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.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 052015

Grand Cherokee LE 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 107,000 miles


Power windows on passenger doors do not work. Interior lights on, until we turned all lights off (were on auto).

Can only lock passenger doors manually. Key fobs do not work to lock or unlock doors. At night the dash lights were dim. Overhead light would not go off. I was able to turn off.

We bought our Jeep used in October of 2014 with 106,000 miles on it. Had most service records, this problem was not listed on Car Fax report.

Had to have the key fobs reprogramed as they only worked on passenger side door up close to car. We had to replace a module in the passenger door for the fobs to work. We parked it last night until our appointment on Wednesday with our authorized Jeep dealer.

We read the complaints on your site, so decided to vent. I will let you know what transpires.

Grand Cherokee Limited V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 165,222 miles

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited and I don't know where to begin with the list of issues I have had with this car. Today however, It almost killed me, my mother and son. First started with the locks and windows not working. I live in the desert and should my air conditioner go out we will die of heat exposure I'm sure. I Googled and YouTubed the issue and was shocked to see so many Jeep owners having the same issues. The other issue is the odometer console going super dim when you turn the headlights on. You are unable to see your speed and if you turn on the cab lights you risk driving hazard for all.

But that's not what almost killed me, mom and son. The car gauges all went dead while on the freeway causing the steering wheel to lock. then as soon as it went out it came back on. When it went out all indicator lights came on causing the ABS light , airbag light to come on. I was afraid the airbag would deploy while driving. Mom has been advised who to sue should any of these things happen.

After researching all the complaints on the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited I was appalled to see Chrysler had not done anything to remedy this. I called Chrysler this afternoon and advised them of what had happened --all they told me was that they haven't had any complaints and recalls on these issues but that there was a recall #D13 electrical crank shaft position sensor. This will affect engine to die - wiring insulation. I am taking it to the dealership once they get the part for the recall because they have ordered that part. Does anyone know what else I can do to remedy this death trap of a car and a good lawyer ?
