Jeep Grand Cherokee Problems

Water Leak and Sloshing Due to Clogged Evaporator Drain

The AC evaporator drain commonly clogs and causes water to leak onto the passenger side floor. A sloshing noise may also be heard from the water inside the heater housing. Decaying organic debris in the housing may cause an odor. A service bulletin (TSB 24-06-96) was released; it describes how to clean the drain tube without removing the heater AC housing.

AC Blower May Only Work on High or Melt Connector at Blower

Failure in the blower motor power module (automatic temperature controls) or resistor block (manual AC) may cause the heater blower motor to work only on the high setting. The connector to the power module/resistor block is known to overheat (and sometimes melt). The connector or terminals should be replaced; a replacement connector is available.

Temperature Blend/Recirculation Doors May Fail and Cause AC Problems

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.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Recalls

Vehicle Does Not Notify When Not In Park With The Door Open

The vehicle may not notify the occupants that the vehicle is not shifted to the park position when a door is opened, resulting in an occupant not knowing that the vehicle is not secured in park, the vehicle possibly rolling away and risking injury. Dealers will update the vehicle software to mitigate the risk of vehicle roll-away free of charge to resolve the concern.

Brake Caliper Cracks And Reduces Braking Ability

The left front brake caliper could crack because the materials used in manufacturing it were incorrect. Dealers will inspect and replace affected left front brake calipers depending on the casting date listed on them free of charge to resolve the concern.

Vanity Lamp Wiring Issue Can Cause Fire Hazard

The wiring for the sun visor vanity mirror may short and cause a vehicle fire. Dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge and will resolve the concern.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Reviews

May be I am one of the unlucky Jeep Grand Cherokee 1998 Special Edition owners who has spend about 4000 bucks just this year hoping that it would last longer. I bought the Jeep from a friend with 122K miles on it. It has 135k today. I had several problems: -Transfer case -Radiator -Brake Pads -Heater core -Muffler -Oil seal -Filter Pan -Battery issues If you look under the car...
Love this Jeep. Except A/C shuts down when car is not moving. Starter went out got that fixed now bright lights are not working any explanation? 2009 Grand Cherokee with 170,000 miles.
Had a lot of 4x4 cars and this is the best handling SUV on Mt. roads I have seen. I have the Orvis model with heavy duty suspension.Engine is extremely good off the line and pulls really heavy trailers. Mileage now is 173k and shows no sign of letting up. It's the magnum v8 and the mpg is not the best but you pay to have fun.
