Many people seem to have problems with the rotors. Mine were bad when I drove my 06 off the lot and they replaced them two weeks later and said there was a bad batch...there are more posts about this issue.

Help! I have a 97 Wrangler with a 4.0L; I drive it every day and it runs great but every now and then (more often recently) the engine idles at about 2000 RMP. It starts fine and runs at a normal idle speed for a few minuets and then begins to run fast as long as the engine is warm it will idle fast when restarted. I have checked the throttle linkage and it is all free. Error codes are 12 and 43. Acceleration is good, holds an idle (whether fast or normal), and has a miss (I will change plugs and wires soon). Recent repairs include replacement of the O2 sensor (up stream) approx 6 months ago. Can you give some insight as to the problem. Thanks Tim

I'd check with a local auto parts store (ending with Zone) to have them check for any codes. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say your computer is reading the throttle sensor wrong (or it is bad). I had the opposite where it wouldn't idle well at all. It threw codes to point me to replacing the throttle position sensor. Yours MAY be erring in the other direction and going high.
Have you offroaded it recently or gotten the engine area wet/soaked either through a huge puddle or cleaning the engine?

Recent off road- no, but some large puddles and I did wash the engine, but this is something that I have done before. This problem appeared during a "Dry Time" and does not appear to be related to getting something wet. Should I just replace the sensor or is there someplace else to start. Thanks Tim

I'd start with Autozone and see if it is still throwing codes. They can analyze em and tell you what is up. Hopefully it'll point to a bad sensor and relieve your problems. It MAY be the Throttle Position sensor, but it could also be an O2 sensor. Bad sensors make these newer cars get all wacky.

I have a 2001 Wrangler and my brake lights and dash lights are out too. I have a blown fuse and replace the fuse but it immediately blows again. I wonder if it is the turn signal switch or rheostat. Not sure if rheostat is part of the turn signal switch or a separate component. I've found a turn signal switch for about $60 and thinking about buying. Have you found out anything?

Dose anyone know how to or if you can take part the side view mirrors from a '98 Jeep Wrangler? I have them off my Jeep. I am having problems taking them part to repaint them.

To what extent are you wanting to take em off?
The 2 screws on the underside of the mirror will let you remove it from the arm. Want to take the glass out? You'd probably be better off just masking it with painter's tape and newspaper.
Other than that, there really isn't much to take apart.

I just had the same thing happen to me on my '02! I replaced a fuse that blew right away. Anyone have any advice yet? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
