Jeep Grand Cherokee Check Engine Light Due to Failed Thermostat

(15 reports)

The thermostat may fail to close completely, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This problem will prevent the engine from reaching normal operating temperature; a new thermostat should be installed.

Changed thermostat 3 times already due to first overheating. Second time the engine does not warm up to right temperature causing check engine to come on. Thermostat replaced 2nd time and engine still did not operate right causing check engine lamp to come on again. Replaced thermostat again and now waiting to see if it will operate correctly this time. This problem began at 68,000 miles. My jeep only has 72,000 now. -
Replaced 2011 jeep grand cherokee laredo 3.6 engine with a new thermostat and now wondering how many miles to drive to get the 'check engine light off?" Its time to get inspection and it still won't pass until I drive so many miles. Does anyone know how many miles to drive before I can go back and see if it will pass? No auto zone, advance auto nor Napa had the part in their computer and I had to go and purchase it at the dealer...$36.00. My husband put it in---in less than 30 min. -
