The module located in the bottom of the Steering Column Control Module (SCCM), retained by three screws, and is the mating point for all the switches (remote radio switches, horn, speed control, steering angle sensor, tilt/telescopic switch, multi-function switch, clockspring) located in the SCCM. The SCM is screwed directly to the bottom of the multi-function switch. All the other switches are mounted on top of the multi-function switch.

This sounds scary if the tech working on the vehicle missed some critical steps. Now I'm hesitant to even let them mess with the steering column.

Anyone with past experience care to comment on this?

I'm glad that the BCM flash worked for you. So what does the trailer package involvement with my head lights shutting on/off.
What's your dealers name, might have to have them look at it. I think I'll bring a steering column module along so they can try that.

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

Well it goes in Tuesday 2/2 again for the seventh time. Jeep technical is supposed to show up sometime during the day to assist this service. We went out and bought a GoPro to capture this off/on lights for them to see for witch they could never duplicate. I don't know why they couldn't do the same in a dark room in there shop. It's kind of fishy it happened 6 times in a short trip and they had it for a whole week and nothing. Searching, this seems like a Jeep thing across all models going back to atleast 12 years ago and our dealer or Technical has never seen this befor.

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

New BCM didn't solve it. Back in 03/08/16 didn't say what there going to do next. I think they just like having it for weeks on time just so the machanics have a nice ride home every night.

Sorry man, sounds like you've just had no luck. My lights still flicker as well, I stopped caring though. Its actually a joke between me and the service people now at the dealership.

Mine is a lease so it will be the next guys problem. As long as it doesn't get worse, I'm just going to leave it be.

This will be our last post on this. Going to rant alittle and post the final outcome from all the lip flapping that Chrysler does. What's funny the dealers repair person looked at our GoPro vidio and said you know what, my Ram truck does the same thing.
We bought ours and feel we didn't get what we paid for. Being a retired GM test Tech and over 30 new GM vehicles we dealt with a few problems but not like our first non GM vehicle. Chrysler doesn't even come close to GM from dealership, Costomer support, Tech Assist. This is totally BS how they support there brand.

Final out come I'll quote from the service sheet from Mar. 8 2016

[/QUOTE]Discussed with Rich from Tech Assist. Issue is headlamps are pulsing with modulation at higher voltage on 2015 vehicles causing Flicker.
Engineering is working on a fix witch is not available at this time. No repair required at this time[/QUOTE]

They have had our Jeep for over 30 days and six attempts for this.
I brought up MI. lemon law and they tell me if I Persue this that I won't have any warrenty at all for any part of the vehicle.

The thing that gets me when Googleing "Jeep lights fricker" this goes back atleast 10 years across all Chryslers platform.
When we bring this up that's all they say is "This is the first we've herd of this"

I don't know how everyone might feel about there handling of this. Just going to say we didn't get what we paid for. This is Chryslers lip flapping at it's best.

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

I lease a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude. Back in January, my jeep had to be towed and have a new battery installed. Now, I'm having the same issues as I'm reading through the threads. The dealership has diagnosed the vehicle as a defective radio causing the headlights and dome light to flicker as well as the speakers to intermittently go mute and the digital dash to turn on and off. I'm hoping the new radio (and a new battery) will fix my problem.

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

I wasn't going to post on this thread anymore but I feel I should.
As my previous post I Quoted (Engineering is working on a fix witch is not available at this time. No repair required at this time.)
FCA stepped up and we have a brand new 2016 Grand Cherokee Limited sitting in our driveway.
I feel the 2016 might be more desirable because just for the shifter problems there having on previous models. I wouldn't be surprised if this turns into a recall and have them replaced for over 100,000 accidents.
They pad all Taxes, License, Title Fees and any proof of any aftermarket assesuries.
MI. Lemon Law I reminded and read it to them that our 2015 met since Bridgit from customer service and Lacy that handles replacement are from a Texas office.
I get free legal service from GM and I'm glad this didn't have to resort to this. Could of been very long and time consuming .
I can't count the times they kept reminding me how busy they are. I kinda get the feeling there not building a very good product.

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

My lights are still flicking also on my 2015 altitude. It happens randomly for part of a second. It's very noticeable though on a dark road or behind someone at a traffic light. I'm hoping to catch it on video one day. If anyone figures out a solution, please post on here.

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

I have a similar issue where it seems like a heavy draw on the electrical system and causes my headlights to dim down for a quick second.. I concluded it was my heated seats ...i believe i shut them off and havent seen the issue back
