#575 of 708 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee electical problems
Nov 29, 2011 (5:57 am)
My jeep has been draining batteries for two years now, only happens in the cold months but can be assured that will have to replace the overcharged drained battery in the spring, mechanic cannot seem to pinpoint the exact problem, have resolved a few minor issues but cannot seem to fix the drainage problem, dont want to kill another battery......also it seems my temp guage gets stuck in the hot position check gauges light comes on, hear a swishing liquid sound and then the light goes off and guage goes back to normal???? actually, not for sure its the temp guage, its the right bottom guage and am assuming its temp???

Thanks for posting this information. We bought a used 99 Laredo at was wondering why the guy said good luck. Passenger side window, air vents, and cruise control don't work. We fixed the break light thing. So if you could tell me how to fix the window, air and cruise that would be so wonderful. I haven't had the stalling problem yet but I have looked up the fixes for that too. Thanks again
#577 of 708 95 Grand Cherokee - electrical & not starting
Dec 04, 2011 (4:26 pm)
I have a 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (5.7L). While running all the guages shut down and went to 0 and all the electrical warning lights came on. The car continued to run ok but after parked and shut off the Jeep started but wouldn't continue to run - kept stalling. After a few attempts the Jeep will not start at all all! All lights, stereo, etc. are working but the engine will not turn over or even click. The Jeep died approx. 1 month ago for my daughter and we had it towed to a dealer who installed a new starter. Has anyone experienced anything like this?

i have a 2005 jeep grand Cherokee lardo and about a week ago the heated seats would stop working and star back after the truck would sit turned off over night, then today the radio would turn on and off, service electroinc brake system would pop up on the dash the dash would start dinging, and last night my key wouldnt unlock the truck. but has all day today. i work at a ford dealership and have never heard or seen anything like this. this is actually my second jeep i had no probs with my 97 but i brought this one used only a month ago. if someone could point me in the right direction to look that would be great

Have your mechanic check the CPS (crank positioning sensor) if he hasn't done it yet( cheep part expensive on labor) or the modle inside the distributer.

Having the same problem replaced o2 senor map sensor, then know the muffler round as a balloon and backfired. the pcm screw was held by 3 screws and loose. when he pulls on the harness it shuts off. you are saying is is grounding out on the firewall. remove the bootom left bolt and stuff a shirt behind the pcm do you leave the bolt off. some one said in another post replace screws with plastic ones. we are frustated. it seems the pcm was replaced in 06 we just got this in sept 11. i do not want to replace this pcm.

I'm not particularly knowledgable about such things but..... I have a 2001 JGC. I had a problem arise effecting both the heater vent controls and the cruise control. Both stopped working at the same time. I did some research online and learned that it was due to a vaccuum leak. Took the car to a mechanic and explained what I found online. He found and fixed the leak and both issue were solved. It was a very inexpensive repair. Hope that helps.

Plastic screws will work too. I got too frustrated with having to go to the hardware store to buy the plastic screws. I had plastic spacers in my tool bag and placed them in between the PCM screws. I flipped the PCM upside down (meaning the harness is still facing forward but the PCM is upside down) and have not had a problem since. I played around with it and finally found a position that worked. For some reason the angle of the PCM mattered as well.
