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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #5

May 312006

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 117,000 miles


Noticed that the head lights would automatically come on while the car was in park and shut off (headlight switch on auto) the radio controls on the steering wheel would work once in awhile the same for the cruise controls plus the horn does not work at all know did work when I bought it in April 06. I noticed when I played with the tilt steering something is would work some wouldn't. I believe that this might affect the airbag from deploying if in a wreck.

: the contact stated the plastic covering on both headlights became progressively more fogged and discolored to the point of being nearly opaque. This caused the intensity of the headlights to diminish. A service dealer was contacted, and determined nothing could be done to fix the problem. Updated 12/1/2006 -

The lenses on the front headlights were cloudy. It appeared to have developed condensation which made visibility very difficult when driving after dark. The owner contacted the dealer who told the him it was not their problem. Provide further details.
