1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Problems

Brakes -- Verified

Due to warped front brake rotors or variations in the thickness of the rotors, brake pulsations may develop. The best method to reduce pulsations is to use an "On the Car" brake lathe (as long as the rotors are suitable for turning). "On the Car" equipment can correct variations (or "runout") in the rotor surfaces because it also corrects variations in other components (e.g. the hub).

Drive Train -- Verified

Leaks at the front and/or rear differential pinion seal and from the transfer case are common. Leakage from the transfer case normally occurs at the case-mating surfaces and require removal of the transfer case to reseal.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Loose or worn suspension and steering components can cause a wobble or shaking in the steering wheel. It may happen at a certain speed and subside as the vehicle accelerates through the range. Tire balance can contribute to this as well.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Failure in the blower motor power module (automatic temperature controls) or resistor block (manual AC) may cause the heater blower motor to work only on the high setting. The connector to the power module/resistor block is known to overheat (and sometimes melt). The connector or terminals should be replaced; a replacement connector is available.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The AC/heater (HVAC) system may unexpectedly switch to the defrost mode when accelerating. This system is operated by engine vacuum and should be inspected for any vacuum leaks if this problem develops.  There is also a revised vacuum check valve available to address this concern.

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., May 5, 1993

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokees because when the grease was applied to the liftgate latch rubber bumpers to ease component assembly, it caused the bumper to swell. This may prevent the liftgate from latching when closed and make it difficult to open when latched. If the liftgate opens when the car is in motion, an occupant could fall out. Dealers will replace the liftgate assembly on affected vehicles.
