Listen at the hatch lid when open and you work the remote lock/unlock on your key ring. You should hear the noise of the locking motor working. It is located near the bottom of the hatch towards the drivers (left) side of the hatch. If you hear a noisy motor, you know the wiring etc is OK. Then your problem is probably a worn out motor or linkage. If all the passenger doors lock and unlock OK and if the hatch lock notor makes no noise when activated it may be a bad wiring connection or a bad motor. You'll have to take off the inner plastic cover from the hatch and check out the wiring/motor etc. If all the door locks and the hatch do not work then check the fuse for that circuit Hope this helps Dave S

Can you replace a 96 Jeep Cherokee radiator with a 96 jeep leredo radiator?

the Laredo is a Cherokee. it's just a different trim package. there's also the briarwood, sport, wagon, etc. it's all the same. yes, the radiators are the same. so is EVERYTHING ELSE in or on the vehicle. so, you could buy the electric seats from a Laredo and put them in a sport. or you could by the rear hatch with the wiper and put it on a briarwood. as long as you have the wiring and switches you can change the trim on any Cherokee. as far as the drivetrains they are exactly the same... As long as you are not trying to put a Grand Cherokee radiator in a regular Cherokee.

Where can I buy lifts for back hatch for 1997 Grand Cherokee Laredo.?

You should be able to get them through autopart stores. You can also go to a auto recycler and have them get them from one of their vehicles. You can always get them from the dealer if this fails. Also try looking on line at a "crash parts" dealer. This is a place that sells parts to repair wrecked vehicles.

If its the rear, open the rear hatch. Look on the side of the taillight, you will see 2 screws. remove them and pull the tail light out, and you will see 3 grey sockets. Untwist it about 1/4 turn and pull it out. The bulb can then be pulled out, and it should be a 3157 bulb.

On my 94 Jeep, you can disarm the security by unlocking the hatch with the key. So, you don' HAVE to buy a new remote, but it is more convenient than going to the back of the car and turning the key every time the security light comes on.
