I'm not sure I'm crystal clear on your description of the PCM wires, but your general weirdness sounds similar to the kinds of things we've been diagnosing with our WJ. If I'm understanding...

Yup, I'd definitely seen the user you reference come up during my search. For me, the hardest part will be finding a donor. This particular vintage seems to be super-rare up here, and the few we've...

It is indeed the PCM we're talking about. My mechanic thinks he has a line on one from a reputable establishment, in stock. Waiting to see how that plays out.

I'm going to head over to the mechanic's and lay eyes on this myself. And get some photos. Stay tuned. :-)

What I was told over the phone was engine bay, passenger side, attached to the firewall. He said "under the PCM", and "two connectors". I plan to pop over today and lay eyes on it myself and take...

Wj Looks like I need an ECM for my 2000 4.7l. Any good sources?

We'd been trying to pin down "weirdness" in our 2000 Laredo 4.7l (Canadian) for a while. It's intermittent (of course), and the visible behavior didn't lend itself to obvious conclusions. But...

Okay, educate me a bit here. When referencing "graphing scanner", what might be an example? I have an OBDLink MX with the software running on my tablet, which can product graphs. But I don't see an...

What I read at the time was the USB port in the pre-2018 hub wasn't compatible with CarPlay/Android Auto. Details were vague, but I think it was related to data speed. My understanding was you can...

I call it the "squash the rear passenger if they don't remember to leap out before I put it in Park" feature.

I believe you may be in the wrong forum, but I know with my 2017 WK2 Overland, the owners manual does say that if it's left open for a long period of time, you won't be able to close it via the...

You also need to check the volume on the phone itself. My Android phone "helpfully" lowers the Bluetooth volume ("to avoid hearing damage") and if you crank it up during a call so you can hear, it'll...

I believe, but have no real way to prove it, is that the temperature setting is always "automatic". As in; no matter what else is set anywhere; if you have the system set to 77F, then it will always...

Thanks for that report. I've spent many hours inside dashboards of various vehicles over the years, so I have no concerns about the install.
I seem to recall last year Infotainment had a "Black...

On my '17 Overland, they don't go off, just dim. Depending on the photo, they might appear to be on.



I used AppCar to disable the "winking" effect when signaling, which I always found...

Cool. I recently jumped from Windows Phone to Android. My wife's vehicle has CarPlay/AndroidAuto, and I can see the benefit. I can see myself doing this upgrade in my Overland, since it *appears* I'd...

To clarify, you only lose remote start via the uConnect app right? Normal remote start via the key fob still works?


I ask because I'm toying with this option for my '17 Overland. Being in...

I'm pretty sure the USB ports on the UConnect aren't beefy enough to provide the current requirements to charge today's larger cell phones. So a "slow charging" isn't a surprise to me. But I'd try a...

The EVIC won't be aware of the battery status of the fob. Would be nice, but not currently something it does.


If you have the keyless entry system, remember that your fob is basically...

I do indeed, and I activated the "fogs with high" feature. I live out in the country where critters like to lurk on the shoulder in the tall grass just waiting for the right moment to leap out. :-)
