Jeep Grand Cherokee owners have reported 248 problems related to ignition switch (under the electrical system category).
While driving, the ignition switch goes into accessory and the engine shuts off. . Jeep has no power steering or power to control the vehicle. This scared the "h" out of my wife yesterday while driving in traffic across a bridge going to work. She was traveling aprox. 45 mph across a straight bridge. This same thing happened to mysely last year while on the PA turnpike in traffic. I put the flashers on and shifted into neutral and restarted the Jeep without much serious problems. But now a second time !!! I don't want anybody to get hurt because of this.

At times, the ignition switch turns off unexpectedly while driving. Also, when starting, the ignition switch will, at times, turn off, resulting in a failure to remain running.
I made an appointment at paulding Chrysler Jeep Dodge in dallas, GA on 5-17-16. This appointment was scheduled one week prior to 5-17-16 to replace the ignition switch (p41) and to update a computer system (p73). I was told that the ignition switch was in stock. I brought my vehicle in for the repair at 0830 on 5-17-16. I received a phone call @ 1300 from one of the service managers (nate) telling me that the part was not in stock to replace the ignition switch and I would have to bring it back in when the part was available. When I picked up my vehicle that afternoon I was told that the dealership would contact me and reschedule an appointment for the replacement of the ignition switch. Since then, I have not heard anything from the dealership and my vehicle has lost power 3 times after I picked up my vehicle. I was backing out of my driveway when the vehicle lost power the first time and twice sitting at a red light. I need this resolved right away. I am a home health rn and I drive all day seeing patients.

For over a year now, I have been receiving notices about a Jeep safety recall and I have called several different states seeking the ignition switch and no one has it. I have recently experiences two separate driving occasions where I've completely lost engine power and power steering assist; it's really scaring me and I don't feel safe in the vehicle, especially with two small children in tow as this is my family car.
Exterior headlights and interior dash lights flicker on and off speratically. This happens while driving, stopped and even when parked. I have to toggle the light switch on and off to try and stop the flicker or even to get the lights to come back on because sometimes the lights stay off even when the switch is in the on position. This is extremely scary when driving at night and I'm sure it irritates the heck out of anyone who see's my lights flickering. They think I'm signaling them for some reason. Really need a fix for this ASAP. Hope daimler/chrsler isn't waiting for death/accident toll before they fix this issue. I have already had the ignition switch replaced per the recent recall and the problem with the lights persists.
Problems with vehicle starting some days--other days won't start. No one can find the problem. Just completed the recall of the ignition switch but still have start problems.
