Light comes on and dealer said there was a glitch in computer and felt it was okay to drive car around since it only comes on every now and then. Do you have any ideas as to the cause and is this a common problem with this year Jeep?

If you can post the code that is being stored n the computer we can give you a better answer. Without it it's too hard to give advice.
I had this happen as well. The dealer was reluctant at first to do anything because they could not diagnose the reason with 100% certainty and if they get it wrong the dealer pays, not the manufacturer. So we went in and out of the shop for a good two months, at which point I flatly demanded that a new computer be installed. We have not had this problem occur since the new computer was installed.
I had the same problem with my 06 with 65k miles. The light would come on intermittenly and would turn off automatically or after a restart. Took it to the dealer 2 times where it remained the first time for a few days and the second time for 4 weeks. They could not get it to replicate this and told me everything appeared to be operating normally and gave me the runaround that it may be the solenoid pack(replaced less than 1 year prior at the same dealership)or the computer or some bypass valve. I called jeep corporate to inform them of the issue with the dealership and vehicle and they were of no help. so I pulled it out of service. Overall, I was very dissatisfied with the dealer for not even offering a refund for the diagnostic fee which they could not dianose and for jeep corporate with there lack of assitance. Really makes me hesitant to own another jeep product as i have been a loyal owner since driving nothing but jeeps for 11 years. Thanks jeep. your awesome and really know to keep your customers coming back. Not!
I own a 2006 Jeep Commander with about 65,000 miles. Yesterday, for a brief second, it showed "transmission over temperature". Will bring it to the dealership tomorrow and
hopefully it's nothing major.
