#2309 of 5143 90 jeep 4 cylinder Fuel Pump Relay
Dec 09, 2005 (10:29 am)
My son has a 1990 jeep cherokee with a 4 cylinder. When he first starts the vehicle it runs very rough then after it warms up a bit will run fine. When he shuts it off and tries to restart it (warm start) sometimes he has to wait before it will start. It has died on him just like it was shut off while driving it a couple of times. I told him to try replacing the Fuel Pump relay but he doesn't know which relay it is. Does anyone know which relay is for the fuel pump

i had the same problem with my 95 jgc. i had to take the liner off and attach a nut to the mechanism. it had slipped off so it wasn't pulling right when i pulled on the handle.

I am making notes here if I do mine again at 120,000 miles. My dealer cornered me to do it at 60,000 and with a coupon got that and transaxle (2nd time) done for $180. But your idea is good now that my Jeep Laredo I6 goes out of extended warranty Dec 21, she is 5 years old ! Stuff like this will get me to visit my small town mechanic who is a friend and charges about 1/3 dealer labor rate plus I can buy my own parts. Just hope nothing major goes wrong ... I maybe paid for the $800 the extended major coverage warranty cost me (ie, it was not just engine/drivetrain warr, maxcare?) with a few things the past 2 years after the 3/36 ran out, but in general it's been a pretty good vehicle to us, I'd rate quality a B-. Ask me in 2 more yrs!

What exactly is the brake light switch? Where do I find it? I have a 2000 Jeep GC that currently has no brake lights and I can't find that any of the fuses are blown. I am wondering what else it could be.
#2314 of 5143 Security Engages not allowing jeep to start
Dec 10, 2005 (8:57 am)
Periodically this summer my 1995 Grand Cherokee would engage the security system. I would use the key in the tailgate to disengage the devise and drive on. Now I am in Baton Rouge on hurricane assignment and my wife is calling me telling me the Jeep is now constantly engaging the security system not allowing her to start the vehicle. While I know the Jeep misses me as much as my wife I am perplexed as to why the security engages. Is there an override? Has anyone else dealt with this problem and I am not referring to a mad spouse. The Jeep has almost 200,000 miles on it and has enjoyed the shelter of a garage, regular maintenance, etc. Any advice would be appreciated, Thank you.

The "blend door problem" that many '01 LTD owners are experiencing is caused by the age of the parts. The blend doors on this model are made of plastic. Therefore, when you use the heater they heat up extremely fast, and once the heat is turned off cool down at a fast rate too. Moreover, since the parts are plastic and have fast heating/cooling rates the parts continue to expand over time and remain expanded-- wear and tear.

You've got the tailights out when brakes applied problem. They usually are on with headlights but go out when brake pedal pushed. The problem is the circuitry for the taillights, which calls for new ones to be installed because at the current time there is no fix for the circuit when it goes out. I had the same problem on my '02 Overland.
I repeatedly changed out the bulb sockets but that only worked for a day. The lights are about $150 a pop at the dealer. I went to eBAY and got some clear taillights $68 for the set and they're better than OEM models because the internals are built better.

Most likely, your multi-function switch is the cause of the problem. This is the switch on the side of the steering column that turns the headlights on and off. You can have it replaced at a dealership, or you can just stop leaving the 'auto' feature on.
