2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee RecallsThe 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 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 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.
