[additional notes: had to replace the esm at 28596 miles, Jeep loss of engine power and all lights lit up on gear shifter, at 27170 miles had to replace both front window regulators]. It was October 22, 2010 when this automatic transmission control module issue happened.
#3 - Automatic Transmission Control Module problem of the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle was a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4. While the contact was driving approximately 65 mph, the entire instrument panel illuminated intermittently. The vehicle suddenly began to decelerate. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnostic testing on two occasions for the similar failure. The technician stated the problem could possibly be contributed to the esm or either the pcm. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the defect. The approximate failure mileage was 50,000. The VIN was unavailable. This automatic transmission control module problem happened on Wednesday, March 10, 2010.
#4 - Automatic Transmission Control Module problem of the 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle is a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The VIN of this Grand Cherokee is 1J4GZ58S7V_. Engine stalls either at speed or during idle after 20 minutes. Will continue to stall for about 4 minutes, sometimes very hard to start during this time. Then vehicle will run fine with no problems for several hours. The next day, or after vehicle has been sitting for several hours, the process will start again. Every day it will stall after about 20 minutes - sometimes while turning, which will cause a total loss of steering ability, or while on the freeway, or while at a red light or intersection. I narrowly escaped an accident when it stalled and a big rig almost slammed into me. I have been stranded in the middle of a busy intersection multiple times because of this. When the car stalls, sometimes it runs very rough and backfires, which caused the catalytic converter to blow out. Now the catalytic converter rattles and caused my emissions test to fail with high no(ppm) output. I'm going to need to change the pcm and the catalytic converter to fix this, but this was covered under a recall for 1996 vehicles with this same problem. Jeep issued an emissions recall in late 2006 to update the powertrain control module (pcm) software on certain 1996 vehicles. As part of the recall, the catalytic converter will also be inspected for damage and replaced as necessary. 1997 vehicles experiencing the exact same problem were not included in this recall for some reason. Please include the 1997 vehicles in this recall. This problem occurred on Wednesday, July 13, 2011.

#6 - Automatic Transmission Control Module problem of the 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle involved is a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1J4FX58S9T_. At high and low speeds, and when stopped without any warning my 1996 Grand Cherokee will die and immediately steering is lost. This is totally frightening and life-threatening. The car will start immediately to get out of roadways. I've spent days researching this situation on-line and it is outrageous that there is no recall, there are years of complaints about this situation . I called Jeep today at 1-877-426-5337 and was told the phone number of a Jeep dealer, along with sincere apologies that there is no recall for this problem. The solution may be that 2 screws associated with the pcm are too long. People have spent thousands and thousands of dollars fixing everything on these Jeeps but nothing has worked. I respectfully demand to know why there is no recall, this is a public safety issue!!!!! thank you for your prompt reply. Lives depend on it. This is a life-endangering situation - mine and others. There needs to be a recall now. This automatic transmission control module problem happened on May 4, 2012.

#8 - Automatic Transmission Control Module problem of the 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle was a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4. 2008 Grand Cherokee 4x4 4. 7l flexfuel stalling at various highway speeds. Throttle lagging, harsh up/down shifting, hesitation on torque demand, fuel mileage reduced by 20%. After the first two stalling occurrences, the dealership replaced the fcm (front control module) since the serial number of the installed one-337- matched the February 2008 recall, although Chrysler database VIN recall search came back empty??!!
the third and fourth stalling events were followed up by the replacement of the pcm (powertrain control module) since a "soft fault"-"torque request denied" was found stored within the controller. However, after six hundred miles, a fifth stalling occurred. This time a hard fault related to the map sensor (intake manifold absolute pressure) was found. The replacement was scheduled in 48 hours. There were six dealership appointments(only two documented though ??!!) and it was invariably either "we have to order the part" or "there is nothing wrong we could point at". The almost new vehicle is not safe to be driven on public roads. Yet Chrysler never provided a temporary replacement until the safety hazard could be located and eliminated. After every attempt of solving the problem, the customer is sent away to try his (her) good luck with a vehicle which might be okay. I don't think this a professional approach for both Chrysler and the dealership servicing the vehicle. Guessing and safety does not belong within the same sentence !. This automatic transmission control module issue occurred Saturday, October 11, 2008.

#10 - Automatic Transmission Control Module problem of the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I recently leased a new 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3. 7 l , 6 cylinders. This was the second time in less than a month that the vehicle stalled while driving at highway speed 50 mph) and local speed 30 mph. The vehicle suddenly lost power and could not be driven at more than 20 mph, and the indicator gauges seem ed stuck in place. Also, the vehicle shut off when making a sharp turn into a parking space at work. The first incident occurred on a major highway in new york city ,and my fear was that another vehicle would rear end my vehicle. We had the vehicle towed to the original purchasing location at additional costs to us, and they stated that the problem was related to the shift controller, transmission not sending the proper signal for it to shift properly. They told us they would replace the solenoid, and it should be fine. This was less than a month ago, and now my wife was unwilling to drive the vehicle for fear of being stuck in traffic or being involved in an accident. I will be taking the vehicle back to the dealer on 7/9/07. Any additional information you could provide to address this problem was greatly appreciated. I will also contact daimler/Chrysler corporate headquarters in the morning. This automatic transmission control module issue occurred Jul. 8, 2007.

#17 - Automatic Transmission Control Module problem of the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
We own a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When the vehicle was 2 years old and at 35,000 miles the check engine light came on indicating the transmission control module. This was replaced under warranty. My husband was kind of concerned that they had the part in stock for a two year old vehicle but we had it fixed and went on. Now it is three years later at 89,000 miles and the same part needs to be replaced. They want us to pay 750 to have it replaced. We filed a case with Chrysler and they want us to have it diagnosed for 89. 00 at their dealer and then they will discuss whether they will help pay for it or not. There are many other people on the web that have had the same issues. Our car will light up all the gears when you are driving down the road and will not shift properly due to the engine not understanding what gear we are in. I do not want to have to worry that they fixed it and helped us this time but in 2-3 years we have to do this all over again for the same part. The gentleman my husband first talked to at the dealer we consulted before talking with Chrysler stated that he has also replaced this same piece in his Chrysler 300 twice. I have also seen on the car forums that the Jeep commander is doing the same thing and there are numerous complaints out there about the 05 Jeep cherokee. I would like to know why Chrysler continues to put this part that is obviously not working in their vehicles. This is causing issues for the cars and I am not convinced I want another Chrysler product. The gear shift should not be having parts replaced. I have been around many vehicles and never had this type of problem. I do not understand why a recall or something hasn't been done on this particular part. Why would they not find a new way to do this type of gear shift that doesn't fall apart in two years of driving. This is a family vehicle. This is not a race car or even a 4wd. I just want to get help in case others are still dealing with this. This automatic transmission control module problem happened on Aug. 24, 2010.

#19 - Automatic Transmission Control Module problem of the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle was a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Incident 1, on Saturday February 5, 2005 while maneuvering into a space in a parking lot I shifted into reverse with my foot on the brake suddenly the car, 2004, Jeep, Grand Cherokee lurched backward. I pressed more firmly on the brake pedal and car jerked. Then, the engine revved higher, causing the car to hurtle toward cars in the row behind. Only by standing on the brake pedal did the vehicle stop, but just inches from a car behind us. Dealer's mechanic subsequently could find nothing wrong ,and could not duplicate the event. Incident 2 occurred on Wednesday April 20, 2005. While braking gently when approaching a red traffic light the engine suddenly started revving quickly. I braked harder, but the engine revved higher, overcoming the braking effort I again stood on the brake, bringing the car to a halt only a few feet from a car waiting at the light. Examination of the brake pedal at this time showed that my foot was only on the brake pedal, and not near the accelerator pedal, and that nothing was pressing on the accelerator pedal. It was Apr. 20, 2005 when this automatic transmission control module issue occurred.

#20 - Automatic Transmission Control Module problem of the 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle involved is a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The VIN of this vehicle was 1J4GX48S12_. The cooling fan blade just broke while stopped at a light. It made the car thump I thought someone hit us but the fan blades broke the fan shrode and put dents all in the radiator and broke the fan guard. This vechile has had many of the same problems due to the electrical system. We lease the Jeep and have put $$$ in it because they would not take it back as a lemon with in the 2 years. I still hear a beep coming from under the dash that Jeep never found the problem or fixed it. I just had the fan relay changed because it went out. With in the first 2 years I had it in the shop for a variety of electrical problems I have all the paper work. I am afraid the Jeep will catch on fire or cause an accident. I've also checked many other things that were issues with the Jeep. Leaking shocks and transmission pan and emissions is now leaking. The check engine light stays on and every time I get it checked it's a different problem. I'm out of my warranty now but there have been so many different things wrong. The dealer replaced 2 of 4 leaking shocks they left the transmission pan loose when they replaced a part in the transmission. This Jeep is unsafe for the road it has lost power in the past while traveling so they replaced the battery twice with in a month. It was Jun. 16, 2005 when this automatic transmission control module issue occurred.

#23 - Automatic Transmission Control Module problem of the 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle involved is a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Transmission/powertrain/electrical components/brakes at just over 36,000 miles the powertrain/transmission module failed. There were three minor incidents where when I was accelerating normal into traffic the transmission roared and spun, but the vehicle would not move, I shifted into neutral after letting up on the gas, then shifted back into drive and the transmission "kicked in". The fourth time this occurred, however, was when I was accelerating to merge onto the freeway, the vehicle lost power and I had to coast over to the shoulder of the highway onramp and the vehicle was towed to the dealership. A sensor or transmission control module was replaced at a cost in excess of $500 (just out of warranty) to me. At 50,000 miles while driving along the road, I heard a loud bang and thought I had a blowout of a tire. It was not the tire however, it was the passenger side power window. Something inside the door popped and the window fell down in the door. Another bill in excell of $500. Now at 63,001 miles, the transmission once again just would not go into gear. As I tried to accelerate off my street, the engine whined as though I were in neutral but it would not kick in. It would only go in reverse, none of the forward gears would make the car go forward. It was towed to our mechanic who says the entire transmission must now be replaced. This automatic transmission control module problem happened on 04/07/04.

#31 - Automatic Transmission Control Module problem of the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle was a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1J4GW68N4X_. Engine dies at any speed without warning and without illuminating the check engine light. No error codes are stored. It acts as if someone just turned the ignition key to off and all of the gauges on the instrument panel are zeroed to the left but everything else electrical still works, starter, power windows, radio, horn, lights, power-seats, etc. Etc. . This tends to happen more often on warm days, over 88 degrees f and seems to be a shutdown of the pcm which controls the fuel pump, fuel injectors and the ignition system. When the pcm shuts down, it drops output to pcm's computer bus called the ccd. I changed the parts that the dealer wanted to change like the fuel pump, crank and cam sensors and cleaned a host of other sensors but the problem remains. The problem is with the pcm. The dealer denies coverage because the mileage has just crept over 80,000 miles although I began discussing it with them and buying parts from them back on March 5, 2005. This is an extremely dangerous condition that warrants the pcm, p/n rl044427ac through aj, on the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee be recalled. This automatic transmission control module issue occurred Saturday, March 5, 2005.

Jerks and flashes check engine light for one second occasionally while driving at normal road speeds. Happens multiple times a day under no specific conditions (cold, hot, wet, dry, etc. ) intermittent problem so codes cannot be detected. First occurrence was in heavy mid day city traffic in the middle of a turn. Could not be restarted from park for 10 minutes, blocked entire intersection and entrance to plaza. Was almost hit by oncoming vehicles multiple times. Has the potential to be extremely dangerous if this happens in traffic as it has before. Bought used. Appears to have had pcm, air filter, plugs and wires replaced. Stalling issue is obviously extremely prevalent amongst this vehicle and must be addressed by the responsible companies before someone is killed, likely before more people are killed. This automatic transmission control module problem happened on Jan. 15, 2011.
