It is unknown at this time what is causing all these lights to come on when the car is turned on and idling. Looked on the internet quite a few other people had experienced the same problem some still couldn't figure out what it was when they took it to the auto mechanic shops. Was wondering if this was part of a recall. This could cause an accident when you lose power and you're driving down the street. This started happening a couple of days ago.

My power door locks stopped working. I made an appointment to have it repaired and the day I was going to drive my jgc to the dealer, all hell broke loose. Park assist stopped working, anti skid and 4 wheel drive also indicated errors. But worse, I could not move the shifting arm out of park. I had to have it dragged out of my garage by a local towing service. The dealer said it was a faulty tipm and had to be replaced. Once it is replaced, they can check on the power door lock issue. I've read the this is a pretty common problem for the 2012 jgc. In fact, it must be because the dealer said that he probably wouldn't be able to get a replacement part for at least a month. If this had happened on a recent trip to nyc, my family would have been stuck god knows where.

I was backing into my driveway (Jeep was in motion) and had the radio on. I was coming home from work and the commute took 30 minutes. While backing in, I heard a popping noise (similar to the noise a pop-it firework makes when it hits the ground) inside the cabin. I turned the radio off and stopped the Jeep to listen to the popping. The popping stopped and I immediately smelled smoke. I then saw the smoke was coming from the right side of the center console near the heat/air controls. I threw the Jeep in park, removed the keys from the ignition, and exited the vehicle. After 5 minutes, I opened the driver side door and smoke poured out. It smelled burnt but I did not see any flames (I could have missed them in the 5 minutes I was standing outside my vehicle). I turned the Jeep back on in order to get it into my garage for further investigation. Upon returning the vehicle to my garage, the headlights and interior lights both turned on. I have an appointment at the Jeep dealer tomorrow to investigate further. I have no aftermarket parts on the vehicle though have not yet gotten the visor recall fixed. Please provide insight if possible. Very concerned. This poses an enormous safety risk.

Failure Date: 11/30/2016

I reported this problem a month or so ago about the front driver's seat breaking and breaking off the vehicle frame. Plus the a/c issue under the glove compartment overheats and melts the mechanism and continues to burn. When I reported the issue, no wreck was involved. Since reporting the problem, the vehicle was involved in an accident and totaled. My fix apparently allowed the seat to stay on the frame but the seat still broke. Fortunately, no serious injury, only sore neck and bump to the hand.

Our 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been stalling while driving. In the last 2 months it has shut off at least 1-2 times a week, for about a total of 8 times. Fuel pump relay was fixed in 2014 but we think this is the problem again. Other electrical issues like keys not recognized are also happening but the car shutting off in the middle of an intersection is alarming. This has happened at least 3 times. The car has always stalled in the morning as my husband makes his way to work. My husband reports it happens often as he is trying to turn and driving on a street. He is currently risking his life driving this car to work.

I had schedule an appointment with dewey Dodge, ram, Chrysler, Jeep in ankeny IA on 09/29/16 to address the visor recall. At that time I was told they are lost part of the kit needed for the repair. I scheduled another appointment on 11/11/6 and was told they were still waiting for Chrysler to send what they needed. A month and a half seems an unreasonably long time, especially when compared to how little time it takes when the dealer has to order parts to address a maintenance issue.
