Updated with;

5.7

- 05-07 models have delay issues with electronic throttle. Dealer rplaced MAP sensor on inlet manifold and installed updated throttle pedal (requires wiring modifications as it's a new design). Can report it is much better now. Will reconfirm in 1 month.

Re: Wk/Wh 2005~ Grand Cherokee Common Faults And Issues

I hear it too, but only with the stereo off, and even then it's not all the time. I've always forgotten to mention it to the dealer.
