Knocking sound under hood of 97 jeep


First I was going to say the valves were damaged from the heat or lack of oil, but that would not make sense if the steering wheel is turned.
The power steering is about the only thing affected by the steering wheel.
I would take a piece of heater hose and use it as a stethoscope to listen around the pulleys for the noise with someone turning the wheel.

When I turn on the radio it plays for a couple minutes but then it shuts off. It then won't turn back on. Its all stock. Any ideas how to fix this?


That radio is easily removable. check power at the power connections and if they are good, either replace with a new aftermarket unit of your choice (also buy adapter harness and face plate adapter to help with the install) or, get a used radio from any scrapyard.
If you need removal instructions, you can get that in any haynes or chilton manual. (and, you can use the manual to repair other problems as well!!)

Dodge radio starts then shuts off


Hi Davis,

I had the same problem with Dodge Grand Caravan as well. I have a 2001 GCV and these radios go out all the time, plus each speaker has separate amps which some speaker will stop working. You will need a new stereo, however the dealership will charge you over $350 for the same replacement. I chose to go to BestBuy and buy a new Stereo for around $100 which has iPod connections which is a plus.
Next problem!!! Since each speaker has its own amp, in order to get the new stereo to work, I had to install a relay by tapping into the passenger side kicker panel master amp power supply to bypass the chip. Best Buy guy will know what to do. I suggest install the stereo yourself with a kit and go back to install an amp bypass relay switch. Hope that helps.

Stock Stereos **** and Dodge make is difficult to go aftermarket.....Good Luck

Alarm goes off for no reason. 97 Jeep grand Cherokee.


There is a security system built-in to the Jeep Grand Cherokee during these years. The reason the alarm goes off is because of a change in the electrical system (like shutting a door) that triggers the alarm. To stop the alarm, either disarm with the remote or unlock the door from the outside with the key. This will shutoff the alarm.

I HAVE A 94 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE PUTTING A PIONEER DEH-1900MP STEREO IN AND WHEN I SHUT IT OFF THE STEREO WONT SAVE THE PRESET STATIONS


the problem is you dont have the battery wire on the radio hooked up to a 12v constant. it sounds like you have to take the battery wire of the radio and hook it up to a wire that stays 12v all the time even when the car is off.
