If the clutch is slipping when the clutch disc is 2/3 worn or if the clutch slave cylinder dust boot is torn, there may be insufficient clearance between the clutch slave cylinder and the clutch housing. A 5mm shim is available from Jeep that is installed between the slave cylinder and the clutch housing.

A no crank or no start condition may develop due to electronic lockup of the wireless control module (WCM), also referred to as the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM). When this module fails the remote keyless entry system will also not operate. The WCM is commonly replaced to correct this concern.

Jeep issued an emissions recall in late 2006 to update the powertrain control module (PCM) software on certain 1997 - 1998 vehicles. As part of the recall, the catalytic converter will also be inspected for damage and replaced as necessary. To see if your vehicle is included in the recall you can visit the Jeep website (owners' section) that allows owners to input their VIN number and check the recalls on their vehicle.

The AC evaporator may freeze after extended use of the air conditioner. The output may feel low due to the restricted evaporator. Once the ice buildup melts, the AC operates normally. A revised low pressure cycling switch is available which may fix this concern.

"False" trouble codes may cause erroneous illumination of the Check Engine Light. Updating the PCM software can often correct this concern.

A Check Engine Light may illuminate indicating a "Cylinder #3 Misfire." This normally occurs in hot weather after the vehicle has been driven, parked for ten to twenty minutes, and then restarted. Heat from the exhaust vaporizes fuel inside the #3 fuel injector and causes the misfire. Installing an insulator sleeve normally lowers the temperature enough so the fuel will not vaporize.

Side bars located near the door opening (on the sunrider soft top) may break or a pivot link may break. There are pivot links and side bars available so a complete soft top assembly may not be needed for the repair.

Internal leaks in the speed sensor or speed sensor gear adapter (speedometer adapter) are common. A revised speed sensor (white in color, old versions are black), used in production since November of 1993, solves the problem. If leaks develop between the sensor and the adapter or between the adapter and the transmission housing (transfer case if 4WD), a revised speedometer adapter is available.
