The wire harness going to the driver door is not long enough so when you open the door the wires will become lose or disconnect as a result in the power locks, power mirrors, power windows, evic center to malfunction and the all the dome lights remain on. And I'm not the only vehicle to have had this problem there are hundreds wrote on the Jeep forum.

Both left side & right side rear brake lights fail when applying brakes with headlights on. The 3rd brake light above rear hatch door does operate however. All 3 rear brake lights do operate properly with headlights off (daytime driving). Condition exists when car is in motion on city streets or highways or while stationary either parked or idling. Turn signals or back up lights are not affected.

Had my Jeep for about 4 years now, and I've recently had many issues with it. For one, there's a recall, which parts are not available right now for an orc sensor. The recall letter said there may be a chance that it could cause an electrical distress on the computer. Now, I don't know if these caused many electrical issues or not, but I'd like to see something done about it. Around later November 2012 I took the Jeep to get the ac/heater work because it wasn't working. Paid $400, labor and parts. Also got my signal lights fixed, because they weren't working either. Few months pass, now its March 2013. The signal lights work when they want, even after getting it fixed. The right signal light works fine, the left works when it wants. My driver foglight went out. I don't have a bad bulb so what is it" few weeks later, driver headlight goes out. Again, no blown bulb. Few more weeks pass, and my ac/heater stopped working again. Why" also, the driver tail light, at times goes out. No bad bulb. I feel as if I give it more time, the problem is just going to get worse. We need to look into this problem.
