Jeep puts the number of potentially affected units at 36,929 in the U.S., with another 1,300 potentially affected units in Canada.

The Problem

The Grand Cherokee L’s smart lighting module allegedly may have received an incomplete software update while on the production line. The incomplete software patch may cause one or both headlights to stop working, causing visibility issues while driving at night.
