It's in the engine compartment IOD#2. It's a black module with two fuses in it. Take that module off and replace the 20 AMP one.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee battery will drain

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited and have intermittant battery drain problem. Problem started about 2-3 years ago and been to 2 Chrysler Jeep Dealers who cannot find issue. Out of the blue after car sits for a few days the battery will be completely drained (remotes will not open, etc) Jump start and is OK. had it towed dead to the dealer to troubleshoot but they cannot find a solution. We have replaced the battery, alternator and the dealer has flashed the computer system for the U-Connect which I saw a technical service bulletin that we thought could be the issue that it was not disconnecting completely. That seemed to fix the problem for a year but now this weekend after car sat for 2 days was completely dead. There is nothing being left on (no dome lights etc). Would greatly appreciate any thoughts/ideas!!!

Ditto here on a 2005 jeep. We bought it new and found the battery dead on a few mornings the first year. Nothing left on. Did the new alternator thing about 2 yrs. ago and a few batteries along the way. This is what we noticed..... If you leave a CD in the CD player, that is the prime little devil that sucks out the juice. Now, we never turn off the car while a CD is in the dash. Now, maybe not necessary every time, but always overnight and now by habit, all the time, we make sure there is no CD inserted when the car is off. Hope this helps.

Actually the newer cherokees are a little more complicated, it's not a reminder for an oil change. It is for an emssions service that should be performed according to the dealer. Here is the rest procedure

Turn ignition to on position, but do not start.
Depress brake pedal fully twice.
depress excellerator very slowly twice
Turn ignition off & that will reset the perform service indicator.
I am mechanic & we are getting frustrated because the dealers do not want to release this info to anyone, they want your money! Can you believe if you did not get them to perform the service they charge you a 1 hour shop rate??

Implausible fuel volume is the code,but it most likely was set from a bad ignition switch.It has to do with the malfunction of the switch,really setting a false code,and there might be another one also,but the ignition switch will correct the problem.

I have a C1035 code

I have a C1035 code that reads "Right Rear Wheel Comparative Performance". What can be do to fix it?

Replace the right rear wheel sensor, unless there is a great difference in tire circumference between the right rear tire and the rest of the tires. The sensor is your most likely culprit.

2005 Grand Cherokee Laredo 3.7 Transmission problem

I have a 2005 Grand Cherokee with the 3.7L and the Mercedes transmission. Recently, it has intermittently started to remain in first gear after coming to a stop in normal driving. The transmission will not upshift, and the auto stick will not let me go down through the gears, just stays in the D display. If I shut the car off, then restart it, it usually clears the problem for a varying time period. It seems to be getting more frequent, and just this evening I had to limp home the last 4 miles by stopping at least 3 times to shut it off and restart it. Tonight for the first time, a check engine light came on, so I put my ODBII scanner on it and it read a P0700 PCM fault, which looked up as a Transmission Control Electronic Failure. I have no way to scan actual transmission codes. Does anyone have nay idea what is causing this problem, has anyone experienced it? Any idea on cause and/or repair cost?

This started happening on my 05, 3.7L at around 45K miles. Usually once every two months, then I would shut off and back on and everything would be fine... Happened last week and I took to a private mechanic... Private mechanic said TCM needed to be flashed, and maybe replaced... Dealer said it would need to be replaced (of course)...I just got back from Dealer and it was covered under Powertrain warranty (only to 70K), but still cost $500 to replace the circuit board under the shifter... I dont think it shouldve cost that much, but I followed their advice so it hopefully wont happen again... Third jeep, each successsive one (each newer than the last) has more and more problems... Its sad that this will be my last jeep product...
