How to remove tire on a 1988 jeep cherokee 4x4


unless you have or knows who would have done that it will be just rust around the wheel studs and the axle centre section
use a liberal dose of a rust penetrate, and hit the rim from behind to loosen it off the axle.

My 4 wheel drive light comes on saying servec 4 whell drive swetch where is the 4 wheel drive swetch at on a 95 jeep cherokee laredo


Is it a an 85 or a95? I know of two switches on these vehicles, one is a four port vacuum switch on the top of the transfer case, you must unplug the vacuum line, and unscrew it from the transfer case. The other is on the front axle. The one on the transfer case is rather difficult to reach, it is hex shaped for a wrench. Unsure of size, it is large though. The one on the front axle is part of the axle shift motor, is unplugged and removed for replacement. I believe the one on the axle only serves to turn on the 4x4 indicator light.

Four wheel drive wont engage


Hi ninja,

Select-Trac?

Make sure you have plenty of 90 wt. in the front axle. I've got an '86 Cherokee Laredo. It doesn't kick right in to gear. You need to be moving, but not to fast. Sometimes reversing, then back into drive works.

When you disengage it, if you are moving at or above 30 mph, you'll hjear a rapid clicking from the front axle as it tries to let go. Put it in neutral for a second or two. That will take enough strain off the drive train to allow it to disengage.

Best regards
Mike

Creaking sound while turning steering wheel


i'll bet this is a front wheel drive or four wheel drive. when the front wheels are tied to the drive train. the front axle shafts bearings can go kaput. jack up the vehicle and turn the steering wheel all the way to one side and spin one tire at a time by hand. you are bound to hear snaping and cracking coming from the axle shafts.

4 wheel drive not engaging


I do not have a vacuum diagram for the 89 Cherokee, but my 89 had the same issue several times and all it was is that the block of vacuum lines that go into the front axle on the rear of the axle on the passenger side of the vehicle. I ended up having to put a zip tie around the axle and hose block to hold it on. Have not had the issue again since doing this. Hope that helps.

CHECK YOUR U-JOINTS ON THE HALF SHAFTS BETWEEN THE KNUCKLE AND AXLE HOUSING HIGHER MILEAGE DANA 30 AXLE ESPECIALLY WITH FULL TIME FOUR WHEEL DRIVE THESE JOINTS WILL RUST OUT OR WEAR OVER TIME OVER TIME.

Changing my 1989 from 4 wheel drive to 2 wheel drive and Anti-Locking Braking System


An ABS system will have wheel sensors installed. Remove one of your wheels and look for a wiring harness that runs to your steering knuckle(the part that you brake rotor and strut is attached to. Also, either you front half shaft or brake rotor will have what looks like gear teeth on them. These are the magnets the sensor reads. If your Jeep has either of these it has an ABS system. Secondly the chassis on the Cherokees should be the same irregardless of trim level (limited vs regular). These trim levels affect the interior trim and power extras only not the mechanical parts.
