Unbelievable! Bought this truck for $14k used with 120,000 on it. Multiple issues including shift hesitation from 1st to 2nd gear after being off for7+hrs.

The biggest problem was, one morning I go to start my jeep and the entire dash was off, no signals,no horn,nothing worked! No brake lights! Took it to the best electrical diagnostic in the city and the problem was-

ABS module caused a short circuit which fries the TIPM. Even if you fix the TIPM without fixing the ABS module you will damage it again. I notice the problem while reversing out of my driveway in the morning, the ABS would kick in and my brake pedal would kick back twice and then the problem would go away. It lasted for 1 month then the TIPM went out completely! Would cost about $2500 for entire problem to be fixed and many owners said that it damaged again. Jeeps are not what they used to be. Shame on Chrysler. Jeep leaked engine oil, steering fluid, then the Electrical problems! I traded it in for a Honda civic.... Never again will I buy anything Chrysler! I'm FLAMING mad! Grrr! I drove a 1996 Jeep GC v8 from 100,000 to 250,000 without ever fixing anything except for a fallen muffler and regular part replacement such as brakes , shocks,etc... NEVER would I have thought such a stupid electrical problem would disable my brake lights and signals. I could have lived without the entire dash but the brake lights were a deal breaker. Stay away from jeeps unless you are leasing or have a bumper to bumper warranty. Thank you car complaints.com for allowing me to get this off my chest.

Grand Cherokee Limited 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 109,000 miles

At first my battery light came on saying low battery voltage, I had taken it into get the oil changed and had them check both the battery and alternator, he said both were good, then as time went on the windshield wipers would come on and the radio screen would go blank, now everything goes black, and now my check engine light came on last night, the car acted like it wanted to die, I'm honestly scared to drive it, I've checked to see if it had been recalled but no such luck, anyone have this same problem and how did it get resolved?

Grand Cherokee 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,526 miles

After getting a windshield replaced by Safelite, the very next morning it was pouring rain. I got to work and six hours later when I returned to my car, I began to experience problems. At the first stop light, the horn started honking and the rear wiper started going automatically. My console screen was flashing messages and it all ended with my car turning off and the check engine light coming on. I ended up being able to start it shortly thereafter but while driving on the freeway at 70mph, I began to hear the horn honking again (automatically) and got nervous that it would stop in the middle of the freeway. I exited the first exit and took the feeder road to the Jeep dealership. I explained what had happened and how I felt it was related to the windshield installation. They could not find any link, stating that the TIPM box did not have any moisture, in fact it was "dusty". Of course, this problem is covered under standard warranty and my vehicle had 38k miles, deeming it an out of pocket expense. The TIPM was replaced but my car doesn't feel the same - in fact, it doesn't even smell the same. I'm nervous about driving
