i just recently started having problems with my tail light. i went to the auto parts store and after replacing the Bulb, they told me it might be the circuit board. or i may need to replace the whole tail light. i've tried to find a circuit board on the internet but i cant. it has 4 tabs on the circuit board so it must come off. how may i fix the problewm before spending lots of $$$ . please help Thanks

befor i would replace the tail light i would go to the jeep dealer and buy the bulb holders as the heat from the bulb makes the contacts weak and then they dont make contact the bull holders rae bout 5or 6 bucks cheaper than tail light assmbly

i agree wit tugabug,try th cheaper options first,and yea,the heat-especially break light bulbs,can melt those plastic sockets..try bending the tabs,so they'll contact the bulb better...get a simple"light up" circut tester,and see if there's power back there--before buying circut boards..,and ALWAYS use the non-conductive grease on those bulbs..moisture corrodes contacts..try scraping them clean also..
#4577 of 5143 2006 Grand Cherokee Navigation not working
Oct 23, 2009 (5:23 am)
Hi I have a 2006 Grand Cherokee with an in dash navigation system. The navigation started reading disc error and now only turns on for a moment when it is really cold out. As soon as the car warms up it turns off and goes black. I cant even use the unit to change radio stations. Is this fixable? and where would I have it fixed?

Is it possible to change a 249J transfer box to a 242J on a 1994 Grand Cherokee Limited?
If so, are there any modifications needed on the new box?

--sounds like a real head scratcher..
if the auto makers were REALLY interested about customer service,they'd have a inter-company contest--and see who could diagnose-and fix really challanging problems like that, and have a big bonus check for the most talented! ? but-untill then,..find out who'se system your nav system that is,and see if they have any good ideas..
--other than that-get the BODY SERVICE MANUAL-for your car !..if you plan on keeping it -till th wheels fall off,that will be a invaluable book! -cause it was written-by the same people who built the car ! they might know something the others don't!

I just bought another used 95 cherokee sport. It had no remote with it. how do I tell if it had one and if so how do I go about getting one also horn does not work could the system be disabled causing the horn not to work. When you push the button on wheeel it clicks under dash but no horn Thanks

if you get a click -but no horn,it's either unplugged,or bad..
--find the horn-usually on the radiator core support,and check the connection..hook up a circut tester,..if it lights up,or you get a digital-12v reading(depending on what kind of circut tester your using-the horn's bad..-try putting a hot wire to the horn terminal..if it sounds,then there's a bad connection..chase it down,and fix bad contact..
--autozone sells replacement remotes..you might even try chrystler's parts dept..they can look up the serial number(your V.I.N.-take your car's registration paper into the parts dept-it should be on there..simpler than trying to write it down-and getting a number wrong!)
-the v.i.n should tell you every option your jeep had when it was built..most of the grand cherokees i've seen have remote,but why they didn't add remote start?..that's the feature that works for me,as ohio gets cold,and climbing into a warm car is SO O O nice,when it's -20 BELOW..
#4582 of 5143 2000 JGC V8 Fuel Injectors? or is it something else?
Oct 28, 2009 (2:18 pm)
My truck has been out of commission for a while now. I'm thinking that its my fuel injectors after inspecting several sensors. Here is what my JGC does when i try to turn it on:
1). As I try to turn it on it makes a clicking noise
2). when it does turn on the motor accelerates as if i was stepping on the gas and the RPM shoots up.
3). After a few seconds of (step 2) the RPM drops down as the acceleration decreases dramatically to a point were it wants to turn off. It continues to dance on the RPM scale from 1k RPM to 500
4). When i would step on the gas pedal it wouldn't respond only if i were to press it down several times. but it would come in delay periods in between after i press the pedal.
5).Finally it turns off on its own or when i try to shift it to reverse or drive.
It be the obvious thing to take it to the mechanic but money is a lil tight right now so I'm open to any suggestions from anyone out there.

I found it. Now I have another queston. The leads go upward towards the firewall and between the engine. How do I pull the wires down to get to the end to unplug lt?. Will the wires come down enough to unplug them?. Do I have enought wires
before the plug end to unplug and install new sensor? If not how do I get to the plug end to do the replacement?
