2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Recalls
The engine may stall without warning due to a faulty fuel pump relay. Dealers will modify and replace the fuel pump relay free of charge to correct the problem.
The alternator can fail, causing loss of electrical power and possible engine stalling. Dealers will repair the vehicle free of charge (the repair procedure is not available as of the time of this writing).
The wiring for the vanity lamp in the vehicle sun visor may develop a short, causing a risk of fire. Dealers will inspect and repair any damaged wiring, as well as install a new sun visor that properly routes the wire free of charge to resolve the problem.
The power brake booster in these vehicles uses vacuum developed by the engine to provide power assistance to the braking system. Certain vehicles are being recalled because the shell of the vacuum brake booster can corrode and allow water to get inside. The water inside could freeze and limit ability of the brake booster to provide brake assistance. This reduced braking ability can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will test the brake booster and replace those that fail, and all vehicles will have a diverter shield installed on the brake booster to prevent this from occurring in the future.
Certain vehicles equipped with the Ready Alert Braking (RAB) System are being recalled because the brake pedal may feel harder that normal when the driver applies the brakes. As a result, the driver may not press the brake pedal as hard as necessary to achieve a normal distance. An increased stopping distance increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the ABS control module software to correct this concern.
667 vehicles equipped with a 3.6L engine are being recalled because a connecting rod bearing can fail due to debris inside the engine block. Connecting rod failure may lead to engine seizure, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the engine to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is L33.
