From the 2014 Grand Cherokee Owner Manual:

The Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) is part of
an onboard diagnostic system called OBD II that
monitors engine and automatic transmission control
systems. The light will illuminate when the key is in
the ON/RUN position before engine start. If the bulb
does not come on when turning the key from OFF to
ON/RUN, have the condition checked promptly.
Certain conditions, poor fuel quality, etc., may illuminate
the light after engine start. The vehicle should be serviced
if the light stays on through several of your typical
driving cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will drive
normally and will not require towing.


CAUTION!
Prolonged driving with the Malfunction Indicator
Light (MIL) on could cause damage to the engine
control system. It also could affect fuel economy and
drivability. If the MIL is flashing, severe catalytic
converter damage and power loss will soon occur.
Immediate service is required.


WARNING!
A malfunctioning catalytic converter, as referenced
above, can reach higher temperatures than in normal
operating conditions. This can cause a fire if you
drive slowly or park over flammable substances such
as dry plants, wood, cardboard, etc. This could result
in death or serious injury to the driver, occupants or
others.

So the service guy comes and tells me it's a code that relates to the gas cap not being put on right... I laugh a lil an say its cap less on the 2014

Did the service adviser's MIL come on when you told him that? :rofl:

I had the same issue w/ only 495 miles on the clock. Like you, my service guy told me that it was a gas cap issue. When I pointed out that there is no cap he tried to claim I hadn't shut the fuel door correctly... hmmm... Anyway, 1,000 miles later and it has not happened again.

291 miles and the MIL is on! I have a 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited. Was really liking this car, lets hope its something simple. I'm bringing it in to the dealer tomorrow morning.

Yours is a 2014?
Never mind. Just saw your post in another thread you have a '14. That's scary.

Holly crap, seems like more and more problems are popping up with the 2014's. I really wish you guys the best of luck with your Jeeps and that the dealers will get those issues all worked out for you guys and get ya back on the road ASAP, I would be so freakin' PISSED off! Hopefully the Chrysler people see these posts and realize how this affects peoples lives after spending 30-40 K on NEW SUV.

Deadserial 11-04-2013 04:26 PM

Well I dropped it off to get worked on today and they called me and said it was just a coilpack. They replaced it and reset the MIL. Let's hope that's all it was.

There is a TSB for the gas cap light on the capless system. 18-034-13.
I'll attach it.

Hopefully, by now your Jeeps have already had this done.
