Your gonna say the same thing I said when I read it: I already checked the fuse. But when I checked my number 8 fuse, the problem was fixed. For the first time in a year I can open the door and listen to the radio at the same time...

Check fuse #8! (I'm pretty sure it was #8--it was definitely a 15 amp fuse.)
I had a very similar problem with a 95 Grand Cherokee. It all started when turning off an overhead light. A relay near the passenger's feet was clicking rapidly when a door was open; radio worked intermittently; an aftermarket CD changer didn't work; info display in front of gear shift didn't work; interior lights blinked dimly, even when they should have been off; power door locks didn't work. The car drove fine, but the electrical system was going crazy. It turned out that this was all caused by one blown fuse.
#5065 of 5143 2012 Overland EVIC issue
Feb 15, 2012 (6:36 pm)
All of a sudden today, my EVIC is acting strange. Normally, when you hit the Select button (the arrow pointing to the right), you get taken to a list of options - settings, fuel economy, average speed, tire pressure, etc. Then you would select what option you wanted.
Now, when I hit that button it skips the list and takes me right to the Fuel economy screen. I can't get back to the list of options like to reset some of the driver settings. No matter what I do, I can't get back to the list. When I hit the back button, it goes back to the standard blank information screen.
It's really annoying. Someone suggested resetting the electronics cluster by doing something (there is a button in the battery case in the engine compartment?). But that seems excessive.

#5067 of 5143 2008 Limited Cherokee AUTO 3.7 Temperature Transmission
Feb 29, 2012 (8:11 pm)
I recently bought a really tidy 2008 Auto limited cherokee and absolutely love it. Im still getting used to many of it features and capabilities.
One small problem I live in australia and do quite alot of beach driving getting to surf spots and the other day my transmission high temp light lit up.. I read the manual and figured that it was becasue on the sand i wasnt getting enough purchase and the transmission was working hard to select the right gear. Im just wondering if it was becasue it was nearly 40 degree celsius (which equates to 110F) and because i was going pretty hard or do I need another cooler on the transmission. I resolved the problem by putting her into 1st and creeping home.
Thanks heaps guys and look forward to hearing back

In soft sand try putting your Transfer Case into Low 4. Will take some load off your Transmission and Torque Converter. Should run cooler that way but slower (Lot lower gear). May also help to turn off the Overdrive, put it in Tow-Haul mode. If it has the Tow Package it should allready have a good heavy duty Tramsmission Cooler on it ? Best of Luck. "PEP" :>)
#5070 of 5143 '99 Grand Cherokee 4.7L PCM Replacement
Mar 30, 2012 (6:57 am)
Replaced the PCM on my 1999 GC with the 4.7L and now it will not start. It started and ran rough prior to swapping the PCM, now it just tries to turn over, but won't.
I purchased the rebuilt PCM from Auto Computer Exchange who programmed the new PCM based on my VIN. I disconnected the battery before I performed the procedure. I have checked and rechecked all the connections and everything seems to be in order.
Is anyone aware of anything that needs to be done after replacing the PCM that I may be missing?

My 2011 Overland has a similar problem, on occasion hitting the back button take me to the Tire Pressure screen regardless of where I started from. The dealer can't replicate it, so they can't fix it. I've had others suggest that disconnecting the battery every month or so helps reboot the system and rids it of these numerous gremlins that pop up from time to time. That's not an acceptable answer to me, but I haven't found anything better. I love the vehicle but so glad I leased it, I can't imagine owning this quality nightmare outside the warranty period.
#5073 of 5143 2006 grand cherokee overland shuttering
Apr 11, 2012 (4:54 am)
I have a 06 overland with 106k miles with just under 4k miles on extended warrenty. We just drove 1000 miles down to florida and two days after our arrival we began experiancing a shutter when steering while the car is cold. This happens when backing out of our parking spot or low speed turns. The further I turn the wheel the worst it gets. After its is warmed up the shutter stops. We took it to a local dealership and they are trying to tell us that it is because the differentials and transfer case needs servicing for a cost of $450. I fail to see how this could be the issue since it does not occur unless the wheels are turned.
Any ideas would be welcome as we are about to make a return trip of 1000 miles in a few days and I don't want to get stranded in the middle of nowhere on 95.
