12 problems related to air bag light on have been reported for the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Every time while driving the air bag light on dash is always on. Then upon driving, suddenly the seat belt alarm starts buzzing even though all seat belts are latched properly. Then the engine light will come on. Shortly after the dash goes completely black. All alarms and lights go out along with the heating/ac. This is on a routine basis.
While driving my vehicle it just shut down without any warning and I had to guide it to the side of the road to restart it. Thankfully I was driving in a neighborhood where I could do this, it did this a couple of times in one outing, now its every so often. So far it has not done it while I'm out on an interstate but I try to stay close to home til it can be fixed. Plus when I have on my lights my dashboard lights blink on and off . Then here recently the air bag light started flashing and a few days ago it stayed on and hasn't shut off. I've talked to the Jeep dealership about this and they said that they don't have the parts to fix the recall item p41/ NHTSA 14v-438 and I'm liable for the airbag issue. From what I have read online all of these issues are connected. I received a letter on the recall a few months back but have not heard anything back on when I can get it fixed at the dealership. Please advise on what steps I should take to get the parts for this recall so I can enjoy driving my vehicle again. Thanks again.
The contact owns a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The contact stated that the engine was started and the air bag warning indicator illuminated continuously until the engine was turned off. In addition, the horn would not function when activated. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for diagnosis. The technician advised that the air bag clock spring was faulty. There was a recall associated with the 2002 and 2003 model years under NHTSA campaign id number 12v527000 (air bags:frontal:sensor/control module) but not the 2005 model. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the defect. The approximate failure mileage was 100,000.
The air bags light coomes on and stays on, the fuel system light comes on and stays on. When checked by mechanic was told some sort of sensor. The speed control does what it wants it can go from 45mph to 20mph and the vrhicle tries to cut itself off I have to emediately put it in neutral to prevent that from happening.
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.
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.

Jeep about had the one the airbag light comes on, I take it to the dealer where I purchased the seat buckle, a year later light goes on,I take it back to the dealer and they replace the buckle again. 6 months later light goes back on the warranty had just past but the dealer fixed it again. 6 months later the light goes back on and I go back to the dealer and they went out of business, I took it to another dealer and told them what happened they charged me $150. 00 to tell me that I had to replace the entire seat belt harness, I already new that. So I just kept diving it, around 2011 the lights and all gauges started to go out as I was driving no gauges at all no break light no headlights, everything just blinks for a few min, than back to normal, I went on line to see how big the problem was and there is a lot of people that is having the same problem. I took it to the dealer and they told me that it could be a lot of things, I told them it was the ignition, while driving if I hold on the key in the ignition and move it around all the gauges and lights start to flash. I told that to the dealer and they told me that it would cost me to look into it and try to fix it, in know its the ignition one day while I am driving at night my lights are going to turn off or even the engine and get into an accident. There is a big problem with the 2005 Jeeps and Chrysler does not want to do a recal.
