders, so that two adults travel in complete comfort.
With Smaller Wheelbase, The Two-Door Version Is Even More Adventurous
Obviously, the Wrangler performs oddly on off-road. Even by this, it surprises in the new generation its current ability with the road routes. The engine responds vigorously to the accelerator tread and not even the 27.6 cm distance from the ground can transmit great insecurity. This is thanks to the exemplary work carried out by the suspension system. The off-road measures are the best in the segment, with 44 degrees of angle of attack, 27.8 degrees of ventral transposition and 37 degrees of output. There are even two 4X4 system options. Available for Sport and Sahara (two or four doors), the simplest runs permanently and has reduced gear and Dana rigid axles on both ends.
