Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I own a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.7 Liter Hemi. Just recently, the ligt in my combination Radio/GPS System started flickering while driving. It is sporadic, working just fine for a time, then all of sudden it starts to flicker without warning. At the same time, as the flickering is going on, the courtesy lights will not turn on when I turn the light switch control unit to that position. Any suggestions will be helpful, as I know an auto dealership will charge a high troubleshooting bill to get this one solved. I have done much research and there does not appear to be relative information on this issue. Thank you.....

    Azraelsrl: Hi....I received your emails and solution, but have not had the opportunity to conduct the operation as you suggested. It does make sense, and has strong possibilities, but until I actually remove the steering shaft shrouds and investigate the wiring, etc. will not know for sure.

    For now I would like to accept your suggestion with a follow-up yes or no later if it solved the problem....Thank you very much

Bad contact in the wiring - the shocks from the road move the wiring loom and loosen the connector from the lights switch on the steering shaft. To fix it all you normally have to do is to remove the steering shaft shrouds, locate the connector, clean and refit it properly. If this doesn't fixes it then the switch itself is faulty and it will have to be replaced.
If you can't do that yourself then your local repair shop will be able to, no need for an expensive dealer.

Just bought a 2006 jeep gand cherokee limited 4.7 liter v8 with 77 miles i t seems to be burning gas very quickly actually to fast what could cause this ?


if you mean bad gas mileage (and only 77 miles on it) the engine isn't broken in yet, its still tight. it will take time to break it in, and you should see your mileage start to improve. check your intake and air cleaner, could be clogged.
