I think your dealer has no clue on how to troubleshoot this electrical system. I could see water getting into a module and causing it to fail, but I really don't think it would cause other modules to go bad that did not get wet. If it is multiple modules that are bad I would be thinking more along the lines of a loose or bad ground. It could also be a bad wiring harness which I think is more likely if the issue is in multiple places.

It is the same dealer... but I will say this: They had Chrysler techs come out for the last Jeep, and they are talking to the Chrysler techs this go around, and following what they are being told to do. I dunno.

Re: My replacement is here!

Do the dealers make these decisions, or do they forward the info to Jeep and wait for them to decide?

Re: My replacement is here!

Update: My wife has had success in talking with the owner of the dealership. He says he will convince Chrysler to buy it back, and if that does not work, he will figure it out on his end, but either way, I am getting rid of my second 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

According to my dealer and to the Chrysler corporate guy I talked to, it is Chrysler making the decisions. According to the people AMC and others have talked to, it is the dealer. With my last Jeep, it was Chrysler who made the call to buy it back.

Good. So naturally, the next question is, what will you get in lieu of it?

I have to agree, one is just bad, but TWO? Are you, or were you, considering any other vehicles before the WK2?

I'm thinking its the new electrical bus and architecture is throwing dealers for a loop, and consequently they are just throwing parts at the 2014 WK2 in absence of any real diagnostic.

That's an excellent question... this happened so suddenly, that i have no idea... I gotta start searching around a bit. No offense, but I think everyone I know would b*tch slap me if I got another Chrysler product.
