Thanks for the feedback!
Finally! Other Jeeps with the same problem. I have identical year/make and constantly have the message display telling me to 'service 4 wheel drive switch' beep beep. The warn…ing message varies with frequency, displays once or twice a month, sometimes all day for a week. The only place I found the word 'switch' was in a Jeep repair manual. the switch was located in the Transfer case & the manual said don't touch,see a professional. I've been driving like this for months. I see the message above, their jeep switch was replaced but the computer warning still flashes. Any luck out there? According to the mechanic who works on my 94 Jeep it's one of three things. 1) Corrosion on the connector to the switch (which is located on top of the transfer case). 2) A bad switch. Part cost about $22.00 or 3) A bad console display. he says they have had a fair number of console display units fail. That one runs about $240. My Jeep display it only once in a while. I have checked the connections and they are fine so the switch replacement is next. If that doesn't fix it I will opt to ignore the error. try disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes. bad news .. you have to reset your clock and radio presets .. good news this may reset the info ctr computer and get rid of the message providing that the switch fixed the problem . It was explained to me that sometimes the computer gets a hiccup (I think it must be a windows platform lol) and a good old fashioned resetting is all it takes I have a '93 Grand Cherokee. When this same message started to display on and off, I ran to the dealer. After a year and two new switches, the message goes non-stop. I gave up and removed the chime disk in the under-dash box. The message still displays, but I don't have to hear it. I have a 95 GC that has ran the same message for the last 4 years. We have taken it to 3 mechanics and the said take it to the dealership, as they had never head of a 4WD switch. The dealereship didnt have a clue. It turns at the 99% of the time the problem is a bad Vehicle information center. It now constantaly runs a warning that the tail lights are out (even though they are orperating normally), and constantly resets itself back to January 1st at midnight. Not only that, the VIC is interfering with the alarm system, shutting down the starter, and of course causing starting problems. Here us a simple solution. Remove the VIC and throw it in the nearest body of deep water. i just unhooked the connector at the transfer case. cheap and effective. idiot lights are for idiots. Unplug the 4wd Switch Sensor on top of the trasfer case. Tape it up to something secure. Ha i just had the same thing happen to me tonight on my 94 grand Cherokee Laredo. i was like so i put it in N, then the transfercase in N then in 4L then put the trans in 1st, moved forward a couple feet then back into N and back into 4AllTime and it hasent come back on, mind you my jeep has over 175k so i guess that's expected. if you unplug the chime disk then the power doors locks wont lock, anyone else have an idea how to get the chime go away
thermostat location locate the upper radiator hose on your radiator and follow it to the engine block it is located on the top front part of your engine and you m…ust lean over the front and look down onto the block to see the thermostat housing.
Answer On the bottom of the Radiator.
Answer try taking your foot off the gas as you are turning The most reason this would be is that you have a 5.2L V8 this… one has a model 249 Transfer case. It has what is called a Viscus Cupler that supplies approx 60% power to the rear wheels, and 40% to the front. This is why you will have a skipping action with sharp corners. It is normal. Emagine the old time skating ring when you were the one on the outside of the chain around the corners. You went faster than the one closest to the middle of the skating ring. this is what is happening with your front and rear end of the jeep. Dont worry if you have the V8. If you do not have the V8, then let me know, I can help you find the problem with it. Jeeper186
What damage can happen to a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo if you switch from 4 hi to 4 lo wheel drive while the engine is in drive?
Answer I bet it made a nice grinding sound didnt it? Yes, it can if you are going too fast. If it actually goes into low gear it will seriously spike the r…pms and potential valve and lifter damage. This is what a rev limiter helps avoid though. If the engine sounded like it started sputtering when this happened then it is a good thing. It is one of those situations that you just have to let it go to see if it breaks. Good luck.

Answer i have heard a vehicle speed sensor can cause it but not sure
This operation is of moderate difficulty and can be done with hand tools. First the battery cables should be disconnected. Second, the tensioner pulley should be depressed… to free the serpentine belt. At this point the alternator can be unbolted from the its engine accessory mount. The new alternator, belt, and cables can then be reinstalled and connected, in that order.
Jeep does not use inertia/reset switches.
The Grand Cherokee is constant 4wd. The switch on the console (if equipped) puts it into low range 4wd.

Rear wheel drive with option of either four wheel drive or all wheel drive.
Pull the lever that is just left of the shifter. If your vehicle is not going into 4WD then you should make sure all tires have the same tread depth and that your transf…ercase has fluid in it.
