Failure Date: 09/20/2016

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee sagety recal # s55/NHTSA 16v-529 transaxle wire harness. I received a safety recall notice with instructions to call my local dealership to arrange service. I called the dealership and was told by the service department that the necessary parts required to do the repair was not made available to any dealership yet. I was told by the service department to wait another month or two for the second recall notice to arrive by mail to call and make the appointment. I asked if, in the meantime, I was to hope and pray that an accident is not caused by this recall item in the interim, and the service department replied , "yes. " I then call the fca recall assistance center at fca and was told the same thing. Unacceptable practices given the fact that the recall notice clearly states that, " . . . The system defaults the transaxle to neutral and the customer experiences a loss of motive power. . . . . The loss of motive power could cause a crash without warning. ".

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee laredo with 3. 7 liter motor shows all four gears park neutral reverse and drive "prnd" active at the same time and the check engine obdii code u0103 (can bus communication lost with the shifter). This condition reoccurs every 1 to 7 days approximately. While in this mode the vehicle is in limp mode stuck in 2nd gear. I tried to drive it to the dealership twice with this condition on back roads but it will clear after driving for about 5 miles in limp mode. I had the vehicle towed to the Jeep dealership with this condition present. It cleared while they were trying to diagnose problem and they couldn't get it to repeat while driving it with my permission for three weeks. They were unable to diagnose the problem and no repairs were made. I got my vehicle back after three weeks at dealeship and problem reoccurred after two days of driving. Trying to drive this vehicle in limp mode is very dangerous as you cannot exceed about 30 miles per hour causing dangerous conditions to myself and other drivers on roads with speed limits higher than 30 mph. This is a serious safety issue and the dealership can't diagnose the problem. In the meantime I am stuck with a very unsafe vehicle.

09 Jeep Grand Cherokee electrical issue - second occurrence: lost all dash gauges, speedometer, lighting, radio, turn signals, no brake lights and heat/ac while driving down the highway. I took the vehicle immediately to the dealer with the issue showing. I was told that someone would look at the vehicle, however, I had to leave the vehicle with the dealer overnight. It appears the dealer did not look at the vehicle until the next day. Dealer returned the vehicle unable to determine the problem. Told to bring the vehicle back when the problem occurs again. This is a safety issue which could have resulted in an accident. The vehicle should be recalled for safety concerns. This is my second complaint to NHTSA.

1st the sensor for "key not detected" displayed. I had it fixed at the dealership. Shortly after, it returned but this time all the sensors on the dash lit up and the vehicle transmission dropped in gear. Almost got rear ended by a truck on the highway. The speedometer shut down and the wipers turned on. I pulled over and turned off the vehicle. Once it finally restarted, it would not get off the park gear. Finally after 4 attempts it restarted and I was able to drive home. It died in my driveway. Would not restart . I had it towed to the dealer. Its been there for approx. 2 weeks. They said they cant find the problem and have called they're techs at they're corporate head quarter's to assist them. According to many forums on line this seems to be a common problem. This should be a recall. The dealer admitted to finding a melted part. This is a costly repair that they claim my warranty will not cover! my vehicle dramatically dropped in speed while driving on a major highway. If that's not considered a safety issue and the fact that there is an obvious fire hazard with the dash or the fuse box is insane!! there is a high potential for an electrical fire to break out due to a faulty design. The vehicle is electronic and the transmission has features that changes the operation of the vehicle while driving! I would like to see anyone drive in front of a tractor trailer on a major highway and suddenly drop the transmission to 1st gear (high rpm and dramatically drops speed) and see how all of the sudden you can create a major accident like I almost did! this needs to be looked into.

I was advised by larry h miller in albuquerque nm that my recall was fixed and that I would need to pay for a diagnostic to see why the " service 4wheel drive system" light was still on even though I had been there 2 times in past and issue was said to be resolved by a system update. I left the dealership after I was told it was about 280$ that I would have to pay to get the issue fixed-.
