Okay so got ahold of Jeep and got a Case Manager. Made an appt with my local place again. THIS TIME I got it on video of what the lights and instrument panel were doing. The service manager is really nice, always was. waiting for my appt I figured out what I thought was the problem. The actual switch where I turned the lights on. Mechanic last year kept telling me they couldn't figure it out because the headlights and instrument panel lights weren't on the same circuit etc. BUT DUH (can't believe I didn't see this last year) they are on the same SWITCH together. So manager tells me the mechanic has to hook it up to stuff looking for any error codes etc. I told him it was a waste of time and this should be on record from last year. BUT didn't have my jeep for the day and they didn't find anything. Took it in the next day when I could leave it all day and low and behold they called and said good news we know what the problem is we just need to order the part...I said..yeah it was the switch right...and he said yeahhhh how did you know???
DANG! SO it seems I have lucked out and it was only the switch and not al the other electrical problems alot of you are having. Keep you updated once they fix it.
#13 of 35 Jeep Commander - all problems/website for complaints

I was sent a link to file a complaint (there are many already) at consumeraffairs.org. Perhaps someone will listen and help. My 2006 Commander stalls, will often not start and has electrical issues. My dealer has repeatedly told me that "they can not duplicate my concerns" or that I have purchased "bad gas." Yikes.

Has anyone figured out what is wrong with the Commander- my car is stuck at a parking lot and will not start at all. Having it towed tomorrow. Just wondering what or where to tell the mechanic to start looking.

esp bas traction lights go on and off whenever they feel like. also the transmission light goes on and off, i have no cruise control now. it even turned off on me on hwy 77 going about 60 with a semi right next to me, very scary! took it to dealer, they told me it was the rain sensor module causing mayhem to all the sensors and quoted me 600 for the module. found it online for 80. not surprised...
#16 of 35 STALLED AND ANGRY

My 06 commander has had the head light issue, I am lucky enough to have a great mechanic who figured out the issue right away and warranty covered the issue. just a switch replacement. But now our commander is sitting outside our house stalled. It refuses to start, when u leave the driver door open the cd changer continously changes cds even tho the car isnt on. if you close the door then the cd changer stops. if I turn the ignition, it clicks and all the lights start flashing calling for me to get the rear park assist serviced and a key code error PO153, Transmission over temp and service 4wd system. WHAT THE HECK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have put money into this thing and now I have a brand new baby and a non reliable car. I have actually driven down a hill and ALL my brakes locked up and slid me near a cliff!!!!! UGH frustrating!!! Ideas anyone???

Hi I have a 2006 jeep commander ! I just took a 10 hr road trip and on the way home the cruise control stuck! Accelerating to 100 mph before I could cancel it! Do you think it could be the same problem?

You may think Im crazy, but I have experienced some of the same thigs as other people, with the flashing head lights and the stalling at red lights. I personally think that the jeep not cranking up is a totally different problem. I was at my local mall about two months ago and when I got done shopping and got in my car to leave, it would not crank. After trying everything under the sun, over the course of three days I randomly tried my spare key, which my girlfriend normally kept on her in case I got locked out. She had taken me up to the mall for my forth day of working on the car, and I realized I had left my key at home. She said "don't worry I have your spare" I took it from her, unlocked my car and stuck it in rolling down the driver window which had been my routine the past few days. My girlfriend said "let me hear the click noise its making so I turned the key and it crunk right up. Still to this day my other key will not work.
#20 of 35 ABS light on dashboard flicker
Nov 23, 2011 (7:50 pm)
I have a 2006 jeep commander. I been having a problem with the abs brakes. The abs will light up on dash also esp. I drive down the street on dry road with foot on gas and the abs will engage and start braking. It happens intermittly and when I take in to dealership they say can not duplicate problem.
I also have had the headlights go off and on. The fan off and on and entire dash light up. Taken back to dealership twice so far. I don't know what to do at this point. I worry I will be driving down the highway and the brakes engaging.
I already went through a lemon law case around 3 years ago. The inside of my windshield would leak. I would have to chip ice from inside of windshield durning winter. Took it in countless times.Finally they subed it out to a company that specialized in leaks and it got fixed.

I used to have those problems with the lights on my 06 commander, and they stopped once we replaced the blower motor because it burnt out. The headlights used to go off and on, the dashboard lights did the same. The fan blower finally went out, and when we replaced it, some of the wires were fried. I think that was causing the problem with our commander because it hasn't happened since we fixed it. I hope you get the issues worked out.
