Did you clean the throttle body and plate of any carbon ?

1998 Jeep Grand... | Answered on Aug 27, 2017 | 221 views

none of the above
the problem is a sensor in the transmission changing ratios so run the fault codes and check the problem
suspect that wiring or a TR ( transmission ratio) sensor is going faulty

the usual culprits of this issue are the liftgate switch or the flipper glass switch. very common issue on that style jeep. what happens is over time the metal holding that switch together weakens and the switch begins to come apart. if you have a bad one sometimes you can push it back together and recrimp it somewhat. im sure it is not a cheap part from jeep. check em out and see if thats your issue. on my old one i replaced the headlight switch and the interior light relay before i found the real culprit!! you might even find a youtube vid on this very subject. good luck

Did you check the fluid level in the rear end?

1998 Jeep Grand... | Answered on Jun 27, 2017 | 104 views

Hey Dennis,
Have you checked the lube level in the read differential? If its good, you have a wheel bearing going bad. To replace it, you will need to remove the axle.. This is not a hard fix, but you have to have the ALL the tools and you MUST put the rear end up on jack stands..DO NOT use a jack to hold the rear end up.. IF you are not very mechanically inclined, please take this to a qualified professional..

dome light issue is usaully the rear lifgate switch coming apart. and yes this would drain the battery if left unnoticed for a while. you can also pull the dome light relay under the kick panel on the passengers side...good luck

You are getting too much pressure in the system and the gasket are the place where the pressure is released.

if your front shafts are the u joint type i bet one of them is bad. it will cause a kind of twitching feeling and binding while turning if they fail.

Check 15A FUSES 18 and 21 in the power distribution center, the A/C compressor clutch relay, and A/C CLU CTRL output (DK BLU/RED wire) from PCM.

check levels using the book do not guess, do not overfil it
its done hot and running, per the manual
in all gear selected? (not in traffic tests)

try L gear, or R?

OP sorry you are fixing a car you dont understand.
no engine stated, nor size or gas or diesel
and is a stalls post!
located DOWN under, zillion miles from us...oh joy;

the post a WG jeep (to usa) we dont have them here in USA, zero.

then post wall of text and endless problems
why stick to just one, fix that and move on.
pick one.(ASD is serious )
be best here, in serial endless, posts land.
i hate to pop your bubble but mechanics is now 1/2 electronics! facts.

EFI , and networks too. sorry but you need some class time.
I see you are mixing up different jeeps data.
why mix one countries books with others,for sure yours and ours
our 98 is WJ jeep ONLY sold only here.
outside usa. JG or, ZG, WG
sorry they are not the same car, nor are the clusters.

wow. nor many other things same,most of which are governed by each countries laws
KUDOS or 11th person ever here stating country, gee there is hope.
way to go there,here is big fat cigar and lotto ticket as prize! HOORAY!

this car runs from 1993 to 2017 and beyond
so vast books on them. huge by country (market)
you can not swap cluster willly-nilly, due to odometer laws
if you read the cluster page,(SM) it told you that
SM = service manual.
and yes, cluster runs on a network, all GC are.

if you had read the cluster chapter it told you
how to do the cluster self test diagnosis(methods)
costs 0 bucks 0 tools.
so if that passed, you scan the PCM
to see if there are no communication errors to the cluster.
no cluster can work on a DEAD NETWORK
just like dead WIFI, same same. deal.

you failed both steps; guessing here, is not possible.
seems like we can delete you whole post
and add this.
"Have had an intermittent Failure of injectors and ignition coils,l auto shut down and fuel pump relays for several years now:
sure many do... and will never be fixed, ever lacking a scan too. (I promise)

if then car has IMMO lamp,(lamp12> right corner)
if it glows at any time driving,that means KEY FAILURE.
"security key:" if in fact is is opted, and in europe they run there own, SKIM IMMO systems there. even back to 1996.

so not fitted with IMMO
then you must scan the PCM to see why the pcm Cut the ASD relay, you MUST there is NO other way possible
sorry, but is a FACT

so post, car drops ASD random times
and forget all that other stuff.

check IMMOBILIZer lamp.
scan it now.
if fail scan not,or even before failure we scan live driving
for fact the PCM will tell you WHO failed
is this hard? no!


if no scantool

BRICKwall results.

here is skim 2002 skim
see that lamp.. if it goes on driving all jeeps made on earth STALL,(BY DESIGN)
and 6 more causes of ASD drop and stalls.
salls have 50 cause,but im talking only ASD drop
induced STALLS

I doubt its a short. a short to power would mean something is getting power besides through the fuse and your battery would die. I short to ground would cause the fuse to blow. my guess would be some device that is controlled by this fuse is malfunctioning. if you can try and unplug devices like the radio amplifier and see if the noise is removed.

best of luck

So do I buy a new fuse

1998 Jeep Grand... | Answered on Feb 06, 2017 | 875 views

what fails, what wont go, add NOUNS. so its clear.
my wild guess, is the door locks fail.
door lock
many there are, all fail, from inside car and outside with FOB
if fails outside, lost 2nd FOB ?
never mind, that.
RTM , ever note that ive posted the free FSM on here like 300 times.
here it is one more time read the chapter on locks if it is lock failures.
next time post full symptoms on ALL DOORS.
