#1 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The vehicle involved was a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4. On the weekend of 6/9/12, my vehicle began giving starting problems and shutting down while driving. The dealerships service department was closed so I had to wait until Monday 6/11/12. I made several attempts on that day to have the vehicle checked out but the service department kept giving me a run around. The vehicle spent the night at the dealership and was checked the following day. I received a call that my vehicle is ready and was informed that a flash was done and a new computer had to be ordered that's why the check engine light is on. Left the dealership and the vehicle shut off once again while driving and when I attempted to restart it was giving the hard start once again. On 6/16/12 the vehicle was fully un-operational and had to be towed to the dealership. It sat there until the part arrived and was installed. On 6/21/12 I picked it up once again it's suppose to be working great because the computer was replaced. Less than an hour later it did not want to start again. I carried it back down on 6/22/12 and on the way there the vehicle shut down. Later that day found out another part had to be ordered. 6/29/12 my vehicle was ready again and said to be working great and it was because the hard start problem was fixed but the shutting down was not fixed because it occurred once again on 7/1/13 and has been happening constantly for over a year. This problem occurred on Saturday, June 9, 2012.

#3 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The car is a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Check engine light (cel) is on with p0300 and p0302 codes, exhaust escaping #2 piston head- causing rough idling, cel flashes, and several stalls while in motion. Found out this is "common" on pentastar engines, and parts are not readily available from Chrysler to make repairs, and dealers let people drive the car instead of providing alternative transportation. They should have to repair and replace these heads that have now been redesigned in more current builds. Letting people drive cars that can stall in motion is dangerous. Not having parts readily available when they are having 300 to 400 of these failures a week is ridiculous. The attached link shows that Chrysler had this part shortage since last summer, and is not meeting the demand for replacements even now. This issue happened on May 14, 2013.. Read more...

#18 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I own a new 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I had for two weeks with approximately 500 miles on it. A couple of days after purchase I called the dealer to tell them that the engine service light was on. They said no to bring vehicle to dealer as it was probably due to a loose gas cap, and would go away in a couple of days. However, this week when driving on the highway at 70 mph the Jeep stalled. The fuel gauge dropped to empty from 3/4 full, and there was no acceleration on the vehicle. Fortunately I was able to coast to the far shoulder of the road. I took the key out and restarted the engine, and the full guage went back up to 3/4 full and I was able to resume driving. I brought it to the dealer and they were unable to replicate the problem. . . . They said the vehicle is fine. The reset the computer so the engine light went off. The next day after bringing it home from the dealer, the engine light came on again and I am bringing it back in next week. I have already contacted a lemon law attorney as I fully expect the problem to happen again. I saw an article that you were conducting an investigation on this problem, and wanted to add my name to the list as this stalling problem is extremely dangerous. I feel very fortunate that I did not crash after losing power at 70 mph on a crowded highway. Thank you for any help you can provide. It was 06/25/2007 when this check engine light on issue happened.
#19 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Without warning while driving 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee with crd (common rail diesel) engine with about 4,000 miles on odometer under light load in light traffic with about 3/4 tank of fuel on a hilly rural highway at about 50 mph the mil ("check engine light") turned on and within a second or so, if not simultaneously, the red error light indicating malfunction in the electronic throttle control system illuminated and began flashing. Driver immediately slowed to 30 to 35 mph, activated emergency flashers, and changed route to return vehicle home, at that point about a 15 mile trip on a combination of hilly rural highways and suburban arterial roads. About 10 miles later while climbing a hill in a blind curve on a rural highway with no shoulder in moderate traffic at about 35 mph the engine stalled bringing vehicle to halt. In the shoulderless blind curve there was neither visibility nor room for following traffic to pass, thus creating an extremely dangerous condition. Driver was able to restart vehicle but it then seemed to operate in "limp home mode" and did not seem able to move faster than about 20 to 25 mph before stalling again. Vehicle then stalled repeatedly in the last 5 or so miles back to home on hilly rural highway in moderate traffic, and restarting attempts became progressively more difficult. By the time vehicle was returned to owner's property the engine would not start except to run for a few seconds before shutting off, and vehicle having become completely undriveable then had to be pushed to a safe place to await tow to selling dealer for service. Driver contacted selling dealers service department to report problem, and service appointment and tow to selling dealer are pending. This problem occurred on Sep. 6, 2007.
#20 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
1. My 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee (5. 7 hemi; 64k miles) was due for a tune up. I purchased replacement spark plugs that were recommended from a local auto parts retailer and changed them. 2. Subsequently the vehicle began to stall frequently while driving (approx 5 times in 25 miles traveled). This happened while driving at highway speeds, at stoplights and when making left hand turns. 3. Vehicle was taken to dealer for service as engine light had also been on during entire time. Dealer worked on trying to find problem for 3 weeks. After consulting a Chrysler engineer they finally discovered that the aftermarket platinum tip spark plugs were causing interference with the vehicle powertrain control module and causing the engine to stall. Dealer replaced the spark plugs and the problem was corrected. I went back to my parts supplier and they had never heard of this problem before. I also notified Chrysler of my complaint that consumers and parts supply retailers should be made aware of this parts incompatibility issue that they are obviously aware of because it is a potentially serious safety hazard. They have not responded to me. This problem occurred on 09/08/2010.

I have had it 3 1/2 months now and about a week and a half ago the vehicle started to idle rough when I'd come to a red light. Then the next day I my wife used the Jeep and stated that the engine light was on and it felt like it wanted to stall. I brought it to the dealer and they said that I blew an injector and the other injectors had carbon build up in them. My Jeep only has 27,00 miles on it. They changed the injector and then cleaned the others. It was still under warranty. I was suppose to leave Sunday may 14th to drive to NY from fla. On Friday may 13th the Jeep started acting up again. It ran worse than the previous time. I brought it back and stated that it is worse and I need the problem corrected ASAP because I am traveling to NY on Sunday,2 days later. They hooked it up to the computer and came back and stated that they would have to replace the pcm in the vehicle. They said that the control board was bad. Now I am paying for a lease car,I am without my Jeep,and was suppose to have left for NY on Sunday. It is now Monday. I believe that when you purchase a vehicle that said vehicle should be reliable. My Jeep only has 27,000 miles on it, it shouldn't have a computer problem yet. The dealer is supposedly fixing the situation. But from what I have been reading here,I may have a ongoing situation. What recourse do I have. Do I have a case for the lemon law?. This issue happened on Monday, May. 15, 2006.
