jeep  grand cherokee   2012 Casey S. AGOURA HILLS, CA 06/30/13  1.00 I originally purchased a 2011 Grand Cherokee, but after a few months of constant problems with stalling, the dealer replaced it with a 2012 (I had to pay the difference!) I have had the 2012 for almost a year now and it has been nothing but problems. The radiator hosed keeps leaking, it's been replaced several times. The sunroof leaks and has now caused stains on the interior ceiling. The navigation system freezes constantly, I had to drive without a unit from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Most importantly, the engine light turns on constantly, the car stalls constantly, ands then the engine goes into safe mode. Same problem as the Lemon 2011. I am currently in the process of attaining a lawyer to return the car. The dealer refuses to acknowledge that the car has the same problems, and changes the diagnosis codes constantly. They also refuse to look at the car if I arrive at the service center without an engine light on (sometimes the engine light turns off while driving), this way they show the car has only been in the shop 3 times instead of seven! Thanks Chrysler for screwing your loyal customers.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2011 Agatha C. TROY, MI 06/28/11  4.00 Have driven Jeep Grand cherokees for 12 yars, got a 20011 in January and what a pain. Repeated falure on remote entry and start, cannot trust it to work all of the time; dealer has had it 6 weeks, not at root cause yet. Had to call Chrysler Roadside Assistance tnight when it failed and was told they would only tow car to dealer and I was on my own to get home. Unbelievable  
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2011 Chuck B. SAN FRANCISCO, CA  03/14/11  5.00 Super smooth and quiet to drive. Performs extremely well through deep snow and slippery surfaces. The interior finally feels like a quality car, as compared to previous model years. The adaptive cruise control works so well that I'll never buy another car without it.  
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2011 Derek  K. TAMPA, FL 03/13/11  1.00 brothe just bought this car and it overheated with 2k miles. Major engine damage. No warning.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2011 Chris L. WHEAT RIDGE, CO 12/03/10  n/a Locking , unlocking with key fob or touch controls erratic and at times cannot enter car without metal key. Also cannot lock without metal key. Turn on main heat/ac control and windshield heater goes on. Also, Push for interior only vent and AC goes on while heater running. This car is a mess electrically/electronically. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2011 Kelly L. ATLANTA, GA 11/16/10  5.00 I have had my Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland since July now and love driving it everyday. The vehicle handles great and having the V8 I love the power available no matter my current speek. The interior is clean and high in quality. I have noticed there is no where to place keys or other small items in the middle console/shifting area unless placed in the cup holders. I wish there was some raised edge on each side to prevent items from falling off and betweeen the seats. The technology in the car matches the best offered from any of the Foreign luxury class brands and IT ALWAYS WORKS unlike prior Lexus and Audi models I owned. This is a fun versatile vehicle with quality looks and quality finishes.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2007 Eileen F. PORT WASHINGTON, NY  06/16/10  3.00 I have about 40,000 miles on my Jeep. Today the "oil change" cost me $2000. Seems way out of line. Feel like I'm being ripped off. The car sometimes stalls and needs to be knocked back into drive. To correct this cost over $800. I love my Jeep, but am fed up with dealer charges.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2007 Charles A. EARLYSVILLE, VA  02/02/09  2.00 Air conditioning won't work and dealer can't repair.

Windshield: numerous knicks, probably from windstorm. Tires: badly cupped, wrong size (635 vs 645), had to replace at 20K.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2007 Charles A. EARLYSVILLE, VA  05/05/08  n/a HVAC has failed for the 2nd time in 15000 miles. Dealer is replacing the heater module as we speak. Torque converter engages and disengages constantly in traffic. The engage - disengage - downshift - upshift - reengage ---- sequence is continuous and right in the middle of normal driving functions. It is annoying on a car this good. On engagement of the torque converter, the engine lugs, stumbles and misses. This condition worsens in winter with development of a little carbon in the cylinders and clears after a run at highway speed for an hour or so. Dealer cannot diagnose. No flags are set by the OBDII.  
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2007 Robert C. FLORHAM PARK, NJ 04/15/08  n/a Similar electrical system issues on my vehicle seem to have been resolved by replacement of iginition switch. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2007 John G. SEBASTIAN, FL  03/22/08  4.00 I love my Grand Cherokee, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat, I don't care what Consumer Reports says, the Jeep is a great vehicle, I've had four Jeeps, and have had nothing but praise for all of them. Consumer Reports mag. doesn't live on a daily basis with the cars they test, what could be better than info from an owner.

The are situated over a large steel curved bar above the engine . An engine which is very hot at operating temperature. The plastic outlets become very brittle and eventually break off. 
jeep  grand cherokee   2006 Iris C. BRIDGEPORT, CT  08/20/11  2.00 Stalling problem while driving scary to drive and dealer cant find the problem having more than one diagnostic which means spending more money trying to find the problem and the problem still there,not fair. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 Jeff  M. LYNCHBURG, VA  07/07/11  4.00 Overall very good @ 54K miles, but I do have a problem with passenger window being possessed, opens for no reason! 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 Ken S. PEMBINA, ND 02/08/11  3.00 Have had air bag light on dash for some time;get dealer to clear the code and within a couple days light comes back on.Will driver side air bag work properly in a collision? Likely not after reading all the complaints about air bags on this site. Mileage:60000 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 EILEEN S. AVON, CT 07/07/09  5.00 Second time replacing the solenoid component.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 Jerry M. DUNCANSVILLE, PA  11/28/08  3.00 Over the last 2 months, the car would make a strange sound from what seems like the L side of the front of the car, the gauges would stop and the car would shut off. After drifting off the road and shutting the car off and re-start the car the gauges began to work and the car would run normally. The check engine symbol remained on. The Jeep dealer could not determine what was causing this problem. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 Peter & Marilyn G. BEMIDJI, MN 10/28/08  1.00 Transmission has not shifted correctly since the day the vehicle was purchased. Dealer cannot or will not correct the problem. When the vehicle is not under load, and the transmission attempts to shift up at approx. 35-40 miles per hour, the transmission free wheels and then either skips a gear, or goes into the next gear with a thud. A previous Jeep we owned had the transmission rebuilt twice (reverse and overdrive went out when the temperature got down around minus 30 degrees) and then the transmission was replaced. The 2001 Jeep we owned went back under the Lemon Law, it had 7 power steering units and the dealer could not find out what was causing the problem. Some "lucky" person bought the Jeep at a dealer auction in Minneapolis. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 Andrew W. ,   10/24/08  3.00 Mine has just caught fire - electrical fault, I believe. has anyone had anything similair?

My headlights kep blinking and the njust shutting off on their own. The lights on my radio and air condition dials are dimming out. I have only had my car for a year. Besides that I lOVE my car. It rides GREAT! 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 Dan L. LITTLETON, CO  09/19/08  1.00 The front end either came out of the factory with problems or was damaged prior to being sold to me as new. At 17K miles needed front wheel bearings, rotor and pads and aftermarket lower control arms. Still can't get in proper alignment 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 Audrey M. HALETHORPE, MD  07/25/08  1.00 I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with a Hemi. It's 43,000 miles and the piston broke requiring a new engine. My car is always up to date on service and never driven off road. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 Leon M. HONOR, MI 07/11/08  4.00 Entry could be easier for tall people and mileage could be a couple of MPG better. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 J H. WILMINGTON, NC  07/19/07  3.00 2006 GC Limited 5.7 Hemi, on several occasions the vehicle electrical system would turn off\on\flicker on and off as though there was an electrical short. If I turn the lights on 'Auto' the symtoms would generally go away. The dealership is unable to identify the issue. It seem to be during the hours of 'Dusk'. I'm thinking the 'Light Sensor' may be going bad. Dealership is clueless. I just live with the issue. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 Frank E. HATTIESBURG, MS  06/14/06  5.00 Jeep has built a wonderful vehicle with the 5.7 multi-displacement Hemi 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 Michael T. STATEN ISLAND, NY 05/25/06  1.00 cheap plastic interior,noisey ride,many problems,my 2000 had much better interior materials,better seats etc, would not buy another jeep,sold my 2006 in 7 months. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 Jason S. MURRELLS INLET, SC 02/05/06  4.00 Good all around so far. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2006 K W. TAMPA, FL 02/04/06  1.00 I lemon lawed the 2006 jeep grand cherokee because all the lights in the dashboard would go off and the engine would shut down. Warning lights would then come on. Sometimes while driving at high speeds on the interstate. Very dangerous. Chrysler and the dealer could have cared less. Chrysler said to call the dealer and the dealer said to call Chrysler. Also, the jeep was never sealed properly on the passenger side (at the factory) and when we had a heavy rain, the entire jeep flooded. Had an inch of standing water on the floor boards. Happened on a Friday night. Dealer - Jerry Ulm in Tampa, FL (now closed and reopened in Pasco County, FL) made me wait until Monday to bring it in as "body shop" closed. Dealer then left jeep for 2 weeks (wet and molding) until pieces of new carpets came in for patchwork replacement job. This was all after having the jeep only several months. Yes, MONTHS. Horrible experience. Ultimately, the dealer finally found a loose ignition switch. When the keys would move (from vibration while driving), it would turn it to the off position. I believe this is what was causing the vehicle to shut down. Chrysler should know about this loose ignition switch problem by now as I lemon lawed the vehicle back in 2008. After a 3 hour panel hearing in front of the Attorney General, Chrysler (and their attorney) lost and Chrysler had to pay my loan off and give me all my money back and I gave them their molded rusty dangerous vehicle back. I turned it right back in to Jerry Ulm (now in Pasco). The managers there were awful and could have cared less about the safety, the mold, etc. Manager told me once you drive off the lot, it is your problem. Well, now it is his. HORRIBLE. Good Luck to all who have this vehicle.  
jeep  grand cherokee   2005 Melissa  P. DUNNELLON, FL  05/22/12  5.00 I love my Jeep Grand Cherokee what else is there to say :)

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Larry B. INDIAN HILLS, CO 05/15/11  3.00 Very hard seats and no side bolsters to support while 4-wheeling. Poor legroom, esp for the driver. Main key module interface went out, after many replacement keys, they replaced the in car module and it has been fine. 1 cyl. head went bad..replacement was bad. second replacement was bad, those were all pre-assembled "kits" from Chrylser; Dlr ordered all parts separate and assembled themselves, that worked. An extended warranty is almost mandated due to Chrysler/Jeep quality problems. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Ed B. AUSTIN, TX 03/14/11  5.00 Can't believe all the ranting about the 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited. Bought mine in 2007 with 34k miles. It has been back to the dealer once for a brake sensor problem that was covered under the Jeep extended warranty. I couldn't be happier. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Jo W. WOOSTER, OH 12/15/10  3.00 Have never liked all the blind spots w/this model. Twice, last week we were at stop light, totally stopped with foot securely on brake when Jeep accelerated and jumped forward.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Asheena W. CASTLE HAYNE, NC 11/04/09  2.00 The dashboard lights and headlights flicker at the same time for no apparent reason. It appears to be an electrical problem. It does this fairly frequently. Also, when it rain the water drips into the jeep from the handle on the driver's side. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Manuel M. MIAMI, FL  10/12/09  3.00 first problem that I have with my GC. It won't start so I had to tow it to the dealer 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Art I. MONTGOMERY, TX  08/16/09  2.00 Door handles 3 out of 4 broken look like poor design sress from cable breaks plastic. Dealer says that whole door panel must be replaced at a cost of $545.00 parts and labor out of waranty. At Edmunda Car Space this problem has bee reported since November 2007 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Stewart C. ,   08/04/09  3.00

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Don K. WAKEFIELD, RI  05/20/09  1.00 3.7 6 cyl with nag1 mercedes trans extremely poor combo with numerous problems. anti-locks electrical/mechanical problems, very poor fit & finish inside and out, cheap plastic dash in a 30 grand car? Might as well have bought the hemi for better gas mileage than the 6 cyl. The car I had waited to buy all my life is just one big disappointment. Chrysler cut one corner to many and now they're the recipient of the final slicing and dicing themselves. Say goodnight Gracie - please turn out the lights.  
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Hans L. FORT LAUDERDALE, FL  05/10/09  3.00 best car in the world 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Dave N. RAYMORE, MO 05/02/09  4.00 If you choose to own a Jeep there are several things you should know: 1 Buy a total care extended warranty, shop on line for it and then use the price to get your local jeep dealer to get close to the best price. 2. Before you drive through water have a mechnic extend the breather tube for both axles. Stock is too short and water will get into the bearings. Later you will have gear noise, but it is the bearings that have begun to rust, because water got into the breather tubes 3 know that you can purchase an extended warranty up until your original warranty expires. I bought an extended warranty on a 2005 GC Limited when it had 35627 miles on it, during the 3rd year. Now everything is covered until 60K miles. I could have spent more to go to 100k but at 59k I can purchase an additional warranty. Jeeps are unmatched in tracktion, and fun to drive, but protect your self with a warranty. I hope this helps someone

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Charles R. ANTIOCH, TN 04/29/08  1.00 I own a 2005, Jeep, Grand Cherokee with approximately 40,000 miles. I was driving when I had total transmission failure. The vehicle would not move when applying the gas. I coasted the vehicle off to the side of the rode and applied the brakes to stop. I put the vehicle into park and got off the brakes and the vehicle began to move forward. I had to apply the emergency brakes to stop the vehicle from moving even though it was in park. The vehicle was towed to the dealership and I was told the input shaft bearings was stripped out in the transmission. To my surprise Chrysler warranty only cover the power train for 36,000 miles. I will never buy another Chrysler vehicle again.

Struts for rear lift gate and hood needed to be replaced. A knob on CD/Nav is broken - not covered by extended warranty because Chrysler lists part as a NAV system - warranty only covers CD (I am being told the CD player could break and it is NOT covered because the part number references a NAV system.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Rick N. , NY  11/29/07  3.00 I bought my jeep new and love it just at 200,000 km. but, it has has a warning light that keeps coming on and won't reset until it goes into the dealer and I am driving away. The navagation display is backward dim during the day and bright at night. When the vehicle first starts in the morning it takes a while before the transmission starts to go. I also find the leather seats very hard. Just spent $1,000.00 for a leaking heater core. Just priced a new one with the rebates - $1500.00/ month for 3 yrs and my truck... looks like keeping it.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Melissa L. TOLEDO, OH 10/18/07  1.00 I have had this jeep in the shop numerous times. 6-8 times for the radio, once for the transmission, I drove through water 10 in. high in a parking lot and it wrecked my engine. Jeeps aren't off road like they claim, twice because water was coming through my roof which caused water damage and the head liner had to be replaced. and others I just can't remember right now. Not happy with this jeep at all, will never own another one. Chrysler doesn't give good customer service. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Walker R. LEWES, DE 08/17/07  1.00 I am 66 years of age and have owned a variety of vehicles. The 2005 Jeep Cherokee is the worst vehicle, by far, that I have owned. 19,000 miles transmission failed - had to be replaced. There were 5 previous problems with the transmission. Will never own another Chrysler/Jeep product - regardless of the lifetime power train warranty. I purchased a 2007 Buick Lucerne - great car. 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Emanuel G. RIVERDALE, GA  03/10/07  5.00 Seem to be very reliable , comfort is better than expected .I have owned 2 Jeeps prior to this one and the '05 mod. rides the best.-EG.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Pat K. GRAND LEDGE, MI 04/17/06  2.00 I bought the vehicle new, my first new vehicle and 've experienced numerous problems. First the ABS lights kept coming on. i would hear a loud thud and then the light would come on. I took it to the dealership, but by that time the light was out so they couldn't do anything. It was in at least 4 times for this. That was fixed. Then the next thing was the engine light came. The vehicle was at the dealership at least 4 times for that. The next thing was that water was pouring in thru the interior of the vehicle (not from the sunroof, but from the dash area. There is still frozen water where the sunglass storage area is. The seats and carpet were soaking wet. The dealer could not find where the problem was and could not duplicate it, even though they saw the water coming in. The last thing was the gas guage broke and they didn't have the part (it was on back order) so I am still waiting, 10 days now. I love the look of this vehicle and it's handling, but doubt that I would buy another Grand Jeep Cherokee again. I am concerned when my warranty expires that I will have to pay for the repair expenses.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2005 Jim R. VALLEY STREAM, NY 08/03/05  4.00 I have a little over 16,000 miles on this car so far and the only problem with it is the passenger seat air bag warning that the air bag is shut off when no one is in the seat and nothing else is on it either. This is an intermittent problem. The only other complaint is that the "A" pillars by the windshield are thick and obstruct viewing to a degree. The reports of a drivers knee hitting the ignition key and shutting off the car baffle me. I'm 6'2" and I've tried to adjust the seat so my knee would hit the key and cannot do it without having the steering wheel in my chest because the seat is so far foward. If people are driving this close to the wheel they have bigger problems than hitting the key!

Meanwhile my daughter's Toyota is past 100,000 with no problems!

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2003 BOB S. SARASOTA, FL  01/18/04  3.00 I purchased my 2003 JEEP Grand Cherokee...NEW ...I now have 90,000 miles on it....and had driven it for 60,000 miles before I finally was able to get the principle problems fixed....mostly by doing my own research....dealers don't know what they are doing. The 2003 Grand Cherokee has several problems that need to be addressed... ...60,000 MILES BEFORE THIS PROBLEM WAS FIXED # 1...A/C...poor ventilation...blows Warm when a/c is on..this is caused by the in-side dash....controll door mechanism....has to be replaced. ...I complained for over two years....dealer said it worked fine...Literally...I would pull into the dealership and the A/C would start blowing COLD AIR...they finally discovered it was the above "door" that mixes the ac & warm air....After 60,000 miles #2...Airbag Warning Light comes on periodically...along with warning bell ...90,000 MILES WHEN THIS PROBEL OCCURRED AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT...came on while I was on vacation...would peridically come on...then off...along with the annoying "BING"...sometimes would be off for a few days at a time... I took it to a dealer...they put their COMPUTER on it...showed "Passenger air-bag "squib"....short to battery" ...They replaced the "Clock Spring" in the steering wheel...$ 175.00 & labor...that wasn't it. ...They then removed the Dashboard...to look at the Passenger Airbag....could not find the problem... I took it to another Dodge Dealer upon my return from vacation...they said Air Bag replacement is likely cause I didn't agree.... Over a two week period, after putting up with the annoying "bing"...I began by visually checking wiring in the engine compartment. ..I noticed a wiring harness on the Passenger side ...I noticed two wire that were touching one another...I simply used a tooth pick to separate them ...PROBLEM SOLVED ...This is actually caused by wires rubbing together and causing short ....located in wiring harness on engine firewall on passenger si

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2002 Thomas C. NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC 01/21/09  3.00 Good Day, I'm filing a complaint with my 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The heat has stop working. First it was the Passenger side that stopped working and now simply no Heat comes out at all. After extensive web researching, I have found a Shocking number of fellow Jeep owners with the same problem, steming back to 1990 models.Apparently the "Blend Actuators" are defective and start to go out one side at a time, finishing with the main Actuator failing causing no Heat what so ever!! Repair facilities all state the same thing: Entire Dash must be removed to replace two-three different Actuators costing an owner in excess of close to $1000.00. This is not acceptable and extravagant!! From the number of complaints I see on a simple Web search, I'm not the only one who feels this way!

HOUSTON, TX 07/30/10  3.00 the drivers seat wiggles back and forth, but i've made a game of it so it can actually be fun. the a/c never was impressive when it worked, but broken for a year now. thats ok, got to where all i could do is hear (not a breeze one) it working when i turned it on anyway. Probably why i wasnt upset when the compressor went out, didnt much need it anyway. I would fix these things if hadnt melted the blower motor resistor by running the ac anyway. I figured the combination of blower fan on high and my plan to take the bumpiest roads would move whatever was blocking the air from flowing. I wont say it hasnt worked, it just requires patients. Nine months so far. She still starts. A squirt of graphite in the ignition every month or so and a new starter assures this. And while she takes off in second gear and tops out in 3rd, its better than those gears being 1st and 2nd. This might, or might not have someting to do with the engine light that stays on day and night. . Its likely to burn out soon, at which time Ill assume these problem to be fixed and the car witll be like new again.  
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2000 Larry L. FREDERICKSBURG, VA  05/11/09  5.00 Great car. Had no real problems with it. Had it since 2000 and it runs great. It's gettin old now and small problems are starting to appear.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   2000 Debbie F. BRAZORIA, TX 08/03/06  2.00 I have had a lot of the same problems that other people have had with their 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee; steering gear box (other than rack and pinion) which was in the recall, but the VIN wasn't included (of course), although the manufacturer date was in the same time frame as stated, the brakes and rotors, the door locks including the hatch, the rear tail lights, the coolant low (in which I had to replace the radiator ), the drivers seat bracket, electric windows not working properly even after being repaired, and now it won't even run due to a broken cylinder and now the new radiator has to be replaced due to the new one being defective. The list goes on. I absolutely DO NOT understand why these things are not included on a recall list; well, yes I do, MONEY. Mine still has not been repaired due to the cost (out of my pocket) and I will never buy another one (bought this one brand new and one of the windows didn't work when we test drove it and it had to be repaired before leaving the lot). That should have been a signal, huh?

JEEP  GRAND CHEROKEE   1999 Erik L. SAN BRUNO, CA 08/22/11  3.00 The two main problems that I've had with my 1999 Jeep G C are the SRS light or airbag light and the rear disc brake rotors. Since there was a recall on parts of the seat belt system, it's kind of a shame that Jeep didn't take the time to fix the parts that are normally associated with their SRS system or airbag system. For me, my seat belt sensor was the problem, but I guess for many it's there clockspring that deteriorates. Also my rear caliper had many sticking issues that the dealers never resolved. Finally with the replacement of the calipers, and rotors and a flushing of the braking system, the problem went away. That was after two replacement rotors, many pads, and two replacement calipers also. However, my Jeep is one of the best cars ever to take in the snow or off road on dirt. It flys through snow with great traction control, especially in 4X4. And I would buy it again, that is if I could afford the high prices associated with a bankrupt Chrysler. Unfortunately, they aren't competitive enough and I do forsee them going out of business eventually. That's awful b/c the new 2011 Jeep looks awesome.

Jeep  Grand Cherokee   1996 Robert M. SAN DIEGO, CA 03/22/08  4.00 I HAD a stalling problem on my inline 6 cyl, and I found it to be at the connections at the 3 wire looms connecting to the computor, on pass. side of the engine compartment. I have a update from the MFG and the dealer broke the connection lock, so that the viberation will make in just loosen up just enough not to not make connections. Do this test... With the engine running, grap one wire harness at a time and shake it hard, pull on it lightly to mildly, and if the engine starts to run bad and/or smooth out, it it that connection at the computor, if not move and repeat to the next one, untill you are done, if the engine runs smooth or shakey all the time and not change, it is not this problem. the fix.... I got some sheet metal strap and crossed the 3 connections to the body using the one outboard computor hold down and a body bolt that is directly in line with the computor hold down, if nor it will slip off and the problem may become worse by cutting the wires or/and connections. Or 2 plastic tie wraps around top to bottom of each connection wire loom Robert - Auto ASE cert 
Jeep  Grand Cherokee   1996 Robin M. BLUE ISLAND, IL 10/11/07  3.00 For those who have trouble with stalls, check the computer.
