You can order the part and save some labor but not much. It only takes 30 minutes to take off the cable from underneath the chassis. You can get step by step instructions from autozone.com by registering fro free and then register your jeep...all for free. Thanks for using FixYa. By the way I dad the same problem on my 4x4 Ranger.

I suspect that without your thermostat your problem still exists but just isn't showing the syptoms and the reason is that while your vehicle is warming up it runs in an "open loop" state which means that based on preset values that "should exist" it gives the engine a set amount of air and fuel for the RPM's that the engine is running at. Once your vehicle reaches operating temperature it switches to a "closed loop" state which means that the vehicle then ignores the preset values that it was running on and starts to read the actual values that your engine has, and gives it the air/fuel mixture based on those readings, (coolant temp, air temp, exhaust temp, etc...) The fact that you don't have the thermostat installed leads me to believe that your engine isn't reaching operating temperature and thus isn't switching into the "closed loop" state. The code you have is "bank 1 lean" which essentially means that the oxygen sensor is saying the air/fuel mixture doesn't have enough fuel in it when it enters the combustion chamber. This problem can occur many different ways some include; worn fuel pump, worn fuel pressure regulator, bad oxygen sensor or oxygen sensor electrical circuit, etc.. myself I would start by checking to make sure that the fuel pressure is within spec and that the oxygen sensor is working (need diagnostic tool and thermostat installed).

There is a fuse box under the hood on the passenger side remove the cover and the #10 fuse is for the headlamps. Look on under side of cover for fuse #s.

Do they work intermittently? Do your low beams go out sometimes when you put on turn signal? Do hazards work sometimes and if you play with switch they work off and on? I just had a problem with headlights would go off if I put on turn signal and if I jiggled the turn lever they would come back on and had trouble with all light working intermittently, brakes, turn and hazard. It was a Turn signal switch problem.The contacts in the switch were bad, all corroded and green when I took it apart. I know you wouldn't think this would affect brake lights but hey all run through this switch because of hazards and high beams. I got a new switch from dealer and all is working great now. Here's a link a link I used for switch replacement instructions. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/write-up-replace-turn-signal-switch-97-xj-620147/
If it isn't a fuse or wiring issue I would look into the switch.

You can try a new oil pump, but in my 30 plus years 99 out of 100 your bearings are gone! you would have to pull the oil pan to do oil pump so i would pull 2 or3 main crank caps and check bearings if badly scrached or copper spots showing through aliumun coating there is your low oil press. probiem.you will need a new motor sorry.

Sounds like its a bad blower motor connector,Find blower motor connector and perform a wiggle test while turning fan switch up and down.Also look at connector for melted wires or the connector itself.Hope this helps!!

I do not know about your specific vehical, but I do know that jeep owners run some of the best online forums in the world. I am sure it will give step by step directions on how to install the skid plate. I hope this helps! Please give me a 4 thumbs up review!

There is a head temp sensor and intake air temp sensor, either of which could make the mixture too lean. Check them with an ohmmeter. Not sure the exact reading, but bad ones usually go 0 or infinite.

Check the backside of the glove box when removed for the fuse box legend.

Something odd about what you posted. An engine that is running lean shouldn't be using a lot of fuel. Lean is when there isn't enough fuel going into the engine. Two other sensors that regulate fuel flow are the map sensor and throttle position sensor. Temp sensor generally would cause a rich condition but I'd test that too. Be sure to check for vacuum leaks at the manifold and lines as well as fittings... A vacuum leak will give the O2 sensor a lean reading...seeing that, the computer will try to compensate by adding fuel. Clearing codes can change the way it's running but as soon as the computer runs through it's internal diagnostics it will turn the light back on if there is a problem.

Check the horn relay, it's in the power distribution center. That is the black box under the hood next to the battery. The diagram on the inside of the lid specifies which is the horn relay.

use a digital voltage meter on the battery to verify the 'spikes', Jeep Wrangler gauges are notorious for being erratic (I have a 98 TJ, how's your gas gauge working?)-

the printed circuit board gets weird due to water leaks that find their way to the back of the pod from the top of the roof seal, so it is not unusual for gauges to act strangly.

If that is not the case, it is time for a new alternator.
