Pinkig under load ?

Its a 2007 model, 5000 miles. been parked up for two weeks. started ok as usual today but sounds like its pinking when under load through the gears. it has the usual unleaded fuel.
The throttle position sensor was changed under warrany 2000mile ago as the bike was cutting out at tickover then not restarting straightaway.
It has been ok since the sensor was changed and now this pinking/clatter under load.

any one had similar probs or got any ideas ?

    Update on running problem.

    This has now resolved itself.

    I have put a splash of octane booster in with the unleaded fuel and the bike now feels as good as new.

    Just for the record I used- RockOil XRP Fuel Enhancer.

    Regards All.

The pink wire doesnt go anywhere on my jensen mp 5000 in my cmping trailer

the pink wire is the switch wire for the parking brake which shuts the unit of whilst the parking brake is disengaged, if its disconnected then that should make the unit work all the time.
Check for loose wires on the red and yellow cables, also check the in-line fuse holder isn't loose.

Sounds like you have a broken belt that runs the alternator. Usually when the battery and brake lights come on it means the alternator isn't charging. Either that or the alternator burnt up.

Changing the ATF will not make it impossible to use the shift lever. You should first check that the brake lamps are working, if not then check the fuse. The shift gate lock is actuated by a switch connected to the brake lamps system. Hope that helps

98 Cherokee 4.0 VERY loud grinding

Sounds like the alternator bearings have gone away, but, you need to physically check the source of the noise. (I can't do that from here).
It also seems that you may have more than one problem going on there, possibly a bad ignition switch and also a blown fuse or bad body control module. As far as why the noise seems to be only when the engine is "freewheeling" may have a lot to do with rpm change and loading when in gear. I would go after the obvious alternator problem first, then sort out the remainder later.

Shifter will not unlock out park

I popped the ring off around the shifter. I have a 2008 Sebring. Inside the shifter are two pink colored pieces of plastic. I used a screwdriver to the one on the left and pushed it back towards the rear of the car. I pushed as far back as I could go and the shifter went out of Park as easy as could be. I hope this helps!
