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.

As I was driving along, the lights began to flicker on and off. The tire alert light came on which indicated a failure. I pulled over and checked the air pressure, which was good (33 psi). The tire alert light continued to come on and off. The doors would not open with the electronic controller. Engine would start. Problem continued to be intermittent until it stopped completely. Happened again this morning. Lights flickered then stopped. Radio, control panel, gauges, doors, etc. Were affected.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • 35,000 miles
Purchased vehicle in Feb 2009 this has happened numerous times since the first incident approx May 2010. While driving all the lights on the dashboard will turn on and off, all needles on the gauges (RPM, speed, etc.) will go up and down uncontrollably. The heat or ac which ever is on will go on and off, on an off. The all of a sudden it will all stop and be normal again. According to my research, online videos, and after speaking with the representative on the Chrysler recall hotline, this is strongly related to the electrical systems: Ignition switch recall. I am very concerned to drive this vehicle, I expressed this when I called Chrysler, and was never informed of the recall, I found out by hearing this on the news and come to find out my VIN# was never registered to me since I purchased the vehicle. The dealership has since closed. Since there is no fix in place, I would like a loaner/rental vehicle to be provided as the expense of Jeep/Chrysler. I don't think this is to much to ask in relation to my life, and safety of myself and family. I am in a trade for a living that requires me to drive my own vehicle to company jobsites, all over my state.

Aug 21 2014. The interior dome light was left in the on position, which drained the car battery completely. Upon recharging the battery all of the lights in the drivers console where on, the electronic stability control light was on, the air bag light was on, the check engine light was on. Upon taking it to a Jeep dealership was informed that the VIN in the onboard computer had been corrupted as well as saying that the traction control and the airbags were not functional until this had been resolved. Dec 5 2013. The battery had gone bad and needed be replaced. Once a new battery was installed the exact same thing happened with the VIN in the onboard computer being corrupted. The traction control and the airbags were also not working. Had to take the Jeep back to the dealership to have the computer reprogrammed with the correct VIN.
