Welcome to Edmunds - you're in the right discussion. People tend to skip over posts in ALL CAPS since they can be hard to read, so keep that in mind as you post.

#2724 of 5143 '99 JGC still overheating
Mar 15, 2006 (5:47 pm)
replaced relay twice and only temporarily fixed the problem. Replaced Coolant Temp Sensor and Electric fan and fixed the overheating. Driving slow with A/C on last summer sent the gauge back up. Help! Where do I go from here??? Wire shorting out?

#2726 of 5143 94 jgc front differential
Mar 16, 2006 (11:56 am)
About a year ago I had to replace the front differential in my 94 jgc. Since then I have had a serious vibration at speeds above 40mph. Upon deceleration it gets worse. Slight steering inputs will cause it to go away for just a second and then it comes back. Any ideas on what this could be?
#2727 of 5143 97 JGC battery guage
Mar 16, 2006 (3:37 pm)
My 97 grand Cherokee recently began doing a strange thing. From time to time the battery voltage gauge will begin to drop off and then the check gauges light comes on. As soon as I turn off all acssesories, blower, lights etc the gauge comes right back up. This vehicle has 100000 miles, runs great, it has the 4.0 liter six. I have cleaned the battery terminals and had the charging system checked. Anyone have any ideas?
#2728 of 5143 2005 Grand Cherokee heater problem
Mar 16, 2006 (7:35 pm)
My 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee blows hot air out of the 2 center defrost vents when I set the control knob on floor only. The Jeep dealer said that was normal, however if you turn the floor heater on high, crack the window a little, there is enough hot air coming on your face that you feel like you're in a convertible. Any comments?? Thanks...

Had the same problem in a 2002 Grand Cherokee that we just purchased from a private party. Contacted Chrysler and told them this is my second Cherokee, and that I was new about the technical service bulletin. Asked if they would help out with correcting the problem (2002, 35,000miles, and no warranty). They asked me to pay the first $150 and they took care of the rest (dealer est. $1,100). I couldn't be happier, kudos to Chrysler for stepping up and taking care of the problem.
#2730 of 5143 My 95 Jeep GCL I just purchased
Mar 17, 2006 (4:32 pm)
HI, I am new to this forum. I just recently bought a 95 jeep GC. I love this thing but quickly found a bunch of problems that have been discussed here. I took her to my local jeep dealer to find out they want to charge me over 4,000, bux to fix everything. like: rear needs to be rebuilt, viscous cup needs to be replaced, steering box is leaking, motor mounts are bad, and needs a trailing arm. now like i said i love this thing, and i'm not in a situation to buy another vehicle at this time, i had decided to list it for sale again, but then out of the blue i decided to keep her. i can't let go of it. years ago i had a 79 cherokee. i loved that old chugger. never had problems with it. but with all the things with this jeep, i don't know if i want to buy another.but for now i'm gonna start replacing things lil by lil, used parts of course, my goals are to lift this thing and make her a good 4x4. i have some friends that are jeep buffs and they are trying to help me get her straightened out. thank god for jeep buffs. if anyone can give me a moral boost or some good info please feel free to do so, i would greatly appreciate it. thanks and all for now.

I just bought a 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited it did not have the radio in it! I was told by the previous owner that the radio is the "brain" of the whole JGCL. There is some kind of on board PC that can tell you what is up with your Jeep (low tiers, needs oil change, ect)built in to it. Is this true? I bought a used Radio for it and hooked it up and got nothing no light on radio nothing. Radio is a cool thing to have but getting out there to play is more Important. "Oil leak" I read that the area where the oil filter meets the block will warp and cause this in the 5.2 (318) Dodges if true how do I deal with that. Any or all help would be nice thank you.
