Yeah, anything you can do or learn to do will save you some major bucks. I bought the Goodyear Gatorback serp. belt at Autozone for around $30 and put it on our 2000 Sport in 10 minutes or less, wasn't to worn, but had over 80,000 miles on it so better safe than sorry. My wife got me the Jeep/Chrysler ASE service manual for the 2000 Cherokees, it has more information than I would ever need, but its nice to have. I have a Haynes repair manual (much cheaper) for my 1991 Dakota truck, it helps explain things as well, good investment if you don't have one already.
#1322 of 2589 Jeep 2000 weird noises Help!
May 19, 2004 (5:38 pm)
I have a 2000 cherokee sport with 77,800 miles
Recently had some weird noises start, First one is a loud screeching sound that comes and goes when driving, and for some strage reason it stops when I slow down, It is not my brakes I checked them, maybe a wheel bearing?
The other is a constant low rumbling coming from the engine compartment,this noise is their all the time, seems to be on the passenger side. Anyone have any ideas what these could be ?

Screeching could come from the serp. belt, how does it look? Loose or glazed? Rumble, early on had to have some sort of bushing in the transfer case replaced that caused a rumble. Was under warranty so I don't have any idea which one or where it is.

I did replace my serp belt about a month ago, goodyear gatorback, but the screech seemd to develop two weeks later.I did tighten the belt up the other day but it did not help screech came and lasted 20 seconds then stopped. Can it be an idler pulley?

#1326 of 2589 '93 Cherokee Sport
Jul 09, 2004 (9:31 pm)
A friend of mine has a '93 Cherokee Sport with 223k miles on it. He had to put in a new engine and ignition at around 210k. It's still going strong, with a recent new cd player installed and new liberator tires. Tranny is still very strong. Some problems that have arisen is the AC no longer functions, the driver's seat back broke, and when opening the driver door, it caught on the front fender panel and bent it in. This also bent the door downward, so even though the seals are excellent, it leaks during heavy rain and god forbid you take it through a carwash. I then turns into a driver wash. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to do to fix these issues and make this car as good as new? The drivers seat can be bent back forward, but if one leans on it even the slightest amount, it starts bends right back again. I'd have to say go to a junkyard and find a replacement on that one, but who knows, you Jeep guys may have some other ideas. Also, any ideas on how to fix the door and fender? The fender is pushed in quite a ways...and the door is noticably lower in front than in the back where it latches. Thanks for any input.
I personally don't own a Jeep, but I wish I did. Another friend of mine has an '01 Sport in that gorgeous and rare "Amber Fire" orange color. She hasn't any a single problem out of it in nearly 30k miles. More than I can say for the '99 Explorer I settled for. Oh well, to each his own!

Will the door open at all? Try it from the inside and the outside. This sounds like a problems related to child safety locks.

My 99 Cherokee will only go into 4 wheel low when the tranny is in neutral and the vehicle is stopped. The engine must be running.
#1330 of 2589 Interior Light Problem
by ray h
Aug 02, 2004 (9:28 am)
Last Friday I took my 99 Cherokee Limited to the gas station filled it up with gas closed the door and the interior lights stayed on. Drove home and the lights were still on. I checked all the doors, the hatch, tried locking and unlocking with the factory remote entry and by using the locking mechanisms on the door. All was to no avail. Took it to the local Jeep dealer. I waited 2 hours for them to look at it and the lights had gone out. Took the Jeep home and Saturday it did the same thing. Checked every fuse inside the vehicle and none are for the interior lights. Finally found a fuse under the hood that turns off the lights but also turns off the remote entry. That seems to reset the interior lights but they continue to get stuck on and I have to pull this fuse and start over. Since this happened I have noticed the lights don't dim when going out but just go off all at once. This vehicle had the "opera dimming" feature.
Does anyone out there know if there is a relay or switch for the dimmer under the hood, or anywhere else, or know the cause of this problem.
