2009 Jeep Commander ProblemsInterior 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.
Vehicles with manual temperature control may develop a condition where warm air is coming from the instrument panel outlets when cold has been selected. Our technicians tell us a revised air distribution housing is available to correct this concern.
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.

2009 Jeep Commander RecallsThe 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.
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.
