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.

Wont go in four wheel drive


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......

Heater coil is leaking in my 2005 jeep grand cherokee car


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.

Service 4-wheel drive light is on might this just be that the system needs to be updates?


Usually this is built into the system at certain miles on the vehicle. I would have a reliable auto center check it out.

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.

Transmission shift points are controlled by the vehicle computer. Take your Grand Cherokee to a Jeep/Chrysler dealer to have the computer checked and possibly update the computer firmware.

My 97 Grand Cherokee Laredo has the display screen for service and notification of low fluids and shows the jeep body. It tells me how many miles til my next service and so forth. I was wondering what...


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!

I hope this helps! :)
