2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Problems

Exhaust leak from 4.7L V8 due to broken exhaust manifold bolts

A ticking noise may be noted when vehicle is cold due to an exhaust leak caused by broken exhaust manifold bolts. Replacement of these bolts and associated gaskets is necessary to fix the condition.

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.

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.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Recalls

The Engine May Turn Off Unexpectedly

While operating the vehicle the driver may hit the ignition key with their knee, accidentally moving the key out of the run position. If this were to occur the engine would turn off, affecting various safety systems and increasing the risk of a crash and/or personal injury. As of this writing, the remedy for this recall is still under development.

The 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.

Chrysler Recalls 2005 Grand Cherokees Due to Possible Under-Hood Fire Hazard

Chrysler is recalling 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokees because the air conditioner evaporator condensate water may enter the transmission at the fill tube grommet seal. This can result in a shudder during torque converter clutch engagement, which can lead to increased transmission operating temperatures, boiling of the water, and a subsequent purging of transmission fluid into the engine compartment. This may cause a fire under the hood. Dealers will inspect all components and repair/replace as necessary.

I had all the gears replaced at a cost of $2000 and in less than a year I ...
How involved is replacing/fixing the belt tensoner. Also there is a noise when I turn left and it feels like the power steering is gone but when I'm done with the turn it's fine.
2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. I have a couple of issues with mine and can't seem to find anyone that knows what the problem is. First, when you hit any sort of bump at all the whole front end rattles like I'm fixing to lose about half of whats under there. Had the motor mounts replaced, didn't help. Second, when turning the wheel, something is grabbing and making an awful noise like the tra...
