1997 Jeep Wrangler - Page 9 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


You didn't mention if you ever rotated the tires. I suggest you get them re-balanced and put the fronts on the rear. I recommend putting them front to back without crossing them. There's been an argument about that for many years and I still believe that crossing will cause belts to shift inside the tire and that can cause it to fail if you reverse the rolling rotation, especially if no rotation has been done for a long time. (rotate about once a year) It may also be a good idea to replace your front shock absorbers. Unless you live somewhere it gets very hot, I'd also run your tire pressure at 35psi. If you normally run it lower, it may feel a bit hard at first but it's easy to get used to and the tires will last longer.

Hi,
Check the fuse to the gauges, also check your main fuse in the engine compartment.
It is possible that these are all connected to the same fuse.

Thanks

I would suggest getting an oil pressure test done before anything you don't want to be driving and actually have no oil pressure, but I have seen time and time again faulty oil pressure sensors ( oil sending units) faulty on jeeps.

It's possible that the altenator is worn out ( brushes worn down ) The action of starting the engine vibrates the altenator and the brushes contac for awhile. after it quits try wrapping on the altenator with a stick and see if it comes on. If it does take the altenator to the store with you and traded it in for a rebuilt unit.

The first thing i would check is the crankshaft position sensor, I have seen the wires for the sensor melt on the exhuast, i would also check the oxygen sensor harnesses for the same concern. shorted sensor wires will cause powertrain control module to shut down.

INTERMITTENT BATTERY DRAINS ARE HARD TO FIND. TURN OFF ALL SWITCHES IN THE VEHICLE. MAKE SURE THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT LITE IS GOING OUT. OPEN THE HOOD. CLOSE ALL THE DOORS. MAKE SURE ALL OF THE COURTESY LITES ARE GOING OFF. DISABLE ANY UNDER THE HOOD LIGHTS. REMOVE THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE. USE A 12 VOLT TEST LIGHT, FASTEN ONE END TO A GOOD GROUND, { METAL PART OF THE MOTOR} . FASTEN THE OTHER END TO THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL OF THE BATTERY. IF THE TEST LIGHT LIGHTS UP THERE IS A BATTERY DRAIN. IF NO LIGHT , NO DRAIN. IF THE LIGHT IS ON LOOK IN THE FUSE/RELAY BOX NEAR THE BATTERY. PULLOUT THE FUSES, LARGE & SMALL ONE AT A TIME, IF THE LIGHT STAYS ON PUT THE FUSE BACK IN TRY THE NEXT FUSE. WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT, THAT IS THE CIRCUIT CAUSING THE DRAIN. IF IT NEVER GOES OUT, DISCONNECT THE ALTERNATOR. IF THAT MAKES THE LIGHT GO OUT, THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE ALTERNATOR. IF THE LIGHT IS NEVER ON, YOU MAY HAVE TO DO THIS ANOTHER DAY TO FIND THE DRAIN. ALSO HAVE THE NEW BATTERY RECHECKED.

wipers and washers usually have a fuse,
i may be mixed with another fuse.
the best thing to do is check each fuse in turn and see if one is blown or has
corroded connections.


I hope this was helpful.

Assuming that you have a TJ with round sealed beam lights, you must remove the chrome bezel that covers the four removal screws that hold the light in place. Remove the four screws, pull back the ring that holds the light in, and separate the light from the ring. Pull off the plug (gently) from the back of the light and there you have it.Installation is the reverse of removal. Lights cost about $10-$15 ea. depends on where you get them.

Here's something to try, Locate your horn in the front of the Jeep. Look on the back of the horn, and you will see a little button sticking out. Take a pair of pliers and turn it from side to side. It will loosen the diaphragm. See if the horn works. Hope this helps
