Question about 2001 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Cherokee 2.4 sport petrol engine Jeep. Recently the oil warning light ( red) on the dash board stays permanantly on. The oil level checks OK and the engine appears to be running OK. Could it be the oil pressure switch, if so where is it located on the car. thanks

Oil pressure sending unit should be located somewhere near the oil filter. check that the wire is attached to it and is not grounded. If engine is not making any tapping noises chances are that the sender is bad. If after changing it, the problem persists, put a mechanical gauge on the system (attach where sender is) and read actual oil pressure (should be no lower than 15psi when hot but I prefer better than 20 hot at idle, 40-50 running at 2000rpm)

Engine management light will not switch off on 2002 Jeep Cherokee. On starting, light will go off for short while and then stay on permanently. Tested on diagnostics 2 occasions, showing no code. Vehicle...


Some vehicles have a sensor that turns this light on at a certain milage and it really means nothing, the dealer should be able to remove the light for a charge.Hope this helps and Thank You for asking.

Engine light on/Oil Gauge on stays on high


Any waranties left? Is oil full? Any noises from engine? Did you put a mechanical gauge on it and check "real" oil pressure? (I would not drive it 'till I was sure about actual oil pressure!!)
