2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Problems

The power window motor commonly fails in the front and rear doors. This may require replacement of the complete window regulator assembly which will include the window motor.

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.

Due to warped front brake rotors or variations in the thickness of the rotors, brake pulsations may develop. The best method to reduce pulsations is to use an "On the Car" brake lathe (as long as the rotors are suitable for turning). "On the Car" equipment can correct variations (or "runout") in the rotor surfaces because it also corrects variations in other components (e.g. the hub).

Dealers will install a supplemental wire harness to the airbag control module to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is M35.

OMG!!! This vehicle is a piece of crap. nothing but problems since being purchased. will never ever buy jeep again.

Good solid vehicle.

I have a 2003 Gran erokee Jeep @ 143,000 miles. I took my car into the shop and they think it needs an ignition coul or a computer. The car is running rough. It starts but when it gets warm it cuts off. If changed from park to reverse it will cut off.
