1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Recalls
It has been determined the fuel tank in these vehicles is at risk of leakage during a rear end collision. To correct this concern dealers will inspect the rear of the vehicle and perform one of the following: A Chrysler designed tow hitch will be installed on vehicles not equipped with a tow hitch, provided the condition of the vehicles can support support proper installation. The tow hitch on vehicles already equipped will be inspected and replaced and/or repaired as necessary, again provided the vehicle is sound and can support proper instillation.
Chrysler has recalled 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokees because if a driver has not placed the shifter lever fully into the "Park" position and leaves the vehicle running, the vehicle may unexpectedly move rearward.

Chrysler has recalled 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokees because the molded plastic pin that connects the upper steering column shaft and the lower column shaft may have been sheared prior to installation of the steering column assembly. If this occurred, the upper steering shaft will separate from the lower steering shaft. If the shafts separate, the driver will experience a complete loss of steering control. A restraining sleeve will be added to the intermediate shaft to limit the amount of steering shaft movement available.
Chrysler has recalled 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokees because the center rear seat belt buckle may not be accessible when the right (passenger) side of the rear seat back is folded down in the cargo stowage position. In the event of a crash, the occupant of the center rear seat may not be properly restrained, which can increase the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the seat belt buckle assembly.
Chrysler has recalled 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokees because when the grease was applied to the liftgate latch rubber bumpers to ease component assembly, it caused the bumper to swell. This may prevent the liftgate from latching when closed and make it difficult to open when latched. If the liftgate opens when the car is in motion, an occupant could fall out. Dealers will replace the liftgate assembly on affected vehicles.
Chrysler has recalled 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokees because the eccentric cam adjuster bolts in both front lower suspension arm-to-front axle bracket attachments may fail due to assembly misalignment. Cam bolt failures cause the vehicle to pull to one side when the brakes are applied, which may result in loss of vehicle control and a crash. Chrysler will install newly designed front suspension cam bolts, cam washers, and nuts.
Chrysler has recalled 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokees because the retainer clip that secures the master cylinder input rod to the brake pedal was not installed properly and may become loose. Disengagement of the retainer clip will allow free play in the attachment, which can cause the input rod to separate from the brake pedal. This may result in a complete loss of brake application, increasing the risk of an accident. The retainer clips will be removed and new ones installed.
