i have a 2005 jeep grand Cherokee lardo and about a week ago the heated seats would stop working and star back after the truck would sit turned off over night, then today the radio would turn on and off, service electroinc brake system would pop up on the dash the dash would start dinging, and last night my key wouldnt unlock the truck. but has all day today. i work at a ford dealership and have never heard or seen anything like this. this is actually my second jeep i had no probs with my 97 but i brought this one used only a month ago. if someone could point me in the right direction to look that would be great

Have your mechanic check the CPS (crank positioning sensor) if he hasn't done it yet( cheep part expensive on labor) or the modle inside the distributer.

Having the same problem replaced o2 senor map sensor, then know the muffler round as a balloon and backfired. the pcm screw was held by 3 screws and loose. when he pulls on the harness it shuts off. you are saying is is grounding out on the firewall. remove the bootom left bolt and stuff a shirt behind the pcm do you leave the bolt off. some one said in another post replace screws with plastic ones. we are frustated. it seems the pcm was replaced in 06 we just got this in sept 11. i do not want to replace this pcm.

I'm not particularly knowledgable about such things but..... I have a 2001 JGC. I had a problem arise effecting both the heater vent controls and the cruise control. Both stopped working at the same time. I did some research online and learned that it was due to a vaccuum leak. Took the car to a mechanic and explained what I found online. He found and fixed the leak and both issue were solved. It was a very inexpensive repair. Hope that helps.

Plastic screws will work too. I got too frustrated with having to go to the hardware store to buy the plastic screws. I had plastic spacers in my tool bag and placed them in between the PCM screws. I flipped the PCM upside down (meaning the harness is still facing forward but the PCM is upside down) and have not had a problem since. I played around with it and finally found a position that worked. For some reason the angle of the PCM mattered as well.

I am experiencing the same issue with my 05 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7L. All guages drop to 0 and it goes into low (tow gear) and the check engine light goes off. I was driving the other night and everything shut down all at once and the Jeep stalled. It started back up and ran fine the rest of the way home. The check engine light is still on but I haven't driven it since then.

To anyone having flickering headlights/interior lights issues - I have found a solution!! I had this problem for 3 years and finally found a specialist that immediately knew what to do. It's your light switch/turn signal. You just need it replaced. It cost me only $200.

I have same exact problem now for past few months on 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee .... Thinking it might be a fuse also but not sure ...??
((And also in addition to previous posts my jeep's whole electrical system instrument panel used to flicker on and off very crazily for no reason but when I would turn the jeep off and back on the instrument panel would light up normal . Took it to dealership and they never could find a problem and now it has not happened luckily anymore in the past couplen years ....))
