I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country Inline six. It wont start. It tries to turn over but wont start. The distributor cap, starter, and ignition coil has been replaced. We got a code reader and it read 0...

Remove the distributor cao and replace the ignition module. Follow the wires coming from the outside to the inside of the distributor, this is the piece you need to replace.

I have a bearing sound coming from my 1996 neon. Not sure if its the altenator because i did replace it about a year and a hlf ago with one from the junk yard. The noise seems to go away when you rev it...

When you buy a reman Alt ,you may not get new bearings

You can be rest assured your salvage yard piece is the issue

Put a screw driver on it, and put to your ear

Standing out for a year now no start

If you didn't start it for a year or turn the engine over you may have a seized engine. Not a fun thing as there is no easy way to un-seize it.
You can try removing the spark plugs and spraying a small amount of penetrating oil in each cylinder but the truth is, if the cylinders sat long enough to rust and freeze up like that, you would most likely do more damage to the engine. Best option. Put a socket on the harmonic balancer nut and use a breaker bar to try and turn the motor, if it turns you have another issue if it doesn't turn you will need to rebuild the motor.

Need to find the module for the electric seat so I can move the seat back an fourth on the drivers side for my park avenue 1996 Can't find them at the dealers.

Have you check a salvage/junk yard.

You probably wont find a new one as GM stops alot of part support for vehicles after they are 10 years old.

Will not start

It could be a timing belt issue, or your starter is no good... taking too much power.
