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.

I am experiencing the same issue with my 05 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7L. All guages drop to 0 and it goes into low (tow gear) and the check engine light goes off. I was driving the other night and everything shut down all at once and the Jeep stalled. It started back up and ran fine the rest of the way home. The check engine light is still on but I haven't driven it since then.

To anyone having flickering headlights/interior lights issues - I have found a solution!! I had this problem for 3 years and finally found a specialist that immediately knew what to do. It's your light switch/turn signal. You just need it replaced. It cost me only $200.

I have same exact problem now for past few months on 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee .... Thinking it might be a fuse also but not sure ...??
((And also in addition to previous posts my jeep's whole electrical system instrument panel used to flicker on and off very crazily for no reason but when I would turn the jeep off and back on the instrument panel would light up normal . Took it to dealership and they never could find a problem and now it has not happened luckily anymore in the past couplen years ....))
#588 of 708 1994/1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Alarm System
Dec 15, 2011 (7:52 am)
For several mornings, I have been woken up at 3 am or so for the alarm in my Jeep Cherokee going off randomly. I thought that if I pulled the fuse that it would stop. It did not. I pulled one of the other fuses related to the security system...to no avail as a matter of fact this morning when I went to start it to go to work. It would not start. When I put the 2 fuses back in it started just fine. What in the wprld could be causing this and what can I do?

I am guessing maybe a low battery.
I've had similar problems. I got the car used (180,000 miles now) and I don't know how many owners before me, but I didn't get a door remote to lock and unlock the doors. Have to use the key. I found that if I lock the doors with the switch inside, shut the door and leave, the alarm goes off within 5 minutes. Have to use the key in the driver door to reset the alarm. Also had left the dome light on and the battery died. I couldn't get it started via jumper cables....lights just kept flickering and the ignition clicked....until I thought about resetting the alarm with the key in the door....and it started fine. It's inconvenient but door reset seems to solve the problem for me. Hope it helps.

I know this post is old but I've heard this a few times and experienced it twice myself.
Once the battery went dead and had to have the jeep jumped, it triggered the alarm which kept the car from running after a couple of seconds. I had to reset the alarm. Since I don't have a door lock remote, I simply used the key in the door, turned it like I was locking and unlocking which reset the alarm.
On mine, which is a bit old and beat up (3rd, 4th 10th? owner), if I don't use the key to lock the doors, the alarm will go off 5-10 minutes after I leave the car. Still can't figure that one out but maybe this will help. Good luck.

im about to buy a 1994 jeep grand cherokee from an original owner and is in great condition for 1.600 was all fired up about it then saw the reliability marks when it came to transmission and driveline issues and elrctrical, and even the 4 wheel drive! however the classic didnt have those low marks in any category. ive owned several xj's in the past, great wheelers and reliable daily driver, however i was looking forward to the much cleaner and more luxury insides of the grand cherokee, it has the same engine as the xj, the 4.oliter. can anyone tell me something good about the zj, or am i making a mistake choosing thezj over thexj, could use some opinions on this matter

My 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee,had these problems .
On startup no gages,no warning lights,no read out from the status control pannel, and no turn signals.
Removed negative battery terminal connector for an hour then reconnected it to the battery.
This seems to have corrected the problem.
