Re: BURNT 2011 Grand Cherokee

if it was the battery...why isd the passenger seat not burned on the bottom? Looks to me like it started in the headliner just from those pics...
And...from my understanding...the battery used in the 2011+ is safer than a normal battery...

yeah, in looking again, I think you are right, does look like the headliner area. I would guess that if it's caused by some failure, it will be sent back to the factory to be completely disassembled in case some recall is necessary.

Re: BURNT 2011 Grand Cherokee

I had a '90 Mustang who's engine caught in fire when it was parked. I'm pretty sure it was caused by a faulty replacement alternator (rebuilt) that was put in about two week earlier. It looked to me like the fire started in that area. I'm guessing a short or something. No definitive proof or anything, though.

Re: BURNT 2011 Grand Cherokee

Damn and there was a car seat in it too. But looks like it started from the front seat pass side.

Re: BURNT 2011 Grand Cherokee

Looks like a car seat in the back...someone taking a drive with the family, Jeep ignites and it's gone...

Anything in the local newspaper?

Call the local fire dept and ask for cause of vehicle fire?

Re: BURNT 2011 Grand Cherokee

Maybe the passengers head exploded?

Must have figured out how to enable Sirius Travel Link.

Re: BURNT 2011 Grand Cherokee

Yes, there was actually 2 car seats in the back.

There was nothing in the paper about it at all. I want to call and find out what happened but not sure what to say to the dealer yet. They probably wont tell the truth about it anyways. Just want to know what happened before I go buy one lol

Looks that way to me. New battery technology, too.

Re: BURNT 2011 Grand Cherokee

Maybe it was due to the Commandview sunroof I know production was on hold for them....I asked on thethe live Jeep chat why it was stopped and if they were back for ordering and they never answered :/

Ordering was stopped around Sept 20st ish
