4x4 97 jimmy... lots going on, tempature keeps going way up when it happens it will blow cold air, check gage light keeps going on, there is a noise like a hampster is on its wheel squeeky, wheel feels...


The first thing to check Amy is your coolant level under the hood. the temp is going up because of low coolant, the loss of heat is because its too low to circulate. with the engine running ,lift the hood and see if your sound is coming from a water pump or a pulley. The last thing is your dome light, it will be a door switch. try your passenger door and see if your light comes on.

1996 jeep grand cherokee no automatic interior lights


1. If you have the light switch in the wrong mode the lights will not operate when you open the door.

2. If the interior lights do not operate at all (ie you cannot switch them on and off manually)then you need to check the fuse for the interior lights.

3. When set to the correct mode, the interior lights will operate from a door operated switch so if the switch has failed the lights will either stay on or not operate at all when you open and close the door. Eventually these door switches fail with repeated use and need to be replaced. (Consider how many times the small door switch has been operated since 1996).

I changed the radio in my 97 civic and now the interior light does not work when the door is open.


Check the position of the light switch. Always on, off,
or with door open.

Jimmy electrical burning.


The wire has rubbed somewhere and is shorted to ground. Replace the wire from the door switch to the light, replace the fuse with one of the correct amperage and it should work. Disconnect the battery while you are replacing the wire.

1997 mercury cougar door stuck shut


Hi there I had a similar problem on a 98' ford explorer and replaced the door lock actuator and solved the problem in one shot. If you never worked in cars well it will be a little tricky but if you have little experience well then you have to remove the door panels carefully to avoid damaging any plastic hold screws, once removed try to aceess the door lock from the panel to get it open since it is easier to work. Now with the door open and window up then remove the mounting brackets of the window in order to get to the lock actuator. It is hold by two only one screw just remove the wire hook up and remove actuator. install new one and put everything back good luck..
