Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Transmition does not want to stop moving when brakes applied

When I am stopping. Periodically the Jeep will want to keep moving when I try to stop. If I continue to make the car stop the engine will cut out when I quit moving. I have gotten in the habit of putting it in neutral when this happens so it does not cut out. Is that good for it? Does this mean my transmission is going out shortly or just needs some tweaking?

Likely the overdrive portion of your torque converter has failed and is not unlocking. A trans shop can tell you lif this is a control solenoid or converter problem. Yes, it is not good for the transmission.

How to stop the squeaking in the rear of my jeep?


The noise could be connected to the parking brake, or it could be a loose brake pad. When you engage the brakes the pads strike the rotors and then can not move around.

You may need to reset the system.

SEQUENCE ACTIVATED BY THE PARKING BRAKE .
1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply the parking brake Once Twice
Note: The system can be set - at time of installation - to require that the parking brake be applied once or twice.
If set for two actuations, pause one second between the two.
4. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
5. Exit the vehicle.
6. Within 60 seconds, close all doors.
7. The system will stop the engine and blink the parking brakes once to confirm the sequence is valid (vehicle is
ready for a remote start command).
SEQUENCE ACTIVATED BY THE REMOTE CONTROL
1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply parking brake.
4. Send the start command (Model 801 & 2101 - Model 903 ).
5. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
6. Exit the vehicle.
7. Using the remote, send the STOP command. The system will stop the engine and parking lights will blink once
to confirm that the sequence is valid (vehicle is ready for a remote start command).

Check the transmition fluid level if you know how. The Jeep should be looked at by a mechanic as soon as you can do it. Check for fluid on the undercarriage that may be from a transmition leak.

02 jeep grand Cherokee 6 cyl seems to idle too high. When stopping ,vehicle wants to keep pulling forward and have to apply brakes harder to stop vehicle. Very troublesome in snowy conditions.


check for vacum leaks using a spray bottle of water  when the idle frops you found it  if water wont work try starting fluid or carb cleaner  if useing these the idle may increase  when you find it  replace/repair the hose and see if its still happending  could also be a combination of things  idle speed control motor idle air control motor  mass air flow sensor  good luck

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls when brakes are applied


My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.
