Jeep Commander Electrical Problem

  • I was having the same problem. Many people on this site, said the problem was with the ignition. My son had told me that I had too many keys on my key chain and that would damage the ignition. I removed all of the keys except for 2 keys and the problem has stopped. Maybe I caught it before the problem worsen. Try that before sending to the dealer. Good luck.

    Service rear Park assist message and check engine light come on.  When this happens all the lights around the transmission letters on the dashboard start to flash and the transmission starts to slip. Does not do this all the time.   Have had car at dealer for 3 weeks now with no answer.

    Well if the transmission starts to slip I think it's more involved than the common cause for this message--which is usually dirty sensors in the rear bumper. But with the transmission misbehaving, one would have to suspect some damage perhaps to the wiring harness controlling the transmission--whether that be water contamination or something else.

    Until proven otherwise those two issues should be treated as if they are completely different problems.

    First thought is that the transmission might not be slipping, it might be in failsafe mode and not shifting which means it is probably stuck in second gear when this problem occurs.

    That's the real problem here, its the rare that a random failure can be accurately figured out unless it is occurring. In some cases the problem might only be present for a fraction of a second, but once it occurs the symptom can remain for a long period of time. Essentially the symptom(s) is(are) probably that the control module has commanded the system into "limp in mode" or "failsafe mode" until either some period of time after the circuit has restored normal operation or quite often not until the key has been cycled.

    About the only thing common to the two symptoms would be the transmission range selector switch and circuit. The park assist needs to see reverse selected which is one of the responsibilities of the range selector switch. The shifter indicator position in the cluster uses the same inputs. If you could narrow down the circumstances during which the failure occurs so that it could be made to be more repeatable, that would help the technicians make some progress with this.
