Jeep Commander Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs)

Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) are issued by vehicle manufacturers to help automotive technicians diagnose and repair problems reported by consumers and repair shops.

TSBs contain up-to-date factory fixes for difficult to diagnose problems such as rough idles, intermittent stalls, hard starts, and all kinds of "shakes", "rattles" and "clunks". TSBs also describe service procedures that may improve performance, reduce future breakdowns, or show a factory authorized modification for your vehicle.

TSBs are not recalls, though, and you may be expected to pay for their repair if you vehicle is already out of warranty.

Xkjeeps.com has put together a comprehensive Jeep Commander Technical Service Bulletin page where they keep track of every TSB and recall for the Jeep Commander, and have organized all the information (TSB number, date and title) in a neat and easy to access table. Normally consumers have to pay in order to get copies of the actual TSBs, but xkjeeps.com has included links to the pdf version of most of the TSBs for the Commander directly from this table.

Other way to get access to the full text of all the TSBs for your vehicle is to get a subscription with a service called Alldata.com ($24.95/year per car) You will also get illustrated diagnosis and repair procedures, diagnostic charts and trouble codes, component locations and diagrams, factory maintenance schedules and more.
