    I don't know I just bought it and got home and found out that the latch dose not "click" and close all the way. I am asumming that it is broken, the biger problem is that when I go over a bump the window bounces.

Rear hatch window won't close

First make sure the latch isn't already closed. If so, have some one hit the button as you pull it open with a screwdriver. If it is open and won't latch. Your looking at replacing the door module. Being a 2002, it could be the BCM.

Rear window wont latch closed

This can probably be fixed by using WD40 to loosen the locking mechanism. If this does not work then the mechanism will need to be replaced.

97 jeep cj windows and wipers stopped working fuses are ok

97 wrangler right? CJ ended in 86 (last year)
97 TJ, you mean, or was posting to Cherokee correct all along./?????
The Chrysler Corporation bought out AMC in 1987, shortly after the Jeep CJ was replaced with the AMC-designed Jeep Wrangler or YJ.

test the fuse, looking only finds the ones blow to H3LL
they can in fact just crack a bit. and are in fact bad.
use any DMM or any ohmmeter, "resistance Rx1 or RX2 range , low range) 0 ohms good, , infinity bad.
only that works. every time.
lets read the FSM together.
wipers first. USA not export.
Front wiper not rear. ok>?
page 8w-53 wiper schematic.

fuse 2 and 3 must be good.
then fuse 14 front wiper ,fuse 12 is rear
if the fuses are good, (truely) we never ohm fuses we use VOLTS
on both sides of fuse, volts never lies.
then what is bad, easy bad wiper switch, motor or ground to motor.
the voltmeter again wins the toss and if no 12vdc to motor
then the switch or wire are bad.
if you have 12v to motor then motor is bad , if ground to motor is no cut.

now windows. what windows, are then not crank windows or zipper windows?

i think you posted wrong car,,

97 f150 dome and rear cargo lights stay on. how do i fix this

Chances are this is a case of a dirty door ajar switch, which is part of of the door latch.

The way to check ( fix ) this is to spray down the latch liberally and close open the door a few times.

It might take 2 or 3 cycles of this to get the door ajar switch to start working again.

There is a thread in the electrical forum at F150online that covers this, with pictures of where to spray the WD-40 if it is not clear.

97 Jeep Gnd Cherokee showing 'rear door ajar when liftgate closed

Inside the latch is 2 strips and a pin. the pin pushes the strips together. these strips bend and corrode the latch might not be turning to fully closed then the pin won't close the contacts. Spray Graphite lube in and work the latch with a screwdriver There is a plastic coating that might have worn thru on the latch finger The sensor is there for your safety Caravan's would eject passengers if latch is not secure. But that said bypass if all else fails.

Rear window will not close

use small box wrench and remove the catch attached to the window. insert 2 washers over each of the 2 connecting bolts ..4 washers required min 2 per side. re attach window catch. This should move the catch forward ehough to depress the locking mechanism.... it worked perfect on my 02 Liberty.

97 ford 4x4 expedition rear differential makes a winding noise

Yes this can be fixed. Sounds like your spider gears have decided to cause you problems. If you can't do the repairs yourself take it to a good gear shop. They can replace the shims and or bearings. Do not attempt this if you know nothing about setting up gears. Don't waste your money by purchasing a used differential. Like I said a good gear shop can do this for you. Shouldn't cost to much.

I have a 97 Jeep Grande Cherokee, my rear hatch is close but I get an message telling me that rear hatch isn't close, in which it keeps my interior lights on and drains my battery

check the sensors and clean them with steel wool. the hatch may not be close to each other so check that as well you may have to loosen them up and tighten them again but try that first
