2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee ProblemsExhaust 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 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.
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 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.
