Jeep Going Dead and Backfiring

Have a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 4x4, 4.0 liter. It hesitates occasionally while driving down the road. It also occasionally goes dead and backfires while taking off from stoplights. I have replaced the distributor, crank sensor, wires and plugs, coil, and battery. Any ideas? I am extremely frustrated!

Re: Jeep Going Dead and Backfiring

Have someone get behind you and see if they can smell rotten eggs. It could be the 02 sensor going bad. Is the check engine light coming on? Also try to change the fuel filters. There should be two. One by the fuel tank and one on the firewall. They are very inexpensive and could be the cause of all the trouble. If that doesn't work, I would suggest hauling it off to the car crusher.

got mine off ebay for a decent price.  you can also order through the dealership.  if you order a newer one (make sure it is for the jeep) it will make some minor changes (upgrades) to your radio.

Navigation CD will not read.

Eject the disc, use a little water and a soft towel to clean it. The discs occasionally get dusty being in a car and such. be careful when cleaning though, as MOPAR will charge you several hundred $$ for a replacement one.

97 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Stereo problem

If you still have audio but unable to turn the volume, there are 02 possible problem:
- the volume control is defected will not respond ( electronic volume control; need logic low/high to activate the audio )
- the front control PCB is broken ( can be fixed if there is a small cracked )
If no audio at all then most likely audio output IC defected
