Hi there bjam

Why not let the computer tell you what the problem is? Your Jeep has on board diagnostics that can help locate problems it is having. These diagnostics are normally accessed by a 'Code Reader' that plugs in to a socket normally located under the dash on the left side of the steering column.

You can buy a Code Reader for $60.00 to $100.00 and use it once. OR..(just a suggestion) you can do it manually, which will only cost you about ten minutes of your time. Here's how.

First off, what to expect:

  • The error codes are two digit numbers.
  • They are communicated in the form of a flashing light on your dashboard. It will blink a number of times followed by a short pause, then again followed by a longer pause.
  • The short pause separates the digits.
  • The long pause separates the individual codes
  • For example, Blink-Blink short pause Blink long pause would be a code 21
  • The codes will be displayed from lowest to highest
Are you ready?
  • Get a pen, a pad of paper, your keys and get in the Jeep.
  • Turn the ignition ON (not start)-OFF, ON-OFF, ON within 5 seconds.
  • Just after the last ON, the instrument panel will begin flashing.
  • Write down the flash patterns.
  • If you missed one, keep going. Then repeat the test.
When you finish, get back to me with the codes so I can look them up for you. They should tell us whats going on. Then we can act accordingly.

Remember: Good things come to those who Rate!

Steering and real bad vibration in front end


That is known as "the death wobble" for very obvious reasons. You need to install steering dampeners . They look like shocks and they mount between the drag link and the frame. They will cure the problem. Don't delay putting them on your Jeep. Hope this helps.

Sounds like the speedo sensor needs to be replace on the transmission. I've had a similar problem with my Jeep with the sopeedo not working then work after the tranny heats up then after a period of time the needle started to jump when at 100 km or 60 mph. I changed the sensor and the problem went away. Good luck!

The vehicle speed sensor and speedometer are one in the same on this model I believe. If one goes out it takes the other with it if its all electronic and not cable driven.
