Starter Solenoid problems of the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Three problems associated with starter solenoid have been reported for the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Starter Solenoid problem #1
The vehicle involved is a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 1J8GR48K07_. Car would not start. It was towed to the dealership which had to replace the starter solenoid wire. The service department informed me this was a know design defect, but since I was just out of warranty (37k) I would have to cover the cost. If this is a know problem, why isn't it fixed. This starter solenoid problem happened on Wed., Aug. 18, 2010.
Starter Solenoid problem #2
The car was a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1J8HR68217_. In may 2008, 15308 mi on Jeep, slowing for red light, dies, all dash lights com on, no power to steer, no wipers, etc. ; starts back on it's own. Took to dealer, no code, no re-act; has happened intermittent since-safety issue in traffic. Now tranny problem, started sept. 2010, 37,600 mi, code 750, changed solenoid pk in tranny, now code for low pressure send circuit, drives a few miles then goes and stays in 4th gear; 3 months and still not drivable. Need recall for esm and tbs before someone gets killed. Chrysler should stand behind their products & be responsible for design and components. This is very disheartening since both my husband and I own a small biz and are struggling just to keep the doors open and now add the expense of diagnosing Chrysler's problem is just too much! I warranty my work, wear & tear considered, as should Chrysler before someone is hurt or worse- dies trying to get to out of traffic. This issue happened on 09/18/10.
Starter Solenoid problem #3
The car involved was a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4. Black plastic connector that connects yellow wire to starter solenoid comes loose and/or gets dirty or corroded causing it not to make contact and the vehicle will sometimes not start. I've have seen on various online forums with people having this exact same problem. Dealerships always want to replace starter and other parts when it is simply this poor connection thats the problem. Chrysler denies it's a problem and dealer mechanics will not put on a better connector. They just like to keep charging people for new starters and other parts when they don't need them. This loose connection also could also cause a fire, it is an obvious flaw in design and a fire could cause serious injury or death to someone that doesn't realize the connection is bad. It was April 3, 2011 when this starter solenoid issue occurred.
