I believe this is the first recall notification for the 2014 Grand Cherokee.

Subject: Loss of ABS/ESC & Instrument Cluster Display (13V483000)

Clicking on the "5 Associated Documents" link will expand this to show additional material related to this recall, including the owner notification letter.

I've already had this problem with my Jeep and the dealer took care of it. Some software reprogramming and tightening of the alternator ground cable.

Started mine one evening after work and I had quite a number of MIL lights illuminate on the dash. Also had warnings come up to service the ABS system, the air suspension system, the air bag system and vehicle stability control system.

I figured there had been a voltage hiccup somewhere that triggered all of this. It's not an uncommon thing with computers and sensors connected through bus architecture, so no need to panic if you experience it.

If I remember, the dealer told me that if you cycle through 3 start-stops it will reset until the next event is triggered. They did it with mine and I had no more problems with it prior to getting the vehicle in for the recall service.

Hmm, now I am having second thoughts. If I buy this Jeep I will be taking it to remote locations without cell phone service.

Yes, I understand your concerns about that. Electrical problems can be either simple or next to impossible to track down. With the electrical buss architecture in use today on most vehicles it can be a real crap shoot as to what kind of problems you may or may not encounter.
