I've had the same poltergeist problems three times with my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, (once in Nashville, TN, in 11/05, once in Oxford, MS, in 9/06, and once in Memphis, TN, in 10/06). Possibly just coincidental, but all Poltergeist scenarios occurred during major rainstorms. Also, after the first poltergeist problem in 11/05, I cleaned corrosion from the battery connectors with a brush and had no problems for nearly a year.
I thought possibly the corrosion on the battery cables and battery connectors combined with the increased moisture might be causing the problem. I have since replaced the battery cables (about $57) and the battery (about $79) and have had no more poltergeist problems. But it's difficult to know conclusively that the problem has been solved.

Hi guys. I'm new to the forum. I've got a slight problem with my recently purchased 2004 Grand Cherokee Laredo. No matter how I adjust the AC/Heating controls, I can't get any air out of the front vents (the ones on the dash). All the air just comes out of the vent up against the windshield. Any ideas?

a buddy of mine owns a 93 grand cherokee and recently he over heated it. the upper radiator hase blew off blowing coolant every where. now for some reason the jeep will only start and stay running for a few seconds? is there some kind of switch or some thing that might have tripped?

Probably a vacuum leak somewhere.

#3480 of 5134 2002 Jeep Front and Rear Differentials problems
Nov 27, 2006 (11:13 am)
I have a '02 JGC Overland and before the warranty was expired I had been complaining about the noises when you turn tight corners (a chittering in the steering). I'd take it to the dealership and it wouldn't do it there. Amazingly when the warranty was up it dawned on them it was the front and rear differentials needed servicing. Twice. It still hasn't solved the problem. Now they are saying the only thing left to do is start replacing parts. My other problem is that the check engine light is on constantly no matter how many times you mess with the gas cap (who's brilliant idea was that anyway?) I'm on my fourth gas cap so I'm ignoring the light since the dealership keeps blaming it on the gas cap. Anyone else had these problems?

Is the ticking sound supposed to be that loud? When i'm mildly accelerating on the street it doesn't seem that bad but when i'm up against a wall it is extremely loud. When i brought it back into the dealer after they replaced the manifold they told me it was normal. I tried to get a hold of someone i engineering at chrysler but they would only let me talk to a service rep. chrism1987 could you find out through the dealership why they make that noise, is it resonating in the y-pipe or something else. The noise is driving me crazy, its all i hear now when i'm driving it and its embarssing that 2005 jeep sounds like an 85 chevy with and exhaust leak.

I had a similar problem on a 1996 Cherokee. Look behind the battery and see if you have a break in a vacuum line. If you patch it with a similar piece of hose your vent controls will work again.
