1996 jeep grand Cherokee hood ajar warning display flashing on center of dash I cannot find hood switch is there one.


The Grand Cherokee has a warning display. The low washer fluid warning is a blinking windshield on the outline of the jeep in the center console display. It is confusing and could be easily falsely interpreted as a hood ajar warning. Fill the window washer and srr if warning goes away.

Coolant Sensor Bad Message on the Vehicle Information Center intermittently displayed on my 1996 Grand Cherokee. Have changed the Float Switch 3 times and no joy.


Check the inside of the plug and make sure that the prongs are in good condition. They may be corroded. Napa sells a replacement pigtail for the plug.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine Stays Cold


If you have verified that the dash temp gauge is correct by checking temp of coolant in radiator,yes your guess would be what i would change,the engine needs to have a 195degree thermostat in it.195 degrees is what the computer is programed to see as normal running temp.

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. My problem is that my C/T guage reads about three degrees higher on the outside temperature side than the actual temperature is. I realize that might be a minor problem,...


Are you talking about the coolant temperature (c/t) or the ambient temperature (outside temp). If you're refering to the ambient temperature the problem is the sensor is located under the radiator support and picks up the temperature off the pavement this is done intentionally to help detect icing conditions and unfortunatley there is no calibration for the sensor.

1996 jeep grand cherokee - overhead computer read out


All that info is actually relayed from the PCU which is expensive to replace.
Have a certified dealer look at it before you go replacing parts.
