for what it is worth I have had this speaker problem in the drivers door twice. The first time it happened I went to the dealer under warranty and the mechanic seemed to know what it was before he looked at it. he said to the service writer " I'll bet its that harness problem we have on cherokee's" and fixed it in 20 mins...ditto for the second time. My speaker also cut in and out when openeing and closing the door as yours did. recently I replaced my front speakers myself and noticed wire had been spliced in.....maybe the factory harness' is to short causing problems?

Prior to placing a shock absorber on the front axle and then tightening the frame bolts did the shop ever mention tie rods or u joints or any other areas that could be the cause?

I don't have the solution, but my 95 Cherokee has the same problem on the rear passenger doors only. I also find that the problem seems to get worse in cold weather.

No I can't say that the shops mentioned any of those items. Nor have I had to have any of them replaced up until a year ago (one tie rod end) which is four years after the frame bolts were tightened. On other forums I've seen those items mentioned but none that offered a concrete answer.

I know what your saying. I live in Minnesota so in the winter you can forget about it. This symptom leads me to believe that the (solenoids?) are either dirty or gummed up which could cause them to become stiffer in cold temperatures. But why then does the drivers door work just fine? It is the most commonly used door and lock so maybe it's not the solenoids maybe it's the whole linkage system that needs some grease. HMMM
Thanks for the response.

I live in Minnesota too. Funny. Oh well, at least we've got another 3 months before winter sets in again. Maybe one of these days I'll take apart one of the rear doors and see if I can figure if out. If I do I'll be sure to post it here.

I had the same problem with my 1997 Jeep driver door speaker. It seems the connection is lost between the rubber boot between the door and the speaker. I put a new wire from that location to the door and corrected the problem.

#2035 of 2589 Problems with Fuel System on Jeep '98 Classic Limited

For the last year I have been dealing with an ongoing problem with my above referenced vehicle. I am traveling down the road or freeway and suddenly the car will act like it might cut off, engine starts sputtering, and the check engine light comes on. The car starts this violent jerking like it might cut out at any time. Sometimes the engine feels like it is racing. Frequently when I come to a stop it will just die and I have to put in Park and start again. This problem is very intermittent. I can go weeks with the car acting just fine. I have had this car in the shop for the same problem probably close to 10 times and noone can seem to find the problem. The dianostics never seem to pinpoint the exact problem. Just within the last month the diagnostic revealed a factory upgrade re-flash of the computer software was needed. I took it to a dealer and had the upgrade performed and less than 2 weeks later, the car started the same difficulty. It really feels like perhaps the computer is not recognizing I am giving the car fuel or it thinks it is not getting enough fuel. Anyone else experience this difficulty?
