The problem is likley caused by a defective brake light switch, it is located under the dash above the brake pedal arm, you must remove any under dash covers to see it.

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Jeep

I believe that the 2006 Commander uses the newer CAN protocol, which replaced the ODB-II system. Many of the auto parts stores such as Autozone have a scan tool that they can hook up and read the codes that are causing the malfunction light to come one (sometimes also referred to as the check engine light or service engine light). If you go there and tell them the year make and model they should be able to tell you if they can read the code.

Once you have that code they should be able to tell you what it means and if that is not helpful or clarify the issue, post it up here and I will see what I can find for you regarding the issue.

next to the fan motor there should be a connector that has three or four wires that attached to the blower resistor. it should have two screws holding it to heater case, just pull it out and replace.

Testimonial: "This info was very helpful but need a little more info of where the fan motor is located. I will post another question to find that info."

SOURCE: install a altenator for a 2006 jeep commander

I would rate this a 5 in difficulty. If you have a metric socket set, basic hand tools and a supertine belt tool it's fairly easy repair. You can rent a surpentine belt tool at Autozone.

Disconnect the battery
remove the cowling
remove the supertine belt from the altenator pully
disconnect the red wire on the back of the altenator
disconnect the harness plug from the altenator
remove the bolts holding the altenator to the mounting brackets.
Reverse the process with the new altenator and it it's done.
Make sure your battery is charged before you start the engine a low battery can cause damage to your new altenator.

Why does my 2006 commander rear brake grab when turning?


hi, if the grab is while braking, there may be an uneven piston to pad/drum wear or adjustment -- check brake assembly and pressure equalizers on the lines -- they put equal hydrolic pressure to both wheels - if one is bad, that will also cause problem of grab
