Question about 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland
Recently my 2007 jeep grand cherokee died recieved two messages one of them saying "dtc report" and other " transmission temperature." I couldn't start, none of the locks worked, hazards didn't I mean it was completely dead nothing worked. Would anyone why this occured?
To bobby posting to 2009 post, why piggly back.. his car is not yours, nor same cause, causes are vast.
why can only be known if what is wrong is known , its not here.
first off if the trans overheated, most time the engine did first.
they are connected 2 ways thermally, metal and the cooler.
the cooler also heat the transmission .
so if the engine overeheats you can lay odds so did trans,
so lets forget all that.
dead car , stalled, or F.O.R.D found on road dead.
1: are all fuses good. we test them.
2: does the engine crank over?, if not? turn engine crank front bolt by hand see if its seized.
3: are battery lugs clean.? or green,
4: are head lamps bright (key is not needed to do that) are they.? radio work , dash lamps glow key on.(the row of warning lamps all glow on all cars key on, lamp self test its is) do they>?
5: does car crank with jumper cables (AAATOW)
6: if it dont jump start, the crank using the rules in your operators guide, it states how to crank in NEUTRAL, crank now? y/n./?
Neutral uses fresh contacts and will crank now.
(mostly virgin contact ,now) (TRS Switch failure)
if still no joy, then the key line is dead. all above fails.
if you hot wire the starter (ask) and that works then the KEY line is dead, if it does not crank now, the starter is dead (battery good)
, all this is standard partices.
green lugs is really first if ignored they are.
