    It's not a Jeep stereo it's a Kenwood...and there is no manual with the Jeep. :(

    if you bought this used, then previous owner locked it, may need to email Kenwood with specifics.....sorry

    look in the glove box for the manual (may be Liberty manual). now look for the code lock instructions (may be on last page)

Jumps on rapid acceleration..

Could be fuel related. First thing to check for that would be a fuel pressure test. Even though the pump is working, the proper and specified pressure must be kept in the fuel rail for the injectors to work right.
And/or have the computer scanned for any diagnostic trouble codes. Many national parts stores do free diagnostic scans.

Stereo not working

Your stereo may have a security code that needs to be entered whenever the radio is disconnecred from the battery. It's an anti-theft device that makes the radio worthless to theives (even though nobody would steal a factory radio but, I digress...).

Have a look through all of the documentation for your van, owners manual, any additional pamphelts, etc. There may be one for the radio that should contain the reset code.

2001 stereo code.

The stereo's ESN Feature has activated. High-end Eclipse stereo's have a feature to prevent theft where if the battery is disconnected from the stereo, it must be "unlocked" with a "key" CD, that comes with the CD player but can later be changed to a personal CD of the owner. You would need to either call Eclipse and see if they can de-activate it (you'll need to ship it to them, if they even do it, because it is a security feature after all.) Or you need to talk to the last owner of the vehicle and have them unlock it.

If it is a stock radio then it may be from a different car. You will need to take the radio out or take the car to the dealer to get the code. I would just go and buy a new one and upgrade to a CD with MP3 capabilities. BMW troubleshooting fees are generally $60. Buy a new one.
