I think that the lack of a VSS signal is playing a part here. It sounds like an intermittent VSS problem though, as the engine won't idle if the signal is completely missing. The PCM requires road speed information, which it correlates with engine speed, throttle position, OČ sensor input etc. to determine fueling requirements. Also, VSS data is used when deaccelerating so that the IAC can be used to generate correct MAP conditions. That could be why the PCM is seeing the MAP data as incorrect and is throwing the MAP codes.

The seat pivot point is a bar that passes through two brackets with holes in them, the bar being retained with two 'R' clips. To remove the seat you first remove the 'R' clips then slide the seat to one side until the bar comes out of one of the brackets. Slide it the other way to free it from the other bracket, then lift it out. It's easiest to perform the whole operation from the rear.

Thanks so much for taking the time Mac24! This should help this not so mechanically inclined TJ owner!

Just ordered a Tire Cover for my Jeep. Do they just slip over the spare without taking the tire off the back or do I have to take the tire off to put it on properly? Come to think of it..if I have to remove the lug nuts to take the tire off I would not be able to put the cover on and put the lug nuts back on...Its early here.

You failed to specify if the cover is the kind that you push on with your thumbs or if it is the kind that you pound on with a hammer.
Did you just buy one?
They usually come as a set of four, five if you want to cover your spare.
I think they get pretty dirty if you drive on them.

If it is the flexible type, they generally come with an elastic band in the back. It looks kind of like a shower cap (Sorry, that is the best description I could come up with). You just push this band over the tire and it holds the cover in place.

Remembering a previous post that you sometimes get finger trouble these days, you'll find that it's easiest fitted and removed while warm, preferably in direct sunlight, as the vinyl material gets less flexible when the temperature drops.
In order to remain attached at speed it has to be snug fit, hence it doesn't just snap on, it has to worked into place. If the weather won't play ball then a hair dryer will probably do the trick.

Yep..both some new stuff. Are there directions or a diagram for the install for my 2006 Jeep Wrangler X?
Yes...I am new at this. I added a Jeep Grille overlay which looks great and a new bumper. When the weather gets warmer I plan on installing a safari style bikini and a deck cover. This new "toys" can become a money pit..but I do love it so.........Pushing 60...feel like 18 again.
