#1465 of 2589 Wipers, radio, heater, turn signals don't work
Jun 14, 2005 (2:49 pm)
I have a 1994 Jeep cherokee, 142000 miles. Today, while driving from work I noticed my radio was not on. Then I tried the front wiper, and they didn't work. The heater/airconditioner would not come on, and no turn signals. When I got I home I turned off the vehicle and then restarted it. Now everything works at least for now. Is there a problem with my ignition switch? My brother is great with cars, and can likely fix the problem but he wants to me ask some questions before we go tearing it apart. Please help!

Hi, just curious if you changed out your radiator on your car. I just posted a message trying to find out if it is easy to replace the radiator and some basic instructions. Any help would be appreciated.

I have seen this same issue in the past. The problem occurs when the ECM is transitioning from open loop to closed loop. The bank one sensor one O2 sensor isn't ready for the transition. It will cause the fuel mixture to fall on its face. The issue won't throw a code because the error is too short. These older style fuel systems are slow in responding to inputs. Even if you watch the computers input on a scanner you won't see this going on. Sometimes causing a lean pop from the intake. Simply swapping the O2 sensor will rid you of this problem. Please don't ask how long it took to find this one.....

I have never flushed a radiator, but I recently installed a new one. The plug is on the passenger side. If you take the grill off you will see it. Oh, don't take it all the way out; just a few turns and the coolant should flow through the plug. If you take it all the way out, no big deal, you'll get it back in with a little patience.

I just replaced the radiator on my 94 Cherokee (in-line 6) and it is not difficult at all. I suggest the Haynes manual, it has pictures and I have found it to be very good for diagnoses and instruction. The job took me about 3 hours, and I am in no way a mechanic, just a girl with a nice socket set. Good Luck.

Wow thank's for the picture. I found the tube easily. It was not plugged in all the way. I will correct that as soon as a find a way to blow air into it. Although I think this will be a while, as my a/c is leaking freon. Yep I charged it, and 3 days later it is gone again

I am a dealer specializing in Cherokee's. We've had the same problem with my sons 96. We replaced the fuel pump last week at a cost of $98. This seems to have fixed the problem. The 96 is fairly easy to replace. You do not have to remove the tank on this year. You simply remove the cover and pump from the front side of the tank. If this does not solve the problem, the crank sensor will do the same. It is located on top of the bell housing and is easily replaced with two bolts. Part cost is about $68.

You could insert a length of soft plastic tubing inside the drain tube and blow into it. That may clear it. But if your drain tube was detached, you may need to go under the dash to make sure the tube is attached properly now. It seems strange to me that it would just come loose on it's own. If your A/C refrigerant leak is the evaporator coil, then the dash needs opened to repair/replace it. If that's the case, be sure to tell the service person that the tube may be detached so they can fix it then. Good luck
