I had the same problem with my 99.  It was the locking mechanicsm and it just needed to be tightened down.  If I remember correctly it was a T-bit or star bit not a allen wrench or screw driver.  Hope this helps.

I have recently had to open my 93 Grande Jeep Cherokee passenger side door from the inside. I was investigating it to see if the mechanism that holds the door shut needed to be oiled and I flipped it down...


To re-align the catch to allow the door to close...be sure to pull the inside door release first...also check the mechanism on your drivers door...this should help you see it is re-aligned for proper closing...Hope this helps.

Jeep cherokee alarm keeps goin off til battery dies. What can cause this


is it a factory alarm?..did u check all of the little hood trunk and door switches to make sure that they are opening and closing freely?..perhaps one of them is sticking?....I had a problem with the factory alarm on my 1993 jeep grand cherokee.the anti theft would kick in, shut off my fuel pump..it ended up being the actual module which is screwed in behind the glove box. I bought a used one at the auto wrecker..and it solved all my issues...start with the easy and cheap or free stuff 1st...look for the obvious which would be, that one of those switches i mentioned is not closing all the way, when doors, hood etc are closed

Rear passenger door will not open


If the door won't open from either the inside or outside than there is a problem with the latch assembly or alignment. You can use the other rear door to see how the child lock works. Meanwhile, you'll have to remove the door panel on the right rear door from inside the vehicle. Then you can reach inside with a screwdriver and flashlight and work the latch free. Once you get it open you can further diagnose if it is alignment or a faulty latch assembly. It's not going to be easy getting the door panel off from inside or working the latch to release. I hope this helps.

The drivers side door won't close.


open the door , look at the latch on the door , as it get older and non lubricated , the latch can stick in the locked position , i,m going to draw a picture .

when the door is open it should look like the picture , i suggest your door is in the closed position and why it bounces off as you say , take a , lets say a screw driver stick it in where the little lever thats sticking up , push the door open button on the outside door handle , pry that lever forward , if successful try it , and lubricate it , hope my barbaric picture gets the point across .

Closeing my back drivers side door


If the door itself will not stay closed then it is not the power locks but the latch that is malfunctioning, the locks only allow or disallow the latch from opening when you try to open the door.  Thoroughly lubricate the latch mechanism on the door with something like WD-40 and inspect it for damage, make sure the bolts that hold the latch within the door are tight and are aligned correctly.  After you lubricate it, close and open the door to work the lubricant in.  Also if you have child lock switches on the door, make sure the switch is fully off or on.  If all else fails then the handle/latch mechanism may need to be replaced.

You need to turn the feature of last door closed. This located above the rear view mirror. Just push one the button that will lead you to the feature of last door open to be lock. Unlock and save the changes. It is also in your manual if you have them.

Turning problems


My Answer:

The one thing you never mentioned was if you had your Jeep SUV Front-end Aligned after you had the new tires installed?

I'm guessing/hoping you did???

Where did you have the work done at? Be specific here!

Was it a 2-wheel or 4-wheel alignment if that applies here? Big difference it was done RIGHT or if it was done WRONG? That's just maybe part of the problem though if it was indeed MIS-ALIGNED. When you say PULLING - that is a BIG CLUE right there of a possible MIS-ALIGNMENT!!

Not sure what size tires you had on it originally or which size new tires you had put on, but if the new tires were over-sized then you are rubbing on the mainframe or possibly rubbing the front fender wells??

This has happened before, as sometimes they don't pull the right size tires from stock, and then don't double check them before mounting them.

Esp when you are running bigger rims and lower profile tires, which might be your case, as you didn't say anything to the contrary.

If we're talking about STOCK tires for STOCK tires here then your driver side door decal will state the factory installed tires as to their proper size. Any modification to that as to bigger rims and lower profile tires has to be done to factory recommended specs. Lets hope so anyway!

If I were you I would be double checking everything, as to what was actually done, and as to what tires, etc were put on your SUV.

The clue to your problem lies right there to start with! After all nothing was mentioned about any "pulling" before you had the new tires put on.

Here's one last big clue as to if you actually got a "bad alignment" on your Jeep SUV.

Have someone else drive behind you on an empty straight flat street (or else have someone else drive your Jeep and you follow behind about 4 to 5 car lengths back). If your Jeep's body is trying to track crooked (as if on an angle diagonal to straight ahead) as the tires are trying to track straight ahead - then you definitely just got a bummer mis-alignment!

I'm putting my money this is the case, as I've seen it so many times it's not funny.

It called a "shade tree alignment" and for good reason.

Let me know I was right?
