Factory door lock remote works on and off. Some times it works and at times it doesn't including alarm system.

Shifted from reverse into drive quickly without pressure on the accelerator. Unfamiliar grinding noise and lurch motion prior to acceleration. First time occurrence.

I had this problem last several times week but I could eventually get it to start. It would run rough for a bit then be okay. Now it will not start.

How hard would it be to do it myself and what tools are needed

We were on 66 doing 70 mph and jeep dropped into 2nd gear. Drove home and parked jeep. Next day took it to auto zone for diagnostic. Jeep drove like normal. Then Check Engine light came on and jeep dropped into 2nd gear again. Autozone said I had a bad transmission solenoid. Which one is it? Step Down or Transmission solenoid. Where is it located.

So first, I had my oil changed at meineke yesterday. I've never been there before but I couldn't get in with my mechanic so I just figured I'd do it quickly. Things were fine after that, I drove to work and when I got off work 7 hours later I started the car and it went into drive; drove maybe 10 feet forward and appeared to stall out. Which I thought was odd since I didn't fill the tank(stalling is occasional due to charcoal cap which was already addressed and a common problem). When car stalled, I let it sit a minute and turned the key; it just made the starting crank sound like it couldn't turn over so I held it past for 15 seconds, did that a few times and nothing happened. A friend came to try to jump me since battery light was on, nothing happened since battery was tested and good. AAA came and towed it, my mechanic looked at the car(very trusted guy we've been using for 6 years). He said fuel pump was bad. He changed the pump and started the car, now all lights on the dash are on. He is keeping the car to look more into after the long weekend to find the problem. Does anyone have any idea what this may be or have any of you with the jeep patriot experienced this exact problem after changing a fuel pump? Thanks in advance for any input and advice- just trying to figure out what I'm getting into cost wise.
My car is a 2007 Jeep Patriot 2.4L automatic. 119,300 miles.
repairs done;
I've had the car two years(my first car, I'm 19). Summer of 2015 I had alternator replaced. December 2016 I needed upper tie rods replaced. Other than that I can't think of any problems fixed, always passed inspections, oil changes always done timely. It's always been a good car, I just can't figure out what it could possibly be.

I'm having the same problem 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport. My ABS and traction lights always come on & off while driving. Replaced the right rear wheel speed sensor (cost WAY too much at the dealership but that's what they recommended). Still have the same problem. Especially if I hit a pothole or speed bump. Ideas? Never trust a dealership :(

My radio doesn't have the Uconnect but I'd like to have it. If I bought one with Uconnect and installed it would it be an easy switch?

my car has been running hot and has been making this rattling noise and have been smoking

Can anyone give me any help I literally just bought this car today and paid all cash out of money my dad left after he passed recently...

It won't start I'm getting a code ASD relay to the PCM power no power how do I reset it

a rebuilt tranny was put in my jeep now it wont move

My 2001 Jeep Cherokee will not start I do not hear the fuel pump coming on I've checked the relay I need to know if there is another fuse for the pump

I am having to run my Jeep morning and night or it will not hold a charge. I am told the battery is good and still under warranty and that it is not the alternator or fuel pump. If I do have to have someone out to jump it they say they won't replace the battery. They don't check connections or grounds or clean terminals or anything, so how do I ask them to do that or is anyone else having this problem and if so do you know the reason for it. Mileage is 80,000.

Is there a recall on this? Dodge states this is a common problem.

I am a new owner of a jeep and I'm courious about the process on converting my jeep to 4wd

My transmission is leaking really bad it just started last night I pulled into Walgreen and it slipped than went back into gear parked 5 min later there was spots under it and the whole under side wan wet with transmission fluid

Sound cuts out and I turn it off and it works for a short time and sound cuts out time after time !

i had an oil change two days ago and the mechanics said everything looked good and sent me out. today my brother started up my car for me and when i came outside there was a loud whiney sound coming from my vehicle. I got in my car turned it off, then on again. there was a weird smell, kinda smokey. just to test it, i pulled out of the driveway and i conclude that my power steering is suffering. when i pulled it back in the driveway i noticed there was brown droplets (maybe dirt from the roads) and a two inch deep, four or five inches in diameter clearing in the snow under the front and center part of my car. power steering fluid isnt brown, and when ive had trouble with it before, there was no weird smokey smell or noise

When the temp drops below 46f the jeep struggles to start, it cranks ok but it takes a few attempts at glowing the plugs. If it gets colder 37f and below it just won't start at all unless I use easy start. Have had all the usual checks done, battery, fuel, plugs, injectors, starter & sensors. Does anyone have any idea?

on my guage display the word "gate" is displayed meaning the rear liftgate is not closed even though it is,now i cant adjust the brightness of the guages because after u turn past the first setting all the interior lights come on as they would if the rear gate was actually open how do i fix this problem?

I bought a used certified 2012 jeep grand cherokee, V6 in Dec 2015. I'm assuming that the transmission fuids were checked prior to sale. It had 75K miles at time of purchase and in the last 13 months I have put on 45K miles (120K)

Although I have had NO issues, and the vehicle is in excellent shape, I haven't done any transmission, differential or transfer case maintenance yet, but I know it's time to address it. The owners manual is vague, and references use under the"normal driving conditions"... I have been using the vehicle everyday for Lyft (150-175 miles daily) so certainly not "normal".

Questions:

1. At this point in the vehicles life, would you recommend a complete transmission system flush or just a transmission fluid exchange and a new filter? (Heard a lot of pros and cons to flushing - loosening debris, creating clogging, the reverse pressure process loosening seals, etc. vs having a complete cleaning for sustaining better transmission life)

2. In terms of order of importance for all the drive train components, can one area be addressed first or should everything be done at the same time?

Thanks!

for some reason my brake lights and tail lights aren't working on my Grand Jeep Cherokee. at first when they wasn't working I tried the foil trick and then they started working. then they went out again so I checked the fuse which was a 15amp and it was blown. so I replaced it and it blew again. so I went up to a 20amp and it blew that one also. so then I went up to a 25 and then it worked for a couple days then they blew out that fuse. now its not holding any fuse. anytime I put any type of fuse in there and press on the brake I can hear the fuse pop. I really do need help if someone out there knows abou these type of problems. I have a daughter and I'm scared to drive my truck because I'm afraid of getting into a car accident. but my daughter has health issues that requires her to be at the doctor frequently. can anyone help me please with my grand jeep Cherokee 2001? me and my family would really appreciate it. thank you!!!!

When driving my 2003 Jeep Liberty Sport the engine started revving, but the car only moved because of momentum. If I pull over and restart it is fine for 50-100' then does the same thing. I had to put it into 2nd gear to limp it in to the dealership. The engine light came on. The dealership claims it has 2 errors, one of which is error after shift, and needs a transmission. The car only has 100,000 miles on it, barely, and is regularly maintained.
