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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

This vehicle has been to the dealer and corporate has been notified. The situation starts when the weather is below freezing or snowing then turns to rain. The sunroof drain does not work properly causing water to pour out of the center ceiling map lights, the garage door control panel, the driver side column, and the handle to get into the vehicle. This causes a major distraction while driving and also can cause severe electrical damage, water damage to the interior and mold/mildew build up.. corporate claims they know nothing about this situation however currently there is a class action lawsuit vs Chrysler corporation regarding this issue with many different models with the same issue. This situation only occurs during the extreme cold weather change and precipitation. The dealer and Jeep have no answer to rectify this problem.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 8-cyl

  • 77,000 miles
While driving vehicle suddenly stalled wouldn't restart for several tries then finally did. Never stalled again until recently. Sometimes it starts in neutral other times it has to be put in park. Upon restart vehicle drives as if nothing has ever happened. It now stalls at idle or when accelerating or even while driving at a steady rate of speed. I have been paying close attention to the key position and it seems normal in the on position and doesn't seem to be the reason behind this erratic stall situation. Numerous accounts of similar situations have been noted here and on other websites. I keep my vehicle well maintained and tuned, it runs great. Many times weeks or months go by without any stalls.

Driving on highway 91 South check battery light came on then check engine and then all warning lights illuminated. Then speedometer, lights and engine shut off shortly after at 65 mph...very dangerous had to coast to the side of the highway with heavy weekend traffic. Towed Jeep to Chrysler dealer where they got code B229 and B1A35. Dealer replaced win module(ignition) and new keys. Seems to be running okay at the moment. Had to pay dealer almost $800. To rectify not to mention the towing and rental costs. This item should be recalled and we should be reimbursed!
