I am having the same problems with my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It first started when I set the factory security system off and the gauges started going nuts with a strange fast clicking sound coming from behind the instrument panel.Now this happens 1 out of 5 times when I shut down the car. Nothing electrical works when this is happening and the only way to fix it is to disconnect the battery and reset the system.Anyone have any ideas?

mmm I seem to have the same problem. Came to the car this morning , had difficulty getting in and eventually after pressing the button about fifty times the door opened and now i have exactly the same problem as you have described but also my air con shows it is working but doesn't and the heater only gives out hot.
Over the last couple of months I have had to put my key fob almost at the window before it would open. don't know whether this is related.

i have a grand cherokee 3.1 2000 Turbo Diesel Automatic. right i was driving along the road the other day and everything just completely locked up, braked a couple of times and stopped. i could drive it in secound and first, as i had to get it to the side of the road. today i decided to have ago at driving it down the road in "drive" again and it was fine at a low speed (like 7-10mph) then when it went quicker it braked twice and went to a complete stop (didnt make a noise though). i put it in to 2nd and the same kinda happened again, so finally i put it in to 1st and it went quite a distance up the road but it did the same again(same again no noise). reverse works aswell btw. the reason i was tihnkin it was an electrical problem was because the transmission fluid is perfect, it doesnt smell burnt or look black and i thought that if it was something mechanical it just wouldnt drive at all or make a clunking noise.
btw ive also had a problem with starting it, i can turn the key to turn the radio on but its takes a couple of goes to turn the engine on as it just make a clunking noise. also aircon hasnt worked and one of the electric seats doesnt work.

Could be a transmission sensor going out. Our JGC would all of a sudden stall for no apparent reason and any speed. Mechanic said this is typical of the transmission sensor...when got hot it would shut off the engine.

thanks for your speedy reply.
ours doesnt stall it just seems to brakes shapely, engine still running.i think it does it when its trying to go in to 2nd gear.
does anyone know if the gearbox had completely gone if the car would move forward, because i would have thought if it was the gearbox had gone it just wouldnt go into 1st or 2nd gear
weve been driving round for about 12 months now without the prob shaft on the front of the car. could that have caused something to happen to it.
its as if the car is tied to a piece of rope and once the rope runs out it just comes to an instant hault (if you get what i mean lol) if that helps.

My son has a 2005 Grand Cherokee and the headlights come on and off while driving. He sometimes has to turn the headlight switch to get them to work again. Anybody have this problem or any suggestions?

#192 of 735 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo fuse problem
Oct 09, 2009 (3:44 pm)
Hi folks, I have a seriously strange problem. Two days ago my turn signals, and air controls on the dash went out (blown fuse 10amp). Replaced the fuse and all is good, so I thought. The moment I placed the gear selector into Reverse the fuse blows again. The fuse blows if I go from Park to Reverse, or Neutral to Reverse.
It works fine in Drive,2nd,1st, and Park.
So now I have no Reverse lights due to the fuse being blown. I have tried disconnecting the reverse light switch from the transmission, no luck... Also I have removed the reverse light bulbs, no luck... I have checked other bulbs for corrosion,etc. no luck....
Why would my Reverse gear be taking out my turn signals and air controls?
Can anyone tell me what might be the problem here??
I have never had any electrical problems before,until now. And I have never heard of anything like this.
