Jeep Grand Cherokee Recalls & Reliability

Recalls

There have been 2 safety recalls issued from NHTSA.

SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:CONTROL UNIT/MODULERecall Date: 10/16/2013
  • Summary: Chrysler Group, LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured January 8, 2013, through August 20, 2013. Due to a disruption of computer communications and loose alternator ground wires, the affected vehicles may experience random illumination of multiple instrument cluster warning lights, loss of cluster illumination and loss of anti-lock brake system (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) function. Because of these conditions, the vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 101, "Controls and Displays," and No. 126, "Electronic Stability Control Systems."
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 90981
  • Consequence: A loss of ABS and ESC function reduces the driver's ability to control the vehicle. Drivers would not be warned of brake system failures or any other failures which would be illuminated on the dashboard display. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
  • Remedy: Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will update the ABS and instrument cluster module software and tighten the alternator ground wire, free of charge. The recall began on November 19, 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N58.
  • Dates of Manufacture JAN 07, 2013 to AUG 19, 2013

Without properly functioning parking lamps these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, "Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment."
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 4242
  • Consequence: Without parking lamps, the vehicle may not be as visible to other vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash.
