Electrical i have 1999 jeep cherokee sport. 112,000 miles. stalls out at idle. happends every so often but starts right up. also blower motor cuts out at high position, also airbag,checkeng light comes on and rpm and mph goes out then goes back to normal. happends every so often.because it doesnt happen all the time, mechanics say wait for a failure to bring in for service. steering wheel lock doesnt work, and i suspect that not all of the dash check lights come on like seatbelt light comes on then goes out. i love my jeep but i think its haunted. any help is appreciated tnx.

It sounds as thought you have a short, or shorts in the electrical system. In all honesty, you are not likely to get a good answer online. I would have to look at the vehicle and trace the wiring to find the problem. A few things to check out first though. As basic as it seems, check the battery cables. Clean the battery terminals and cables, and check the other end of the wires where they hook to ground and to the starter. It sounds like your problem is more complex then that, but I've seen bad cables cause a lot of strange problems before.

If you take it to someone to fix, they are likely to charge you by the hour to diagnose the problem, which means you want to make sure you take it to someone who knows what they are doing. A good Chrysler 5 star dealership should have at least one good electrical guy. If you take it to an independent shop, you might pay less per hour, but likely more overall.

Jeep stalls


try doing the procedure below, should cure the problem.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

1999 Jeep Cherokee sport/air vents do not blow out cold or hot while it is on


this sounds like the recirculation door in the heater box is broken and this is a difficult and can be an expensive repair as the dash has to be removed for access. a quick check for this is if you release the glove box and let it hang you will see the heater box if you reach up to the left top you will feel a grid and the recirc flap is housed there you can operate the blower and hot and cold and see if flap moves
