The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the United States is entrusted with the authority to regulate and oversee road safety and vehicle standards. This agency, operating under the Department of Transportation (DOT), sets safety standards for vehicles and equipment, regulates fuel economy to reduce emissions, investigates and enforces vehicle recalls for safety defects, collects and analyzes crash data, promotes road safety through education, conducts research, and works to prevent vehicle theft. NHTSA's core mission is to enhance road safety, save lives, and reduce traffic-related injuries and accidents through various regulatory, enforcement, and educational initiatives.
How do you treat an air bag burn
The Select button and the set button, hold them down together, should reset with in a couple of seconds.
Try tuging on the steering wheel while trying to turn the key. Check the position of the front wheels, they can transmit tension back up the steering colum and lick the ignition switch.
go to your local part store an pick up some wheel spacers
It's on the bottom of the transfer case. It's a large white/yellowed sensor with a 2 wire connector.
try the driver side fender or the fuse panel under the hood
There is a plastic twist off cap on the passenger side of the intake. The pcv is there.
On the differential there should be a plug with a 3/8 or 1/2 inch square on it that you can use a socket wrench to remove, just stick your finger in and feel if there is fluid. If there is no fluid, fill to that level.
It takes a few seconds for the oil pump to fill the oil filter and then pressurize the engine's lubrication system.
If your Jeep has the earlier AMC based 4.0, 4.2, or 6.0 liter engines, the oil filter is rather large and takes a few seconds longer to fill. If you change your own oil, you can prefill the filter with oil if the filter mounts with the filter pointing upwards... horizontal mounting makes for a mess.
If you change the oil and the pressure registers within 6 or 7 seconds of start-up and idle, there is no damage to the engine. I have had an engine that was run for three or four 15 second runs without damage (I made an oops installing an oil pump and it wouldn't prime).
If you are concerned about oil pressure, have the engine checked with an external pressure gage. If the pressure is below specifications, the pump may be worn and is taking too long to build up pressure after an oil change. The AMC pumps give long service and usually only need replacement after very high milage.
It is under the hood on the right (passenger side) of the vehicle up next to the fire wall to the rear of the coolant recovery tank. Do not turn the freon canister upside down when filling this port and the engine is running. It will cause liquid to go to the pump and destroy your pump. Make sure you wear safety glasses and gloves when you work with this, as the freon absorbs huge amount of moisture and it will absorb quickly into your eyes if sprayed or spilled. The high pressure connection is on the side of the A/C pump near the front of the engine on the left (driver's) side.
The transmission range sensor it the sensor for the automatic transmission to find all the shift points in the shifting of all gears.
if this goes bad it could cause a lot of shifting problems and even braking problems i have heard of people losing control of the vehicle while driving on the free way. The free way is were you will feel most of the symptoms for the range sensor.
i would get this fixed Asap!
1. do it your self the sensor cost about $20 to $70 depending on what vehicle.
and it located on the top of your transmission by the shifter. and has 2 bolts and needs to be aligned correctly.
2. call the dealer for help on do it your self or pay them to fix it about $200 - $600 depends on vehicle . this is a average amount for dealer or shops .
(Note) the shops will be cheaper than a dealer .
(Notes) for do it your self:
Get a manual for your car or call dealer for guides and diagrams.
get a Haynes Repair Manual

procedure, you can register for a free account at www.hmaservice.com (requires Internet
To replace the switch, you'll need a ratchet, long extension, and 10mm and 14mm sockets. If
you need to remove the battery tray-- I cannot recall if it's in the way-- you'll also need a 12mm
1. Apply the parking brake.
2. Place the vehicle in neutral and turn the ignition switch to the accessory position.
3. Unplug the range switch.
4. Remove the 14mm nut and lock washer holding the shifter arm in place on the switch.
5. Remove the shifter arm from the selector shaft.
6. Remove the 10mm bolts holding the range switch in place.
7. Remove the range switch and install the new switch.
8. Install the 10mm bolts finger tight and then back them off 1/2 turn.
9. Install the lever onto the selector shaft.
10. Install the lock washer and securely tighten the 14mm nut.
11. Make sure the shift lever inside the car is still in the neutral position.
12. Align the hole in the range switch with the hole in the shift lever.
13. Securely tighten the two 12mm bolts.
14. Plug in the range switch.

The link below provides a pdf document on a site i found that had documents and pictured instructions for the replacement or a trans sensor on a automatic transmission.
This is the best instructions i could find on this transmission range sensor.
Hope This all help you with this problem .

There should be a lamp on the dashboard with something like 4 wheels and lines between them, when you turn on/off your AWD, this lamp should be on or off. Other systems show this kind of information on display. Anyway most of the cars are permanently AWD, FWD or RWD.
Maybe because there's no such car? The last year for the Cherokee was 2001.
I had the same problem on my 2003 jeep grand cherokee. One reason it will stay on is after you wash it or a good amount of water gets in the engine. If it is below freezing the water freezes in the radiator causing the fan to continuously run
e heat echgers go bad in the seat, call the a jeep dealer it might be a recal. it is in my 2001.
This problem was a recall issue for Chrysler and they should repair it at no cost. You're lucky!!!! The seat heater has two fail modes...stops working or seat catches on fire.
Depends on what year the Jeep was made. Most Jeeps use a fuel rail that receives fuel from the fuel tank, and under pressure, feeds fuel injector plugs located inside the manifold housing. Novice car repair people think the fuel injectors are the spark plugs (spark plugs have flexible wires leading from the distributer cap to the tops of the spark plugs.) Hope this helps.
Its a tough job. You have to remove the dash panel, including the steering wheel and steering column and then remove the plenum box which involve evacuating the refrigerant system and draining the radiator. Once you get the heater box out, replacing the heater core will take about 10min and then you have to put it all back together and recharge the AC and fill the radiator.
If you are seeing leak problems with the system, you will have to go through this process. If the problem is lack of heat and/or AC control, the problem is more likely the blend door. This is a common fail on the Cherokee. You can get diagnostic information and an inexpensive fix on the HeaterTreater web site. Follow my user name to my Bio Page for a pointer or just search heatertreater on any search engine. ford4me
You need to loosen a couple of things, but its pretty straight forward. The bolt for the air tube junction so you can move the bracket, then you can take out the front fuel line, then simply unloosen the nuts to the fuel rail and slowly lift one end or the other. If its a middle injector take it off completely and use some Parker lube of vaseline and put them all back in lubed. Remember to mark/label you injector wires or just keep in mind where they go. I have used aftermarket ones with pretty good results, but I've learned look at them all closely cause after I've changed one, it didn't take long for another to go out. make sure you also change your fuel filter crap in the gas will clog them easily. later
Well you really cant, its set by the computer, using information from all of the sensors. If it does in fact have to high an idle speed you need to find out what is causing it, most likely a bad sensor of some sort.
go to this link it took me a while to find it even though i have the chiltons and haynes for it http://www1.autozone.com/az/cds/en_us/0900823d/80/15/3f/bc/0900823d80153fbc/repairInfoPages.htm
it could possibly be the battery or the alternator check both. from the way it sounds that the alternator is going out and is making the battery work to hard and causeing it to go bad it could possibly be the battery or the alternator check both. from the way it sounds that the alternator is going out and is making the battery work to hard and causeing it to go bad
It may fit, but it is not plug and play. The computer and trans systems are different.
As you stand in front of your Jeep, the radiator drain plug sticks out the bottom of the left side. With a large gathering container on the floor, loosen the drain plug with an open-end wrench (or more suitable tool if you have one) only until the coolant flows through the spout, it's made so you don't have to (or want to) completely remove it. Now empty, you can either use a flush-N-fill kit, or if you're on a budget, run water at moderate pressure through a garden hose at the radiator cap opening for 20-30 seconds and let it drain. Tighten the drain plug and refill with a good mix 60/40 or whatever's best for where you live. [Take care to refill slowly - even though OEM radiators are supposed to purge air pockets, I had already installed a new aftermarket radiator and didn't want to take any chances. Air pockets can cause cooling system malfunctions and engine damage in a general sense, I'm not enough of a technician to list specifics.] Good luck !
The neutral safety switch on any standard transmission is located behind the clutch pedal arm, and activated when the clutch pedal is fully depressed. the neutral safety switch is located behind the clutch pedal arm in any standard tranny car that has one, it is activated by fully depressing the clutch.
The headlight assembly is held in with four bolts: two on the top, one underneath, and one that connects the headlight assy to the turn signal assy. The frame can be removed from the headlight by carefully prying at the adjustment pins.
