The power window motor commonly fails in the front and rear doors. This may require replacement of the complete window regulator assembly which will include the window motor.
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).
3.7 V6 and 4.7 V8 engines may develop exhaust leaks due to broken exhaust manifold bolts. Exhaust manifold gaskets and bolts should be replaced as necessary.
Temperature blend and recirculation doors commonly fail, which can cause the AC modes not to change or the temperature to be different on the left and right sides. If replacing blend air doors, a recirculation door, a door link, or a sub-assembly housing, new heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) sub-assemblies are available that improve reliability.
An engine misfire at idle (rough idle), accompanied by illumination or flashing of the Check Engine Light, could indicate a problem with one or more of the intake valves. Revised intake valves & valve locks are available to address this concern.

Had my battery checked and found that volt regulator was bad. Pulled the alternator and bench tested her. Turned out purfect. Alternator is only 7 mo. old. I hooked up a code saver to keep my code when the battery was disconnected. Oh! I work at Autozone so I have access to alot of neat things. ( I buy them and dont just borrow them) Thought I would clarify that. Put the alternator back in, but found the main wire was forced in. Simply put it together more gingerly. When I got off work went to start her up and the inside dome lights didn't work. A sign came on where my electronic odometer is and it said"NO FUSE" I'm thinking that the code saver didn't do its job, and now I have to wait. All the rest of my lights work except my interior lights(dome,under dash lights). This Jeep doesn't have problems. I've fixed them all, especially after the Audi Dealership changed my conventional to synthetic oil. No biggie, I simply put in 10W-30 Extended performance oil, mobile one filter, and a K&N air filter. Along with a new oil pan gasket after 30 days. That wasn't too bad. I rented a lift for $83 piad my friend 50 to help, and a case of Pepsi, plus $12 for my gasket, all this took was 90 minutes.
