Question about Cars & Trucks
Here's a link to a site that offers advice from other Grand Cherokee owners' with similar problems. Clearly not the answer but hopefully a step in the right direction: http://forums.cnet.com/7723-7811_102-272172/the-famous-jeep-grand-cherokee-electrical-problem/
PS. Don't hesitate to contact your local Chrysler rep to see if he can't get you to a dealer that is knowledgeable about this problem and can get your vehicle repaired. The factory reps have much discrection regarding "who pays for what" so try and take advantage of that as well. Good Luck!

C1 & C2 in your panel are most likely one of the culprits, if no power at heater at seat. Sounds like testing for power at seat switch is easier to do than get at these circuit breakers in the panel. If you have power at switch at seat, then it's not the fuse/circuit breaker. Good reading at this link for you.

If you have the owner's manual look up fuses in the index, good illustration. If you don't, I do. It shows a relay and a 15 amp fuse. Look at the passenger kick panel, pull the cover, and it is #2 fuse (second from the top on the left) The see the relay you may have to pull the panel (two screws and a clip) the relay is the third cavity down, third row from the firewal side.
Let me know if this works for you?

Definitely, you'll have to take a look to see if any obstruction is visible. To check the fuses first you'll need to find them. The fuse block cover should illustrate what each fuse is for. You can visibly check the fuses, with a flashlight. Just take a look at the sunroof fuse and check that its not burned. That the metal inside goes from one side to the other and its not burned or broken. You can use a test light or a multimeter, a test-light will do. I usually check them visibly, its obvious when you have a blown fuse just by looking at it. Its better just to pull out the suspected fuse to check it.

Unfortunatly, those are the classic symtoms of a bad
heater core. But just to be sure, check the heater hoses at the firewall and make sure that a loose clamp is not allowing coolant to spray into the car.
I don,t know what the part costs, you can find that out by calling autozone/napa or any parts store.
But there probably will be a slight markup by who ever is to do the job. As for the labor, the book allows
5.9 hours for the job. This will give you a place to
start when you check around for the best price.
If you have a mechanic that you use often(and trust)
ask him/her what it will cost. It's not strictly dealer.
Hope this helps.
