#683 of 711 JGC "liftgate open" problem
Jan 16, 2013 (3:53 pm)
The rear liftgate on my 2005 JGC closes properly but a "Liftgate Open" idiot message comes up on the dashboard info screen. And so all the interior lights stay on while I'm driving. Any solution?

The first thing I would look at is the liftgate close switch. One bad switch would cause all your problems. I have the older body stlye so I don't know where yours is, but I'm sure you could find that out. Next, given the history of wiring problems in jeeps, I would look into the wiring to the switch. Good luck.

I am getting these codes ( P0320 - P0340 ) when using a scanner to check the engine light. I have already ordered the new sensors seeing as they are quite inexpensive. Should I replace one at a time to see if one is causing them both? How easy are they to replace?

Here ya go . Watch cylinder head with 0331 casting . Just had to replace at 130,000 miles . Heater core blew too ! Yeah big bucks for both , big buck ! Blinkers also have a problem with the relay . Pneumatic openers for hood and rear hatch door are bad . Just a few things that are true of this vehicle . Seems the whole cooling heating system has issues from what I have read . New head gasket, new cylinder head, new heater core, new radiator , what else can go wrong ?

Hello all- looking for some suggestions; we have a 2012 GC Overland, we have had it for about a year and are around 16k miles. Oddly some random electric glitches have plagued us.
1. The Bluetooth is horrible; connectivity to my wife’s i-phone is inconsistent. She gets in the car, if she gets or makes a call, the call always starts out on the headset and then in a minute or so switches over to the car. Once connected, the noise/sound quality is a joke. I can barely understand her when I am on the phone with her.
2. The “EZ exit” seat feature stopped working for almost two months (we checked to make sure feature was activated). Then randomly it started working again and has been fine since.
3. The radio pre sets for “memory 2” will randomly get wiped out
So for the above, as they were minor problems, we have not returned to the dealer. Then this week, while my wife is driving the rear glass hatch (not the lift gate) will randomly release. She then has to pull over and close it. This happened 12 times between Monday and Tuesday. We have an appointment scheduled for Friday, but my guess is that they wont be able to replicate any of these issues as they are “random”
Has anyone else experienced any of these issues or have any solutions?

#691 of 711 ONE CATASTROPHE AFTER ANOTHER
Mar 06, 2013 (10:57 pm)
I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, Automatic, 2WD, the vehicle starts up perfectly but then instantly dies. Not a sputter nothing it's like it just loses spark. The power works fine, the dash lights come on, no problem, automatic & manual head lights work great so far. Power windows and door locks work,my interior lights work. Gas light comes on, but there's gas in the jeep. None of the gauges move at all. After trying to start it multiple times there is no sort of clicking from inside my vehicle like when my alternator went out & my battery kept dying. I recently replaced the alternator 2 days ago. I replaced transmission catalytic converter, muffler, & major tune up 6 weeks ago.
I was driving the jeep earlier, but 20 minutes later, it starts up for a milli~second, then shut down. I've checked the battery cables & clamps, there completely in tact & tightened.
Any suggestions? Other than, get rid of it & get a new car
!!! PLEASE HELP!!!
