RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the Jeep as reported by actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.Refine by vehicle
Vehicles with a 3.7L V6 engine may develop a chirp type noise from the serpentine belt when the steering wheel is at full lock with the engine idling. Our technicians tell us a revised serpentine belt tensioner is available to correct this concern.
The hard drive for the MYGIG radio may become corrupt. Symptoms would include: The radio does not go past the "Navigation is being activated" screen, music on the hard drive cannot be accessed, capacity of the hard drive shows 0. If all three of these symptoms are present the MYGIG radio software will require updating.
Jeep issued a recall on the ignition switch because the switch could short-circuit in the presence of water or impurities.
The fuel tank may become hard to fill and/or the fuel fill nozzle may shut off repeatedly while fueling. Our technicians tell us that various items including the fuel tank, vapor recirculation tube, fuel fill tube, or EVAP system canister control valve may be at fault. Proper diagnoses will be required to determine the exact cause of this concern.
Jeep issued an emissions recall in late 2006 to update the powertrain control module (PCM) software on certain 1996 vehicles. As part of the recall, the catalytic converter will also be inspected for damage and replaced as necessary. To see if your vehicle is included in the recall you can visit the Jeep website (owners' section) that allows owners to input their VIN number and check the recalls on their vehicle.
An abnormal noise and/or vibration may be noted from the front brakes during light braking. Our technicians tell us it may be necessary to replace the steering knuckle and hub assembly, along with resurfacing the rotors to correct this concern.

An abnormal noise may develop from the HVAC blower motor as a result of debris ingestion. After any debris is removed, an air baffle screen can be installed on the inlet opening under the cowl grill to try and prevent a re-occurrence of the problem.
A small leak from loose charcoal in the charcoal canister (part of the Evaporative Emissions System) may cause Check Engine Light illumination.
A Check Engine Light may illuminate indicating a "Cylinder #3 Misfire." This normally occurs in hot weather after the vehicle has been driven, parked for ten to twenty minutes, and then restarted. Heat from the exhaust vaporizes fuel inside the #3 fuel injector and causes the misfire. Installing an insulator sleeve normally lowers the temperature enough so the fuel will not vaporize.
