Question From bonniefran on Ford Explorer Jeep 1994 Model Gear Problem

Hello,
Please help me out. I just acquired a Ford Explorer Jeep 1994 Model. This is an auto-gear selecting model and the gear selection system is malfunctioning. If the Jeep is selected on forward, it would only go backward. I have never used the jeep since acquired. Pls assist with the best technical advise I need to resolve this problem.

Thanks

First, please explain what a Ford Explorer Jeep is. You have me extremely confused. Explorer and Jeep are 2 completely different manufacturers.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Went around with PM with this. It's an Explorer only. The name "Jeep" is being used generically. I suggested the shift linkage was broken in such a way it could only move as far as reverse - haven't heard more about it,

Question From Guest on Jeep Comanche

Where do I fnd the horn on a 1992 Jeep Comanche?

Response From DrElectrics Top Rated Answer

It will be in your user manual. If not, go to your nearest Jeep Dealer and ask them. It won't cost you anything. Why do you need to find the horn?

Question From kopeck on 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee starts fine shuts off after a few seconds

I just replaced an ignition switch in a 2000 Jeep grand cherokee, Laredo. Prior to putting the switch in I left the jeep for 3 weeks without running. After installing the new switch I charged the battery fired up the Jeep only to find it ran for a few seconds and died(the jeep starts great just shuts off like it is starving for gas). I attempted to rev the engine which it did but just died. Someone told me to to spray a starter fluid into the intake , when I did the jeep would go to stall and then run as long as I fed it the fliud. Anyone have any ideas what I should try now??

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

Do you have any security light on or flashing when you try to start it? If not, have the fuel pressure read with a gauge.

Response From kopeck

Hello;

I checked out the jeep,you know usually I have a red light that flashes on my dash and it is not flashing could something be up with my anti-theft or security since I changed my ignition switch??

Response From Hammer Time

It certainly could.

Response From kopeck

Any suggestions on what to do?

Response From Hammer Time

If you have a problem with the factory security system, then diagnosis is beyond your capability because you will need factory scan tools.

Response From kopeck

Hammer Time;

Friend has a scanner he just bought, we are going to give it a try tonight I will let you know what the outcome is. I definitely think you nailed the issue though. I also spoke to the folks that sold me the ignition switch and confirmed your observation.

Response From Hammer Time

I don't know what your friend bought but if he didn't pay over $4000 for it, it's not going to do the trick and even some of them won't.

Response From kopeck

Paid $5000 and changed didn't make over yesterday coming over tonight keeping fingers crossed

Response From Hammer Time

That should be able to read it.

Response From kopeck

This keeps getting better, spoke to Dealer they said some of the electronics on the older Jeeps can't be reprogrammed, suggested I reinstall the old electronic ignition along with my old lock set, to see if that helps. I'm going crazy here. But your continued efforts are appreciated.

thanks Kopeck

Response From Hammer Time

That could be true. Many cars have to replace the security module when the ignition is replaced if it uses a dedicated module that's not programmable. GM did it with Passkey for years.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

IDK - This begs lots of info. Why did the ignition switch need replacing to begin with?
Was the battery dead as you said you charged it to start it after 3 weeks?

Do you know how this security system is supposed to work if it works properly? It used to blink now it doesn't?


Aftermarket set up or what?

Not sure it's even involved but it sure lacks fuel by description or fuel delivery. That could be a failure of empowering fuel pump after cranking or perhaps it just can't keep up at all OR injectors quit getting a pulse.

Need to start ruling things in or out but think some issue with security system is part of it so far,

Question From Traci K on My 2007 Jeep Liberty will not start, could it be the starter???

My jeep will not start! 2007 Jeep Liberty, V6, 62,000.

My battery died 2 weeks ago, took it in to be charged and jeep started. Today :( It did not start again, bought new battery, put it in...jeep started then died, two more times it did this, now it will not even turn over. all lights work, no sound when trying to start. I am new to Arizona from Nebraska and worried about looking for a new mechanic with out at least having an idea of what my problem is.

Response From GC

Need to get that battery charged and tested. Often, they do not have a good charge straight off the shelf, especially if theyve been sitting there a while without being maintained.

Response From Traci K Top Rated Answer

Thank you for the reply...tried this, the battery is good.

Response From nickwarner

Have you taken the connections off and cleaned them nice and shiny? If the connection isn't good it won't matter how good your battery is. A top post terminal cleaner is only a couple bucks at any parts store.

When you move to a new area and don't know who is good to take your car to, a site like angie'slist might be a good idea to try out. Its sorted by area and you can see reviews about shops, plumbers, carpenters, pretty much everything in service industry.
