Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #1

Grand Cherokee Limited V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 156,000 miles


I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. 6 cy. This is the 3rd time my heater resistor has shorted out and melted the wires on the resistor board. Which instantly turns power off to heater and blower. Doing my research I have seen the same problem on 1999 Jeeps where the wires heat up so much that they get too hot at times and melt, or the socket on the box melts.

The correct fix is to pull the whole dash apart and replace the wiring harness with a new one that came out in (April/May 2007) from Jeep. And replace the heater resistor. So I am mad that this is a recurring problem and should have a recall on this issue. Has anyone heard about a recall on this issue? I feel that Jeep should pay for this recurring problem. Feeling frustrated.
