1997 Jeep GRAND CHEROKEE Visibility Defroster Defogger System Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID662415
 Internal NHTSA #10217519
 Model Year1997
 File date01/02/08
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemI have a 97 jeep grand cherokee and it doesn't change from heat to defrost or other setting. It appears that the blend doors on the main heater bay are the problem and i also have checked online and find this a common problem and quite expensive to repair. This created a very dangerous situation while driving in a snow storm and not having the vehicle keep up to the demand on the windshield. I was traveling with my 3 young children and the potential for serious injury was high. It also appears that jeep is aware of the situation and isn't willing to fix the problem. Potential death and serious injury are great and this is poor judgment for public safety.
