#1540 of 1886 2005 jeep wrangler right hand drive automatic (vibration)
May 27, 2009 (12:33 pm)
I operate this jeep on my mail route and have developed a vibration (like driving over a washboard) that starts at 45 MPH and gets progressively worse the faster you go. I just had the tires balanced not too long ago (but will do again) but I have felt THAT sort of shimmy (side-to-side) before and the tire re-balance eliminated that problem. This vibration is real different more of an up-and-down vibration. My mechanic drove it and can't figure it out. I really need some good advice on what this problem might be. Thank you.

Can only guess of course, but it sounds like a tire problem. Probably one of the belts has separated which will require replacement of the affected tire.

Could be anything from a bad O2 sensor to binding brakes.
What did the 'tune up' consist of?

Do you have stock tires or larger ones? If larger ones, you need to change the speedometer gear in the transfer case to accurately reflect speed and mileage. Your mileage may not be as bad as you think.
#1547 of 1886 AC working fine but AC Fan Not working
Jun 13, 2009 (12:18 pm)
I have at 2005 Wrangler X 6cy and the AC fan does not blow. The ac compressor works fine because I can turn the AC on and if going 65 or so down the freeway some air will blow through the system and it is nice and cold. Unfortunately when stopped at a light or 35 no air will blow through the system.
I had a problem before where the AC only blew through the defrost vent on High. When I had it repaired the guy said it was a vacuum hose that came off. I referred to a message on this board,#1242, but that did not do the trick. Any Ideas?

Could be a faulty blower, resistor pack, or control switch, but most likely it's just a blown fuse.
