2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Problems

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

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.

Brakes -- Verified

Due to warped front brake rotors or variations in the thickness of the rotors, brake pulsations may develop. The best method to reduce pulsations is to use an "On the Car" brake lathe (as long as the rotors are suitable for turning). "On the Car" equipment can correct variations (or "runout") in the rotor surfaces because it also corrects variations in other components (e.g. the hub).

Drive Train -- Verified

If the transmission delays initial gear engagement after being parked overnight or longer, it may be due to a suspect transmission cooler return filter. If the transmission was recently serviced and the part number for the cooler return filter contains an "AB" suffix at the end, a new filter should be installed.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Software updates are available to solve various Check Engine Light and warning light related issues.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

A no crank or no start condition may develop due to electronic lockup of the wireless control module (WCM), also referred to as the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM). When this module fails the remote keyless entry system will also not operate. The WCM is commonly replaced to correct this concern.

Drive Train, May 7, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Reviews

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.
