#52 of 81 cherokee alt swap info needed
Nov 24, 2007 (8:43 pm)
I have a 1997 jeep cherokee and have installed a high power sterio system in it. so powerful that all the lights dim when hitting a bass note. I need to install a high amp alternator but I am trying to find one off of a different dodge or jeep that is over 100 amps. what cars and trucks have the same alt set-up on them? Also will a high amp alt hurt my computor or anything. thanks.

I too have a 95 JGC. I was at my aunts funeral when my factory installed alarm first started going off when I opened my doors. In the owners manual it explains to make it stop is to try to lock and unlock the drivers, passenger or the back gate.
What makes mine stop is if I go to the back gate and turn the key to the right, left and then back to the right again. Then the horn stops. Kinda like a combination lock. Silly? Yes, but itworks!

I recently bought a 2006 Grand Cherokee limited with a Hemi. Yesterday I recieved a message saying "Service 4WD System", has anyone got this before? If so, what came out of it. It is driving me nuts, I have the car two weeks!!!
#55 of 81 Navigation Audio Garbled

I've installed a Nav. unit from a '06 GC Limited on my '06 GC Laredo. The unit operates fine except for the audo navigation instructions which are very loud and very garbled. The am-fm-cd sound is perfect.
Does anyone know what I need to do to get the nav. audio working correctly?
Thanks in advance.

A lot of AM interference on my Optimus 12-2154 radio while the engine is running. Turn off the engine and turn ignition to accessory and reception improves dramatically. What could this be. I've already replaced spark plugs and wires with NO results.

I have a 2005 JGC that experienced the same message. The dealer replaced a defective sensor in the front differential to solve the problem. Thank goodness I had the warranty.

generally if you loose the ability to control the radio with steering controls, verify that none of the controls are stuck engaged. simple way to do that is to try the same operation at the radio itself. if you still can not preform the function, then something else is messed up. if you find that the operation works at the radio then one of the buttons on the steering wheel controls is stuck. simply pull out the control switch from the wheel and disconnect the 2 wire connection and check if you can use the controls at the wheel to control the radio. if you can just replace that rocker switch. good luck

sounds like a grounding issue, you can always add a ground to the actual radio and it will not hurt anything, that should solve your problem. or check your ground wire on the harness see what kind of ohms you are getting. the factory ground for the harness i believe is in the center council next to the airbag module. good luck
