  1. Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Hi. a couple weeks ago my etc light came on in my Jeep Patriot. Took it to the mechanic and I got my throttle body and gas pedal replaced. I got my jeep back and then the past couple days everytime I start my car in the morning the etc light comes on. I turn off my ignition and then start my car...
  2. Engine and Drivetrain
    Went all winter without it coming on and once the outside temperature hits 60 degrees....it comes on every few days. Did this last year also. So let's recap... 1. New factory throttle body (Nov 2020). 2. New factory accelerator pedal (around same time). 3. Never comes on once outside temps are...
  3. Engine and Drivetrain
    Hey guys, first post and looking for some help. My fiancé has a 2012 Jeep Patriot 2.4L automatic transmission, with manual windows/lock, etc. The issue is that ONLY in the morning, the Jeep will crank, but not start. It will only start after 4-5 times of turning the key, or after a jump start...
  4. Engine and Drivetrain
    When it rains I get this code and usually the ETC light flashes and it goes into a hairy non-limp-home mode but slow response from the pedal and idle at 2k, with lurching "in and out of gear" effect (thought it is cvt, LU solenoid in and out?). I found that I can key off and key on and it drive...
  5. Engine and Drivetrain
    First post - hope it reads OK .. My 2008 2.4 CVT Patriot (96k) has intermittent non-start issues. She'll crank, but not fire - mostly when the engine is cold and it also appears to happen more often when the air temp is cooler (lower than about 6C / 42F is the trigger point for not starting) ~...
  6. Engine and Drivetrain
    Last month I finally made my last payment of my Jeep Patriot 2012. Unfortunately during the last days of August something strange happened. One morning, after driving a few miles to my office, the ETC light blinked for less than a second. During that short time, the throttle didn't respond. I...
  7. Engine and Drivetrain
    Hi I wonder if anyone can help with the above please? I have searched through but I cant see anything for diesels, does anyone know where this is that could explain or ideally share a couple of pictures. My jeep is not going anywhere currently and wont go over about 5mph with a load of lights on...
  8. Engine and Drivetrain
    Today after putting a full tank of gas in and washing my Jeep, which always used to be the kiss of death on my Saab, I got onto the highway and felt my Jeep lurch a little bit when accelerating. I didn't expect anything major because it was cold so I figured it was the CVT warming up. Then I...
  9. Engine and Drivetrain
    I have a problem with my jeep patriot 2008, 3 weeks ago the ETC (electronic throttle control) and Traction Control light turn on and I lost engine power, It just ran idle. It can not go more than 2000 RPM. I turn it off and on and was everything ok. Now it started again with the problem, but...
  10. Newbie Check-In
    Hey everyone, I thought some of you might find some interest with this problem, and might even might know what it actually is (God forbid you have had the same thing)... I bought a new 2010 patriot, limited, deep water blue at the end of May up in Colorado. I drove up to the mtns and hung...
