Hi Matt. I was wondering if you figured out what the problem with your jeep was. Ours is doing a similar thing. Our windows started not working at times, and now completley wont work, as well as our automatic seat button and the locks. The dome lights are on all the time while driving. And the other night at 1am, the headlights started turning on and off all by themselves. If you've heard anything, I'd greatly appreciate if you could pass it along! Thanks!

Interesting. I have a 2003 Grand Cherokee and yesterday at 80 MPH the thing just died in the number one lane of I-5 in San Diego County. The speedo went to zero, panel lights off, etc. After muscling it to the shoulder of the road, tried to restart and no way Jose. Towed the thing to my driveway where it awaits some help. Once I get itm I'll send you the result. If you get yours fixed first, please let me know what you did. Jon

do any of your lights work?
when i have a electrical prob the first thing i do is install a new battery if it is older than a year.
bad cell in batt could cause it to stop as jeeps are sticklers for the right batt volts as computers dont like flucuations

My Grand Cherokee was sitting in the driveway, keys in the house. I looked outside and noticed that the headlights were flashing on and off and the hazards as well. I went outside and when I opened the door it was dinging as if my keys were in the ignition. The battery ended up being dead, but started up again with a charge. Would this have anything to do with the lights being on auto? If anyone has any information, it would certainly be appreciated. Thanks.

Hey Matt... I responded once, and this is what I found out since...
The problem: windows, locks, mirrors and auto seat button not working... dome ligths on all the time when I drive... headlights turn on and off when keys are NOT in the ignition and when NOBODY is around.
It's not my battery, it's only 2 months old.
The solution??: After talking to my mechanic it turns out the switch (that controls windows and locks inside the driver door) is not communicating with the body control module. The switch is $202.00 and the BCM is $725.00 brand new + labor. I searched ebay with no luck and finally 40 junk yard calls later I found the switch for $35.00 and the BCM for $150.00. I was also doing some more research on line and someone stated that they changed the BCM first and it didn't do anything, and then they put in a new switch and it worked. Since it's signifigantly cheaper, I will be trying the switch first. I will be getting the switch tomorrow and after I get it on, I'll send another message. But I hope this helps!!

Don't think it's the panic button because when I open the door, it sounds like the ignition is on and the dash lights are on. Anyone know where the body control computer ground is or where I could see a wiring diagram?

Does anyone have a solution? I've had this problem for 11 months.. the same lights flickering, seems like the car shuts off but it's not... all guages shut off... and come back on... The dealership blew me off when it was under factory warranty, and now.. blamed corrossion on my battery able- and insisted that the diagnostic revealed a faulty wiring harness. now over $600 later and only 2 weeks since that repair.. AGAIN!! lights flicker, guages off and on.... this is so scary when driving at night... the dealership doesn't care.. and acts like it's my fault.. or that I am SOL.. because it's electrical and are "impossible" to diagnois..
CAN ANYONE HELP???
