Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

1997 Grand Cherokee Orvis 4x4, ABS light on constantly, then brake light, changed pads but only the rear were worn, not the front. It does not stop properly, think it is only using the rear brakes. New pads on back, but brake light and ABS still on. Is there a proportioning valve or something that could be malfunctioning?

    I did not think about that, seems kinda obvious now that you said that. I will put a new one in it, and then have the entire system bled, then see what the results are. I have heard that bleeding the system is a real pain because of the ABS. Any suggestions on how I could do it, or is it best just to take it to a brake shop?

I have 2002 chrysler grand voyager 3.3 litre auto. abs light came on and is gone now , but there is a lot of vibration and rattle when i press brake. What do i do?


Inspect both the front and rear brakes. Including rotors, drums( if equipped in rear), abs sensors and wiring to the sensors, and brake pads/shoes. Also be sure to remove the calipers and look at the brake pads to check for worn out or uneven wear and replace if necessary. Hope this helps

On my 1998 Grand Caravan, the ABS light has come on and I know that I need to replace the front brake pads as I heard them squeeling this weekend but also now the front blower stopped working for the AC...


The ABS light is most likely a bad Wheel Speed Sensor.

The Blower is most likely a Blower Resistor that rusted away. You should have a couple of blower speeds left.

The directional issues are the third problem

Work on one thing at a time.

My 97 jeep grand cherokee makes a chirping sound under front


The noise and the light may or may not be related. The noise may be the wear indicator on the brake pads touching the rotor (they are supposed to do that when brakes are worn) The abs light triggers off a wheel on the axle end. If you have a bad joint on the axle, it could be noisy and causing the wheel to not have the proper clearance to the abs sensor. You really need to take the wheel and brake assembly off and carefully inspect everything. Make sure all abs sensor wires are undamaged...it doesn't have to be at the same wheel that's chirping.

RELACING WHEEL BEARINGS IN A 95 JEEP GRAND


Front wheel bearings can be done at home rear wheel bearings will require a hydraulic press and an axle puller. Either job can be difficult depending on amount of rust and availability of tools. The front wheel bearings are an assembly and once the jeep is up on jack stands, with the tires, brake calipers, and rotors removed, it is only a matter of removing the axle nut and 3 bolts (which can be difficult depending on rust) holding in the old bearing assembly

Brakes pulsate real hard


That is just the ABS system at work. It is supposed to prevent your wheels from locking which often makes the brake pulsate, especially in wet weather or or snow or ice. The only way to really stop this is to disable to ABS by unplugging it and removing the fuse. This will make the ABS light appear in your dash, but your brakes will stop pulsating.
