I took my 2011 Grand Cherokee to the dealer for the normal maintenance. However, there were a couple of recalls so I asked them to take care of them. Recalls were related to the fuel pump relay and to the sun visor (which apparently can short-circuit and cause a fire). There was a firmware update for the tipm also so I got that done too. 3 weeks later, I get on my car, I put the ignition to on and the wipers went on, I tried to turn them off and I couldn't. This is a list of all the symptoms: - turn signals not working - rear wiper not working - front wipers on - traction control off and no way to turn it back on - buttons on the steering wheel not working, none of them, except for the ones that control the radio - heated steering wheel, tow/haul, traction control and 110v plug switches not responding - interior lights not working - headlights worked but no way to control high or low beams I did some research online, found that some other people were having the same issue and some of them said that they had the issue resolved by leaving the battery unplugged overnight, it didnt work. I took the wipers out (since I couldn't turn them off) and took my car to the dealer (without turn signals). They've had the car for 2 days already, yesterday they called me back and told me they were still trying to determinate the issue but that it could be a defective tipm. I have no idea of how much this is going to cost to get fixed but the truth is, I got this car 2 months ago, looked perfectly fine, very well maintained and now I will probably have to put more money out of my pocket to get this thing resolved. Reading on the forums I have also become aware of the big safety issues that a faulty tipm may cause, read of people's cars stalling in the middle of traffic! I am really concerned now about my safety and I wish I didn't buy this car.

When I'm driving while in motion in a straight line all of a sudden my dash lights flicker and my ac stutters on and off and then all power stops and my brakes more or less lock up but not all the way but the engine still runs . . . . I'm not sure if the windows stop working or not but its been happening a few times and it seems like its going to need a tow truck but when I pull over off the highway and turn it off and restart it resets its self my Jeep only has 78,000 miles on it because it was sitting in storage for 6 years while I was out of the states so it did not get driven and the dealership took it and changed all belts fluids and gave it a checkup before I drove it again.

On June 5, 2016 @ 2:00am I was awakened by popping sounds from outside. I got up to see an orange ball of light, I went to the window and felt the heat from it and seen my Jeep was on fire. If not for the fire department showing up my house would have likely burned also. The car was parked under the carport in the driveway and no one was driving it the previous day.

I've contacted my dealer at ray brandt chryster Dodge Jeep located at 1660 westbank expy, harvey, la 70058 in reference to the important safety recall of the "auto park" feature. I explained to them that my vehicle may roll away, striking and injuring me, my wife, or baby even though the vehicle indicates it is in park. The employee advised that there is nothing that he can do. I then stated, "so, I'm am just suppose to hope that my vehicle does not slip out of gear?" I felt that this was a bit ridiculous and extremely unprofessional. I am unpleased with the way I was treated and the outcome of my service request. This needs to get rectified immediately or I will have to take further action. Thank you for your assistance in advance.

On two occasions while standing in my garage with the Jeep parked and not used or running for days, the instrument panel suddenly comes alive inside the vehicle without opening the door, touching the door handle, or having the remote key transponder anywhere near the vehicle (they were both inside the house nowhere near the vehicle at the time and I was many feet away from the vehicle. ) I can hear the vehicle electrical system "boot up" and then shut back down. I have on many other occasions heard the electrical system "boot up" and power back down without the dashboard display coming alive. Once again, no key fob was near the vehicle nor the door opened or touched when I have been out in my garage to witness this and the vehicle has not been driven for days.

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.

Vehicle was stationary, in park with engine idling. Standing outside of vehicle, I opened door to reach in to turn ignition off. As soon as I hit ignition, car accelerated forward dragging me about 10 yards. I was not in vehicle and held on to steering wheel and open door to keep from getting run over. It collided with vehicle parked in front of me, luckily in an empty parking lot and no one was injured. There is surveillance camera on site and this incident was captured on video. Witnesses were present and CO-workers viewing it were frightened by it. . . Car seemed to have a mind of its own.

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.

When slowing down or coming to a stop, the vehicle's engine will turn off and power steering will not work. In order to start the vehicle again, I need to completely stop, put it in park and start the engine. This has happened on the street and freeway. It does not happen constantly. I have had times where it happens 2 days in a row, once a week, and once a month. I have taken the vehicle to a dealer a few times already, but they have not been able figure out what the issue is. After having the vehicle at the dealer for over 1 month, I spoke to a senior technician that works at the dealer and he said it is a known issue. He told me that vehicles with the 5. 7l engine and the push to start button have been having this issue and the issue starts around 30,000 to 50,000 miles and they are not sure what is causing the problem or how to fix it.
