1997 jeep grand cherokee check gauges light comes on when the vehicle is cold about a mile down the road, the charge gauge to be precise. After the car is pulled over, the engine is shutdown and resta

Engine was just replaced about 2000 miles ago. The car drives great, even with the light on. The first time it happened I brought it right back home and let the engine run while I removed the positive battery cable to see if the engine would die, but she kept running just fine.

There would have been enough induced voltage flying back through the electrical system to keep the motor running.This is not always a good test.A little bit more explanation would be helpful.Does that check gauge remain on or off while driving normally?When it goes off or on does it do it spasmodically or does it do it until you restart the engine?Regards

Crankshaft Position Sensor most likely, that's what it was with me. It is a pain to change so good luck. If that does not work you may look into: Camshaft Sensor, Fuel Pump/Filter, Injectors

Check VSS Vehicule Speed Sensor wire may be corroted, bad connection or faulty; if 2wd the adaptor is located on the extension housing of the transmission (left side)
if 4wd look on transfer case extension (left side)

Good luck

My 96 jeep cherokee will start for a couple sec. then shut down my cehck engine light do not come on or none of my gauges can anyone help me


The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. On some vehicles require a OBD2 code scanner for the diagnosis. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee temp gauge high when heat is on


If your "check engine" light is turn on, I suggest scanned the PCM to know exactly what fault code is stored there. Additionally, could be some problem with the "temp sending unit".

Try to change out the CTS or coolant temperature sensor to see if that rectifies the gauge problem. If the engine doesn't seem to boilover or malfunction, it may very well be a false high heat indicator problem. in the electronic side of the coolant system.

I'm receiving a check gauges warning light on my 00 Jeep Grn Cher


This might be a result of an oxygen sensor. If you take the vehicle to a store like autozone, they will attach a diagnostic sensor to your vehicle at no charge, and then reset the unit, and be able to tell you what is going on. This is at no charge, so there is nothing to lose. I hope this helps.
