SOURCE: HOW DO I CHANGE THE WATER PUMP ON A 99 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE ?

At least you have the 4 liter 6. Once you get all the **** out of the way its like replacing a W/P on an "old school" engine, very much like a Ford or Chevy straight 6. 1) Remove radiator top retainer (the metal U that looks like its the top of the radiator (#13 or 14mm sockets I think). 2) To completely get if off you also have to remove the grill (4-6 phillips screws), then 3) unbolt it from the tubular bumper retainers underneath the grill. 4) DO NOT remove the latch cable - no need. 5) Remove the top bolts holding down the fan shroud. Lift the shroud off its bottom "tabs" and push over the fan. 6) Using #10mm socket remove fan from fan clutch, then remove bolts holding fan clutch onto water pump pulley. 7) Pull out shroud, then fan, then fan clutch. Be very patient, lots of wiggling may be needed. 8) Locate belt tensioner on idler puller below the Power steering pump. Losen very little the pulleys center bolt (10mm), then use a 10mm w/entension to losen the pulley's tension (use counter clockwise/normal rotation to losen). 9) Draw a diagram of the belt routing - you will Never remember it correctly otherwise. 10) Tap the w/p pully and pull if off - do not hit radiator fins! 11) Drain the radiator (clockwise/right rotation opens petoc from factory radiators - counterclock used on aftermaket rads). 12) Remove lower raditor hose at radiator, then at pump (it will be a challenge). 13) Remove upper radiator hose from rad and from thermostat housing. 14) losen the Rubber heater hose from the metal hose screwed into the W/P. 15) Remove 4 bolts from W/P (13 or 14mm I think). The one at the 4oclock position is longer than the others. One is hidden at 6oclock.
16) Remove 2 bolts (14-15mm??) on bottom of Power Steering mount - these go through the W/P case to the block. You may also need to losen the top PS bolts so the PS Bracket can be loose at the W/P case. 17) Wiggle the W/P out from under the PS bracket. and pull off. (16b if needed, remove the upper idler pulley near the A/C unit.) 18) Remove the Thermostat (upper hose return) housing. Scrape off old gasket. Replace with 160deg or 190deg thermostat. Use silicone on gasket. 19) Carefully use a 17 or 19mm box wrench to remove the metal heater hose return line from the upper part of the old water pump. Coat threads with spark plug thread antiseize and screw onto new W/P. 20) Install new W/P gasket w/silcone, be careful to Not block the water holes. 21) Slide W/P under the P/S bracket and jiggle into place. Hand thread one of the top bolts to hold the W/P in place. 22) Insert the P/S bracket bolts and lightly tighten. 23) Jiggle W/P around and insert other bolts, start with the 6oc hidden bolt. Add remaining bolts and tighten to 25 or 250?ftlb (about 3/4 past socket-snug). 24) Tighten ALL P/S bolts. 25) Adjust metal heater pipe. Reinstall rubber heater hose. 26) Reinstall W/P pulley and Fan clutch, and upper idler if it was removed. 27) Thread NEW Belt on pulleys. 28) Tighten tension on idler. Tighten idler axle bolt. 29) Install lower rad hose. 30) Slide shroud over pulleys. 31) Install fan on clutch. 32) Clip shroud retainer bolt mounts back on top of radiator. 33) Install shroud. 34) Connect upper hose. 35) Reinstall radiator retainer. 36) Bolt retainer to Tubular bumper mounts. 37) Reinstall grill. 38) Wonder where the extra bolts etc are supposed to go. 39) Cuss - pray -cuss - pray. 40 ) sip some beer. 41) carefully inspect everything to ensure its back to the way it looked before (several pictures from a digital camera taken during the disassembly will help). 42) Close the rad petok. 43) Add 1 gallons of antifreeze. 44) Start engine and add another gallon of A/F. 45) Turn heater controls to HOT inside (no need for fan). 46) Water guage should show 180 to 210F. 47) Add 1 gallon of water. 48) Install New 18PSI rad cap. 49) Turn off engine and add water or A/F to overflow tank. 50) 1 hour later open Cap to see if level has settled. Add Water as needed to fill rad.

SOURCE: 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Brake light problem

You can adjust the switch by putting your thumbs on either side of the switch plunger and pushing toward the brake lever. The switch shaft will ratchet into the new position which is will then be depressed by the brake lever when it is the brake is not being depressed.

SOURCE: 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Keeps stalling, engine

P0505 means the whole Idle Control system, not only the IAM. Check all related sensors (i.e. crankshaft sensor). Check with a voltmeter direct at the connector of the IAM if you get any signal. Remove the IAM from the TB, connect him, let someone switch your ignition key to ON. The IAM need to drive in/out for a short time to find the right position. Hold the IAM near a hard part, that they cant drive out completely! If IAM works fine, check the fuel pressure, check and clean your TB ( if not done yet). If that doesn't work, come back again please

SOURCE: Where is the camshaft sensor located on my 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee

If you still have a cap rotor and ignition wires, it's inside the distributor. If not, it is the part where the distributor used to be (center rear of the engine behind the intake manifold)

More than likely one of your crash sensors has corrosion or has moisture intrusion. Have light reset at any good shop or the dealer - note if light comes back on then you'll need to have your system looked at.

Where is the computer reset located on a 1996 jeep grand cherokee


There is not a reset ECM (Engine Control Module) button ; a soft reset could be disconnecting negative battery cable few minutes. If your "check engine" light come on again, some OBD fault code is stored there and first will need solve it in order to turn off this warning light.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

What ti do when the check engine light jeep grand cherokee 99 comes on? Also have the Air Bag light on too - is it a sensor issue and can i drive safely with the lights on?


The check engine light may not be a big deal if your Jeep is running OK. The bad news is that the airbag light has to be taken seriously.

It is normal for the airbag light to come on when you start your car and then go off in a few seconds, when the system is performing a self-test .When your airbag light stays on, it means that the circuit that controls airbag deployment has detected a problem. You need to have this looked at by a good mechanic, or preferably a Jeep dealer as soon as possible. It is possible that when there is a problem with the airbag circuitry that it can deploy without warning and can cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

I do not recommend that you try to work on any airbag system yourself. The actuators contain small explosive charges that can seriously injure or even kill you. The system is designed to store an electrical charge and airbags can be set off even with the car battery removed. If you set your airbag off and are fortunate enough to not get hurt, replacing it will cause enough pain- $2000 is not unusual.

As far as the check engine light goes.... under the fusebox (near the drivers left knee area) you should see an electrical connector. You can go to any good auto parts store and ask to borrow their ECM analyzer- a handheld device that plugs into that connector and will allow you to read the computer codes that are turning on your check engine light. Just follow the instructions that come with the analyzer.

If you get an ambiguous reading like "factory code" chances are that it is fuel related and changing your brand or grade of gas will usually fix it. While you have the ECM analyzer connected, you can clear the codes and see if the light comes back.

I have a 2001 Grand Cherokee and during the winter, one certain brand of gas will cause the check engine light to come on in the winter. This is because federal and state clean air laws require that in winter months, the gas formulation be changed to help reduce emissions... and different brands actually DO have different formulations. Try a different brand gas for a while. Also, if your Jeep has the "straight six" engine, it is very important that you always run only regular grade- this engine (IMHO one of the best engines ever made!) does not like higher octane fuel and using mid-grade, or especially premium, will give you a check engine light, along with reduced gas mileage.

Air bag warning light


Have Chrysler Jeep check this out for you - this can be a serious problem if not checked out. If maybe that your airbag could have been malfuctioned somehow or disployed and not put back properly. Best to have the dealer check it out. This is what I read in my 1999 Jeep manual on the airbag issues. Good luck.

Srs airbag light is on on my 99 pontiac grand prix


If the seat belt light comes on intermittently with the belt buckled, it may have a bad switch in the buckle or a loose connection @ the switch. This may also set a diagnostic trouble code in the srs control module & keep the srs airbag light on.
