Hi. I just leased a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee last August 2005 and in November 2005 it stalled on me as I approached a light. I thought it was me and ignored it until it happened again a few weeks later. This time I was approaching a light as well. I had it towed to the dealer as they said it was "unsafe" to drive. There, they replaced the O2 sensor. Well, in December I noticed a "Service 4WD System" come on and called the dealer where they said if it happened again bring it in, it was probably just a computer "glich". Just last week, it stalled on me again while I was approaching a Stop sign. I brought the Jeep in to my dealer and they could not find anything wrong with it. Any help?

Give us some specifics to go on, like what motor is in it and is it two or four wheel drive. I'm assuming you're talking about a Jeep Cherokee Sport and not a Grand Cherokee. - dixiecrawler

It turned out to be the cranksaft sensor had gone bad and that was causing mine to stall. It was replaced and has been running fine. I was not getting any codes to tell me it was not working properly and as soon as it was replaced, it started right up. As far as the miss goes, we looked under the hood at night and the "new" wires were sparking everywhere. Now its as good as new. Hope this helps.

Several times when my daughter has entered an intersection to turn, she has be unable to turn the steering wheel and there was no responce from the accelerator. The displays stay on and the dealer says that there is not a stall code in the computer. I am very concerned for her safety. Has anyone else experienced this?

ball joints could be too tight from rust.try seperating tie rod and turn spindle from side to side,if one side turns much easier than the other,check your ball joints and front axle universal joints.if no problem found,check what the alignment specs were after the alignment.for a pull problem to the right,caster on the right front should be 1.0to 1.5 more positive than the left front,while camber and toe should be about the same on both sides.good luck.

I have a 2000 grand cherokee. When I first bought the vehicle the dealership agreed to repair the brakes just after the warranty ended. I have replaced pads about once per year and last year replaced the rotors. In less than a year they started wobbling again. I have read many issues regarding this problem and I agree with everyone else. Jeep chooses to ignore that it is a problem. Also, I did get the same deal about my braking habits.
I love my Jeep, I love it's body style and performance. Though, with the new body style I can't see myself buying another one.
I have driven both Dodge Durango's, Mercury Mountaineer and Mitsubishi Endeavor within the last two years. I get out of them realizing just how bad the Jeeps brakes are. My stopping distance is more than double either of these three vehicles. Even with new pads/rotors the stopping distance on the Jeep was long. It only gets worse as I drive on them. I live in the mountains I have to go up and down hills. I try not to break and instead down shift to a lower gear this does not help. The breaks still go bad every year.
#2750 of 5134 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Stalling and Leaking
Mar 20, 2006 (12:52 pm)
I purchased a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited - V8 automatic, 4x2. It currently has 5k miles. Here are the problems:
- Stalls from time to time when idling - usually pretty soon after it has started up, and when the engine is cold (when it has been sitting for a couple hours). This has happened probably 6 times since I have owned the vehicle and I bought it new.
- The drivers’ side carpet gets really wet. There is no rhyme or reason for this one. The wetness is located just inside the door frame, but it gets better than half of the carpet wet. This issue has been apparent since I purchased the vehicle. This occurs in wet or dry weather, a/c is usually on all the time. I thought the carpet was dirty because someone got in with dirty feet and wet because it had been raining. Crazy me!
I took the vehicle to the dealership – Ferman, on Kennedy in Tampa, and they informed me that they could find nothing wrong with the vehicle. I currently have the vehicle at another dealership to see if they can solve the problem. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced these problems, and if so will you offer some guidance? Thanks.

I took my Grand Cherokee (2000) in for a tuneup and ever since I am getting about 11-12 mpg. Before the tuneup I was getting 16 or so. I have taken it back to two different places and both say the diagnostics are perfect and there's nothing wrong with it and have no suggestions for why the gas mileage is worse now. Has anybody else experienced this?
