#1739 of 5143 1998 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, Check Engine Light

I am new to this site. I am experiencing a problem with my Check Engine Light and have read every post regarding it. If anyone can give advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee (JGC) Limited
I haven't used my Jeep in 3 weeks. I started it up and door it for a drive to the gas station. Initially, I could not get out of first gear and assumed I must have a transmission problem. I let the Jeep sit and tried again. Now the gears seem to be shifting smoothly. The Check Engine Light is still on.
Does it take long to go away if the problem is fixed?
What are all these codes that people are talking about? How do I get them?
Why else would this light go on?

I did drill a hole in this today and water started shooting out at me. I blew it out with my air gun and it frains good now. To seal the hole I used a screw that had a shank smaller than the hole diameter but with a head larger than the hole. I put silicone all over the screw and poped it in there and wa-la it sealed.

Please help. My 2000 JGC Ltd 4.7 when inserting the key in ignition, the gauges turn clockwise counterclockwise clockwise until key is taken out. Put a Sears battery charger on try to start the gauges act normal but still no start. I do get a clicking noise at the starter. With out the battery charger and after attempting to start I get nothing except the crazy gauge movements. Then I hear this rapid ticking noise down by the fuse box, but not when the battery charger is engaged. The battery is a Mopar battery that was installed 4 years ago. Could it be that the battery has lost its amperage and still read 13.5volts.
Anyone have any ideas before I buy a new battery and starter.

Definitely try cleaning the battery terminals first. Corrosion on the terminals could cause those symptoms. Do a search on "battery" on this thread and you'll come up with some other old messages.
#1743 of 5143 A/C / Haeter fan (blower) fails on 2001 JGC
Aug 05, 2005 (10:26 am)
I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Recently the heater - A/C fan (or blower) quit working. Occasionally, it will kick on for 4-5 minutes, the quit again. The jeep has the automatic dual zone Heat / A/C, and the fan doesn't work in any mode. (Auto, A/C on Manual, Heater on Manual, Fan only). The fuse looked good, but I replaced it anyway. I'll probably end up taking it to the dealer, but since I don't have a clue, I'd like some hints as to possible causes. I read in another post that the blower motor resistor (whatever that is) is know to fail on another, older, Jeep model. Anyone know if that problem continues in the JGC?
#1744 of 5143 Heavy Wind Noise
Aug 05, 2005 (1:16 pm)
Would like to learn...
Why is it that most Jeeps have a very heavy wind noise at higher speeds but then some are real quiet. For example two '04's, same body style, why would one be quiet and the other be loud?

Well, the Jeep is still in the shop. They are gonna do a fuel system cleaning, throttle body, fuel injection. While they were doing that the fuel line broke. They said they are gonna pay because they did it. It should be ready by Tuesday. It'll take that long because the part is not in. PLUS, they said they had it running with the a/c on and it was fine. So, I'm all ready for on Tuesday after I pick it up if it does the same thing I will turn right around, get one of the techs and take him for a ride and show him exactly what it is doing.

My Jeep has a problem with the chime/buzzer. There are times when I pull out my key the buzzer comes on and will not shut off until I put the key back in or un hook the battery cable. The lights are off so this should not be doing it. Could someone tell me which module is the chime/buzzer module.

Looking for help on 05 5.7 Liter JGC. When I drive at altitude (7000-8000ft) a gasoline/natural gas type smell floods the passenger compartment each time I turn off engine. Seems to emanate from A/C vents. Smell dissipates quickly but it's very unnerving. No problems at home elevation (1700ft), dealer can't find any problems, no codes, pressure tested fueling system, no exhaust leaks, etc. Short of taking mechanic along on vacation I can't duplicate for them. Any ideas? Am wondering if it's a function of cylinder deactivation system. Also, anyone find a way to improve the sound system in this car? My 97 JGC had far better fidelity.
