Go to your local auto parts store and tell them what you need and they can give you a belt so you can bypass your ac pump.

SOURCE: My sunroof is stuck open on my 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo? Would it be a fuse? If so, how do you change it?

Check the fuses under the dash on the drivers side, next to the steering column. There should be a fuse puller on the fuse box door. Also a chart of which fuses at what so you can go to the proper fuse. Good luck, Please let me know if this is the solution to your problem.

SOURCE: shift indicator light 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

There are two parts to it, a voltage resistor, and the EL panel itself.

You need to remove the console first. There are 2 screws under the front rubber pad, two under the cup holder, two in the bin. Remove those six first, take the storage bin out, then slide the rear cupholder out, remove the two screws under the cup holder, and one in front of it.

There are a total of 6 flat screws, and 3 self tapping screws you have removed.

Put the parking brake on, shift the tranny to N, and the transfer case to the middle position if equipped.

Remove the entire console. Slide the shifter beezel as far up vertically as you can. There are 4 clips you ned to remove to do it.
You will see a blue and black wire running into the back. Follow those wires to the resistor. You will see a transparent EL panel attatched to the resistor by two clips.

Usually, one or both of these clips has come loose, causing the light to work intermittantly. Clip them back on, and turn on the headlights to confirm that the light works correctly now.

Re-install everything in the opposite order.

1996 jeep cherokee sport with 4.0 does not have a tensioner on the fan belt. How do you change it?


One of the idler pulleys has a built in spring loaded tensioner. You have to use a ratchet to turn it, which relieves tension on the belt while removing and also when replacing the belt.

If you need more details about youe Jeep ZJ Grand Cherokee, can check this documents about Repair Manual: Grand Cherokee 1993-1998 FSM

To get out, it's easy and doesn't require a prybar.
  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

I lost the top pulley for the fan belt, is that the tension pulley.


It really depends on your engine. If you have the straight 6 cylinder and it's the pulley that bolts to the alternator bracket then it's the idler pulley. If you have a different engine I can tell you.

How to adjust de belt to grand cherokee 8 cilinders 4.7


  1. Step 1 Find the belt tensioner pulley. The tensioner pulley is generally between the crankshaft and a component toward the top of the hood area.
  2. Step 2 Check the belt routing so you know how to replace the belt. You may be able to find a belt routing diagram on a decal on the fan shroud or in support documentation. Otherwise, make you own sketch for reference.
  3. Step 3 Rotate the belt tensioner pulley, using the wrench, to and relieve tension on the belt.
  4. Step 4 Slip off the old belt and slowly release the tensioner pulley.
  5. Step 5 Use your belt routing diagram to put the new belt onto all of the pulleys. Pay close attention to the water pump pulley, as incorrect routing can cause the water pump to run backwards and overheat.
  6. Step 6 Make sure the belt is correctly routed and seated on all pulleys. Rotate the tensioner again to allow for the belt to slip onto all pulleys and then release the tensioner again to regain correct tension on the belt.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE IDLER PULLEY?


It is as simple as removing the nut and pulling it off and sliding the new one on. Once you get it back replace the belt and set it to the correct tension. It is as simple as that. Without a belt tension gauge a good rule of thumb is about 1 inch of deflection at the longest belt run.
On your engine it's 1 inch between the power steering pump and the air conditioner compressor.

Hi i have a 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo do i turn the screw counter clockwise on the tensioner pulley to remove


The opposite direction the pulley turns. However, if you are trying to get the serpentine belt on or off, this will help. It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

2000 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 liter engine timing belt replacement


If you have the same pulley arrangement that most 4.0 engines have that pulley is an idler not a tensioner. Your power steering pump has a pivot bolt, and a slide under the pump. You adjust belt tension using the pump.
