Myn dose the same thing.. but it dosnt bother me to much i am used to it so thats on the bottom of the list.. a guy at work has the same GC as myn and he did what you did and it fixed the problem!. i might get him to give me a hand on myn.
-1998 grand cherokee 5.9- custom intake, MTX sledge hammer sub with two JBL audio speakers in the rear doors and JVC deck, Westin safari bar with two 6' lights, Yakima load warrior with reverse lights, Hooker aero chamber muffler.
well im going to join the party and tell you all that mine has been pissing me off alot for the past 3 months... especially after it was telling me coolant temp. sensor bad and now this message! couldn't figure it out for the life of me because the one in my reserve works because that one says low and i just filled it up and it went away. If you wanna check and see if your reserve sensor works remove some of the coolant or all and start your jeep, drive a little bit or let it idle and your warning should come on that says low coolant level. Simply refill the tank and see if the message goes away, if it does, the sensor is still good and go with what phil says and ripping your VIC apart. I have yet to get the time to do it but if that works I owe him tons
I almost want to print this off and bring it to the dealer and start a recall on it. If they don't want to I will have Mike Cox (the state of Michigan attorney general) take care of this since he did the same for me on a 2000 dollar dash problem with a CL 500 Mercedes I have. We will see how long it takes tho..

he mentioned how to check the coolant level sensor to see if it was the cause. THEN he went into how to fix it IF it WASNT the cause.
oh and i just love when people use the search function to find a post and then bring it back to life.... if a thread hasnt been replied to in over a year it should be automatically locked to prevent this

Well that did the trick. thanks, Checked the solder joints for cracks, and there they were. solderd them up and no more beeping and warning. Great post.

I tried this fix on my 98 limited and I fried my VIC before I even got to solder it ...it doesnt even work now. I guess I will have to get another one and hope that was the problem. Is it bad to drive without a VIC for awhile???
