#3006 of 5134 Passenger Door Window Came Loose 1998
Jun 08, 2006 (11:39 am)
The passenger door window came lose on the front end.
It still goes up and down with power switch but when it goes down, the front part of window pane falls way down making the window crooked. It is fine right now as long as I keep it all the way up.
My question is , is it easy to pull the door panel off and fix myself? I would hate to guess how much this would cost to have fixed. It seems like it should simple but I haven't tried to pull the door panel off yet. So I don't even know how easy that is yet.
#3007 of 5134 1995 4.0L Grand Cherokee Error Code 41
Jun 09, 2006 (9:09 am)
95 Grand Cherokee Error Code 41 received via the dashboard display - (Error Code 41 - An open or shorted condition in the generator field control circuit) - What exactly does this error mean? The Alternator & Battery have recently been replaced, the connections to both were checked/cleaned, wires to relay block and grounds were mostly checked - The battery was old and needed to be replaced(weak)/ The car wasnt run much since the Fall and needed a jump start to start. The Alternator gave the impression it wasnt charging properly tested as such with the handheld and was replaced as well. After replacing both, we get an error code 41 and the dashboard AMP Meter goes to DRAIN/wont charge. One suggestion from a Jeep dealer was that the ECM may have been on its way out and now died a little further. Are there any other options to check? How can you check the ECM? (I only have a VoltOhm Meter handy) - Thanks in Advance - John

Sounds like it's in the wiring or socket. I have a 2000 GCL and the same taillight had the same problem as yours, but I could get the bulb from the other taillight to work just fine. If the actual socket looks bad, try cleaning it and then try again. If this doesn't work, use a test light to find out if there's any power to the socket while the lights are turned on. If not, find the wire in the socket that controls it and see if you have power there. If not, find out where that wire begins and start testing. If it does have power, replace your socket.
#3009 of 5134 water from where
Jun 11, 2006 (8:06 am)
Have a 2004 jeep grand cherokee ltd. Its been fine save for one problem. Last Jan after a heavy rain I found a puddle inside under in front of driver seat. Headliner was also wet. Checked around windshield. Saw an opening where roof railing goes under windshield molding. Caulked it and dealer did same and cleaned drains. Haven't gotten as much water and headliner dry since. But after heavy rain still wet down there. Dealer then tightened a gromit on fire wall. Still water coming from some location. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Jun 11, 2006 (4:06 pm)
I also have the same problem w/the surging and have no problem with the dealer or factory engineer having the problem happening to them and now they are trying to tell me that it is a "NORMAL" happening with the torque converter (B. S.) - - in other words , what they are saying is that there is a problem , but they don't have a clue how to fix it , so there is no problem to them
#3011 of 5134 Re: "Trail Rated" Jeep Laredo - Disappointing [blkhemi]

In my 25 years of off-road driving, the most important factors are good tires, adequate ground clearance, and skid plates on four vital areas. If your vehicle is missing one of these, you ability to make it home is in doubt. The jeep I rented didn't have adequate skid plates. Case closed!
I was told by a Nissan salesman that the traction control included the ability to pull out with only one wheel turning.
I said, "thanks, but don't plan to get into that kind of situation". - 81 Trekker
P.S. Sorry about the delay in my reply. Something reminded me to review that BS "Jeep Trail Rated" label today.

Your salesman just wanted to get you to drag that piece of crap off of the lot. Traction control on the Nissan will not enable it to pull out with only one will. JGC's that are Vari-Lok axle equipped can send 100% of the engines power to one single wheel. No one has perfected this. CASE CLOSED.
#3013 of 5134 I NEED HELP????????
Jun 12, 2006 (4:46 pm)
I'm usually a jack of all trades when it comes to Jeeps. But I just recently started back driving my '01 JGC Laredo 4.0 and just found out today(in 98 degree heat mind you) that my cooling fan isn't coming on. I put a new fan motor on last year, so I'm pretty sure it's not this one this time. I need to know where is the relay for it. Someone said in the fender and I'll have to remove the front bumper, headlight, and battery. I'm at a loss. Please help.
BTW: First relay in 105k miles. I must've gotten one of the best WJ's made as this truck has been very little problematic.

Hello!! I have an '02 Cherokee Limited, and am looking for someone who has the same. I do not have my owner's manual with me, and was wondering if someone who has access to one could tell me the recommended maintenance for 60,000 miles (Schedule B) ? I would appreciate it!
