I need front diff work...pinion gear any estimates?

When my headlights are on, the front passenger side headlight is on but its very dim. The headlight on the driver's side is normal. On the tailight on the passenger side the turn signal light stays on permanently when the headlights are switched on but it is dim. And on the overhead message center in the vehicle (where is says the temperature and compass etc.) is beeps all the time and says "turn signal on". But when i actually turn on the right turn signal it blinks on and off at the normal brightness. I understand this is most likely a wiring issue but I would like to know if anyone has experienced anything like this before and exactly what it was and perhaps the cost of the repair.

yesterday went to start the jeep with the auto starter.It started up normally. It suddenly made a loud noise that sounded close to a backfire.Then the car stopped and didn't start up.Tried again and it started.Then smelled a burning smell like fire.I left the car and saw a white smoke 10 minutes after at the windsheild. Smelled the burning until we turned the heat off. Then the jeep ran normally until the check engine light came on two hours later with an error code P1294. any idea what's wrong?Their no no high levels on the meters and unless I put the heater on no burning smell.

Accelerating while in gear feels very sticky and uneven.I replaced detent cable and no luck.Vehicle accelerates fine in nuetral and park,but feels like something is dragging or hanging up when in gear?

we recently had new seals installed in the rear axel along with all new rear bushings.Oddly the front end now wobbels loudly.Upon applying the brakes the wobble stops.It seems to be opposite of the normal complaints.We also installed 4 new and balanced tires.Wobble begins as soon as the vehicle moves and progresses in speed with the vehicles speed.

The heater is blowing hot/warm air thru driver-side vents, and blowing cold air thru passenger-side vents. Olease advise me of what the problem is. Thanks

where is the location ofa flasher-hazardwarninglightingcontrolmodule N OTHING COME ON BUT HEADLIGHT

My sons share this jeep in Manhattan where they attend college. It started making a loud thumping noise and we had it towed to the dealership. The diagnostic is:
1) Overhaul rear axle (found metal shavings in rear axle)
2) Replace transfer Case (they found internal damage to the transfer case)
3) Replace the left rear axle seal

Those are the major problems (1 & 2 especially) and we are looking for a way to repair this jeep without spending a small fortune. Thanks for any ideas. Mileage is around 145,000.

Differential Seal Replacement

When I put my Jeep in reverse I hear a huge thump. What is the problem?

where is the oil pump

aThis happened right after my son hit the panic button on the key thinking maybe a fuse? any ideas of which one?tested some but none seem to be for the locks.

oil preasure drops to nothing once engine is warm and there is a tapping coming from the engine's top end

My Jeep shakes when I come to a stop at a stop light or sign. This only happens after the car has warmed up and running for while. The shaking is not major but enough to notice. If I put the car in park, the shaking stops. Can anyone help me please? Thank you. My email address is:

I am having my heater core replaced. One mechanic recommended having evaporator core replaced, too, since he will already be in that part of the engine. He said they often go bad within a few months of the heater core.
