Have your charging system and battery tested. GEN stands for generator which you really don't have, you have an alternator...engineers are too busy changing stuff we don't need to change GEN to ALT!!!!
Good luck!!!

1996 jeep grand Cherokee hood ajar warning display flashing on center of dash I cannot find hood switch is there one.


The Grand Cherokee has a warning display. The low washer fluid warning is a blinking windshield on the outline of the jeep in the center console display. It is confusing and could be easily falsely interpreted as a hood ajar warning. Fill the window washer and srr if warning goes away.

The light gen displays on my dashboard on the control pannel of my 1997 Jeep Cherokee 4l petrol engine.


Check the voltage coming from the alternator to the battery. Make sure that everything is turned off inside the jeep before you check the voltage outside. Start the engine and using a volt meter check the voltage, it should be between 14-15 volts. If not then you are having a problem with the alternator on jeep and will need to replace it to correct your problem. If that checks out to be ok then you have a problem with the battery. Hope this will help you.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 Dual Air Intake


is this one of those cyclone cartridges you put in the intake hosing? if so then dont waste your money, the power gain off of one of these is not noticable and the fuel economy wont change enough to make a difference, the engine is gonna draw air in at whatever rate it will, the only way to change that is with forced air induction (ie turbo, supercharger, blower). these things only help to mix the fuel with the air a little better so you get a more even burn and less wet spray fuel making it into the cylinder. forced air induction works by changing the volumetric efficiency of your engine, say you have a 4L engine, running naturally aspirated in 1 cycle that 4L engine draws an average of 85% of that 4L, if you put on a turbo or blower or supercharger you make that engine draw in more than its 4L capacity so your 4L engine would be running at say 120% of that 4L, trying to compress that much more fuel/air mix is where you get all the extra power from. ill save the explanation of an intercooler for another day....

Dim Dashboard Lights


I think this indicates that you have an exterior light out. Check the tail lights, brake lights and the three bulbs that are mounted at the top of the rear window.
