Takata inflator. I purchased my Jeep and after a few months I notice it kept getting stuck in 3rd. Wouldn't come out. Then the message "transmission over temp" would pop up. It would randomly just loose all power and cut off as I would be driving. I had it looked at. Checked the codes bc check engine light would pop up also. Multiple codes were in the history pertaining to the issue. I was going to get everything fixed until I was told to contact Jeep first bc there might be some recalls that others were experiencing my same problem. I would of paid for it regardless to fix the problems. It had numerous recalls. Made an appointment to mckinney Dodge in easley, SC. After fixing the recalls I have paperwork for a few months later was doing it again. I work in a service dept. So I asked one my techs if it was same problem as the recalls and did I need to call dealership back. They said yes. Called mckinney and they refused to set me an appointment and said the problems had nothing to do with the recalls they fixed. After having several tows and stranded and almost wrecking with my children in the car going down the highway and just dies, I'm beyond frustrated and no one can seem tell me how to fix. After reading several reviews and recall information, my issues are everything with my recalls. My airbag light go on and off also. They never touched that and it's also a recal. I need to know what I need to do bc I'm not waiting for an accident or death bc this vehicle. It's my only car and I've tried to pay myself and had recalls fixed and problem is still there. I've contacted a lawer. I want it fixed or I want another vehicle.

Takata recall: I was in an accident with my 2006 Grand Cherokee. The accident was due to the ignition switch and the vehicle powering down while in drive, or in use. Injuries were suffered due to the airbag's none deployment. After taking the vehicle to the dealer and attempting to have two recalls replaced, I was told there presently was no available fix, or replacement for recall P41. The vehicle was serviced in 2015 at fitzpatrick's Chrysler Jeep (430 E main street, ansonia, ct 06401 (203) 734-3318) for recalls P41(ignition switch) & N23(powertrain transfer case electrical system). In January of 2012 with 37K on the vehicle there was the first of two accidents that relate to recall P41. This accident was due to unresponsive braking and steering, which was caused by the ignition switch moving from the on position to the off position while the vehicle was in drive, or in use. This accident happened when attempting to stop the vehicle (rte. 80 East haven, ct) I noticed the vehicle was unresponsive. I used both feet and hands to apply the breaks, while simultaneously wrapping both hands around the lower half of the steering wheel and pulling upward with my biceps to apply additional downward momentum to the break pedal, but still I could not stop the vehicle. Injuries were sustained and out pocket costs for this accident total over $7000 dollars. The second accident happened in 2016. Not realizing the vehicle was off while attempting to bring the vehicle to a full stop on the highway (rte.15 no haven, ct.), I had a collision. The force of the impact slammed my face into the steering wheel. I was dazed and confused, wondering, why hadn't the airbags deployed. This is the second incident I've had with this vehicle that was directly related to the ignition switch. And, in both accidents airbags were never deployed. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Received the recall notice and contacted porterville Chrysler. Despite the recall notice about increased risk of occupant injury as well as the potential to cause a collision without warning, they said they had no parts to replace the ones causing the issue, and they had no idea when they would. They claim to have had parts on order for over a year but none have been received and that they could not help me out by complying with the recall notice.

After picking up my vehicle from my local Jeep dealer on the afternoon of Thursday Aug 27th, where it had been for a week for service repairs, one of which was the removal of the console to repair the emergency brake, I noticed that the light on the dashboard showing air bag deactivated was illuminated. I was out of town on vacation until this last Friday Sept. 4th, and I took it back to the dealer this morning, and they did find a wire that was disconnected, but there was a sensor that had failed. They refuse to own up to the fact that they did something during the emergency break repair period that deactivated the air bags and told me the $480 repair to replace the seat sensor is my responsibility. Until this problem is repaired, I cannot safely Transport a passenger in that front seat, so I have at this time no choice but to have this dealer make that repair.

I have a recall that says that the ignition switch can change position while I am driving causing the car to cut off while driving. This can cause a loss in engine power, powere steering, braking assistance and possible failure of air bags causing an accident. The incident that I describe above occurred on interstate 85. I beleive that was what happened as I was able to coast off the raod to an exit. Sat for a while trying to fiqure out what was wrong finally after a while the car started back up and I got to my destination. After reading the article and looking up my VIN number which shows this recall I beleive that is what happended. This recall has been pending for more than a year and Chrysler still says they don't hav the parts to fix it.the Chrysler recall # is 14V-438.

The air bag warning light came on and wouldn't go off....now it goes off for a long period (50-100 miles) and then comes back on.....and off again....and on again. There is a recall #F39, campaign id 06V295000 but I have no way of knowing if this recall was addressed on this vehicle. There is also a recall P41 for ignition switch but I have checked twice and the dealer said they did not have the parts to fix it"??? I called Chrysler and they said the parts are now available"

The air bag indicator light in my car stays on and I was told my air bag bar in my steering wheel is broken. I was also told by a mechanic that if the air bag light is on then the air bags won't deploy in an accident. He also indicated that I may have a broken air bag bar in my steering wheel. This is of great concern as if I do get an accident and my airbags don't work then there may be injuries and possible fatalities.
