This problem has happened quite a few times where the vehicle is parked we press the button to start the vehicle,it wont start. We have to take the button out start the vehicle with they key but on 3/18/18 the radio was on once we parked the car once the vehicle was started it took about 2 minutes for the radio to come on . It was also saying that the key battery was low funny thing is I just replaced the battery in the fob on 3/16/18. This is an intermittent problem I think Jeep needs to take care of. From what I was reading it is the totally integrated control module(the computer) which can be very costly and apparently that part is on backorder. So there are quite a few Jeep owners with this same problem. I have read that the vehicle can completely shut down at any speed and you lose power steering and brakes which is a huge safety problem.

Tl the contact owns a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While driving 70 mph, the tachometer, rpm, speedometer, water temperature, tire pressure, electronic stability control, gear shifter, seat belt, and anti-skid warning indicators illuminated. Also, the windshield wipers independently activated. While accelerating from a stop, the gear shifter failed to shift out of gear. The vehicle was towed to rairdon's Chrysler Dodge Jeep ram of kirkland (12828 ne 124th st, kirkland, wa 98034), but was not diagnosed or repaired. The VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign number: 13v483000 (service brakes, hydraulic, electrical system, electronic stability control).

When driving the vehicle, a "service shifter" error is shown on the digital information screen on the dashboard, behind the steering wheel. When the error is thrown, other (most all) lights on the dashboard (mil and others like traction control, emergency brake, et cetera) are illuminated and there is a chime sound. The lights that illuminate the shifter will pulsate. When this occurs, sometimes it feels like the vehicle has a loss of power. The vehicle must be restarted before it resumes normal operation. This has occurred repeatedly, even after being serviced by a Chrysler dealership for this issue. The has occurred during while driving at all speeds, while going straight and turning. The first occurrence was in November 2017, and most recently March 2018.
I was driving down an off ramp towards a right turn at about 20-30 mph . I attempted to make the right turn and brake pedal was very hard , gas pedal wasn�t responding and steering wheel locked up(no turning) . The Jeep slowed and nearly hit parked cars since brakes and steering were not working . When Jeep finally stopped , I shifted into park and pushed ignition off button . I waited a few moments then pushed start button and it started up with no check engine light or service message . I believe altinator or tipm failed while I was driving . I don�t believe my vehicle qualified for t37 altinator recall or tipm recall that was issued . I don�t wanna put my 2 year old son in this Jeep anymore , he deserves better than that . 2012 Grand Cherokee 5. 7 altitude with only 28000 miles . I don�t feel safe driving this Jeep anymore until issue is resolved .

Takata recall (possibly). The Jeep was traveling down the highway and the airbag light came on for about 30 seconds and the side curtain airbag deployed for no reason. An ember came out of it and fell on the carpet in the back and burned a hole all the way down to the metal, now my cluster panel is going nuts and all of my electrical is malfunctioning. There is no damage to the outside of my Jeep to cause the airbag to deploy.

When parked, I tried to lock car using key fob, which armed the alarm but did not lock the doors. I tried using master power lock on driver side door to lock it, but this didn't work either (none of the doors will lock). Separately, after leaving this parked spot, I tried using the windshield washers while driving to clean the windshield, but the sprayers did not work. Only the wiper blades activated. After a diagnostic test by repair shop, I'm told the totally integrated power module needs to be replaced.
Car's instrument panel went wild w hen I started the car. Every warning light came on and stayed on. Gauges worked immediately after starting the car, but slowly lost power to keep them on, and they went to the "key off" position. Nothing on the drivers armrest worked, no seat auto positioner, no window open, shut, or lock. Information panel overhead went dead (blank).

Unconnect system in my 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee overland turns off and on by itself ever 60 seconds whether you are driving or stationary. I believe it started this morning or last night. You cannot use bluetooth, the heat or the radio. I called the dealership where I purchased the vehicle less than 1 month ago and they said I was the 6th report today and the vehicles in their lot were doing it as well. They stated that the unconnect system might have been hacked.
Display dash screen shuts off and on appx every 30 seconds, reboots, and overheats, driving or stationary.

The push start button has issues starting the engine. There has been a recall for this and the issue still persists. The only way the dealer will fix the issue is if the problem is seen 1st hand and occurs for longer then 8 seconds. I have paid for multiple rental cars and spent multiple hours at the dealer to have this issue fixed and it keeps recurring. Something needs to be done to fix it without re-occurrence. My final point is that yesterday when dealing with this issue my car started after its second try, I then drove onto the street and the engine shut off and the brakes locked up. Luckily there was not any cross traffic because it could have caused a serious accident on a busy street with my daughter and myself in the car. This hse risk has caused me to be very concerned about the drivability of my vehicle and something needs to be done ASAP!.
Tl the contact owns a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While driving unknown speeds, the rpms and all the electrical components went haywire. The contact drove the vehicle home. The dealer (neuwirth motors, 219 s college rd, wilmington, nc 28403) diagnosed that the tipm was never repaired on the vehicle. The manufacturer informed the contact that the manufacturer warranty expired and suggested that the contact use the extended warranty. The contact took the vehicle to a different dealer (victory Chrysler Dodge, 45 naber drive, shallotte, nc 28470) where it was diagnosed that the tipm was faulty and would cost $1,200 to repair. The vehicle was still at the dealer being repaired. The failure mileage was 132,050. Parts distribution disconnect.
Tl the contact owns a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The contact stated that the vehicle was slow to pick up speed when the accelerator pedal was depressed. Also, the vehicle was difficult to start.

The vehicle was taken to the dealer (michiana Chrysler Dodge Jeep ram fiat, 120 w mckinley Ave, mishawaka, in 46545, (574) 254-2010) where it was diagnosed that the abs module prematurely melted and needed to be replaced. The dealer was unable to verify the cause of the failure and indicated that further diagnostic testing was required.

Purchased used 2012 Grand Cherokee overland w/94637 miles on January 27 2018. On January 31 at 8:50am after driving two miles I came to a stop at a stop light and while waiting for light change the engine died. No warning lights - the only indication was rpm dropped to zero. Put vehicle into park and restarted without a problem. Continued driving for the remainder of 32 mile trip. Again on February 2 2018 the same thing occurred while my wife was driving. She came to a full stop and while waiting for signal light to change the vehicle engine quit with no warning lights. On both occasions this was the first trip of the day in the early morning ambient temperature of 55 degrees on dry pavement on city streets. Both times the vehicle was restarted without a prolem and the trip continued without interruption. Vehicle is scheduled at folsom lake Jeep dealer for investigation.
While decelerating and turning the vehicle will stall and you lose power steering and power brakes. This has occurred 11 times in the past couple years and 3 times in the past month. This has occurred several times while exiting the highway and has caused me to almost crash or have someone drive into the rear of my vehicle. The event leaves no engine codes and the dealer says they can't duplicate. I put the vehicle in neutral and it will start again. This is a huge safety issue for both myself and other motoring public.

Vehicle engine shuts off randomly while driving. This problem has happened multiple times. The engine is not running so there is no power steering or power brakes putting my wife, child, and others around them in danger when this happens. There are numerous and numerous amounts of complaints about this issue all over the web. Chrysler has a recall fix for this issue but their fix is not working, as we have had this "fix" done twice, still having the stalling while driving issue. There are 188,000 other vehicles affected by this. These vehicles are a danger to everyone on the road.
I had reached into the storage and outlet trey in the center counsel while going down the highway. My jacket sleeve apparently hit the gear shift and bumped it into neutral. When I realize what was happening I had to apply the brake and push the button on the gear shifter to return it to drive. I reach in this storage tray many time a day and have had this happen before, just not going 70 mph on a highway. If this stick is highly programmable, why can it not be programed to require me to push the gear shift button to change from drive to neutral?? this is dangerous and distracting when driving. Their is not much room for your arm to reach over the shifter to retrieve items in the trey.
Chrysler is not providing the parts in a timely manner to my local dealership for recall 15v-879.
