Jeep Grand Cherokee owners have reported 3,134 problems related to electrical system (under the electrical system category).
Dash and radio shut off while driving on the freeway.
Vehicle will unexpectedly stall during decelleration and braking. Vehicle loses all power to the motor and power steering, making it difficult to avoid collision and steer vehicle to safety. This happens at high and low speeds, and has occurred on 3 separate occasions in a 2 week time period. This issue was supposed to be addressed by recall number p54; of which I completed on this vehicle in 2014. This issue persists, and I am seeing other owners complain of this identical problem on various forums. Jeep/Chrysler seems to be inconsistent on the coverage of repairs and diagnosis. This is a real safety concern that should be addressed universally.

Fcw light on dash went on and all power went off, causing a total loss of steering and control on the freeway. This could easily result in a fatal collision.
Recall t36 from June 09, 2017 still not repairable due to lack of parts. It is now November. I cannot believe such a hazardous issue can be allowed to be unresolved for this long. . Read more...

My vehicle, periodically, would struggle to start, and got worse over time. However, on Nov. 8th it never started, even after repeated attempts. After investigation I discovered that the totally integrated power module (tipm) had a built in fuel pump relay that many other owners complained had failed. So like them I tested the tipm and did discover that the relay had failed, luckily in the open position. I called my local dealership and asked about the 14v-530 recall to add an external relay to fix this issue but I did not find the relay, even though they confirmed it had been completed. This was, luckily, for me only an inconvenient issue, but had it failed while driving the stalled engine could have resulted in damage to my vehicle and/or others and the persons within.

On 10/21/19 my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited mount functioned. While trying to slowly back up my car in a garage the vehicle seized all dashboard lights went out including back up camera screen. Only one light appeared before impact with a pole which was the service transmission light. My foot was off the gas when it jolted backwards into a large pole. This has happened multiple times where the car would seize or accelerate into first gear. It has done this when my foot wasn�t on the gas peddle aswell. I contacted safford Jeep in springfield va three times about my concern. Nothing was corrected now I have been in an accident with very bad vehicle body damage. Chrysler has done nothing and will not give me any answers on the satus of their investagation. This has now cost me out of pocket because they want to draw this out as long as possible.

Driver seatbelt does not retract to tighten on driver while driving or stationary. Serious safety issue! additionally, none of the controls on the right side of the steering wheel work ever; cruise control, park assist, lane departure warning, etc.
My 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls without warning for months now. Now it is starting to hard start or not start at all and continues to stall when I am driving. I have been to the dealership 10+ times and they have found "nothing wrong" but have attempted to fix other problems that I have had to pay for that have still not fixed the problem. It has not been able to be recreated even though they have kept it for a week multiple times and put hundreds of additional miles on it. This is a serious accident and health issue when I am driving on the street or highway from 25/35+ mph and all of a sudden it just stalls and there is not power stearing or control at all. It also "jerks" sometimes when I push on the gas when accelerating. There has been a recall regarding some 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokees but they say not mine. If I have continuously have this issue, why is mine not recalled as well??? I do understand that vehicle recalls are VIN specific although the manufacturer could have placed a defect part into mine also. I have asked for a monitor to be placed on my vehicle to "get the codes if possible when it stalls" but have been told "no" 2+ times from the dealer. I do not have another vehicle to use when ever I need and have had to wait up to 2 weeks to get it to the dealer due to dealer rental availability.
The tipm failed on the vehicle while driving down the road bringing the vehicle to a sudden stop. All functions in the car were halted. This resulted in stranding my teenage daughter in the middle of a busy road in a very dangerous situation. After being towed to the dealership they informed me that it would cost me $1349. 36 to replace the faulty tipm. Numerous research into this problem reveals many similar problems with the tipm from Jeep which could likely to result in serious safety related problems not to mention very costly repairs. This problem should be addressed further.

The contact owns a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While driving 30 mph, the engine stalled and all the warning indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was towed to south county Dodge ram Chrysler Jeep ram (7127 s. Lindbergh blvd, st. Louis, mo 63125) where it was diagnosed that the electro hyudraulic steering failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was currently at the dealer waiting to be repaired. The vehicle was previously repaired per NHTSA campaign number: 14v634000 (electrical system). The manufacturer was notified of the failure and referred the contact to NHTSA.

I have received a safety recall notice for my vehicle which explains that there is a defective part that would impose a hazard to myself and other occupants safety and that it is extremely important to take steps to repair my vehicle, however the manufacturer has no current remedy since there are no parts available and cannot provide me with a specific date for when the parts will become available. I do not feel safe driving the vehicle and feel that the manufacturer should provide a safe vehicle replacement untill they are able to replace the defective part(s).
Battery light came on while traveling on I-10 in el paso TX. Exited on sunland park dr where vehicle stalled while in motion.
