I have been having that problem also, and it was when I changed out the battery. First thing I am going to do is replace the battery. Then I am going to check the wiring to the battery, I did read somewhere that someone was having that problem and it was in a wire to the battery. It wasnít the cables it was a wire leading to the battery. When they put my battery in it was not sitting level I fixed that problem, but it dies sometimes when I am making a slow turn. I am having a lot of problems with that jeep it is a 04 JGCL with 70,miles on it. If you ever figure out what is going on pleas let me know and I will do the same. Thanks

Hi Laura, I can tell you there is a black wire in the driver door jam. Just slide the boot back and you will see there may be a wire or two broken. When you fix the black wire it will fix the problem with your windows. I had a few wires broke that controlled a lot of electrical problems. I would start with that you never know one of them wires may control youíre a/c blower. I donít think it will, but it may. You would be amazed what went wrong with my 04jgcl with the orange and white wire and black wire broke. I really think the wiring in the driver door jam is where you should start. There is a lot of stuff about this on the sight, I would type (windows) in the search and I am sure you will be able to find more information on what I am talking about. Hope this helps.

May 25, 2012 (5:11 am)
I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ive had nothing but problems. I got two trannys put in. Shifts fine and the check engine light came on said the sensor went so I got that changed.. The check engine light came back on so I needed spark plugs did that. check engine light again, new coils .. :again: fuel filter .. :again: fuel line which had a leak,, :again: and then I just got a crank shaft sensor (not exact on the correct name for it) and again the check engine light is back on .. when it not blinking its fine it runs great as soon as it starts to blink i cant accelerate and it starts to buck kinda bad.. sometimes i can let go of the gas slow down and it will stop blinking and I can continue to drive but a lot of the times I actually have to stop and start my car again to proceed. each time i got something replaced which all the parts i got replaced needed to be fixed you could see that, it still does the same thing this since the beginning when the light first turned on. Please help.. what could this be? I am at a loss.. Also my blinkers work when they want to and my headlights dont work .. the lights themselves are fine.. I seen one come on for a little while and it is back off but my high beams work.
#652 of 708 sounds like computer problems
May 25, 2012 (8:43 am)
My son has a car that acted like that. Check your battery connections and make sure the ground connection to the car is clean and put a star washer under it to bite into the metal. If the ground circuit to the battery is bad or marginal the computer will act weird. Also make sure any other ground connections from the engine to the chassis or any where else are also clean. Sometimes they look good but underneath the washer or bolt is corrosion and that is a no no for the little current draw of the computers....yes some models have more than one. I have a 2003 and the coil went out. In the process I found several connectors with bad connections. Sometimes you have to pull apart some of those connections you see in the engine compartment and reconnect them to clean the connection. It all sounds like electrical. And again make sure the battery connections look like new...ANY corrosion on the posts is a big killer.
#653 of 708 a/c and dash lights
May 25, 2012 (12:15 pm)
I have a 1996 JGCL and the dash lights flicker bright and dim constantly when my headlights are on..my husband replaced the headlight switch control box and it stopped for a day or two and then started flickering again.. another problem I just started having is that the ac just stopped blowing ... I turned the ac off and waited a couple of minutes and turned it back on and it worked just fine .. the ac issue has happened twice now. I seen someone said that it might be the clutch in the ac compressor. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix these 2 problems?
#655 of 708 2012 Grand Cherokee battery light
Jun 12, 2012 (4:59 pm)
Appears that my Jeep does not like to go thru a automatic car wash, one where the vehical is pulled thru. Four out of 6 times I will have the wipers come on automatically and make 1 or 2 swipes, the traction (or hill??) light will flash, and then the battery light comes on a stays on. The first time I took it to the dealer and as soon as they shut it off and restarted the light was cleared. They kept it for 4 hours and just said that the codes indicated a voltage spike but no issues. Now I'm just keeping a log between oil changes to document.
Any ideas or similar experiences?

I found the problem when I got another reading that the sensor was bad the one I just changed out. I started pulling all the wires from that sensor all the way to the pcm and found a burnt wire back behind the motor. The bracket was broke that held them from touching the motor and that is why it happened. I never could get a good reading on the injectors that is why I figured it had to be a wire. Hope this helps someone. Now I am getting 2 different codes on the fans. Back to the drawing board. But it runs so good..Tanya
