Would replacing the wrong fluids in the diff cause damage? replacing 70/140 with 70/90 ?
Need a bit of advice ... I took my vehicle in to one of these quick lube places ... they had recommended changing the fluids in the front and rear diffs. I was not experiencing any issues with the vehicle but since the fluids as far as I know were not changed ... I ok'd the work.
Shortly there after I started hearing a grinding noise coming from the rear ... Great I just changed the fluids now a noise ... took it into a shop... told him I just had the fluids changed ... so he wrote off the diffs and said it sounds like the wheel bearings ... replaced the wheel bearings .
The noise still there ... this is when i start looking into what was replaced in the vehicle ... the shop has admitted replacing the fluids with the wrong grade ... however the are not accepting that the wrong fluids caused damage.

My jeep is older than yours, but I bet dipstick is in same location. Mine is close to the firewall on the driver side and it is very low. You have to reach down. The handle may be black and its a little dark down there. On other cars I own it is much easier to find. Yours may be on passenger side, but I bet its still down low and close to firewall.
#4776 of 5143 Cluster Fuse problem '96JGC
Jul 01, 2010 (1:46 pm)
Need some help. My 20a cluster fuse (pass side kick panel) keeps blowing. Sometimes when I accelerate and the rest of the time as soon as I put the neg cable back on the batt. Replaced batt last week. All other fuses on all other panels (under hood and on pass kick panel) are good. I did see this TSB: http://www.jeep-club.at/troubless/TSB/08-41-95.htm but no other ideas. I have looked for loose wires and bad grounds. The ONLY think I found so far is that I see to have a very long batt ground which is coiled around the batt at tied to the AC lines under the hood. I am guessing short but no idea where to look first.
Thanks in advance!
#4777 of 5143 Get Your Digital Voltmeter
Jul 01, 2010 (3:21 pm)
Disconnect (-) on battery first. To solve this problem you will have to pull the instrument cluster and disconnect all wiring. Obtain a pinout diagram of connectors on cluster. Then, identify all pins/sockets that are NOT ground. Then check them with a digital volt meter to see if any are shorted to one of the ground pins on the cluster. If you find a short, replace the cluster. If not, you will have to check the wiring. For checking wire shorts, have a long clip lead attached to the (-) terminal connector that you just removed from the battery and connect it to the DVM. Then, probe all non Ground wires for a short. Use a DVM that gives an audible beep when it reads a short. If you replace the cluster without checking the wiring, a problem in the wiring could damage the cluster as soon as you install it. If you find no shorts in cluster or wiring, then I would take a chance and replace the cluster. You could have an input that is suppose to have 10K ohms, but is actually 50. It won't show up as a short, but can still draw too much current and blow the fuse.

By reading this forum I see buying my 98 Grand Cherokee as a spare vehicle was a mistake. But since the damage is done...
My JGC just has a terrible smell coming through the vents. Where do I start to get rid of it. Air freshener doesn't help. I can't use the heating/cooling system b/c its so bad.
