2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee ProblemsTemperature Blend/Recirculation Doors May Fail and Cause AC Problems
Temperature blend and recirculation doors commonly fail, which can cause the AC modes not to change or the temperature to be different on the left and right sides. If replacing blend air doors, a recirculation door, a door link, or a sub-assembly housing, new heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) sub-assemblies are available that improve reliability.
The AC/heater (HVAC) system may unexpectedly switch to the defrost mode when accelerating. This system is operated by engine vacuum and should be inspected for any vacuum leaks if this problem develops. There is also a revised vacuum check valve available to address this concern.
Failure in the blower motor power module (automatic temperature controls) or resistor block (manual AC) may cause the heater blower motor to work only on the high setting. The connector to the power module/resistor block is known to overheat (and sometimes melt). The connector or terminals should be replaced; a replacement connector is available.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee RecallsChrysler Recalls 2000 and 2002 Grand Cherokees Due to Cooling Fan Problem
Chrysler has recalled 2000 and 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokees because the plastic blades of the electric motor driven cooling fan may separate and penetrate the shroud. If this occurs while the hood is open, a person in the vicinity may be struck by the blade and possibly injured. Dealers will replace the electric cooling fan modules free of charge.
The design of the intake and exhaust manifolds allow for debris collection in the area of the number three cylinder. This may cause a fire hazard. Dealers will install a manifold shield to modify air flow characteristics to prevent debris accumulation.
Chrysler has recalled 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokees because some of these vehicles may have been built with suspect vent tube welds in the fuel tank. If the vent tube weld separates, it can result in a fuel leak, which in the presence of an ignition source, may result in a fire. Dealers will replace fuel tanks on affected vehicles.
