The sensor may still be bad even with cleaning, as this is an electrical part, Since the sensor only checks for a low fluid level, it should just be like an on-off switch.  You can check it by removing the sensor from the Jeep and checking the resistance or continuity  across the 2 wires, is there is no change when you move the float up and down, then the sensor is probably bad.  If the continuity changes then the sensor is good, pointing to a deeper problem like a short in the electrical system or a bad body control module.  Good Luck!

We have changed the heater core,,, and thermostat.. it is still blowing cool air... i bought the coolant temperature sensor but dont know where it goes is it behind the dash board also?


Hi I have a 2002 JGC ltd and it is most likely your dampeners or louvers located behind your dual temp controls for driver and passenger sides that control the direction of air flow from air outside in, circulation, heat to windshield, centre and or to floor etc. I had a friend that had heat only to the passenger side and cold air blowing to driver side. He took it in and they replaced stuck dampeners and it was not cheap. I also had a 98 JGC ltd with the (coolant sensor is bad) warning coming on at least 4 to 5 times in a day and had heat. My problem is that my interior glass was fogging up, used glass defogger and stop leak. The problem was fixed but I still smell antifreeze because of the leak and it is irritating me. I may consider replacing the heater core and was wondering if you took it in or did it your self and how did you do it if you replaced it yourself, plus how much did it cost you?


Thanks.

Where do I add the windshield wiper fluid?


if you open the hood. Either on the left or right side near the headlight you should see a blue cap with a picture of a water spraying onto a windshield. remove blue plastic cap and just add until full(add windshield washer fluid only). The cap is blue covering a white plastic tube. good luck.
