Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

I had the BCM Flash about 2 months ago - no luck, still flickering. I am thinking about capturing a video of the issue and debating escalating the complaint.

We borrowed a GoPro and captured it and put it on our computer, and stick and they never wanted to look at it.
FCA doesn't even make a pimple on GM's ass.
We were directed to order a new one and there was nothing wrong.
Just get a complaint number and in six weeks you will be driving a new 2017 for you are no longer able to order a 2016

Did they do a buyback? Or did you just order a 2016 and trade your 15?

There were others that had the same options at other dealers but we opted to order another one.
When it came in a third party did there inspection of our 2015 and did the paper work.
Since in was even up, same options it didn't cost us one dime.
Seems like every one on here is just beating around the bush. This is a very easy process.
Get a claim number. Let the process begin.
We got a claim number the same day we took it in for the flickering lights for the dealer didn't have a fix.
We only had the Jeep two days and I called and got a claim number.

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

Our new 2016 is doing the same. We only have 2800 miles on it at this time and were going to wait till we have about 9k like last time and do this again.
FCA is so gullible, this is actually fun.
If any one wants a new one just put your light on manual and turn them off and back on. New 2017 free.

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

I also have the same issue on my 2016 JGC. Did you guys find solution for this problem? Mine is the halogen bulb, not HID.

I put them on high beams and low beams and they would flicker on both settings. None of the interior lights were flickering and the evic display was fine as well. I also watched the battery voltage display on the evic to see if it would show a drop in voltage when the headlights would flicker but the battery stayed on 14V constantly.
Has anyone else had this issue? What could be the reason for this? If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you.
Did you get this problem fixed? I have the same issue on 2016 LGC halogen bulb.

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

After replacing the 2015 with a brand new 2016 JGC nothing has changed. My headlights still flicker on the 2016. I do not have the HID lights either but I believe I've read somewhere that it doesn't matter that they both do it. I don't know what the answer is and obviously FCA does not care enough about it to fix it. I guess they have bigger more serious issues to deal with, ie: deaths and serious injuries caused by their crappy shifter design. As for now I've thrown my hands up.

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

Sorry to hear that. I actually traded my jeep in. Never going back to Chrysler again. Terrible company.

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

Throwing my hat into the ring- Was driving on the interstate last night (2016 75th, Halogen Bulbs) and noticed the flickering. About every 1-2 minutes the headlights would dim and go back to normal and became very annoying once it caught my attention. Something worth a mention was my driving without the fog lights, where they may have been masking the flickering as I usually leave them on.

Going to try driving with/without the fog lights tonight and determine whether it makes the flickering less annoying, seeing there's not much FCA is willing to do besides handing out new jeeps

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlights Flickering

My '15 JGC has been in the shop 5 times for this issue. They have flashed the Body Control Module, then replaced it. Now I have a Case Manager with Jeep Customer Care. They are telling me a TSB is being created for the flicker issue but no timeline for the TSB to be finished. How many other of you got the same story?

It was written on our service paper that FIC technical did not have a fix at this time.
I'm sure they have been working on a TSB for light flicker at least ten years now. If they don't have a fix they need to give you another one like they did with us.
