If everything is okay before and after each icidence I would suspect a fuel supply problem. Are filter and pipes all clear of detritus? Does it happen in corners, whilst accelerating or decelerating? Does it happen whilst cruising? When engine is hot or cold. Which engine do you have. Please add detail and resubmit the query

On ebay or a Jeep dealer.

How do you know it "loads up with gas"

If you are having trouble restarting the car, consider doing a test of fuel pressure. If its low/zero it could be a) leaking fuel pump (known problem, there is a kit to fix) or b) leaking injector. If you suspect b, go ahead and replace all of them. Jeep will run like new...Well, change timing chain as well - its not that timing chain breaks, its that it gets too much slack and the computer gets confused.

Jeep XJ it is.
the Cluster is a computer. brain,
a stand alone display.
fuse 16 in PDC (cluster memory fuse)
and fuse 9 in JB . runs it. JB is cab fuse box.

so what works in the cluster, all things, but not speed or tacho.
engine runs ok
scan tool show no DTC errors.?
all warning lights in cluster work? at self test key?????

if the PCM can not comm, to the cluster, the cluster
can not show tach or speed, can't , and cant update odometer either
does the odometer roll moving>? i bet not

the cluster is a stand alone unit, with puter brain (processor)
fuel guage work?

if the scan tool shows U codes or C codes and comm errors
that must be addressed first. (cause)
you cant fix cars, with out a $5 scan tool, cant. why not buy one
and use it?
ask how, 1000's of choices here... and more.

or the FSM covers that.
the module is in steering head.
the wiper motor relay is inside it. (seen in schematic)

You didn't say what kind of car this is, but a P0443 code is typically a Ford code. The evap solenoid is located on the passenger side, near the firewall where the A/C filter dryer is. A vacuuum hose is connected from the solenoid to another switch called a flow sensor and then to the fuel rail.

Have you checked the engine computer for trouble codes yet ?

2000 Jeep... | Answered on Feb 12, 2015

First check the battery and connections.

Get an engine diagnosis before you start spending money. Could be the timing.

Not a dana 44 I bet. Dana 30 or 35, perhaps. If you google rear axle identification your should find a chart which reveals all.

The a.c.and heater cores that you speak of are inside the cabin behind the glove box. But that's the location, to access them the whole dash must be removed. its worth replacing a few problem parts once you open up the case that holds them, like both cores and the blend door

Problem I found: Clunk when driving over even small bumps.

If Grand Cherokee is 1999-2004, then check this: Above the differential is a wishbone cross member control arm. The cross member attaches to the frame in front of the rear axle (bolts through rubber bushings), and directly above the differential, at the apex of the cross member, is a ball joint. The ball joint assembly is a flange bolted atop the differential, with three bolts, and the ball joint pin protrudes from the flange through the cross member apex, with a nut atop the pin. Raise the frame slightly, and with a pry bar, pry above the flange, and below the cross member, very near the ball joint. If any motion is detected, then the ball joint is worn from the ball joint socket, or the nut is loose on the ball joint pin. If the nut is tight, then replace the ball joint. 2000 GC part number is 52088808AB, and is available from online sources or dealers. To replace this part, you'll probably need to remove the cross member, as the ball joint pin through the cross member is in a tight location, is tightly wedged into the cross member, and requires a special v-shaped puller to remove the pin from the cross member. If you don't have access to the puller tool, then remove the cross member for this operation. Raise vehicle slightly, under frame, in front of rear wheels. Unbolt the brake line and brake cable retainers from the cross member, then unbolt the flange from atop the differential. Then remove the two frame bolts and manipulate the cross member out of the vehicle, from above the differential.

With the cross member before you, support on blocks, loosen the ball joint nut somewhat, or remove it, and with a beater protective block, sledge out the pin from the cross member. Inspect the rubber bushings at this time. These bushings require an arbor press to remove/install, and the arbor press to install requires a spider so as to not rip the rubber bushing from either the bushing shell or center spool. The press spider is a 4-point tool you can make up from a piece of aluminum.

Bolt the new ball joint flange atop the differential, using blue thread locker, and torque the bolts to 100 ft-lb, cheater pipe useful here.

Replace the cross member to the frame, and install the two frame bolts, finger tight. Pull the member apex down onto the ball joint pin, and run the nut down. Using a box end wrench, hold the pin from rotation while tightening down the nut. Torque the nut to 100 ft-lb. Tighten the frame attachment bolts to 100 ft-lb, and reinstall the brake cable and brake line retainers. Do not over tighten these retainer bolts, as they are passing only through the sheet steel side of the cross member. Take care to not strip the sheet metal threadings. Lower vehicle and remove jack.

Make sure your brake lights are working, the shift interlock may not be getting signal from the brake light switch to release the shift lever. If they are working, the problem may be the shift interlock switch.

You may get away with replacing the handle parts. Junk yard items. You might have to replace all the shifter mechanism. The handle comes off from a set screw on the front of the bottom part of the handle. There is a small hole in the handle to put an allen wrench in it to unscrew it. Sometimes the button breaks. sometimes it is in the console.

toss coin 2 , the 4.0L I -6 engine, one of 5 million made

bingo 4L


hose #3?

free to look at any time , in fact all 3000 parts.

2000 Jeep... | Answered on Oct 19, 2014

which engine, we can not guess engines here. not ever. (rare)
this is called a XJ car.
2.5l or 4.0 liter or the Diesel????

ok electrics 101.
all electronics and electrics have a rule
of power is low, things go nuts.
its like not eating and blood sugur drops then you drop.
same deal;
each part has a rule for this but im not going there, (can but wont)
the starter goes dead at 8v
if the battery is weak many electronics goes nuts at below 10v.
varies by year and make of car and all options on the car.
for windows, IM NOT GOING THERE> way too complex of topic that.
(mix of parts)
so when the door goes nuts, what is the battery voltage
a tech, uses a voltmeter,
walmart sells one for $10 in auto and in the elect. department.

is the battery too low, cranking?
here are the 3 rules for the battery after cleaning posts.

1: charged battery rested , is 12.6v. not in siberia , summer temps.
2: running engine battery voltage is 13.3 to 15v, if not the battery drains.

3: cranking, most books show 11v. but if not below 10v your ok
most the time. but who knows, that? nobody on earth.

why not use booster jumper cables to a running other car AAA STYLE?
if the noise goes away, then may be ,
the battery is low
battery discharge
or battery is weak (bad)
or you have parasitic drains.
or the charge system is bad.

KEEP IN MIND i cant hear it. so... all my answers will sux.
