  1. WK2 -Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    The battery on my 2018 Grand Cherokee completely died so I had to replace it. I did the work myself but now the AC/Heater has really low airflow. It worked perfectly fine before battery replacement but now no matter what flow setting I set it to (1-7) it feels like it’s at the lowest setting...
  2. WK- Troubleshooting/Problems
    I have a 2010 Grand Cherokee that I'm looking for some helping figuring out what is going on. Here in Ohio we had below 0 temps for a couple of days like many other places. I tried to start my Jeep but nothing was happening so I thought the cold did something to the battery. Once it warmed up...
  3. WL- Grand Cherokee (2021+ 3-row - 2022+ 2-row)
    is there a better battery for the stop start? It seems the state of charge needs to be >70% for the stop start battery in order for it to work at all. It just continuously states "Not Ready" for which my dealer always points to the list of reasons, but it never lists any of these reasons after...

    My jeep won’t start. I get into my jeep and press the start button and it makes one click and won’t start. All the accessories are on like screen and dash. The brake peddle is very firm. The battery on my dash says it’s at 12v I tried by unhooking the battery for 20 mins and same thing I...

    Hi all! I have a 2022 WK2 limited 4WD and I've had an annoying rattle that only lasts a few minutes when I start driving. It's a loud metal vibration noise (not a plastic-like rattle) that is definitely coming from the passenger battery area. Took it to the dealer for the issue two weeks ago and...

    I’m new to Jeep GC ownership, and need some expert help, please.

  9. WK2 -Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    2017 JGC Hey guys- I was swapping out my battery and I made a rookie mistake of not securing my battery terminals. My ratchet rotated around and I shorted my battery. I have power to the jumper posts, but no power to the fuse box. I have confirmed this by applying battery power directly to the...
  10. WK2 -Suspension/Driveline/Brakes/Wheels/Tires
    My 2018 Grand Cherokee’s air suspension wouldn’t lower. It’s stuck all the way up. Took to the dealer and after diagnosis the air suspension control module is bad. Tech left the module unplugged. Over a week later I find out the part is on back order until 3/22. Approximately 9 days after...
  11. WK2 -Tech Tips/DIY/How To
    There has always been talk about the charging power you can get from the 7 pin tow connector on vehicles. The general consensus is that its not good for much of a charge. My Grand Cherokee has the factory tow package and 220a alternator. I run a 100ah lithium battery in my Travel trailer and...
  12. ZJ- Grand Cherokee (1993-1998)
    Ive got a 1997 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo 4wd 4.0 I6 that died one day and wouldn't start back. I went to swap the battery out and long story short ended up putting it in backwards. The next day my boyfriend put the original battery back in the right way and it started sparking and smoking. I...
  13. WK2 -Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Picked up a used 2015 JGC Limited and I've noticed that the longer it sits with the engine off, the longer it takes the engine to turn over using the push button start. If it's left overnight, it might take a 2-4 seconds to turn over. If it was just running a couple hours ago, no problem. There...

    2018 WK2 Sterling Edition 3.6 w/ 28k, second owner. So problem started a couple weeks ago with the ESS warning on the dash saying to service ESS.

    Hi All, There is a small battery and fuse connected beyond my stereo output..... what is this??? The power comes in via the other connection (rhs) and the speaker out wiring has a battery set up connected in the circuit of one of the pins. This has all been retrofitted by someone before I...
  16. Tech Tips DIY/How To
    If someone wants to save around $40 or $50 on a new battery size on their commander, I noticed that a group size 65 works just fine. The cables have enough give to fit on the different post layout. Just thought I'd share this so others can enjoy the feeling of accomplishing money saving hacks.
  17. WK2 -Interior/Exterior/Visual/Lighting
    2015 Laredo I am finally getting around to installing my light bar. I bought a wiring harness that works great, but how do I connect it to the battery "terminals". We have those battery post in the engine, but the rings at the end of the wiring doesn't fit around them. See picture. Any help...

    I finally had to replace the battery of our 2014 Grand Cherokee Overland 3.6L v6. I purchased an AutoCraft Platinum AGM (model H8-AGM). The battery fits in the compartment under the seat, but there is not enough room now for the support bracket that held in the original battery. It is as though...
