    Noise from dash area, near dash speaker

    Just bought a Rubicon. Has about 200 miles. This noise started today when I hit highway speeds. Hard to tell from video, but it sounds more like an electronic noise than it does from wind. Almost sounds like it comes from the speaker. I powered the stereo off and it still does it. Wondered if anyone has experienced this. Needless to say, I will be going to the dealer when they open so hopefully its a quick fix.

    It’s not the radio, had exactly same noise I called it like someone sending Morse code lol.. it’s the windshield gasket. Look around edge and most likely will see it pinched or pulled up from windshield, mine was pulled up from driver side lower corner just a little.. showed dealer they fixed it and sound was gone. Hope this helps

    I heard something like this too

    I did hear a whistling sound somewhat like this with my 2019 Wrangler JL Rubicon (with the 2.0L turbo) when I took it on the highway at around 160 miles for engine break-in. I heard the noise for no more than a minute while driving at around 80MPH. I have hardly driven on the highway (even with 700 miles already) so I can't say if I would hear it again. I have not seen anything wrong with the windshield seal.

    Fixed

    I forgot to post an update. Yes it was related to the windshield seal. It was seated improperly at the factory, raised off frame 1/4 inch on driver side. Issue resolved, somebody should've caught that, but oh well

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
