new member from the Netherlands, Europe

Hi,

I'm René, 56 years of age, living with my wife, daughter and dog in Zoetermeer ( Sweet lake city) , a small town between The Hague and Rotterdam in The Netherlands.

I bought a 2007 GC with a 5.7 HEMI engine and about 55000 miles on it. The last few days it suddenly occured that all the dash control lights came on while driving, The gages went first wild and than dead, the radio and Navigation stopped. After a few seconds all went back to normal only the "service electronic brake system"stayed. The engine was running fine during all of this. I took out the key, started it again and everything was back to normal.
This happened a few times since than. The dealer reset the computer and it didńt come back, but I guess thatś no permanent fix. Any tips??

I drove a 2001 Tahoe before this Jeep . I had 120000miles on it and never had thse kind of issues, so i.m not all that satisfied with the Jeep until now But that will be better as soon as I've made it dependable.

Re: new member froem the Netherlands, Europe

Thanks, I'll check that, I also read about the ingnition switch or the light switch, but Iḿ a bit hesitant starting to replace random parts without knowing for sure if they are the cause. USA- carparts are a kind of expensive and hard to get over here.

Re: new member froem the Netherlands, Europe

Welcome to the garage fellow Dutchie. Eventhough i live in Brazil now, i was born and raised in Voorburg and lived in Zoetermeer a few years as well.
You have come to a great site, tons of information and a lot of people who have been there and seen all.
I know that these modern electronic cars can give you a hard time, but for sure you will find a solution soon.
If you need any part(s), check out the online car part shops like www.rockauto.com or www.justforjeeps.com and compare the prices with local.
And about those 40 C, was that 20 C in the morning and 20 C in the afternoon

Welcome!

JeepChryslerParts on ebay is worth a shot. I've gotten a lot of parts from him. He's based in London, so shipping won't be too bad either
