#4973 of 5134 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee clicking by glove box
Nov 13, 2011 (7:24 pm)
First of all I connected the battery backwards. When the spark occurred I immediately disconnected the cables. Now when I take the key out of the ignition a clicking noise comes from the glove box. The clicking stops when I close the door. I removed #5 fuse but now the door locks don't work, nor do the inside lights...Any idea what I need to do. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I think you blew the Body Control Unit..which is a companion computer with the ECU (Engine). It controls all the electrical system (all the little things that no one thinks about) inside the cabin. Buy one online for $150.00 to $200.00, already formatted and programmed.
The body computer is in the glove box along with a bunch of relays. It may just be the breaker IN FRONT of the body computer...which would blow to protect the body computer, but 99% of techs will replace the BCU.
I do not have a service manual on me but this is a pretty good guess.

chrysler says noise in pump is normal and put up with it seems it's a case of head in the sand.. Has anyone else reported this problem; pump is used in 2011- 2012 v-6 applications. I was told to buy the v-8 if I didn't want the noise.
#4976 of 5134 auto lights on 93 jgc not working

We have a 93 Jeep Grand C. and the auto lights work as far as the sensor goes but the only lights that come on are the running lights. The headlights do not come on. They do if you manually move the switch to the manual position so my thought is that the relay is probable defective but am not sure which relay to replace. Was hoping someone also knows if there is another relay exactly the same that could be swapped in a test.

It sounds like your anti-theft system is disabling the car, thinking it has been stolen. i am no mechanic but this used to happen to me every time I let a battery die and it needed jumped in my 95 grand. As soon as you have juice flowing, use your remote, or the key in the door is better, to "unlock" it thus turning off the anti-theft, then continue to jump and start it. that should do it. Your car thinks it is being stolen.

Hi everyone!! I have a 2006 cherokee and lately everytime i starts it, it makes a clicking sound for about 2-3 seconds and you dont hear the noise anymore. But when i check my oil knowing that i just had it service that same week its half past where it should be, but its not leaking on the ground. I had someone check it they're saying that its the crank shaft seal in the rear that needs to be change, but another mechanic is saying otherwise. Can someone help me please, because to have the crank shaft seal remove and replace its gonna cost me $1300.00 which is very exspensive

If you do not have a visible leak under the car, its not the rear crankcase main seal. Suggest you place a large piece of butcher paper under the car when you park at night and see if there are any oil spots the next morning, no oil, no leak. If you have a V8, those take 6 quarts of oil, not 5. Some oil change places only put in 5 because most do not know about the extra quart. I have a 2004 Grand Cherokee and have had low oil after an oil change, just added a quart and good to go. Top off the oil to the fill mark on LEVEL ground and check it after 500 miles. It should be close to full and above the add mark. As far as the clicking sound, that is a valve lifter. If it quits after a few seconds, there is no problem with it, its very common in many cars besides Jeep.

Hi mikey, thanks for the idea, i will put a large piece of paper under there to see if its really leakin. My engine size is actualy a V6. I will call the dealer to see if they have that vavle lifter your talkin about.

It's your blend door. Common failure on this vintage of jeep. Search YouTube for video on how to easily diag while sitting in your driveway.
Good luck. There are repair kits that you can get for about $120 that allow you to do repair for less than dealer charges.
