2008 Electrical Problems?
A friend of mine bought a used 2008 GC Limited with the 4.7l engine with 35k miles on it about 3 months ago. It now has now has 38k miles. The car seems to be having a few problems. About 2 weeks ago while driving down the highway at 70mph he went to give it some gas to pass a car and it just rev up to 5500 RPM and then just died out and he had to coast to the emergency lane. He turned the car off and restarted it and it was fine again. Occasionally when you step on the brakes only the cener mount stop light works and not the taillights. The light that that turns on in the tailgate seems to short out also. On ocasion you sometimes have to take the light out and wiggle the wire and will work if you get it just right. Now the buttons below the mygig radio (i.e. the ESC button, button to turn off back up sensor, down hill assist button etc...all the buttons along there dont work or light up. You cant turn the ESP off, you cant turn the back up sensors off, you cant use the downhill assist etc... None of those work except for the hazard lights. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

take it back. might be covered by lemon laws but you need to work with the dealer.
