My Jeep upon being on the highway and in the right lane suddenly slowed down to the point of stalling and I had to bring the car to the side of the road and began shutting it off when coincidently the the light went on in the roof of the car and my headlight dimmed. I called the Jeep place for an oil change and they diagnoised the car and did a recall on the ignition switch and told me the powertrain transfer case is bad and thermostat leaking from the housing and 4 wheel drive failed. I have never used the 4 wheel drive as I recently purchased the car at the end of April and own it for just 7 months. They said it will cost me over $750. 00 dollars to be fixed. I called Chrysler and they said my vehicle is not included however on your web site NHTSA campain# 13v175000 seems to apply to my diagnoised problems. I love my car but this is a defect in manufacturing and not something that I have done. The previous owner had this car constantly maintained at executive Jeep in north haven CT. I want my car fixed at Chrysler's cost not mine. I drive my car with my grandchildren in it and now feel it is unsafe. . Please help me. I have all records for the car and the diagnostic information should you need it. I also have howard the manager at Jeep phone #.

Nhtsa recall number: 14v-438 recall date: September 3, 2014 manufacturer recall number: p41 "summary: some Jeep Commander and Jeep grand cherokee vehicles may experience an unintended change in ignition switch position while driving. Safety risk: this may result in loss of engine power, power steering, and braking assist increasing the risk of a crash and disabling one or more of the vehicles safety features including the frontal airbags. Remedy: Chrysler intends to repair vehicles free of charge (parts and labor). However, the part required to provide a permanent remedy for this condition is currently not available. Chrysler is making every effort to provide the part as quickly as possible. Recall status: recall incomplete. Remedy not yet available" I have had several incidents where all electrical other than the power train fails, including air-conditioning. If I jiggle my ignition switch everything comes back on. If this recall has such a high risk level of crash, injury, and even death, why hasn't Jeep come up with a remedy. I worked in the united states army combat readiness/safety center which deals with accident investigation and truly understand the risk of injury or even death that comes with this potential materiel failure. If I were the ceo for Jeep or worked in their safety division, I would not put this off any longer. It has been over a year since the discovery of this potential materiel failure and Jeep has done nothing. I recommend that Jeep is proactive to this failure rather than reactive.

After contacting my local Jeep dealership, I am told there still is "no solution" to fix the current ignition switch recall on my Jeep. They have known about this for years. My "official" recall notification was September 2014, and there is no solution yet. How long does one have to wait for a viable solution? why not just install a new ignition switch instead of replacing parts? I believe I have waited long enough, and still no fix. My concern now is with the rush to fix air bad my fix will be delayed even longer. How long is a reasonable time to wait before the government demand action?.
This problem appears to be wide spread. All the intstrument panel warning lights come on and the a/c radio heater tachometer speedometer etc stop working. I investigated online and it seems this is a common problem with no clear cut fix. My Jeep is included in the ignition switch recall and I'm concerned that this is a related problem. There is no eta for the ignition switch parts! I spoke with Chrysler customer service yesterday.
I was driving down the road and the vehicle lost power. I was able to move to the shoulder and bring the vehicle to a stop. There was no power to any system. The ignition switch was in the off position. I was able to restart the vehicle. This is not the first time the vehicle has lost power while driving.

The car stops when it wants rather if I'm in traffic, stop sign, red light, or interstate. . The wheel and the brakes will lock up. I've been calling Chrysler the 1800 number and local dealerships such as picayune ms and slidell la about the situation but nobody seems to care!!! they said the parts isn't in and that its the ignition switch so I payed out of my pockets for the ignition switch and got it put on with the money that I didn't have to spare but obviously that wasn't the problem. . Now my car engine is making raggling and tractor noises. Barely want to start. . Basically I don't have transportation to or from work and school for the fall!!!!!!!!! thanks a lot Chrysler. . .

There has been a recall on the ignition switch since June of 2014 and the dealership keeps telling me they don't have the parts. This is my only vehicle and I have a child and do not want to drive it now.
