97 jeep chngd driver auto locks, circut board melted few,clickn again. Sputters at stops.thnkn speed sensor,timing,neutral safety. recently changed govern,Any ideas .

now i understand you.
the left door motor is shorted

the BCM (body brain)
is programmed to send autolock commands on the CCD-NEtwork (a car network is this)
over 15mph, (on mine i have them turned off)2010.
the BCM runs a program. (computer instructions)
1: send auto lock command out. to all controllers.
2: read back status of all locks (lock switches)
3: if any switch fails jump to 1 and repeat
its safety feature for kids. and is maniacal.

the book says, you cant turn off the 15mph autolock
only the dealer can with a DRB tool. unlike mine.

what ID do, after seeing all wires ok in that door.
id remove the motor lock, and bench test it.
using a 12vdc battery or power pack.
we use a pack. that is current limited,
so i connect it and it shows motor is shorted
or jammed, its no good.
the chapter 8P , states exactly that .
it does not show normal motor currents,in amps.
my guess, 2 to 3 amps. or even less.
for sure not 15.
the motor shorted will trip the JB breaker #2 if over 30amps, but at that level, other things tend to melt.
its there to stop a fire only

that is it.

so forget speed sensors.! that is the part you confused me with, (was thinking car cant shift right)
that 15mph is a hard rule. it coded into the BCM
brain. on mine i can bypass this rule but you cant.
unless your operators guide says else wise
I sure dont have a 98 ORP guide,here.
open yours and read LOCKS.

Panel ligth and parking ligths is not turn on.

I have the same problem with my 1998 Grand Cherokee Laredo. I feel it has something to do with the slider switch. Pressing down on the switch while sliding it up and down and setting it at a desired level of intensity usually works for me.

Hi my nissan maxima has problem

The oxygen sensors in the exhaust pipe are saying the fuel/air ratio is too lean. This commonly happens when the computer in the car reached it's limit putting out the most fuel. Therefore, the mix ratio is still lean.
The possible problem maybe:
The fuel pump not puting out enough pressure.
The fuel filter maybe clogged
The fuel injector maybe clogged or needs to be cleaned.

Were there anymore trouble codes besides the two from Autozone?
