2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Problems

Temperature 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.

Power Window Motor May Fail

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.

Problems With Brake Lights Due to Damaged Electrical Contacts

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.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Questions

Not sure. (1 answer)

My '04 Jeep Grand Cherokee Wagoneer has 104K miles and I seldom drive since I've retired (3-5000 miles per yr). When weather turns cold, the front end slightly creaks like metal on metal when I hit a pothole or rough patch. Also the steering wheel squeals slightly when turned all the way...

How can I tell if the knocking noise is the piston rods and how much (1 answer)

So every time I press on the accelerating peddle there is a knocking noise that is loud and the car starts to stall and turn off

How do I check the radiator fan clutch and replace it if necessary? (1 answer)

The fan is not coming on as the engine gets hot. I have replaced the thermostat, the radiator cap, flushed the radiator, and both relays are good. What else could be causing the fan to not come on. The fan spins by hand.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Recalls

Air Bags May Deploy Unexpectedly

The air bags and seat belt pretensioners may deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being driven due to electronic interference. Dealers will replace the air bag electronic control module and the front and/or side impact sensors as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Unexpected Airbag Deployment

The airbag control module can fail prematurely due to electrical noise beyond the tolerance it was designed for. As a result the front airbags, side airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners could deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated, increasing the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. Dealers will replace the airbag control module and front and/or side impact sensors as required to correct this concern.

Components of the Airbag System May Deploy Unexpectedly

A component in the air bag control module may fail causing the front airbags, side curtain airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners to deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated. Inadvertent deployment of the airbags may increase the risk of injury and the possibility of a vehicle crash. Dealers will install a supplemental wire harness to the airbag control module to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is M35.

i have had the rotors cut @ 14k, new rotors @ 16k, new pads @ 21k, and now at 22k it looks like rotors either need cut or replaced again. this model seems to eat rotors. i would like to hear from any other owners with the same issue.
I just purchased my 2004 Grand Cherokee. It looked good and drove nicely. Thus far after driving it almost 1,000 miles, it has needed more repairs then the vehicle (Dakota P/U) I traded in the 8 years I owned it. It also only get 18 MPG, bad for a 4.0 6 cyl motor. Dissapointed
Chrysler not very friendly, broken frame on left side.
