#3394 of 5134 Blower Motor Runs Even With Key Out???
Oct 11, 2006 (3:01 pm)
My Dad has a 94 Grand Cherokee Ltd. 318CI or 5.2L. He bought it brand new, has 51,000 miles. He has drove Jeeps since 1946, owned since 1948. I get a GM discount of $8,000. to $12,000. off sticker, he still drives & owns only JEEPS!! Today he went to the store, turned the ignition key off, and the blower motor kept running like on slow speed. He took the key out, moved the climate switches, still keeps running on slow speed. He left it run, went and got his caulk and came home. Again, when he took the key out the blower motor keeps running. He removed the neg. battery cable and killed it till I got home. I checked and it did the same for me but, in the climate control on the right side where the Temp (inside) and * for A/C on, and fresh air or recirculate is. A "Er" pop's on for about 3 seconds, and goes out. Remember, in 1999 Jeep "Recalled" GC's to replace the A/C's & Heaters. We should not have any "Error" in the climate control, but what did they put in? A 94,95,96,97,98,or 99??? We don't know, I called our Dealer, my cousin work's there, not repairing, RAT'S, but he did ask his buddy's and there at a blank??? Anybody else have this happen, or know what to do? This is my first posting here, so far I like! I belong to a couple of others for my stuff, your post's here seem quite nice & helpfull. But I have seen a couple of things that have got to me. A lot of American bashing, like it's broke you should have bought Foreign!! That don't go on the other forum's, there kicked off. This message is for Jeeps & Jeep people!!! And beings winter will be here in Ohio this coming weekend, when I pull a Foreign 4x4 out of the ditch or snowbank, I charge them DOUBLE, helps out on the fuel for the 318's & 360's Jeep People!! Have Fun In The Snow & Sand & Mud Guy's & Gal's!!!

Check to see if they have a current "Recall" on Tail-Lights. Next find out if your bulbs is mounted into a "Circuit Board", I can't remember if the 01's are or not. You might stop at a Boneyard and look at one thats out, see if it has a Board! GM checked my 03 Trailblazer Tail-Lights, and they was O.K.!! But some people had trouble, a month later I had to take mine in for replacement Via a "Recall", and mine was O.K.

Car companies went international years ago and GM/Ford sell a lot of cars around the world. Last I looked, some German company even purchased Chrysler.

I had the exact same problem with my 01 GC a few months ago. After replacing the socket with no luck, took it to dealer. It was the circuit board.
#3399 of 5134 Headlights & Lock malfunctions 01 Grd Cherokee
Oct 12, 2006 (1:29 pm)
I have an 01 Grand Cherokee. After parking and exiting car, setting alarm/locks etc., the lights will flash on and off by themselves sporadically. Sometimes right on and off, sometimes staying on for 20 seconds or so. You can also hear the locks click (like they are unlocking and relocking). Took to dealer, they have had it for two days and now want me to come and get it becasue they can't find anything wrong. I'm not imagining this and I'm not the only one who has seen it happen. Has been going on about 3 weeks now. Anyone had anything similar? Any ideas?

Thanks for the help. Can you tell me a little about the circuit board you replaced? Where is it located on the car and do you have the part # of the replacement board?

Sure, just happen to have the receipt on me. Receipt indicates that they replaced the entire light assembly. It looks like there were two parts: #5101897AB "Lamp"; and #55156845AA "Gap Hider".
Hope this works for you. I haven't had any problems with it since. I've been warned to watch for the other side going out in the future. Hope not but if it does at least it won't take 3 months to figure out this time.

Not yet.. I plan to work on it later today.
(Italicized indicates an absolute must change for me)
Fuel pump module (complete with sending unit)
Throttle position sensor
By monitoring the output voltage from this sensor, the PCM can determine fuel delivery based on throttle valve angle (driver demand). A broken or loose sensor can cause intermittent bursts of fuel from the injectors and an unstable idle because the PCM thinks the throttle is moving.
Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor
Monitors the intake manifold pressure changes resulting from changes made in engine load and speed and converts the information into a voltage output. The PCM uses the sensor to control fuel delivery and ignition timing.
The PCM uses this sensor to control the engine air/fuel ratio. A bad sensor can effect fuel economy, and engine performance.
After looking in my aftermarket repair manual specifically for JGC '93-'04 I determined that the specific code P0121 for Jeep is (TPS voltage does not agree with MAP, TPS signal does not correlate to MAP sensor) This being the case if you look at my descriptions of what the PCM uses each of those sensors for this may have just been reduced to a no brainer for me! (If it doesn't work then it's back to the drawing board) I'll let you know how it goes.
