Air Bag Light On problem #2
The car was a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The air bag light turned on so I took it in to mack massey Jeep dealership on 950 crockett st. In el paso, TX. The person advising me from the mechanics department told me I was very lucky to take it in when I did because some part having to do with the air bags had melted & my airbags could have opened up at any time. He said he deactivated all the airbags in my vehicle. The total to have them fixed was way more than I can afford. It also affected the center seat belt so I don't have a seat belt as well. I don't think any part of the original parts should be melting with nothing more than the sun heat. This air bag light on problem happened on 06/20/2012.

Air Bag Light On problem #8
As I drive my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee( hemi)the vehicle simply shuts off. All the lights on the dashboard turn on then the car turns off. I end up with no control. Sometimes this happens and then the vehicle turns on all by itself while im driving. About a week after I purchased it, I had this problem but the dealer said it was fine. As I took it to the gas station across the street, it happened. The dealership employees witnessed it and were nice enough to run over and pushed the vehicle back to the shop. They said they couldn't find anything but replaced the battery just in case. Since then it happens at once every two months. Currently, I have an airbag issue. The dealer cannot seem to repair any of these issues. The airbag lights turn on indicated the airbags are off because it does not sense anyone on the seats. It has been to the dealership 3 times for this issue and I am waiting for a call back to return it so they can install an ecm. They think it may be the issue. This will be the fourth visit for the airbags. Seems the vehicle has a lot of electrical problems. I have not driven the vehicle since December 22nd. It is now Feb 25. I am afraid of going over the warranty miles. It was Sat., Dec. 20, 2008 when this air bag light on issue happened.
