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.

Grand Cherokee 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
1)unknown, purchased as pre-owned 2)vehicle won't start right away, turn key to start then wait approx 10 seconds and try again, typically will then start, all other electrical parts would come on. On two occasions vehicle was towed because it would not start at all. Entire electrical system went haywire, no gauges, power windows and locks did not work. Heat/ac blower randomly works. 3)computer was replaced, starter was replaced, ignition switch was replaced. Problem still exists, but much more infrequently. Was advised by phil long Jeep repair that there is no part available to repair blower on heat/ac unit. Windows fog and freeze, no visibility. This has been an ongoing problem for many months. Complete failure occurred sometime in March 2007.

At 26,164 miles the right stop light bulb would not function. This was replaced under warranty. At 54,538 miles the left stop light bulb would not function. This was replaced at a cost of $191.40. The original lamp assemblies are defective and a safety hazard. The mfg. Has even redesigned the replacement lamp assembly. All lamp assemblies should be recalled and replaced and owners that paid to have this safety hazard corrected should be reimbursed.
