Removing the battery ground and replacing it can reset the BCM (body control module) which is the computer that controls the body electrical functions on your vehicle. They were probably trying to save you some money as local Chrysler dealer charges $76/hour labor, and removing the ground is easy on your own. If it continues to act up you may have a defective BCM.
