I went to the store and picked up chips and drinks and keep running fine. Got back in it and took me several tries to crank. Kept going dead on the mile drive home. Haven't been able to afford to get it fixed but mechanic replaced computer spark plugs fuel pump and injection system. Still wouldn't crank well. Had new computer programmed. Nothing. Till says 3 cylinders are not working and I need a new motor.

After having service done to the fuel tank under a recall on this vehicle, I now get error code 0544, large exhaust gas leak, . I had service done to the hoses, and two were found damaged near the tank, , I replaced the fuel cap, and finally replaced the computer. But the light continues to come on. I have not found a satisfactory answer, but it must be related to work done by the Jeep dealer.

I brought my Jeep in for a recall N46. The dealership told Chrysler they did the recall but my sheet from them said inspect per recall did not pass inspection too rusted. I called your Agency who told me to call Chrysler. I called Chrysler and they said that I personally would have to pay for all the areas that needed to be repaired due to rust and then they would pay for the recall. They built a faulty vehicle. That is not my fault. It is not my fault the Jeep has rusted. I feel it is Chrysler's responsibility to pay for all necessary repairs so the recall can be completed and the vehicle's safety can be increased.

I have 2 recalls on my Jeep right now. N46 and R06- I was told today because I lived in winter conditions that the N46 - cannot be installed because there is corrosion in the frame of the car making it impossible for the hitch to be installed. So if I am in a collision and rear ended my fuel tank could explode. The R06 could not be preformed which is the occupant restraint control module because there have been no parts available since February of 2015. So I could be driving and my airbags could deploy which will result in an accident. I called the fca recall assistance center and they were unable to give me a solution to either issue. I took time off of work to have these issues resolved and it was a waste of my day and time not to mention the fact that my vehicle is unsafe to drive.
