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.

While parked the car will rotate between not cranking to starting but shutting completely off. In addition to these issues while driving 40 mph the vehicle will sometimes stall and engine will start to lose power. I took the vehicle into cutter Dodge in honolulu for repair on 8/25. They diagnosed the problem as a ignition switch recall but they didn't have the part to fix it at this time. In addition, stated that the wireless control module(wcm) had failed and needed to be replaced. While the car was there they also performed a 28 point inspection and didn't find any additional concerns. Nine days later the wcm part come in from Canada and was replaced. My vehicle was returned to me on 9/2. the car ran as intended at times for 9 days and on 9/12 the no crank, no start issue returned. As of the time of this formal complaint the vehicle will not start. In a closing, the issues the car was experiencing prior to taking it to the dealership for repair or exactly the same issues that I'm experiencing today. I will have the Jeep towed back to the dealership first thing Sunday morning.

Grand Cherokee

  • 65,200 miles
The ignition appeared to drop all gauges, blower, warning lights, etc. The entire dash went dead and all controls went dead as far as gauges, interior lights, fan motor, etc., although the vehicle appeared to keep running. The problem seems to be getting worse and worse, and we have been waiting over a year for Jeep to get the parts to replace the switch. They refuse to replace the switch with a new switch matching the same part number, but also have not secured replacement switches. It appears that they can continue to source switches for cars in production they wish to sell, just not the ones affected by this recall. Perhaps if someone halted sales of new cars until the auto manufacturers provided replacement parts for those under recall, we would have better performance on recalls.
