Has anyone every recevied a notification from Chrysler that your vehicles computer has been updated? Took mine in today and it costed me $350 to have it updated.
The dealership told me the Chrysler was suppose to mail a notification of updates to the owners. The original bumper to bumper warrenty just expired 4 weeks ago. The dealership also wanted to charge me $549 for new sparkplugs, wires, pvc value and to clear the carbon out of the engine.

Re: 2005 Grand Jeep Cherokee Copmuter Updates
I would call the area zone manager.
If this dealership has been your only service utility I would ask the Service Manager if he could charge it out to another vehicle VIN number.
This may seem underhanded but I know it happens for good customers.

This is a common problem for most jeeps...The only safe thing you can do is just check all drivetrain components for leaks and add to anything low...(You can disconnect negative battery cable to re-set computer and the trouble light will go off..It may stay off)..If nothing is leaking and nothing seems wrong and all works fine take it to dealer and have it scanned....It may just need a flash update for computer system...Or a simple sensor../perhaps a certain solenoid....I once worked for Chrysler and we had these problems with trouble lights with all Chrysler products...Most we're simple flash updates that were needed.....It may be some type re-call....you never know...Chrysler has a lot of issues...Of course all vehicles do but Jeep was once their own company AMC ..I think they should have stayed that way.........Hope this helps......Brooks......
Happened on my 05 Jeep. Had antifreeze leaking into the interior. Brought it into the mechanic and there was a spot on the piping (i guess that's what it would be called) that was rusted causing it to leak. It's all one piece so the whole heater coil had to be replaced. Unfortunatley, not cheap. Cost me about a grand. (I'm trading in my Jeep) If you knew how to replace the heater coil yourself, I'm sure it'd be cheaper but from what the mechanic told me, it's a common problem with Chrysler's vehicles. That along with the rear differntial breaking, which was another grand I put into my Jeep.
I've had my 2005 Grand Cherokee into the dealer 5 times for the same issue and they've replaced a bunch of stuff, but have not found the problem yet. A quick fix, I've found, is to jiggle the key in the ignition. Doesn't fix the problem, but it does stop everything from going crazy! Let me know if anyone has the actual fix.
there is no set time to update it, if there is a problem the manufacturer has IDed as a software issue and u have this problem they will do the update, sometimes this is under a recall, most times it is on a case by case basis..
The most likely cause of something like this in a Chrysler vehicle is a faulty Body Control Module (BCM.) I believe on the Grand Cherokee, it's located under the driver-side instrument panel. It will likely have to be replaced, but you may want to contact the dealer to see if re-programming the BCM might help it. These modules aren't cheap, unfortunately!
