2009 Jeep Commander Problems

Service 4WD System Warning Light On

The service 4WD system light may illuminate with no fault codes stored in the final drive control module (FDCM). Our technicians tell us a software update for the FDCM is available to correct this concern.

Water Leak From Sunroof Drain Tube

A water leak from the sunroof and/or headliner is often caused by clogged or misrouted sunroof drain tubes. Inspecting the sunroof drain tubes should be the first step in checking for the cause of these type of water leaks.

Interior door handles break off of door panel

Owners have reported several instances of the interior door handles coming loose or breaking. The factory door handles are part of the entire door panel, so an OEM or factory repair would require replacement of the door panel at considerable cost. There are multiple aftermarket solutions involving removing the door panel to repair the original assembly, or retrofitting an aftermarket interior handle to address the issue.

2009 Jeep Commander Recalls

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.

The Driver's Air Bag May Not Deploy

Wiring may be reversed on the steering column control module driver's air bag connector and cause the driver air bag not to deploy. If the driver's air bag does not inflate when needed, the risk of injuries to the driver is increased. Dealers will inspect the driver's air bag squib wires and replace the steering column control module. The recall began in May, 2009. The recall number is J13.

I LOVE my Commander! Horrible gas mileage, 15 mpg, and at $4/gal it sucks! But I hate to get rid of it because I enjoy driving it!
