1996 Jeep Grand Laredo

Hi, I just recently bought a 1996 Grand Jeep Laredo (2nd Hand of course), since I bought it I have had a few problems. When A/C is on going up hills it changes airflow from face to w/screen, traveling at 100km then overtaking with foot to floor it gets to 120 then cuts out unless you don’t put your foot to the floor, rear wiper was working then didn’t but now it is again same as with the horn, now if I don’t drive for 2 days my brand new 13 plate battery is flat, also now my A/C isn't working. Before the last flat battery when I turned the ignition I would get a crackle like the sound of a short circuit before I got to the next ignition position. I was wondering if you could shed some light on the problems and give me an indication of the future problems that I might encounter so I can be prepared for them. Thanking you in advance.

Something could be draining the battery when the car is off.
Make sure no lights are left on.
Does it have lighted mirrors in the sun visor that are on?
Your problem with the a/c vents is vacuum. The car is losing it's vacuum supply and is defaulting to the defroster.
Check the vacuum resovoir.

I just bought my son a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. The battery and alternator were both recently replaced by the previous owner. He drove the car 2 days no problem. Today the battery was draining as...


the alternator failed this is usually a chrylser and jeep dodge isue the bearing fails and the alternator quits charging the if the light comes on its usually alternator but on some jeeps the light dosent come on because it reads that it is charging

the other thing that it could be is the battery shot on ya the only thing you can do to see if its a good battery do a battery acid test

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X4 4.0L. Just recently bought and there's a popping noise in the front and when turning sharply it's like the wheels lock and the jeep refuses to move and it's also...


sounds like a bad cv joint in one (or both) of the front axles. is the popping sound more prevalent when in reverse, with the wheel turned? if so, i'd assume that it is a bad cv joint and one or both front axles will need to be replaced.

Try gently tapping the starter motor with a hammer or bar. There may be a bad contact in the sollenoid or the starter motor brushes worn to their limit. Tapping may give you a tempory fix if the problem lies in the starter motor.
