My emergency brake light is flashing on my dash board, and it is making a chiming noise when flashing as I drive my Jeep. The main issue other than having it going on and off some time a few time a day sometimes not for a week than a few days in a row is that when I am on an open highway with cruise control on doing 70 mph the cruise control will shut off every time it flashes. I fell the this is a safety issue when your cruise controls shuts down without any warning. The dealer has not corrected this issue. I just got a recall notice to day s27/NHTSA 16v-240 to make sure my vehicle is in park and foot brake on. My foot brakes says it is on at 70 mph when it is not on. This happened a lot today on my trip, but has been going on for over a year.

This morning5/16/16 I turned my Grand Cherokee on,proceeded to drive to work, I felt that the car was not changing gears, it hesitates and the engine light came on an off,after driving about 4 miles the car stopped and went into neutral without me changing gears. This is not the first problem I have since I purchased this vehicle. It has been at the dealer more than one time for the same problem, which include: self-accelaration while driving, stalling in high way, and few other recalls from the company. It has been a night mare since I purchased this 2014 Grand Cherokee, one problem after the other! more than dissapointed with this car.

Problem stared approximately 2 weeks ago. The rear hatch on the vehicle would not unlock. Once I started the vehicle and drove it would eventually begin working again. Its beginning to happen more frequently and now the passenger and drivers door(s) are affected. I noticed in many Jeep forums that a strong possibility exists that the tipm is bad. I've already had my vehicle in for the tipm recall for the fuel pump. I didn't have any issues before the recall but now I'm noticing more "glitchy" electrical issues starting to pop up.

About a month after purchasing my used Jeep, I was coming to a stop on a city street and my Jeep powered off completely. After taking the Jeep in to the dealership they fixed the fuel pump relay, which was recalled ,and sent me on my way. Since then my Jeep has powered off 5 times (once while entering the highway, twice while exiting the highway, once while making a u-turn under the highway and once on a city street) each time while braking. I've had no power brakes or steering each time.

Brought vehicle in for oil change (only oil change). Jeep dealer gave back vehicle back with a new ignition stating there was a recall on it without me asking or authorizing them to do so. Now I have a new ignition that is not flush with the dash (sticks out about half an inch) and does not work properly with my original keys. My keys are extremely difficult to go in and out of the ignition and on 2 separate occasions the key was unable to be removed from the ignition resulting in the acc being left on overnight and being forced to take vehicle to dealer in the morning with a dead battery. Dealer states I need to purchase a new key because my keys are original and the ignition they replaced is brand new and are not synced up. The service manager told me it is my problem to purchase new keys for the Jeep that had no issues prior to them replacing the ignition. Called Jeep customer service and they told me I would be given a new key but than put me on hold for 20 minutes and told me it is actually my responsibility to purchase a new key after they changed out my ignition.
