Jan 25, 2007 (12:28 pm)
My 2002 JGC started having temperature control problems, cold on driver /hot on passanger , gotit fix at the dealer US$300 , six months later it will cool but will not heat either sides, went to the dealer, their estimate is now us $1,100, they claim they have to replace booth temperature selectors and some valve or damper on the back. Does any budy have a cheaper solution???
All started to happen just after warranties had expired

in November 05 i took my 01 jeep in because i wasnt getting any heat only air, so i took it in and they said that my heating and cooling doors, the heat was jammed shut, so aftert hey replaced it, and took of the dash and the labor it was $1,000. THEN! 13 months later during the coldest time ever in KC the heat went out AGAIN!! not only that but when you drive over 25 super freezing air from outside blows inside. i called them up and they will not honor any warrenty due to its over 12 mo. THEN there is no sign of this going to recall, because those who have repared have not complained to Jeep or Chrysler. so after i spend another $1,000, i can have heat again, but the real kicker is what its blowing now is heat its just half power because the cold door is jammed shut so no air in the summer, and the heat door is jammed half shut so if i run the heat it smells like its on fire because its burning up the bearings so i am told...

I have a 1996 Grand Jeep Cherokee. I first started to have problems with the a/c. I was able to get freon added a few times, but eventually had to replace the a/c unit. While I was at it I had the mechanics replace the heater core in case that went bad. About $ 800.00 - I don't take it to the dealership because they always tell you things that you need to fix that are fine. I take it to a trusted mechanic shop.

On my 1997, which is the same body style, it is located on the A/C line right by the coolant recovery tank. This is the passenger side, rear of engine compartment.
#6 of 511 A/C Clutch Replacement
Apr 05, 2007 (12:41 am)
Ok so my jeep (1997 Limited 5.2L 4x4) is making this funny noise on the serp. belt, took it in the tech says its the clutch assembly. They want like 250 for the part alone, I said NO! But I looked around and autozone has a remanufactured clutch assembly for 80$. I have thought about replacing the compressor all together but I don't want to mess with the evac. and stuff. Has anyone replaced the clutch in their A/C, did you have success? I mean is it a waist of time and money, how long do these compressors usually last? How did clutch replacement work out for you? Any tips or how-too would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. -Brent

#8 of 511 03 JGC Tire pressure sensor "BAD/MISSING"???
Apr 05, 2007 (7:36 pm)
Does anyone know how to reset this error message or make it go away?
"TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR BAD/MISSING"
I went in for an oil change and on start up from the dealer to leave, this error message came up. Yes they fk'd it up. I disregarded it at first as I thought they rotated my tires & did not retrain the sensors. But they did not rotate the tires and this damn error message won't go away!
I changed the tire pressures in all 4 and retrained the sensor. It all registered correctly but on boot up, the self-test spits out this "TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR BAD/MISSING" error message.
The service rep had the audacity to tell me it is because my spare tire was missing the sensor - I told him I have a 4-sensor system & my spare tire does not have a sensor. He said he does not understand why for 80k miles I have not had this happen. The new sensor is $88, the labor is $26. I am being ripped.
Can any of you guys/gals help out? It's driving me nuts. This is my 4th GC and I have NEVER seen this. Have had the car for 80k wonderful miles and going strong. This has never happen before.
