Question about Cherokee Jeep Grand CD Changers - 10-Disc

1 Answer

Jeep alternator Hi guys,I have a 1991 Jeep YJ,it stopped one day on my way home, I thought it was out of gas, but ,,had lots of gas,so I put a new gas filter on it,put new 'O' rings on the injectors,put in a new battery,and it still will not start, it tries VERY hard to start sometimes it seems it catches , then it is getting gas at the injector site.I have tried 'bomb'starting it that didn't work either. so i am think by process of elimination it needs a new alternator ?? BUT I am not a mechanic , I just use my book for it and try to figure it out.Thank you for your time and any assistance. Lorraine

Re: jeep alternator

I cannot diagnose your Jeep with given info, but I can answer your question...NO, a bad alternator will never be a problem for an engine to not start, especially not after a new battery. Possibly cracked spark unit that allowed water to penetrate and fail it. Spark can be intermittent after this fails. Check it by removal and inspect for crack. Have you tried using "starting fluid" into the air intake manifold or is that what you mean as 'bomb' starting?

Error code P1763 forinstance this guy needs to replace both the sensor and the solenoid
and perhaps mod it like the dodge guys have done

its a bad governor pressure sensor

looking here you'll find the issue
and checking out this error its common to dodge also
there is also other mods to the transmission to stop it happening

{you need to paste this into the browser}
but this is the error

you replace it and clear the code

I just bought a2007 jeep commander the other weekend and just the other day I backed out my driveway and the check parking assist came on the dash pushed on the gas and nothing felt like there was no gas...

If you just purchased it from a dealer it should have a warranty for a few days. If it does take it back and let them deal with it. Could be cheaper in the long run.

Burning much gas

The cause is that the Compass is too heavy for any of the engine combinations offered. Further, and especially in the case of the 2.4L, the engines are far from efficient even when used in appropriately weighted vehicles.
This is the least effective product that Chrysler/Jeep has ever offered - not only my thoughts, look around (at non-Chrysler/Jeep websites).
Chrysler/Jeep does NOT have a reputation for selling vehicles that are economical - and a tank weighing some 4600lbs with only 175 horsepower (and that's with the 2.4L) on SUV-tyres should not be expected to do any better than 30-40 mpg. I'd be surprised if your mileage wasn't more realistically around 50mpg, since the ratings system used in US is somewhat 'generous' to the manufacturer.

I went through this routine with a Ford Escape and eventually a Ford dealer found the fuel pump was failing mechanically and had to be replaced. Hope this helps point you to what to check.

I have a jeep liberty that just had a new battery put in and now the cd changer won't work. any suggestions

Alternately, try opening the CD changer door, ejecting the CD carrier and look for a small reset button below the opening. Press this with the tip of a pen and hold it for 10 seconds, then turn the radio/CD on again.
