The systems etc. are shutting down because the engine has died.Steering is heavy because all the vacuum assist has stopped.i.e. power steering.Why the engine is stopping is the main concern.Fuel,electrical.Its very hard to tell without some more info on how the motor is playing up.After a few stabs on the brakes I bet they go hard as well.(no power assist).A dealer can plug in the diagnostic and tell because it will have a memory of a problem that occured.Sorry I could not help you further

How do I align the clock spring in my 2005 jeep liberty. We changed the heater core and now my horn and cruise control does not work and my air bag light is on.


read the manual, yet, ?
the service manual. be like first ....
do you want dead air bags, in an accident.???
the clockspring runs many things.

step one is shut down air bags. or risk personal injury.
chapter 8L covers this and 8O, and is not trivial at all.
easy to take anything apart , harder back'
I have no idea at all what you dismantled, not a clue.
and is key to the answer, for sure.

installing CS is chapter 8O (oh as in Oscar) service manual.
INSTALL.
WARNING: To avoid personal injury or *****, on
vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the supplemental
restraint system before attempting any
steering wheel, steering column, airbag, occupant
classification system, seat belt tensioner, impact
sensor, or instrument panel component diagnosis
or service. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
(ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the
system capacitor to discharge before performing
further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure
way to disable the supplemental restraint system.
Failure to take the proper precautions could result
in accidental airbag deployment.
CAUTION: If the clockspring is not properly centered
in relation to the steering wheel, steering
shaft and steering gear, it may be damaged. (Refer
to 8 - ELECTRICAL/RESTRAINTS/CLOCKSPRING -
STANDARD PROCEDURE - CLOCKSPRING CENTERING).
Service replacement clocksprings are
shipped pre-centered, with the release button
engaged (raised) and a molded plastic shield
installed over the release button. This release button
should not be disengaged and the shield
should not be removed until the clockspring has
been installed on the steering column. If the release
button is disengaged before the clockspring is
installed on a steering column, the clockspring centering
procedure must be performed.
NOTE: Before starting this procedure, be certain
that the front wheels are in the straight-ahead position.
(1) Carefully slide the centered clockspring down
over the steering column upper shaft until the two
integral plastic latches on the back of the clockspring
housing are fully engaged through their openings in
the steering column lock housing (Fig. 17).
(2) Reconnect the two instrument panel wire harness
connectors to the two connector receptacles
located below the steering column on the back of the
clockspring housing.
(3) Position the upper and lower shrouds onto the
steering column.
(4) Align the snap features on the lower shroud
with the receptacles in the upper shroud and apply
hand pressure to snap them together.
(5) From below the steering column, install and
tighten the two screws that secure the lower shroud
to the upper shroud. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (18
in. lbs.).
(6) If the vehicle is equipped with the optional tilt
steering column, move the column back to the fully
raised position and move the tilt release lever back to
the locked (up) position.
(7) If a new clockspring has been installed, remove
the plastic shield covering the release button that
secures the clockspring rotor to the clockspring case
to maintain clockspring centering.
(8) Reinstall the steering wheel onto the steering
column. (Refer to 19 - STEERING/COLUMN/STEERING
WHEEL - INSTALLATION).
NOTE: Be certain that the steering wheel mounting
screw is tightened to the proper torque specification
to ensure proper clockspring operation.
(9) Reconnect the steering wheel wire harness connector
to the upper clockspring connector receptacle.
(10) Reinstall the driver airbag onto the steering
wheel. (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL/RESTRAINTS/
DRIVER AIRBAG - INSTALLATION).
(11) Reconnect the battery negative cable

There is play in the steering and wen driving it feels lyk one of the rear wheels is going to fall off, but wheel nuts are done up tight and were tightened evenly


Could be a wheel bearing, ball joint or tie rod end. All of these components keep the wheel tight to the chassis and suspension of the car. If there is play in the wheel or the steering wheel doesn't seem as responsive I would imagine you have some loose parts in your steering or suspension system. This can be very dangerous as wheels can fall off the car while driving if the condition is bad enough. Take it to a shop ASAP and have them look at your steering and suspension system!

93 Jeep Cherokee - steering problems


Check both front wheels with the steering wheel centered. One or both may appear to be pointing in the wrong direction slightly. Check both sleeves on the tie rod ends to make sure they are tight and not able to turn. (adjustment sleeves are slightly different than on most cars. One sleeve extends from the drivers side across the front and is about 21/2' long the other is shorter and is about 5" to the passenger side of the pitman arm on the steering box. If either moves, turn it 'till the wheels are fairly straight, tighten the bolts that are on the clamp around the slotted tube, and bring it to an alignment shop and have the toe in re-set.
A condition such as this is nothing to mess with. loss of steering is extremely dangerous.

Far to much steering wheel play befor tire reaction


Loosen nut on top of steering gear box. Tighten adjustment bolt 1/4 turn at a time then tighten nut. Drive and see if it hold together better. Repeat until you can't tighten adjustment bolt any more. If it's still iffy, replace your steering gear box.

Esp/bas light on, steering wheel off center after off roading


If your steering wheel is off center, this can cause the problem. Luckily this is very easy to fix -- you can do so even if you have little to no experience working on your vehicle.
1. Park the vehicle with the wheels facing straight ahead (drift forward until you are moving in a straight line). Don't worry about the steering wheel position. 2. Locate the steering drag link -- the diagonal rod coming from the bottom of the steering arm to the top of the passenger side steering knuckle (on the axle near the tire) 3. Loosen the two bolts on the rotating adjustment collar on this link. I believe these are 13mm. 4. Rotate the collar one way about two or three turns, check the steering wheel to ensure that the "Jeep" logo is perfectly horizontal. If it's not, continue rotating the collar (or move it in the opposite direction) until the wheel is centered. 5. Tighten down the nuts on the drag link adjuster. 6. Take her for a test drive and let me know how it worked!

Turning sharply in parking lot vibration or rubbing feeling in the steering also in reverse on 2001 grande cherokee with quadra track 2


1st let me make sure I understand your Jeeps 4 wheel drive. I believe the quadra trac system is a full time 4 wheel drive, there is no 2 wheel drive setting, only a separate 4 Lo (for very slow speed). If this is correct, the problem is, the quadra trac system you have is supposed to compensate for any variations in wheel speed, whether it's driving in the snow, or cutting the wheels sharply to park on dry pavement. What u describe is typical behavior of a part time 4 wheel drive system. The problem is, your full time 4x4 should be compensating for this, and it's not. So, let me know if the above info about your 4wd is accurate (no part time 4wd setting, no 2wd setting, only full time 4wd and 4Lo setting. If it is, the system is not compensating for changes in the wheel slippage correctly.
