I have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee srt. I was at a stop light in the turn left lane. Once the light changed green I pressed accelerator and while turning all power cut out on the vehicle. While in traffic I coasted to the side of the road. The vehicle restarted after I can to a full stop power appeared to come back on and I pushed the start button with foot on brake. Second event happened 9/10/14 again I was in the left hand turn lane (different street) and when light changed I pressed accelerator and while starting the turn all power instantly went out rendering the vehicle totally disabled in traffic. Once I got it into a safe spot I called and tried to have it jump started. This did not work at all. Total power failure no response and had to be towed to dealer. Very dangerous situations.

Failure Date: 09/08/2014

I was driving on the highway and the vehicle shut off, the lights started flashing and there was no power to the vehicle. I thought I was going to die!!! it was very hard but I got it to the shoulder. I called 911 and my insurance company and they had it towed to the nearest dealer. They could not use a normal tow truck they hat to use dolly wheels, since everything was locked. My lights continued to flash for over six hours till the dealer could get them shut off, it blew my fog lights and a turn signal. They said it was the tipm and they luckily had one. This was to be all fixed back in February.

My Jeep was having problems starting for 3 weeks now but the dealer couldn't look at it until 9/9/14 on Tuesday 9/2/14 it stalled while doing 55 mph on the long island expressway, I was able to coast to the shoulder and able to get the car started after about a dozen tries. I called the dealer and tried to get in earlier because on my concern about safety. They told me I was lucky I still had the appointment that I had because they are overbooked. It would not start at all on Friday 9/5/14 I had it towed to another dealer that diagnosed it as a faulty tipm. And it would cost me 1098 to fix because the warranty will not cover it. After looking up the problem I see that this is a serious issue with my model. This is a serious problem with the engine stalling at speed. Chrysler should fix this for free!.

While driving at 65 mph the vehicle shuts off and will not start until the vehicle cools and will run for a while and shut off but this time it will take hours before it starts again which it would begin to repeat the process of shutting off. I changed all the sensors and had the fuel pump checked out but it still shuts off.

Electrical dash panel goes on and off while driving, and when it is off we loose brake lights, head lights, windshield wipers, turn signals, tail lights, etc. Chrysler dealers say they do not know whats going bad and they cannot repair these Jeeps. It,s unsafe to drive. This is a common problem for the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee's. We can hit the dash at our left knee and the lights and gauges will come back on for awhile, then go off again.

I had driven approximately 520 miles enroute to my vacation home and was driving with the cruise control activated and seatbelts were in use by both myself and passenger. Suddenly and at the same time the seatbelt and airbag warning lights came on and within a few seconds the cruise control disengaged and the message "acc/fcw unavailable service required" popped up on the dashboard. For the duration of my vacation the vehicle was operational however I had no cruise control. Contacted two Jeep dealers in the area and they were too booked up to service my vehicle. Upon my return home I took it in to my Jeep dealer. Here is the exact quote from their service invoice as to what was discovered: "found many modules with loss of communications with the orc module (airbag module) with codes in them. Found orc to have an internal fault, replaced and set up orc module".
