Clunking is not a good sound on ANY vehicle. neither is clicking,clacking etc...! I see where there are two possibilities here,and both require that you get under the truck and look around a bit. BUT both are easy and inexpensive...that would be to look at the transmission mounts and make sure they are not worn too bad...and the other is your everyday u-joint may be bad. if you find a bad u-joint,and can spring an extra 15 bucks, replace them all,cause as sure as 1 fails, the other will soon.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 8Cyl4.7L When when driving over 50 miles per hour will lose all power whats wrong?


When you say it loses power, do you mean electrical power or engine power ?
You would need to look at the fuse boxes for a loss of electrical power, and use a scanner or code reader to check the computer for trouble codes for a loss of engine power.

When I put my 2005 jeep grand cherokee in reverse and turn at the same time it clunks in the rear end, the service 4 wheel drive light came on and the service electric brake system light came on


I have the same vehicle, with the same issue. I had put the car on a rack and lifted it to pin point the cause of the clunk when shifting from park to reverse or reverse to drive. I found that the front diff mounts were grenaded, meaning they needed to be replace bad. with these mounts being bad it was causing the front diff housing to slam the frame up and down when shifting from park or reverse to drive. this is pretty expensive to fix, your talking $160 in parts and $540 in labor. I also had the service 4WD warning display on my dash cluster, i had the code read. It came up as a bad solenoid in the rear diff. this is about $200 parts and labor to fix. Also, dont know how many miles are on your jeep but if you've ever sub-merged your axles under water or if your over 60,000 miles you need to replace your gear oil in the front diff, rear diff and transfer case. This is a little costly to have a mechanic do as well because you're supposed to use synthetic gear oil. For a shop to do it you're looking at $360.

Jeep grand cherokee transmission clunk


well then it sounds to me as if you need a transmission replacement...a flush or service at this point won't do you any good, as the transmission is using the contamination in the fluid to build pressure. so if you flush it all away, then the new fluid is way too thin to build any pressure...just replace your transmission....

No back-up lights on an 2002 Grand Cherokee 4.7L w/ 545RFE


On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced
