#15 of 35 esp bas traction, tranmission lights on and off
Jun 21, 2011 (2:35 pm)
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
Jul 02, 2011 (9:56 pm)
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.

(in addition to the many problems w/my commander that I have discussed here since 2009) I now have 'the sunroof-front windshield leak into the front passenger side' to the point that this morning I too had to scrape ice off of INSIDE of windshield. More: The puddle of water in the front passenger foot well took 20+ minutes to scoop out, and it is still wet after having been covered with large absorbent towel all day.
I just spoke with chrysler corporate and they are calling me back tomorrow.
I also earlier today called a few jeep dealer service centers in the area asking them only to call me back if any of them had actually had their own hands on a jeep commander for this sort of repair; a full business day down, and, so far, nobody has called me back. the last time i spoke with a dealer i was told that it would cost about $600 to repair the leak because they would be replacing all of the tubing that make up the sunroof drains.
Please tell me what was the final solution that actually worked for your commander to stop this leaking.
I have small confidence that Jeep Chrysler will do the right thing and admit this is a manufacturer's flaw, and am prepared to pay for the repair myself. That said, I want this to be a successful repair that doesn't take advantage of me $ as the dealer did when he did not file the warranty papers at time of purchase...
#23 of 35 Might Be Making Progress With Chrysler Customer Service
Dec 30, 2011 (9:07 am)
speaking with Chrysler Jeep Customer Relations Today and while the person I'm speaking with seems to be genuinely trying to determine how best to get this 'Jeep Commander Pandemic' attended to, it seems that the root of the ongoing'ness of the problem is that Jeep Chrysler Corporates Customer Service Policies simply don't allow The Company to take responsibility for putting faulty cars on the road & for the genuine remedy of the problem.
At this point, this will be my 3rd and last Jeep purchase.
Of course, this Jeep Commander will be mine forever, because I certainly can't sell it to anyone else knowing how much of a liability it is (cruise control switching on by itself being the worse example of that liability).
#24 of 35 Still No Luck W/Chrysler Corporate
Dec 30, 2011 (1:32 pm)
today, I endured 2 conversations with very polite but not at all genuinely 'helpful' , i.e., helpful in terms of actually solving the problem , Jeep Chrysler customer service representatives; they were - just as they were when I first purchased The Commander and called Chrysler Coporate regarding the 'stall problems' - more interested in selling me on the 'dealer diagnosis' which the coporate representatives still explain will then entitle me to be considered for a 'good will' rebate on repairs if the diagnosis determines that the problem is not from my negligence but is in fact a manufacturer defect...as if Chrysler Jeep doesn't already know that the problems came with the Commander at time of purchase. What's more, as i also told them in reply to what amounts to no more than a 'give us more of your $$$ gimmick', a.k.a. the dealer diagnosis, the last time they so encouragingly offered me this 'pay for diagnosis' for potential rebate, i didn't get the rebate with corporate telling me that they were not willing to 'rebuild' the car.
