Grand Cherokee 8-cyl

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

During stop-and-go driving, slowing to a stop, stopped at red light or stop sign, my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/4.7L V8 stalls out, engine dies. I put my hazard flashers on and place the gear shift to park. Restart the car and it starts up right away. Check engine light is not on. Mechanics cannot find problem. No reading on the code reader (dtc). This happens every day, several times a day for the past month. This is a serious problem that I understand many Jeep owners are experiencing like me. Please help us resolve this problem. Thank you.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I received a recall notice for a faulty ignition switch from Chrysler (P41/NHTSA 14V-438) on 09/11/14. To date (02/25/15) Chrysler's web sight states that the parts continue to be unavailable. The Chrysler notice states that if the defect is not remedied within a reasonable time to contact the NHTSA via this web sight www.safercare.gov. I am doing my due diligence and contacting the NHTSA to report this recall is not being completed within a reasonable time period. It has been 5 month since I was notified and the part(s) required to comply with this recall are not available according to Chrysler's web page, I consider this time period to be non-compliant "reasonable time" for a safety recall issued by the NHTSA. Can you please process this complaint, thank you very much. Updated 4/28/16
