Dealer charge hundreds for A/C service and the vehicle smells like lysol. Do not let them do this to you.

Indeed, I'm having smell issues with my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited too. Cabin Air Filter changed with no resolution. Other thoughts/ideas?!?!

I also have a problem, i have had the airbag module replaced by the dealers last April 2014 in June it started to fault, some times it goes out
straight away then some times it goes out and comes straight back on then goes out after about 30seconds when driven.
It stays off till i finish the journey when i put it into neutral or revers it comes back on then sometimes goes straight back off, any one had this problem .

PROBLEM SOLVED
I added a small tin of radiator sealant it took about 300 miles of driving before it cured the problem ,the smell was very dry and the screen misted up for a few minutes with a blueish tinge then cleared hope this helps

Problem solved
I striped out the center consul to find that the shift blind's had been fitted wrong and were fouling the multiplug this caused bad continuity on the connections throwing up a fault , I fit them back to the correct position and have had no faults since fault cured .
