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.
A Check Engine Light may illuminate indicating a "Cylinder #3 Misfire." This normally occurs in hot weather after the vehicle has been driven, parked for ten to twenty minutes, and then restarted. Heat from the exhaust vaporizes fuel inside the #3 fuel injector and causes the misfire. Installing an insulator sleeve normally lowers the temperature enough so the fuel will not vaporize.
Electrical contacts in the tail lamp housing tend to break or melt, which can cause the brake lights to fail or work intermittently. Complete inspection of the tail light housing and bulbs is recommended before replacing any parts.

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.
