Ain't getting fire won't start

I replaced the starter, solenoid and the relay. I turn the key and nothing. The battery is good but it acts as if it's a dead battery. Everything works and has plenty of power. It just won't start

scanned and codes P0676 and P1270. Vehicle needs #6 glow plug and intake manifold swirl runner and possibly a pcm.

sometimes at takeoff, other times while driving down road, loss power on incline, when u let off gas pedal , then slowly reapply gently bout a minute later it takes gas & goes on.replaced tps, cleaned throttle body, cleaned fuel rail, air filter, crank shaft sensor, seemed better , now 2 mths later starting again.

The hissing stops when I press the brakes and resumes once I let off the brakes. Why is that?

from a cold start car will run fine.After it gets to 210 degrees and I shut it off, go into store for about 20 minutes, I start it up and within 5 min it starts loosing power under load. Put it in neutral and she revs up with no miss. Put back in gear and she sputters unless I floor it and power will be normal for a little bit. no codes come up

Just wanting to know what the code 12 and 15 mean and what they pertain too on my Jeep... and how they can be reset. and how to reset them.......Thank You

I have a problem, about 4 lights keep coming on (engine, tire tract, espBAS, alarm) along with a warning on the information center reading Transmission Over Temperature. My mechanic has ordered some module to correct the problem with the lights, but told me it will not correct the warning of Trans Over Temp. Can someone give a couple of possible things to check, for a possible solution ? Thank You.

The lever moves, but will not release the steering wheel to lower down. Its aiming right at my face!!

Is this a common problem for people? What recourse do we have? My Jeep started every single time before this...

The hood is locked.

A few lights are on. I have had it to the mechanic about 5 times with no answers and money wasted.

The ABS stands out to me. This light is currently on, as well as the oil light.

While driving, and only after pressing breaks will the car literally stop moving in the middle of the road. I can hear the car accelerating when I press the gas pedal, but stalls. I have to restart vehicle and it works fine for another half of a mile.

What could possibly be the issue.

-Frustrated female.

Had some white smoke or steam coming from the front right side grill. Area all fluid levels are good. At the time radiator. Temp was between. 160 and. 200 degrees. Didn't smell anything out of the .normal. and don't see any sign off leaks. Just wondering is their some kind of relief valve on the radiator

Transmission changes good no noise fluid level is good

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

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

Shut off 4 times on 16mi trip. Was at 1/4 tank of gas.

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

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?

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!!!!

Drivers door wont shut or passengers door

The car takes three times to start it then it start then stunble

runs fine on fresh battery and full tank of gas.gas gets low,wont idle and runs rough for a min or two.sometimes if I shut it off and restart it runs better

Saw a video on you tube of blend doors behind glove box, do those same doors direct heat to floor?

Back door lock was replaced. Spare key was sent. Garage said bad fob. They had to insert fob. When I got it back I used my usual fob but now that doesn't work correctly. Keyless entry does not work and push button start does not work. I have to insert fob and use remote to unlock.

I turn the heat on and it don't get warm

my car start but it looks not working perfect i check the code it was P1391

I checked fuses grounds and circuit board on cluster everything looked fine
