Really?  All the reviews rate them as one of the best 4x4's for the money. Not found a review yet which doesn't make them shine.

Where do they have reviews of 8 -10 year old GC's compared with XJ's or Discos of a similar age??l

Try google !

There's hundreds of them. Try doing a search for grand cherokee review and take your pick of 2 million hits which come back, there's a few which will be reviews of the ZG / ZJ.

Sounds like door control module for the entire immobiliser system....they are located I think in the passenger front door

Swapping a wire to disconnect is not an insurance friendly option...

If on his driveway, that would be a fantastic test to prove where the problem lied though - If not just to get the engine warmed up.

Rocker switch perhaps to re-arm the imboliser and alarm?

Mine scrubs a little on full lock, but not 1/4 of a turn back.

They can on occasion have issues with the viscous coupling in the transfer case, easy to check with the one of the front wheels up, with a breaker bar on one of the wheel nuts can you turn the wheel (just)?  If so your transfer case is OK and it's just because it's permi 4x4.

I always thought it was the LSD that caused that.I scrubbed the tyres quite badly when i first got mine,took a while to get used to the huge turning circle.!
