This Is The Second Recall That We Have Had On This Vehicle In Less Than A Year. Here Is The New Reall Information. Summary: Chrysler Group Llc (chrysler) Is Recalling Certain Model Year 2011-2014 jeep Grand cherokee And Dodge Durango Vehicles Manufactured From January 5, 2010, Through September 8, 2013. The Subject Vehicles Have A Brake Booster With A Center Shell That May Corrode And Allow Water To Get Inside. We Caled The Dealership, And They Stated They Will Check The Break Booster, But If There Is No Corrosion, They Will Not Replace It. Here Is My Question. What Happens If There Isn’t Any Corrosion Now When It’s Checked, But It Becomes Corroded 6-12 Months Later? I Don’t Forsee The Dealership Telling Us To Come In Every Month To Check It Out. So We Just Have To Plug Along Driving Every Day Unsure If Our Brakes Will Work Or Not. This Is Rediculous And Majorly Unsafe. I Believe The Dealership Shoud Replace The Part Even If There Is No Corrosion! Period. This Is The Kind Of Stuff That Leads To Major Lawsuits After Accidents.

I Am A Nurse And Travel For A Living. On My Way Home From Assignment In Wv. Just Outside A Bowling Green On I65. My Car Jerked Then Lost All Power. Engine Light, Service Transmission Light And Battery Lights All Came On. I Was Going 70 Miles An Hour. I Had No Acceleration. I Coasted To The Shoulder, Across 3 Lanes Of Interstate. I Attempted jeeps Emergency Number But Got The Unable To Connect Voice Mail, After 5 Minutes My Car Restarted. I Remained On Right Side Of Road. 65 Miles Later And 15 Miles From Nashville The Car Jerked And I Lost The Ability To Accelerate Once Again. I Pulled Over And The Car Restarted. I Am Now In A Hotel For The Third Night And Unable To Get Home. I Took My Car To jeep This Morning To Be Serviced. I Was Told A Computer Malfunction Caused The Problem. The Dealer Did Not Offer To Pay For Rental Car, Hotel Ect. The New Part Is Supposed To Be Here Tuesday. No I Was Not Killed Or Involved In A Crash However, I Can Think Of Several Scenarios Where I Easily Could Have Been In A Horrible Crash. What If The New Module Is Also Bad I Asked. It’s Like My New Laptop I Was Told. Sometimes They Just Break.

I Went To Shift Vehicle Into Drive, Vehicle Would Not Shift Into Any Gear. Turned The Vehicle On And Off Three Times, On The Third Attempt I Managed To Get In To Shift Into Drive. Vehicles Transmission Service And Check Engine Lights Came On Stating “service Transmission Start From Park With Vehicle At Zero Speed.” When I Had Shifted Through To Drive To Move The Vehicle The Transmission Made A Clunking Sound Like It Had Fallen Out Of The jeep. I Drove It 3 Miles To My House Only Going 30 Mph. When I Got Home I Attempted To Put The Vehicle Into Park And The Transmission Would Not Move Past Neutral. I Attempted To Remove Key 4-5 Times And Because Of This The Dash Lights Had Stayed On. I Disconnected The Battery And Had The Vehicle Towed To The Dealership The Next Day.

This Exact Scenario Happened 4 Times Between 6/5/14-9/16/14. — I Was Driving About 40 Mph On The Way To Work. All Of A Sudden My Car Made A Chime Sound (as If A Door Was Opened) And My Car Started Slowing Down, As If I Took My Foot Off The Gas. My Dash Had Many Lights Come On (pretty Much All Of The Sensor Lights) And It Said “service Park Break” And “service Transmission” My Check Engine Light Was On As Well. I Can Assure You My Park Break Was Not On! I Coasted To The Side Of The Road Since Pressing On The Gas Was Not Helping Me Move Forward. My Car Never Actually Shut Off On It’s Own, It Just Lost Power, As If It Was In Neutral. I Shut Off The Engine, Let It Sit A Minute And Started It Up Again. The Same Lights Were On And It Said Service Transmission. I Put The Car In Drive And Heard A Clunking Sound. The “d” In The Shifter Was Also Blinking. I Shut The Car Off Again And Let It Sit A Little Longer. I Tried It Again And When I Put It In Drive There Was No Clunking Sound But When I Took My Foot Off The Break I Started To Roll Backwards As If I Was In Neutral. I Live In A Rural Area So All Of This Was Occurring On A 2 Lane Road With Little To No Shoulder At 7:15am, So The Traffic Was At Its Heaviest. It Was Very Scary Because I Had No Warning And Neither Did The Cars Behind Me. My Car Literally Just Started To Slow Out Of No Where. I Was Almost Rear Ended Twice Because Of This. I Then Decided To Have It Towed To The Dealer. The Only Difference That Happened With The Other 3 Times, Is That I Waited Long Enough For The Car To Engage Once I Put It In Drive. So I Was Able To Drive Myself To The Dealer Those Times. I Plan On Taking This To jeep/chrysler As Well.

Similar To What Occurred With The Other Posts, On Saturday My Car Stalled While At A Stop Sign. Disabled, The Engine Light And The Service Transmission Indicator Came On The Dashboard. Following The Advice Of Some Helpful Gentlemen, I Was Able To Get The Car Home. On Sunday, I Took The Car To The Dealer And The Diagnostic Test Reportedly Stated It Was The Transmission And Then A Subsequent Call Identified The Issue As An electrical Issue. I Picked The Repaired Car Up As Directed And Then The Car Stalled. I Was Almost Rear-ended As The Car Was Disabled With The Hazard Lights. I Managed To Coast The Car Into A Parking Lot By Using The Advice Of The Gentlemen And Then Called The Dealer, This Is The Second Time The Car Abruptly Stalled. This Time It Would Not Start For Me To Pull Into A Parking Space. I Was Asked To Drive The Car Back To The Dealer, I Refused. After Speaking To The General Manager Of Sales, The Dealer Sent Two People To Bring The Car Back And The Person Driving My Car Stated It Stalled Twice But He Knew How To Get The Car Going. Monday I Missed Worked, Tuesday They Provided A Rental, Today I Picked Up The Car, And Tonight I Am In A DealerÔ┐┐s Rental That Will Need To Be Exchanged For Another Rental Tomorrow. This Has Been A Taxing Experience That Is Not Expected For A Car That Was Purchased New At The End Of April. This Is My Second jeep But From What I Am Reading, There Is Something Wrong With This Car That Needs Immediate Attention.

Low Oil Pressure: I Change My Oil As Specified In Manual. Now All Of A Sudden I Have A Drop In Oil Pressure. When Driving The jeep My Oil Pressure Is Now At No More Than 25psi And It Drops To Zero When Idle. On My Last Oil Change I Had The Engine Checked And There Were No Cracks And No Misfire. I Had A Tune Up Done On The Vehicle In Sept 2008. Engine And Everything Was Running Fine. As For That Day I Have To Get The jeep To Mechanic To Take A Look. This Past Summer The jeep Also Would Over Heat In 90 Degree Weather And It Mostly Happened When The Ac Was Turned On. Took It Mechanic And Couldn’t Find Anything Wrong We Replaced The Thermostat With A Lower Temp And Seemed To Fix The Problem. Then About 2 Days Later The jeep Started To Overheat Again. Replaced The Relay As It Tested Bad. While Replacing The Relay The Fan Broke. The Blades Completely Separated From The Fan Motor In A Whole Piece. Replaced Fan. Never Thought I Had Any Coolant Leaks And Never Found Any But The Coolant Will Not Stay In The Reservoir. It Just Disappears.

I Have A 2000 jeep cherokee, That Whenever It Hits A Bump On The Road, The Gauges Start To Die. First The Airbag Light , Then The Engine Light Come On. After That The Odometer Dies, So I Have No Idea How Fast I Am Going. Sometimes All The Gauges Fail. When I Hit Another Bump On The Road Everything Goes Back To Normal. I Tried To Have This Fixed, But Unfortunately This Is A Common Problem For jeep And Chrysler, My Mechanic Looked There Is Nothing Wrong With The Dash. It Is Somewhere In The Cables, Usually It Takes Chrysler A Couple Of Days(he Told Me From His Experience, From His Other Customers) And They Can’t Guarantee That They Even Find The Faulty Wire. And Even After They “find The Problem” Most Likely It Will Come Back. *tr

Vic Display Show “coolant Sensor Bad.” Online Investigations Reveal Many Owners Have Experienced The Same Problem Over The Years. Their Trial Solutions Have Ranged From Replacing The “coolant Temperature Sensor,” The Coolant Level Sensor,” Replacing “connecting Wiring” To The Vic, And To Removing The Vic To Repair Solder Joints And Cracks At The Circuit Board That Is Located In The Vic. Most Report That The First Three Attempted Remedies Did Not Resolve The Defect. Some Report Success In Re-soldering Joints On The Circuit Board. The Latter,–removing The Vic And Repairs At The Circuit Board– Is An Involved Process And Requires Extensive Knowledge And Repair Tools And Equipment. All Report That This Condition Left Unresolved Could Lead To The Engine Overheating And/or Faulty Data Sent To The Fuel Injection System, And Possible Engine Fire. With So Many Complaints On This Defect, A Recall Or A Manufacture Repair Bulletins, Should Be Issued At The Manufacturer’s Expense. *tr

1997 jeep Grand cherokee Laredo 4.0l I6 Began Stalling In 2010 Under Seemingly Random Conditions. Replaced Several Parts (spark Plugs, Wires, Distributor Cap & Rotor, Ignition Coil, Pcm) Over The Past Four Years To No Avail. The Difference Currently Is That The Stall Now Only Seems To Occur At Temperatures Less Than 65-70 Degrees F. The Colder The Environment, The Worse Stall Probability. Colder Temps Also Increase Probability Vehicle Will Not Start After A Stall. Vehicle Will Always Fire Up On A Cold Start. Stall Occurs At Varying Speeds (including At Idle), But Above Approximately 40 Mph Stall Becomes What Seems Like A Misfire. Believe I Have Narrowed The Problem Down To An Intermittent Connection In The Wiring Harness, Either At The Gray Pcm Connector (closest To Body), Or In The Wire Leading To This Connector. Putting Enough Pressure On The Wires Under The Pcm In A Certain Direction Will Cause The Vehicle To Hiccup Or Stall. Only Code Ever Shown Related To Stall Was The Unspecific P0351 Ignition System Code. Fortunately, If A Stall Occurs At Higher Speeds, Engine/vehicle Speed Must Still Drop To A Certain Level Before Power Steering/braking Are Lost. Otherwise Vehicle Would Be Too Dangerous To Drive. Nevertheless This Is Still A Hazardous Condition.

The Dealer Told Me They Don’t Just Sell That Harness I Had To Buy The Entire One For Everything In The jeep. Then Told Me To Go Cut One Out Of A Junk Yard. I Called My Local Junk Yard And The Guy Went And Cut Three Harnesses Out. One That Was A 1996, One That Was A 1995, And Both Of The Ends Were Burnt Just Like Mine. He Then Cut One Out Of An Even Older One, And The Wires Were Thicker Than The Ones On Mine, And Different Colors. I Tried Hooking It Up And It Doesn’t Work.

With Time The Blower Motor Wiring Harness (which Is Too Small For The Amperage) In These Vehicles Invariably Heats Up And Melts Or Burns. The Melting Of The Harness And Connector Behind The Blower Speed Selector Switch In The Dash And The Burning Of The Switch Itself Occured In My Vehicle, Allong With The Failure Of The Blower Motor Resistor, But In Many Vehicles The Resistor Is The First To Burn And Fail. I Have Looked At Over 20 Of These Vehicles Ranging From 1991 To 1996, And 30000 To 220000 Miles, And Every Single One One Them Had These Components Melted And Burned To The Point Of Not Being Usable, And Making One Wonder How Many Other Vehicles Have Caught Fire And Burned Because Of This Fault. Some Of These Vehicles Also Showed Associated Wires Burned Or Melted In The Steering Column. An Associated Symptom Is That The Blower Motor Ceases To Function, Or (in The Case Of Resistor Failure, Will Usually Work Only On High Speed). This Shows A Defect That May Take Time To Manifest, But Will Always Occur Eventually In Every Vehicle Unless The Blower Is Never Used. The Blower Switch To Resistor Wiring Harness And Switch Connector/plug Are Not Even Available From Dealers, But The Switch Itself And The Resistor Are Available As Aftermarket Items. However, If Replaced, These Will Fail Too, Unless The Wiring In This Circuit Is Replaced With Heavier Guage Wiring Or Somehow Protected From High Amperage. As Evidenced By Hundreds Of Related Complaints On Internet Forums, This Is A Serious Problem That Could Result In Fires, And Potentially Loss Of Life. Luckily My Fire Was Minor, Did Little Damage And Was Quickly Extinguished. However, I’m Not Sure How To Resolve The Actual Problem Properly, Since Oem Replacement Parts Will Sooner Or Later Develop The Same Problems, And Available Aftermarket Parts Are Not Improved Over The Originals. *tr

I Was Driving Down The Highway,and All Of A Sudden I Heard A Loud Noise. So I Pulled Over To The Nearest Gas Station And Realized I Was Leaking Oil Profusely. Then I Realized The Driver Side Motor Mount Had Broken Off Of The Engine Causing A Large Hole In The Engine Block. I Have Taken Great Care Of My Vehicle, Changed The Oil Every 3,000 Miles, And Then This Happens At Random. I Didn’t Hit Anything To Cause The Motor Mount To Break, So Why Would It Break For No Reason? Anyways, The Leaking Oil Caused A Fire Beneath My Vehicle, And Inside The Engine Compartment. But I Quickly Put Out The Fire By A Container Of Water I Had In My Vehicle. I Had My 13 Year Old Brother With Me And Thank God He Or Myself Was Not Injured.

While Leaving Home From Work, The Vehicle Started To Shutter And Fail. I Managed To Get Home At A Speed Of 40mph Since I Noticed That At A Higher Speed, The Vehicle Would Try To Stall. The Next Day I Tried To Turn On The Vehicle But It Would Not Turn On. I Called A Certified Mechanic And Received Instructions Thru Cell Phone To Shake A Bit The Cables To Computer Components And Cables To Distributor Components. The Vehicle Turned On But With Problems. I Managed To Drive To Mechanic Shop Where The cherokee Was Left For Testing And Repairs. The Diagnostics Showed A Faulty Computer. The Computer Was Replaced. About Three Months Later, The Vehicle Stalled Again At A Cross Road And Turned Off. A Truck Nearly Struck Me Because I Couldn’t Get Out On Time. The Mechanic Had To Show Up At The Site And Had Some Problems Starting The cherokee. The Diagnostics, Another Blown Computer. The Mechanic Ordered Another Computer With Upgrade (had To Wait About A Month) Original Crank Shaft Sensor Was Added. All Seemed To Work Well Until Yesterday Oct/2/2013 When I Went Out For A Ride With My Son And The cherokee Stalled And Turned Off. The Same Symptoms As Before. I Have Spent About $1,000.00 Trying To Get My jeep cherokee To Run Properly And Now I’m Afraid To Take It Out To The Street. I Have A Family Of 4 And I Worry That The cherokee Would Fail Me By Stalling Again At A Crossroad Causing A Fatal Accident To Me Or My Family Because Of This electrical Failure. All Cables Were Checked For Shorts But Nothing Solves The Problem. I Did Some Recall Search But Nothing Official Although Some jeep Grand cherokee Users Report The Same Problems For Their 4.0l Engine (my jeep cherokee Is Also 4.0l) Coincidence? I Love My cherokee But Feel That I Can’t Rely Anymore On It As For Safety. Had It For About 6 Years Without Problems The First 5 Years. *tr
