2008 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.

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Recalls

Ignition Key May Stick Between Positions in Ignition Key Cylinder

The ignition key may stick between desired positions in the ignition key cylinder mechanism, and may move between positions while driving. This can cause the engine to shut off and electrical accessories to stop operating. Dealers will repair this concern free of charge (a repair procedure is still under development as of the time of this writing).

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.

Windshield Wipers May Fail or Engine May Stall

The front control module may have been manufactured incorrectly. As a result, the windshield wipers could fail or the engine could stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the front control module and replace it as necessary. The recall is expected to begin on February 18, 2008. The Chrysler recall number is H03.

I'm a Jeep Girl. Not just because their appearance and function appeal to both my sporty and mommy lifestyle but because I have no problems with them. I have 2 active kids that push and shove and eat and carry on like demons in the car and as long as we clean up our spills, our Jeeps stay looking great and doing their job.
