I was just wondering if you figured out your problem yet. I have a 95' JGC limited V8 5.2L and mine will stall at stop signs and lights and now just recently lost all acceleration power. AutoZone said O2 sensor and cam shaft pos. sensor then referred me to a mechanic. He told me crank shaft pos. sensor but wasn't able to fix it for whatever reason. I think he just wanted an easy 1/2 hour diagnostic fee. I now have an appt. at the local dealer to try and solve the problem which I know will be expensive but I need my vehicle but am getting sick of the problems. Any info. will be appreciated.

I'm having the exact same problem with my 99 JGCL. I also have the dual climate control and the hot air blowing out on the 2 passengar side vents. I took it to a repair shop and they said a rodent was stuck in it...which doesn't make sense to me. I really don't think that is the issue.
If you find out anything...PLEASE let me know what you hear.

Your problem (speaking from personal experience with my JGCL 02) is probably a broken "door" that is built into the A/C system which "opens" and "closes" to circulate the hot air from around the engine or to divert it away (for cold air), respectively. The usual fix requires pulling the dashboard to get to the needed spot. That's where the mechanic fee rises quickly. Good luck.

Funny that a guy from Alaska recommends frozen rotors.
Welcome to Edmunds!

Hi! I recently purchased a 2005 JGC, and have had to call Chrysler Roadside Assistance twice in the last 2 weeks for a jump start. In both cases, my keyless entry did not respond, nor did turning the key in the ignition. No response what-so-ever. Roadside Assistance was quick to assist, and get me back on the road, however, both employees tell me dead batteries within the Jeep Cherokee is not a new problem.....has anyone else heard this, or experienced a similar problem? My JGC was in the Service Department all day today, and multiple tests were ran, but no determiniation was made. Any feedback would be appreciated. THANKS! NUJGC57

Well, I guess my problems started a little later than others. I have a JGC 1999, V6 with 85000 miles and compared to my other Jeep that I loved, this is a piece of crap. Major problem is the differential problem that many of you speak to, I took it in for repair becuase of the same noise, rumbling from the rear which has now progressed to a wooshing sound with accleration. Yesterday I was told that the rear differential axles were shot so they were replaced for $790, but when I picked the Jeep up it was making the same sound as when I took it in, come to find out that I need a pinion seal and that the right front axle boot is torn, one of the techs assured me that the car was safe to drive from Florida back to Maryland, but the Jeep expert says I stand less than a 50percent chance of making it home all in all I 'm looking at another $1500.
Since the differential and axle issues are so common has DC taken any responsiblity,
I can't wait to get rid of this thing.

This does not look good for me. My jeep is making the same wooshing sound with accleration. I take it to the dealer on Thursday for there great opinion and how much money they think they can take from me. I was hoping for something simple, but I am not going to hold my breath from what you have had done.
