#2105 of 5143 1993 Grand Cherokee Relay Problems
Oct 22, 2005 (10:21 pm)
Okay this is my first post let's see if I can make this make sense. I have a 1993 4.0l Jeep Grand Cherokee. For the last few weeks it has been slowly getting harder and harder to start and then a couple of days ago it simply wouldn't. I noticed the battery terminals where corroded so i took them off and cleaned them. This is were i discovered the problem. If I leave the key on and place the ground terminal on I don't get a clicking sound ( i believe it to be the relays) If i place the wire off and on a few times I finally get the clicks, when i get the clicks it starts first crank everytime. What do i need to do to get the clicks everytime and a why would it only happen after i replace the terminals a few times? I am so furstrated at this point. Thanks
#2106 of 5143 97 Jeep Cherokee AC Problems, not blowing
Oct 23, 2005 (5:42 am)
I have a 97 Jeep Cherokee SE 4WD, and the ac/heat had cut out for a few weeks, and would work if you messed with it some. Then it just worked great for like 8 months, but now it wont blow at all. You can turn the ac on, and hear the compressor click on, but it does not blow. Is this some kind of sending unit problem? What could it be? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I would try replacing the cable you are taking on and off. It is possible there is a break in it internally keeping you from getting a good connection every time. This may not be the problem, but it is a inexpensive, easy to try possibility.

Oct 23, 2005 (6:57 am)
i've got a jgc ltd (28k pkg) that was purchased new in '01. i had the problem with my stock rotors warping every 12-15k miles. at around 50k miles i switched to slotted aftermarket rotors and haven't had a single problem since. the brand i bought are by powerslot and at the time they were (i think) $80/ea. i only did the fronts and while i was at it i changed the pads to ceramic ones and i also used the anti-squeak goo. it's been a while since i did any research on rotors, but if i recall correctly the C/D starts benefiting only with extreme use. personally i've had zero problems with my slotted-only rotors.
good luck with your search
#2109 of 5143 2004 JGC water leak
Oct 24, 2005 (9:03 am)
I have a 2004 JGC Overland and so far I love it. I seem to have a water leak coming onto the driverís side floor well. It's a lot of water. The dealer has looked at it with no solution. They will be calling in "the water doctor" next. I'm nervous. Any ideas or suggestions? I pulled up the carpet myself as well to look for myself.

I have a 98 JGC, 6 cy. w/83,000 miles. I've only had it for a couple months now and I have a few questions that hopefully someone can answer. The first question deals with some of the optional items that can be turned on. In the manual it says that options such as the lights turn on when the wipers are on and horn beeps when the doors locks can be turned on by authorized dealers. Is there a way for me to manually doing this without going to a dealer and having to pay them?
My other question deals with the 4wd system (select trac). This is my first vehicle I have owned that has 4wd. I'm not too familiar with how to operate the whole system. When shifting from 2wd to 4 full time do I have to have the transmission in neutral? How about when I shift from 4 fulltime back to 2wd? I don't want to goof around with it until I now what I'm doing. Thanks for any help.

Oct 24, 2005 (2:50 pm)
I have a '95 vI GCL and had the exact same problem. I have found it cheaper to check the oil level periodically and add the quart that it may be low over time (as well as keeping up on the regular oil changes) due to the leaks, than replace the seal and other various oil leaks it has. Although I'm not the first owner of this vehicle, it was broken in with Synthetic Blend oil and I'm afraid to switch to regular oil at this point!
#2112 of 5143 '95 JGCL V8 Traney Slipping out of 1st Gear
Oct 24, 2005 (2:53 pm)
I have a '95 JGCL V8, 150,000 miles with a rebuilt traney in it already. I'm noticing now since the weather is getting colder here in the northeast, if the car isn't sufficiently warmed up (as opposed to just jumping in and taking off as you can in the warmer weather), the traney will slip when I come to my first full stop, and take a few seconds to go back into first gear. Has anyone out there experienced this problem and have any solutions as to what it may be? Thanks!

In regards to the power window problem, I started having the sometimes work/sometimes not problems back this summer when finally, they stopped working altogether. Thank goodness they were stuck up instead of down as it rained that whole week. It turned out to be 2 bad wires in the wire bundle which is located in the driver's side door (large hose-like apparatus). It cost me around $150 to have it taken care of. I thought it was the masterswitch initially too, but it wasn't.

Make sure that you have enough fluid in the tranny. Also make sure that it is the correct fluid. Colder temps can make a tranny act differently, especially when the tranny hasn't had time to warm up . I'd suggest a complete flush and refill at an authorized place. I took my '98 5.9 Limited to the dealer when I was having the same problems(I too live in the Northeast-Maine) for the flush and never had another problem with it. It's been a while, but I believe the cost was $189.00 plus tax. Well worth it versus paying $2k for a new tranny. Good Luck.
