#214 of 232 Air conditioning lights
Nov 03, 2010 (11:05 am)
hey i have a 96 Jeep Cherokee and ive been driving it for a couple years now and my sister drove it before me what i noticed was that for all these years that the area around the air conditioning was always soooo dark but i thought that it was like that just because it was such an old car ...but until this weekend my lights above the a/c(max, norm, bi, vent, head and the tempature settings) turn on and you could actually see them...my mind was blown and everything cuz i thought it was cool but now it wont stay on and hasnt turned on since i turned my car off that night. what is the problem and what can i do to solve it thanks!
#216 of 232 2002 GC check engine light on.......
Oct 23, 2010 (7:24 am)
I got a 2002 GC larendo (sport) with 4.0L I6, it began to do interesting things from last weekend. The check engine light went on when I was on the way to supermarket, the light stayed on for 3-4 driving cycles, it was about 14 miles total. I opened the hood, checked oil, coolant, cleaned the dust on the modules... and the light went off~
This morning the light went on again, with nothing feeling wrong about it. Since I was almost out of gas, which could be a reason for the light, I filled the tank, no lucky. The battery reading is ~14 volts, new spark plug, new driving belt, new air filter, all other fluid are all new.... I didn't read the code yet, anybody has any idea on that?

first of all, I'm pretty young and in need of a vehicle. My friend has a JGC 2004 150K excellent condition from what I see. She has one problem she says the engine light comes on from time to time. She says she took it to a mechanic they somehow fixed it with a new gas cap, but just yesterday it came on again, she says she told them to change all the hoses. It has come on again. I asked her did they reset the computer, she said yes. She's selling it for $4000 good rubber, alot of working options. I know it has been in 2 accidents, all cosmetic already have been repaired. Is this worth me pruchasing? Please advise, I really like it but afraid of serious problems. Thank you, SweetV

The code for the ECL on is Throttle/Pedal position sensor~ I bought a new sensor and ready to change it. One question, do i need to adjust the new TPM? I though most "new model" after like 85 or 87 are nonadjustable, right? The sensor will do the calibration itself, am i wrong?
It is 2002 JGC 4.0L 6cyl.
#219 of 232 guage lights going on and off - sentry key light
Nov 29, 2010 (11:11 am)
well i had the security key light come on and stay on (not flashing). sometimes it went out but it was on more than off. but my 2000 grand cherokee ran fine. however, it died on me 2 or 3 times over a week and 1/2. but always started right back up after i came to a stop and put in park and restarted.
then a week or two into it the guages all went dead, and all the dash lights came on. but the wj was still running fine. the guages would bounce on and off but usually stay on. then i realized it was happening when the temperature went below say 45 degrees. it happend alot then, but she still ran fine... the key light was coming on almost everytime but the guages seem to only bounce around when the outside temperature was under 45 degrees or so....
got to be a ground.... right??? well i undid the battery terminals and cleaned them even thought they looked good and left the battery unplugged for 20 minutes. i read this may reset the computer. did not expect much. but that was two days ago and i have not had a problem since. and the temperature was in the 30's. i am still skeptical but it is working great since i cleaned the terminals and left it unplugged to rest the computer.
so we will see

im been reading about how cherokees are on voltage. so i did all kind of things to fix mine and no luck until today it die on me the batery was gone in five minutes,no voltage at all so i bought a new batery on kmart for 109.00 and all the pending codes 1487,1487,no bus signal and all gauges problems gone just like that.get a new battery and you see the plates inside your battery are damaged,still start your engine but not enough to keep all the modules working well.HOPE THIS WORK FOR YOU AND TO HEAR ABOUT IT.
