i currently have the same problem with the quadratrac 2 transfer case, on my 02 grand cherokee, i have already replaced the drivers wheel bearing and axle, at seperate times, due to this problem, i think it should be a dealer problem. i would now never suggest anyone ever buy a jeep from now on. i work on newer vehicles everyday and never knew of the problems with a jeep until i owned one. i thought they were good. too bad, please help with any solutions to my problem. of course this is not the only problem with the truck. the motor ticks at idle too, imagine that. any answers?

I have a 1988 Jeep Cherokee that does that too! Seems the idle is not high enough. I have been told that the idle adjusts automatically, can't set it like other cars.I know I need an accelerator/throttle cable, and hope when that is replaced it will fix the problem. Have you checked yours? I should know more early next week. I believe mine has to be in park to start back up, does not work in neutral, but not for sure. Another thing that's happening is sometimes it doesn't get fire to start........can't get it to happen when it's at the garage, so they can check it then! AWK!

My 89 Cherokee 4.0 liter intermittently dies or won't start after short trips. I've replaced the alternator, gas filter, wires, and distributor cap and can't seem to locate the problem. It's like possessed! It is getting gas so there seems to be some sort of problem with the spark?

I actually had the same problem! I have a 2000 JGC and was driving tonight, heard an explosion, got out to look and saw my car was pouring out fluid. when i looked under the hood, i saw pieces everywhere. all i could figure was a fan exploded and took out everything in its path including my radiator. i am going to contact jeep tomorrow. let me know if you have heard anything.

I have the same problem. Car will crank but takes about a minute to start. This is the killer...If I rock the car and turn the car to the on position, I can hear the fuel pump for a sec or two and the car will start perfectly and will re-start after running for 15-20 minutes. I live in NJ and noticed the problem when the temp dropped below 60 degrees. Seem similar to your problem?

I'm having the identical problem. To add to it when I rock the car, in most instances, will trigger turning on the fuel pump when the ignition is in the on position. I thought it may be the relay. Any progress on your end?

my nightmare started after my stereo was stolen, my "friend" installed a new one, and tried to rewire for the speakers.Yes, I know this wasn't the best idea, however FIVE shops have not been able to determine cause. My driver side windows work 99% of time, power lock on driver only. Occaisionally passenger windows will work, but only until the next time you turn off the car.Once a month the entire instrument panel will not work , and will come back at it's convenience, usually after an hour of being left alone. Funny thing is, the radio always works, and the windows and locks are good, just not getting power. WHAT IT ISN'T: master switch, relays, wiring (most has been replaced in doors). What the heck can I do? any help very appreciated!! ps. I just read about the hood light, will check. I do know there is a ground behind the radio, and all my fuses are good (BOTH fuse panels)

Remove the idle air control sensor, and clean the tip of it, and clean the inside where it came from on the throttle body. Varnish and such makes this sensor stick, and gives the ecm a faulty reading, resulting in stalls.
hope this helps you.
P.S you may have to replace the idle air control sensor. good luck m8.

I would suggest that you take the vehicle in to a dealership to have the transmission put onto a scope to check all the sensors(20+ of them). While they have the vehicle there, have them change the fiter, and adjust the bands,(forward and reverse); as these bands can be adjusted manually.
hope this helps you m8.
