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.

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.

Can anyone tell me the best way to remove the running boards from a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited? Thanks.

Are they damaged? If you are replacing them...look at the new part for the mounting bolt locations...Also, you could visit your local salvage yard...(oic a part) and practice or examine a salvage Grand Cherokee. They have been big sellers and should be plentiful. Hope this helps.

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) .

New shes and hardware kit for your vehicle cost about $40 (18 for shoes and 20 for kit) at PepBoys or AutoZone, turning drums is less than $20 at PepBoys. Labor is about $80. So you are looking at about $140 all toghether. Brake adjustment is part of installation,

1996 jeep grand chrokee turns over will not start, replaced cam shaft censor and ECM, and coil. distibuter cap looks bad has some white dust inside and contacts burnt. could it be that?

If you did not replace the CRANK sensor on the back side of the motor this most likely is the problem and a very common one at that.this controls spark and injector pulse,unlike the cam sensor which just shows when #1 cilyder is up.
