Combination of Electrical Issues

Excuse me if this problem has appeared on here already, I have done some extensive searching but cant seem to find this same problem anywhere.

I have been experiencing intermittent issues with my 2008 Commander. This morning I had my air conditioner on and all of the sudden it shuts off, the blower and all just died.

I began to look at my dash and my compass just has "--" where the indicator would be and then my airbag light came on. I was trying to find a decent place to pull over and check things out when after about 30 seconds after everything quit, it all came back to life as if nothing had happend before.

I am thinking that its almost like a relay or a resistor getting hot but at the same time I am not sure how the blower, air bag, and compass could all be tied into the same problem.

If anyone has any help it would be greatly appreciated!

Hey all! I’m having the same problem and have no clue as to what is the fix. I heard someone say it was the Junction Box under the steering wheel but not sure if thats the fix. I’ve checked all fuses, it really sucks because summer is on its way and it gets really hot here 100+ F°. Let me know if yall find anything please!
I am having the exact same issue! Has anyone found a solution? My blower stops working, my air bag light comes on, and I see 2 dashes on the compass, all happening simultaneously. All issues are also randomly resolved simultaneously too. I have a 2008 Jeep Commander 2WD V8 4.7l
I’m thinking of the “Junction Block” its a fuse block that has many fuses and relays. I’m gonna replace it here soon within 2 months, i’ll keep you guys updated.
Having same issue on 2006 JC Limited. Going to replace the ignition switch since it is an inexpensive part.
It wasn’t the ignition switch for me. I replaced it and nothing happend.
