My Jeep has been experiencing loss of power and restarting while driving down rt 80. Almost got myself and my pregnant girlfriend killed when it just off and restarted, I called the dealer right away and they couldn't do anything due to lack of part, we only have one car and they would not grant me a loaner, this is very unsafe, the lights on the dash all flickered then car shut down and restarted instantly and I'm sure it's causing other damage to the vehicle. I took all the key chains off an it has helped, but it's been doing it a lot more lately and it's very unsafe, when will a part become viable ?! this is redicoulus and clearly Chrysler doesn't care about your saftey!

While driving on the freeway at night my headlights started blinking on and off at a very fast pace. I could not get them to stop blinking. I was able to put my bright lights on and it stopped. This has happed many times over the past month. The cars in front of me think I am trying to make them pull over and let me by. This week my headlights came on during the daytime and they were in the off position. I never had them on. I am afraid to drive at night with this condition. My headlights come on when I use my key remote to unlock my doors. It is not set to do this and we can not get it to stop. When I turn the car off and back on again this will reset the headlights from blinking but they always start again while I am driving. I can not find anybody that knows what the problem is.

Grand Cherokee

  • 110,000 miles
My car engine shut off after driving 0.1 miles out of the alley in 2012 and again in 2013 after approximately 1 mile driven and it shut off. I was able to restart in neutral, but of course lost all power steering and brakes until it could restart. I thought it was a cold engine, however I received a recall from Chrysler 9/3/2014 and asked that the ignition switch be replaced. It is now 1 year afterward and they still have no parts to repair, only suggest that I use a single key. Honestly, this could have been much worse, it is time to have it repaired, but apparently they can't manufacture the parts in 12 months.
