Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee's air conditioner has to be re-charged once a year. Why is this? When it gets charged its cold for a few months then it slowly loses its bang and is not cold at all after about a year.

It has a leak somewhere, buy or have the system recharged with dye, you will need an ultra violet light to detect the dye, they sell the whole kit at autozones.

2003 jeep grand cherokee heater problem

Jeep Grand Cherokee is notorious for broken blend-air doors. This is the door inside the A/C-heater housing that switches the air from hot to cold. You must remove the dash to repair it.

A/C on 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee is not very cold

the refrigerant can be recoverd by the shop. discuss the cost with them and explain that you're going to do work yourself. and would like them to recover it, and once repairs are done, evacuate and charge the system. however, once the system is empty, i would replace the accumulator and orifice tube, or the receiver/dryer and expansion valve. which ever your car has. pag oil should also be added to the system. 2-4 oz should do. this can be done when re-charging.

do not rule out the blend door

1997 Jeep Garnd Cherokee had battery go dead. Once boosted it runs for a few seconds and quits. Also gauges are not working even during the few seconds when it runs. Any ideas ????

Replace the battery if it is at least 4 years old. The computers will not power up if it does not have suficent voltage. put a new battery in it and check the charging system.

Air conditioner only works while moving. The AC stops cooling when stopped and idleing. Anyone know what causes this?

Your freon level is low, and not circulating on slow compressor speeds. Stop by any shop that has a sign stating they work on a/c and they can recharge it for you in a few minutes. Here where I live they charge about $20.00 labor plus a charge for the freon they put in, they sell it by the pound.
