Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Radio in jeep cherokee will pick up few stations but not many local stations. It used to pick up many, then one day stopped picking up any, then one day picked up a few which is where we are today. I changed antennae and made problem worse so I replaced with old antennae. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Common problem... first, the antenna isn't connected directly to the radio... sometimes the junction points will crack and separate... second, sometimes the radios, radio tuner will go bad. if you have a Cherokee (not a Grand Cherokee) check you passenger side kick panel (location of a common antenna connection weak point) . Some genius placed a spring in the connection... just pull the spring out, reconnect and tape the connection together... Let me know if this helped at all... if the connections are all good, you will have to replace the radio... but, from what you described you wont have to...

NO AM STATIONS IN MY 1998 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE, BUT NO PROBLEMS WITH FM. DO I Have to change or repair the radio or the antenna?


A.m. radio stations have a very limited range and honestly modern units include am reception as an after thought. Unless you are within a few miles of the station you probably won't pick it up. That being said if you are close enough and still cannot pick it up then the radio is probably faulty.

AM/FM radio how can get sound back?


a bad antenna tops list. or the cable fell off to it?
got static with volume up?
sure.
if you remove the ant. jack and put finger on the hot pin inside
you will become a human antenna, and pickup close local stations
or use a length of any wire, to put there and get lots of stations
if that works the radio is ok and antenna is bad.
we do this bench testing.

I have a 1996 jeep grand charakee can't pick up any local stations. the antina looks to be in good condition


If it's a factory radio, it is fairly easy to remove. Once you get it pulled out, you can use a cheap "universal" antenna or even a coat hangar (if you are careful to only touch the center plug contact...wrapping the end with tape often helps) to see if the radio itself can pick up any signal. If not, aftermarket radios (with a harness adapter) or one from a scrapyard, if far cheaper than a repair.

The antenna for your am receiver is located inside the radio itself and is only a couple of inches in length and about 3/8 of an inch in diameter.

How to replace window regulator for 1998 jeep grand cherokee


Hi
You must remove the door pane by prying out with a wide screw drivernext to the clips that hold it in place. also you may have to remove a few phillips screws inside the pocket of the door handle.
After panel has been removed .Remove the two bolts that hold the assembly in place unplug the cable that connects to the motor and pick up on window and remove the whole assembly. Installation is just in reverse.
Be careful of the clips that hold the panel to the door as they break or strip easily. But dont worry if they do break you can pick them up at your local auto store.
Hope this helped good luck
