Speaking from prior experience, It's possible that the door lock latch assembly may need replacing usually the drivers side or the lift gate latch assembly. These are the 2 that can arm & disarm the alarm system. You may have a faulty switch in either of these. Hope this helps.

To be able to replace the bybass hose on the water pump, you must first make room to gain access to the hose clamps that attach to the water pump. To make room you must first remove the fan clutch, fan and fan shroud all of them simultaneously. To do that, start by loosening the tensioner roller with a rathcet and removing the serpentine belt. Then loosen the fan cluthc nut using a 32 mm spaner and loosen the bolts of the fan shroud. Then pull the three things upwards (fan shroud, fan, and fan clutch).

Hi, the Jeep Grand Cherokee 1997 has a security system called VTSS (Vehicle Theft Security System). The VTSS cannot be disabled as it comes factory installed. What you can do is prevent the VTSS alarm from arming. If you prevent it from arming, you will void it activating. One of the VTSS funcions is to also prevent the engine from starting when the alarm is armed. To disarm the alarm do this. Locate a line colored Violet with a black trace in the Body control module connector. In a suitable place of that line, insert a needle and using a jumper wire touch that needle with an extreme while the other extreme is touching ground. This will disarm the VTSS alarm. When the VTSS is disarmed, the engine will start every time you need it to.

Of course it is!! You need to demobilize it by pressing unlock on the key after turning the egnition 3/4 of the way on.. then start it. It shouldn't cut out then. But sometimes if your battery is a flat in the keys, which can also leave it imobilized. A kiwi freind of mine bought a 97grand Cherokee a few years back and could start it but it kept on cutting out on him. A beauty maroon 160k on the clock all electrics working he left it sitting in his back yard for years before he found out he had to press unlock in the 3/4 position on the ignition. And by then he'd bought an BMW X5. So I ended up scoring it for free and I also bought a nother of a mate for 1k done 300k but it had good quality things that my freebie didnt, so I built one awsome jeep outa the two.

my socket set goes to 1-1/4": and 36mm. my e-torx kit has all sizes, one can need. with no sets. you must measure them. it's not covered in the FSM. only 175ft/lbs on the axle nut and need for a torque wrench that big. kit 1: http://www.sears.com/titan-tools-13-pc-e-torx-socket-set/p-00926107000P?sid=IDx01192011x000001&kpid=00926107000&kispla=00926107000P the better question is ,is the axle nut SAE or metric. most real Chrysler built are metric. so that big nut, at that torque needs 1/2' drive and the torque wrench to match. id bet this covers that http://www.harborfreight.com/13-piece-12-drive-metric-deep-wall-impact-socket-set-67904.html you could off the hub cap and measure the nut, with a metric rule. the external torx same. with a caliper measure the head. then use the e-torx table to mach it. bet the first ever to post that. its rare to ask. most folks just have the 2 sets. ( a life time investment if ever there was) here is the table i uses, if ever http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torx good luck working with only 2 bits.

does your car have DRL option (canada) daylight running lights?) my answer will be, non export jeep. USA jeep, no one ever says !!!! the tail lamps are not brake lamps. they are independant. there are many parking lamps , and the tails are that. do all parking lamps fail>? see FSM page 8w50-2 the tails run directly to the park headlight switch pin, marked park. which gets power from fuse 34 the same switch and pin runs all other park lamps and same fuse 34. so if the fuse is good, then all lamps are burned out , nah. or the switch is bad, and can due to so many lights for so long. if lamps are not dim then here is no short, so must be an open Fuse 34 tops list , use an ohmeter to test the fuse. or replace it as , they can get hair line cracks. inside fues 0 ohms = good, infinity = bad fuse.

Is it fuel injected or carb??? Try holding the gas pedal to the floor while turning the jeep over. This sometimes makes gas pump thru to the cylinders. Have you changed the fuel filter???? I know alot of jeeps have a fule filter with a bypass back to the tank, and sometimes the filter will be bypassing to the tank instead of the the motor. Check it out?????

Most likely the dimmer switch. Loose connections from the harness connector to the switch can melt the connectors which would cause a poor connection and be the source of the flicker. You may be looking at a combination switch and wiring problem.

Replace the blower motor relay, it is defective and sticking internally, causing the heater motor to keep running.

Check your rear emergency brakes. A brake shoe pin could have broke and the shoe locks up in 1 direction. but not the other. The other problem you mentioned could happen, but if it is in reverse the trans shifted.
