  1. Jeep CJ Forum
    Good Day everyone, After ready several posts and trying serval things I need some advice. My Jeep battery will die if I don't drive it every week so I know its not a large drain. I have disconnected the negative cable and put a volt meter between the cable and battery. I get a reading of...
  2. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    Hello Everyone, about 2 months ago my 2008 CRD wouldn't start after stopping to fill up tank. Dash lights on but no crank at all... I removed the key and tried starting again successfully but very strong electric smell started permeating from the air vents for a while. This morning, same thing...
  3. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    First off - love the forum and the knowledge it contains. You guys rock!! :smile2: I have a 97 ZJ that has been running absolutely FINE with no issues. I shut the engine off today for a matter of minutes and when I went to crank it again it wouldn't turn over. All the dash lights lit up...
  4. Jeep CJ Forum
    I am finishing up my CJ5 project for my son and cleaning up the engine bay. My Anti-Diesel Solenoid is broken off the mount and completely rusted. Can I just remove it and cap the wires. Pretty sure it's the factory solenoid from 1978 so probably not operational anyway and the Jeep has never had...
  5. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    Hi: I am troubleshooting a 2007 WK Diesel with a non spinning Hydraulic fan. I can not get the fan to kick in turn on, or move at all actually. I am guessing solenoid is blocked or dead. Anybody have any experience with this on a WK Hemi or CRD? I have read a lot on the WJ threads, but it is a...
  6. Jeep CJ Forum
    I recently bought my 1974 CJ5 304 as a project/hobby to learn how to fix it. I began troubleshooting the wiring due to the engine not turning off when the ignition is turned off. Then I noticed the wiring wasn't correct on the alternator, voltage regulator and solenoid. I've corrected what I...
  7. General Jeep & Off-Road Equipment
    Hello all, I'd really appreciate any advice or assistance you guys could offer. This is holding back mounting my bumper and getting my rig on the road after a long time under construction. I'm usually pretty brave on experimenting but I don't want to wire it wrong and blow up my brand new...
  8. Jeep CJ Forum
    I tried to start my CJ7 today after sitting for 3 weeks for some body work. WHen I first turned the key it cranked ok. Then when I turned it again, nothing. Radio etc work fine and battery shows 13+ volts with a meter. I tried shorting across solenoid posts and nothing. Bought a new...
  9. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    Hi, I have a 2008 Grand Cherokee Overland with the 3.0 CRD engine. Recently when I start the vehicle there is a noise that sounds like metal on metal and when I turn the key to the off position the engine continues to run but it is runs very rough like it is only on 2 cylinders. When I then turn...
  10. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I'm wiring up an isolation solenoid between my TJ and a off road trailer battery. Please share with me your thoughts and builds. In particular the mounting location for the solenoid and 40amp thermal fuse. I'm considering the firewall area above the AC evaporator hoses, though I'm concerned...
  11. WJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I drive a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4.0L with a 14 bolt transmission pan. For the last month my jeep has been getting stuck gear after driving it around some and the rpms with rise to about 4000+ while going around 30 MPH before shifting up. Other times it gets stuck in a higher gear...
  12. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I've been having problems with the 42re in my 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0 and I'd like some advice. It's consistently throwing a P0740 code and shudders a lot at stop lights as if it's about to stall. Every now and then, it does actually stall when coming to a complete stop. When I was driving...
  13. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I’m going to try to make a long story short. ZJ with 220,000 has been having trans issues for some time now, nothing serious but still not normal. Has troubling shifting from 2-3 on the first shift of the drive (not sure if this is something to with temp or not). I scanned for codes and got...
  14. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Alright guys so I have a 2005 jeep Tj 4.0 automatic and it's got 140k miles on it. So the other day I was driving down the interstate and I had been driving 60mph for about an hour and my check engine light came on and so I just figured I would get it looked at the next day. Anyway I got to my...
  15. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I'm stumped. 01 XJ Sport. Largely stock under the hood; runs very strong, I fix stuff as soon as there is an issue. A few weeks ago I started having a confusing issue with electrical / ignition. It will appear to have a dead battery; nothing when I turn key. So, I jump it and it is fine...
  16. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    OK, first and foremost, my jeep is a DD, and I am not a mechanic by any stretch. Please respond using layman's terms to the best of your ability! Jeep was left outside last night in -40 F with windchill. Today would not start. Maybe I cranked too much. I smelled something "burning" under the...
  17. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I am about to replace my od solenoid and my question is, arent overdrive and the tc lockup controlled by the same solenoid? If so, then my solenoid wouldnt need to be replaced cause the tc still locks up. Unless there are two seperate contacts on the one piece.
  18. Jeep CJ Forum
    Hello, I'm having a starting problem with my 1978 jeep cj 7 with an AMC 360 engine. I have a new alternator and new battery. When I turn the key, I hear the starter solenoid click, the jeep doesn't start and then my voltmeter will go to zero volts until I disconnect the battery lead and...
  19. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    Yesterday I climbed into the 1988 Cherokee, turned the key, and all I got was CLICK. Tried some more with the same result. I figured the starter is shot - it's probably original. Today in anticipation of a trip to autozone for a new starter, I degreased and pressure-washed the old starter and...
  20. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have a 99 TJ with a 2.5L and 3 Speed Automatic. 32rh I believe. When going down the road and the converter is in lockup the jeep will jerk at 45mph on any kind of incline. Never at 40 and never at 50 but always at 45mph. It's driven me nuts to the point that I mounted a switch inside that I...
