2008 Jeep Commander Problems

Hard Drive for MYGIG Radio May Become Corrupt

The hard drive for the MYGIG radio may become corrupt. Symptoms would include: The radio does not go past the "Navigation is being activated" screen, music on the hard drive cannot be accessed, capacity of the hard drive shows 0. If all three of these symptoms are present the MYGIG radio software will require updating.

Spark Knock, Noise/Vibration/Harshness, and/or Check Engine Light Issues

Spark knock, noise/vibration/harshness, and/or Check Engine Light issues may develop. Our technicians tell us powertrain control module (PCM) software upgrades may correct these concerns.

Delayed Transmission Engagement

Delayed engagement of the automatic transmission may be due to a faulty internal cooler return filter. Our technicians tell us all cooler filters with the "AB" suffix on the part number are suspect and should be replaced.

2008 Jeep Commander Recalls

Ignition Key May Stick Between Positions in Ignition Key Cylinder

The ignition key may stick between desired positions in the ignition key cylinder mechanism, and may move between positions while driving. This can cause the engine to shut off and electrical accessories to stop operating. Dealers will repair this concern free of charge (a repair procedure is still under development as of the time of this writing).

The Transfer Case may Shift into Neutral Unexpectedly

The 4-wheel drive transfer case can direct engine power to the rear wheels only, all four wheels, or in its neutral position, non at all. These vehicles are being recalled because the transfer case can shift into its neutral position without warning. If this were to occur, engine power would not reach any of the drive wheels and the vehicle could not move under its own power. Dealers will reprogram the final drive controller which governs the transfer case to correct this concern.

Windshield Wipers May Fail or Engine May Stall

The front control module may have been manufactured incorrectly. As a result, the windshield wipers could fail or the engine could stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the front control module and replace it as necessary. The recall is expected to begin on February 18, 2008. The Chrysler recall number is H03.
