You absolutely should NOT buy the car. But can you give me your family member's phone number?
#115 of 735 hiss/whine from stereo speakers

i've only recently noticed that i can hear static and low-level whine that rises and falls in pitch with my engine rpm. i only hear it if my headlights are on (either w/ turning lamps/fog lamps only or headlights on too) when the car is running. any ideas? it sounds like it might be related to my alternator, but i'm not sure.
any thoughts would be appreciated, since i'm headed to the shop tomorrow for some TC/trans. work. thanks.
#116 of 735 '97 Jeep Grand Cherokee-Battery draw
Mar 27, 2009 (11:01 am)
I bought this vehicle used last summer and use it primarily for recreation. So at times it sat with out being started. The battery always needed to be recharged if it sat more than a week. I figured I needed to replace the battery. I spoke to my mechanic about it, he told me he'd take a look at it while he was doing some other work on it. Turns out the battery is fine, there is something drawing from the battery while it is not running. All the obvious things were checked. But we could not figure out what was drawing from the battery. I thought it may be the alarm, does not appear to be the problem. When the cables are re-connected the poz always sparks. Anyone know about this problem?

Hello, having the exact same problem with my jeep same year as well. Wondering if you had the problem fixed and if so what was it and how much did it cost? Any help would be greatly appreciated. If anyone else has any other solutions please advise. Thanks in advance.
#118 of 735 '94 Jeep Cherokee Issues
Mar 31, 2009 (8:21 am)
I drive a 94 Jeep Cherokee with 97000 miles on it. Yesterday morning I woke up to a dead vehicle and figured my lights had been left on, so I jumped it and it worked fine. This morning I woke up to a dead jeep again, so I figure its the battery going on me. I cleaned the terminals and connectors and then put a 10 amp charger on it. Upon doing this, a module on the right side (not quite sure what it is) began to smoke pretty bad. I quickly unplugged the charger and the smoking stopped, and now here I am.
Anyone have any ideas?

Is it possible that you connected the charging unit with polarity reversed? Or perhaps you have a shorted electrical circuit.

I thought that maybe I had them reversed when I jumped it, but I'm positive that I hooked the charger up right. And it still started smoking. The ECM is the module that is smoking. Could a short elsewhere cause this?

Absolutely! At this point, I would put in the hands of professionals though that's probably not what you want to hear.
