2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The remote keyless entry system may not function intermittently. Our technicians tell us revised software for the wireless ignition node is available which can correct this concern.
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.
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).
When normal alignment practices do not bring components into the alignment specifications, offset upper ball joints are available.
If a thumping or creaking noise is heard from the transmission tunnel area while driving over bumpy roads, a transfer case shifter repair kit is available which should correct this concern.
