    Ok. I bought this 88 jeep Cherokee and I’ve been doing the work to turn it into my snow rig. But here’s my issue. My alternator was not charging. When I bought the jeep it was supplied with a new alt. I replaced and added an extra cable from the positive post on the back of the alternator plus...
  2. Jeep Grand Cherokee & Commander Forums
    My 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited just died on me going down the road I’m assuming it’s because of the alternator and I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on what to check to make sure that’s the problem the alternator is relatively new but I am running a bigger battery and I don’t...
  3. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    Greetings fellow Jeep people! 2008 WK Jeep Grand Cherokee - 3.0L Diesel, 205k miles Last week the alternator went out (probably from oil weeping out of the oil fill cap). I replaced the alternator, which is a decent project in itself, and everything was great until a day later when the battery...
  4. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hello JeepForum! I have a 97 wrangler sport, fully built, fully capable, fully fun... aside from this one thing. The serpentine belt squeaks no matter what I do. I tried replacing the belt and that didn't work, so I replaced EVERYTHING in the serpentine belt assembly, water pump, steering pump...

    I have a 97 Cherokee sport 4L with a strange electrical problem. My Volt-Meter reads normal 14V when I start the engine but jumps to 19V after 12 secs; it does not fluctuate, stays at 19V. However everything works fine (except for the check gauges on the dashboard turns on as soon as the volt...

    Hi It has been a little bit more than a year since my last post and also the last day I worked on my Jeep I'm rewiring the Jeep , have almost everything figured out, but I have no idea how to rewire the alternator. The EZ-Wire comes with 2 cables for the alternator: Red - Alternator Power -...

    Original trustworthy gauge. Volt meter pins at 16+ volts. Thought it was the gauge. Erratic drop to normal 12-14 volts, idle rpm increased. Spike back up to 16+ volts, idle rpm drops (engine under load). Unpredictable back and forth between pinned gauge and normal readings. Failing voltage...
  8. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I have been having a new problem with my Jeep. I put a new alternator, starter, battery terminals, and battery. These parts were all switched out within the last month. I switched them out in response to my Jeep stalling when I would come to a stop. I stopped having that issue, and now I am...

  10. Jeep CJ Forum
    So I got in my CJ this morning and it started up fine. I was letting warm up for 10 minutes or so before leaving for work. When I got in it to leave I noticed the lights (head lights and dash lights) were dim. Everything got brighter when I revved it up, indicating alternator issues. Then all of...

  12. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hello everyone! I have a 2000 TJ wrangler. I've had it for about 6 months and have had almost no issues with it. Except one. About 3 months after I got my monster, I accidentally left my lights on and drained the battery. I jumped it and drove off with no issues. For the next few weeks I...
  13. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    I have an 07 Commander that won't start. I am pretty sure it's the alternator but I'll give you the details anyway because I am a female who can admit it when she's wrong :thumbsup: Initially it wouldn't start. When I turn the key, the dash lights up, windows work etc but it doesn't start. The...
  14. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    My ZJ has a new battery, new alternator, and clean terminals and will not charge. If I charge it up it will turn on, but about a min later the battery gauge drops to zero. My next guess is to replace the alternator plugs. Also, the battery is oversized, but I was told that shouldn't be an...
  15. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    My 1996 Grand Cherokee will turn on if I charge the battery, but after about a minute of running, I get check gauges light and the battery gauge drops to zero. I have replaced the battery, and the alternator I just replaced anyway. I tried cleaning the terminals. My next guess is replacing...
  16. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Hey All, 1998 XJ 4.0 - Automatic. Noticed "spike" in voltage last week. Would run around 20 volts. Assumed it was bad ground. Checked all grounds, appeared to be fine. This happened a couple times, but the alternator has since been acting normal (14V). Now the thing won't start. When I put...
