Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
My jeep is a four door. It has Power locks as well as a rocker style interior lock to manually lock it. The Right Rear door's rocker lock just wobbles, and doesnt do anything. The power lock buttons work, as does the lock when activated via power lock, so basically, only when power lock button is pressed does the door lock. It almost seems as if the rocker is disconnected. How do I fix this?
Now, the rocker locks in both front doors work..sometimes. They are sometimes extremely difficult to press, and only sometimes lock the door. The power locks move the rockers, but only sometimes lock the front doors. How do I fix this?
I have both the Haynes and Chilton Manual, but they only touch on the power locks and say nothing regarding the interior rocker locks. The manuals only talk about the external key locks, which do work well by the way.
Open the door panels and lube all of your lock mechanisms. They tend to get stuck and it harms the locking motor. After I lube mine up, they freely move. Just spray some lithium grease and manually lock and unlock the door with the rocker until it moves very easily. You'll probably have to do this once a year like I do.
