Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
I have a 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo with 180,000 miles. Every now and then my check airbag light comes on and beeps on the dashboard and at night sometime the lights on hte gear shift trun off and on. After about an hour or two on the road, the a/c doen't stay very cool and blows weaker.
One day last week I tried to start it up and it won't start. There was lots of clicking noises and then nothing. We replaced the battery and then it started for a few minutes with the fuel guage reading at empty. Even though the night before I filled the tank up. Now it wouldn't start after that. Had the fuel pump and fuel filter replaced but still not working. I had to have the jeep towed to the mechnaic's shop. Mechanic said he thinks it is an electrical short in the system. Should I go to another mechanic or take it to a jeep dealer and have them look at it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Take it to another mechanic, and let them know if not problem found you won't pay, you know what, there is some ground circuits ATACHED to the engine block on the passenger side, make sure they are tie and complete check one by one by pulling gently and make sure they are ok, also tell your mechanic to check the number 4 and 5 conectors on the obd2 conector for a known good ground, if not ground or weak ground then doble check any ground coming from batterie to body or from engine block to wiring harnes, most of times they are black in color with white strip on it, goos luck and let me know,
also this jeeps have very coming problem with bad crank sensors
but with all the symptoms i'm almost positive thatn you will find a ground problem
