Question about 2004 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

3 issues that seem to be related: 1. AC/heating fan does not work on any level. 2. back-up lights do not work. 3. airbag light is always on. on the (very) few occasions when they have worked, all 3 have worked (and quit working) at the same time. now, none have worked in several months. any ideas?

    I had the same problem. The issue seems to be in the ignition switch. If you turn the key slightly clockwise you will hear the blower kick in and the airbag light will turn off. I did this with the engine off first, then turned the engine on when the airbag light went off. Here's a link to where I found a partial fix for the problem. I'm thinking of swapping out the ignition with a new one seems to have a short in it.

Sounds like you have had a lot of fun with this rig
#1 - replace the stereo - that's cheaper than sending yours out for repair.
#2 - Make sure your cooling system is full. You can get an air lock/bubble in the heater core that is really difficult to resolve sometimes. When the cooling system starts to get low on coolant - the heater core is the first to get starved. Physically feel the temperature of the heater hoses at the firewall - they should both be hot - if one is hot and the other not - there is a restriction in the heater core. If neither are hot - your coolant level is probably low. With the engine running you can pinch the upper radiator hose which should force flow through the heater core. Try those things - if you get sufficient heat from other modes - i.e. DEF VENT then your coolant level is not an issue. your controls are your problem - and is this a Auto Temp control system (digital) or manual?
#3 sounds like the ground circuit for Pass side Brake light is not sufficient. Works OK until the park light is turned on. I presume a bulb from the drivers side that worked ok doesn't on the pass side (known good bulb) - the ground circuit needs repair.
#4 the illumination issue - Dash lights/buttons/switches - all those should illuminate together (dimmer controlled)
Radio buttons - refer to #1
Console symbols - wiring connections for the bulbs
Dome lights working ok from rear doors and not the front - probably issues with the front door switches
that's a lot of different things for one car

I have 2003 CORROLA 1.6 VVTI T3, DASBOARD, AC NOT WORKING


seems? (why guess?) (fuses are black/white deal)
3 non related systems failed, hummmmm
check fuses with a walfart $10 meter, on low OHMS> Rx1.
  1. 0 ohms is good
  2. infinity is bad.
fuses that look good, can in fact be bad. (hair line cracks)
so test them and avoid, SEEMS?
Rear glass heater is a hot wire heater.
if it has 12vdc to the wire and no heat the grid is bad (open)
if no 12v there, then the relay/fuse or switch to it is bad,
the voltmeter finds this in 5min work.
Hazard not working (but are blinkers> dead? on either sided?)
again fuses.
Dash board dead, (cluster) FUSES.

A.C. not working (the FSM and alldata.com cover this)
1: fuse , check fuese
2: if heater fan is dead, so will be AC.
3: A/C clutch not engaging for 6 reasons , ask. for list of tests.
all tests are in the FSM. BTW.

my wild guess, is you are working on car that has not run
right for a long time? accumulated, issues?

The air is not cool when idling, it blows warm. Also the setting 1 and 2 doesnt work, only 3 and for makes air blow.


Sounds like 2 different problems here. The ac gets warm when standing idle, is most likely the under hood fan not kicking on when ac is on. This may be a fuse issue or a relay. When ac is on, the fan should be on all the time. Relay maybe in an electrical box under the hood. Unplug the fan and test for power with a test light to see if the fan has power when ac is "on".

The inside fan not working on levels 1& 2 is likely the voltage ballast issue. this is an electrical block which controls voltage to change fan speeds. Usually found under the passenger side dash, right in the air flow comming from the fan and inside the air flow housing. Usually held in by 2 or 3 screws with a connector and 3-4 wires sticking out. this should be under $20 to buy and quite easy to change, if you can find it. Try behind glove box etc. Do not test the new one without it being in place, as it may burn out very quickly without the air flow to cool it.
Good luck

Your blower speed resistor has gone bad and needs to be replaced. You can pick one up at Auto Zone or Parts Source with the step by step instructions to getting the resistor replaced with common tools.

It is located under the glove box, way in the back of the passenger foot area. You'll need to remove 2 screws with a 7mm socket, and remove the plastic cover that covers the blower motor and another component box that I think controls the passenger airbag. After removing the plastic cover you'll need to side that passenger airbag module to the right so it pop off its mounting bracket and move it out of the way. That will give a better view of the blower motor. I highly recommend you also remove the blower motor itself because the Blower Motor Resistor is located behind it. I think you'll need a 5mm or 5.5mm socket to remove the 3 screws that hold in place the blower motor and 2 more screws for the Blower Motor Resistor... It's a cramped location to work in but if you have all the tools and enough lighting then it shouldn't take more than 30-60 minutes to do. The Blower Motor Resistor costs about $19-$25. Good luck

Airbag light GMC Yukon


I had the same problem in a way. My airbag light would come on and then go off. The airbag connections in the steering wheel got stuck somehow. It only can rotate lke 3 and 1/2 times and over the years mine just got stuck. (my yukon has over 200000 miles) All i did was press on the horn and wiggle the horn cover for about 20 seconds. I havent had a problem since.

Hi,

In my country, most overheating issues on Volkswagen models are resolved by:
  • entirely removing the thermostat (not applicable in cold regions);
  • wiring the fan to switch on once the engine is running (with or without the A/C or heater being turned on);
  • replacing the radiator thermal switch for the fan to a lower temp.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
