Failure Date: 08/02/2016

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-.

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.

The shifter problems have been well documented but I read about the proposed solution and from my experience that will only fix part of the problem. Unless the driver is paying close attention the vehicle may not be in park. But it is also very easy to shift from park to neutral. The near miss I had was leaving a parking lot that had an incline to a very bust street. I thought I was idling to the ease of the street but I was actually in neutral. When I let off the brake to pull onto the street the car rolled into oncoming traffic but obviously did not excellerate when I hit the throttle. Scrambling to get the car in gear it took a few prescious seconds to realize you have to push on the brake in order for the transmission to shift. Too much to think about in those circumstances. The shifter is going to get others killed unless a complete new system is installed. This car has many great safety features but in many cases there just isn't enough time to react. I'm a 40 year experienced licensed driver with class a cdl. A driver should not have to concentrate on the shifter. It should be a natural motion. This is a ticking time bomb that must be repaired or it will cause more accidents and deaths. Please keep in mind that an alarm that tells the driver the car is or is not in park will only fix part of the problem. I routinely find myself in the wrong gear. Jeep is trying to find a cheap way out that is just not going to work.

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.
