#3592 of 5134 a different starting problem with 94 cherokee
Jan 31, 2007 (5:51 pm)
my son has a 1994 jeep grand cherokee 5.2, his first car. the other day he came in saying his jeep wouldnt start, and since he is a gear head i didnt contribute it to something dinky.
it acts like it wants to start, like watsonjeep's problem, except his does not run no matter what. it cranks, starts to fire, then immediately returns to cranking. the odd thing aobut this though, is once its cranking, it wants to start exactly like normal, but cant. so the crank time is consistant, and within 1 sec it dies. if you hold the key down and let it crank, it repeats over ad over. i have tried it with my foot to the floor. it WILL NOT START AND RUN. ever since yesterday we have been trying and the same thing happens. we did check the alarm system, and turned the key in the door, no luck.

I have the same issue. Mine is at the driver side. when I ran the diagnostics, it gave error code 54 54 (Left temperature door travel too large)
Any clue how expensive repair this is ?

Treat it like a screwed up computer. Disconnect the battery, turn the lights on to drain any remaining juice in the system, and then hook it back up. Make sure your battery connections are spotless. This may not do it, but it worked for me once and it don't cost nothing but a few minutes of your time.

You probably have a broken blender door.

My 99 gcl has no defrost or heat. It satrted on the passenger side the over the summer te drivers side went. I took it to a dealer and for 1500 the said they could fix it. Apparently the blend air door and the a/c temp sensor motors have gone bad. Each motor cost about 90 dollars. I took my dash apart and replaced the motors myself but I still have no heat!! I'm not sure what to do now. I have a 12 volt heater rigged up for the mean time. hopefully it doesnt get much colder

Black boxes are certainly not my area of expertise. But it seems as since you can restart over and over again before it shuts down that you have: Fuel pressure,spark, air and they are all coming together properly for at least a second. It just sounds like something (computer?)is cutting the spark to shut it down that quickly.
#3599 of 5134 05 JGC Limited Ticking
Feb 03, 2007 (10:12 pm)
I have already posted this question before but I wanted to see if anyone else was having this problem as well. I have an 05 JGC Limited with a 5.7 hemi and during a mild or "regular" acceleration i am hearing a ticking from the front drivers side of the vehicle. This is most noticeable when accelerating next to a wall because the noise resonates off of it. I have had it in and out of the dealership several times for this problem. It sounds like an exhaust leak but the dealership has assured me that they have pressure checked the entire exhaust and there are no leaks. Can anyone with the hemi engine check this and let me know if there is does the same. Also if anyone has any information on this i would appreciate it if they could let me know.

I do believe that the sound that your hearing is the air pump attached to the fender wall and at times it can get very loud as I had mine checked on my 04 JGC for the same noise and I also hear it on my Hemi but after the explenation from the last time I haven't bothered this time.
Not sure if this is what your problem is but thought I'd give you my info.. Best of Luck.
