My 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee continually has a problem with the entire control panel shutting down, gauges going to zero, A/C stopping, and headlights turning off when they are on. Recently the vehicle stabilization lights came on and a terrible grinding noise made. This has probably happened 30 times over the past year. It usually happens in about a 5-10 second time span. This past week it stayed that way for around 15 minutes.

Purchased 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee new. Within first 6 months have been taking it bake to the dealer for intermittent lack/stalling. This happens while driving at different speeds and mostly making slight turns or when I begin to turn as well as up and down hill. This has been going on for the last 2 yrs, but most recently has happened alot more offend. I have taken it to the dealer with no result each time. Within the last 2 weeks is has stalled at least 7 times. 9/27/08 I was injured from slamming the breaks and fighting the steering to avoid a head on collision at an intersection while starting to make a turn. I did take it to the dealer and again with no result. The day I dropped it off at the dealer it shut down in their lot. I was told that this would have been recorded in the codes, but they told me they found nothing. The next day it stalled while dropping my son off at school. He was with me when I was injured so I can prove it does happen. I did call the dealer back and that was 3 days ago. They will not return my phone call let alone honor my warranty. This car is not safe.

Update: The braking system, primary and emergency, failed at approximately 6:30 am 5/13/2008. My wife was unable to bring the vehicle under control traveling down an unpaved hill and had a head-on collision with a boulder. We have called the attorney and we are awaiting a call bck at this time. Chrysler and scheid are going to wish they never heard of me now. They can shove their bs "repurchase" offers up their┐!@#$%.
