JEEP CHEROKEE Park lock out cablesteering column gizmo

I had to deal with park lock out cable falling out of my ignition switch last night. So now I have a question. The cable that comes from the shift lever has a connection at about the 23rds point just before heading up the steering column housing. The last 13 goes from a junctionconnector of some kind the rest of the way to the ignition switch. That junctionconnector has a plug and connector to it 2

Anyone any ideas

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Changing parking brake cable

My parking brake cable broke over 3 months ago and I finally got around to changing it. One of the reasons it took me so long is Firestone told me its 110 to have them replace it. Plus being in the Army I work a lot and have little time off. I was at Auto Zone getting everything I need to do an oil change and turns out that the cable was only 18.99. I did a lot of searching and Google search and only

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE parking brake cable adjustment

Ok i figured out what your suppose to adjust in the rear tires that little gear thing.. I could only turn the passenger side one tho I turned it like 10 times and now the parking brake works and i dont have to pull it all the way up anymore... However i cant turn the other one.. Its just will not budge... its like rusted or something.. I tried PB blaster and it didnt help either and i put so much force

To adjust the brake With the tires off the ground. Pull the lever up three clicks. Use the adjuster at the wheel to spread the pads out so that you just get drag while turning the wheel. Thanks i figured ito ut and changed my post right as you posted that lol... However one side is completetly rusted.. It will not turn not even a Centimeter. Adjusting the other side tho like 10 turns stops the jeep

Its pulling one shoe into the rotor hat and locking the rotor. Either the shoes are too far out or one is grooved out and grabs. When you go to pulling stuff off take notice of the levers and see if they arent seized up. The backing plates could be crap at the shoe contact points. Just guesses I hope the rotor comes off easily for you.

Under the jeep above your rear driveshaft there is a cable with a Splitter that goes to each parking brake. It has the adjuster nut for the e-brake. Use a ratcheting closed-end wrench to save some elbow grease. Lots of adjustment in mine so I just soaked it with PB Blaster penetrator and turned it until my parking brake was firm and will lock up the rear tires at 10mph with all of my might. I have rear disc so the drum shoes for the parking brake are only used as a parking brake.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Anti-Theft Shift Lockout Removal

I just bought a 2004 Grand cherokee Laredo which will not allow the shift lever to move out of park without the security key in the ignition. I refuse to pay 69.00 for a key as a matter of principle - Im not worried about it being stolen as much as my being screwed by the Chrysler corporation Has anyone here removed the lockout It should not be that hard to do and one way or another I will do it but hope to get some advise from someone who has done it before I start.

reason I dont have a Kroger Card and operate in cash - its none of anyones business who I am or how I travel and conduct my business. My bad if I came across as a bit skeptical of your first post but I tend to have a skeptical view of online forum posts that inquire on ways to disable security features on vehicles. Hell Im even hard pressed to disclose the details of the security features on my jeep.

JEEP CHEROKEE Power locks randomly locking and unlocking

My 98 XJ has a problem that just started. As I drive along (or even after Ive parked) the door locks randomly lock and unlock. Id suspect that theres a cable that frayed and is shorting out somewhere but it seems odd that it both locks and unlocks the doors... that would seem to imply to me that at least two cables would be involved... and I cant imagine that they would both fray at the same time.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE Adjusting gearshift cable

Goodmorning guys My 94 5.2L randomly wont start in park. It always starts in netural so I thought adjusting the gearshift cable would do the trick. I have my service manual but having never performed the task before I am strugging to understand how you release the cable adjuster clamp. I have unclipped the cable from the bracket but that is as far as I have got so far. Any help would be very much appriciated.

the cable stays in the bracket. unclip it from the shift lever at the trans. ensure the lever is fully in park pull the lock clip from the adjustment sleeve screw the adjustment sleeve in or out until you can clip the end of the cable back on the lever without moving the lever to meet it. put the lock clip back into place.

JEEP CHEROKEE Dana 30 Locker

Ive been tossing around the idea of throwing a spartan locker in my D30. I read some good reviews and they arent too expensive.

Ive read many reviews of people running a lockright in their dana 30 and they cant even tell its there when in 2 wheel drive.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE need part name...parking brake related

Hey guys so Im looking to verify the name of the part that is under the center of the jeep. It has the long bolt that goes through the parking brake adjustment bracket with a nut on the other side. The only term I believe it may be called is the parking brake equalizer. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks

the scissors is called a parking brake cam and lever. Two separate parts only found at the dealer and about 20 each. So best to try and break them apart and clean them up unless you want to pay 75-80 for 2 wheels. Forget about the e-brake equalizer and needs no adjustment from the factory setting. Believe it was ratmonkey who mentioned that and he was exactly right. The adjustment is all in your self-adjusters

JEEP CHEROKEE Lock rite locker on road performance

I got an offer to buy a dana 44 rear end from a 89 cherokee w 4.11 gears and a lock rite locker in it for 500. I was wondering what that axle would be like on the road I am driving my jeep daily so its important that it would still be street worthy. Any comments Does 500 sound like a good deal

i have an aussie front and rear and as long as you are aware that it will lock when you give it gas there is no reason not to street it. your tires will wear faster and chirp in parking lots and over paint lines when making right turns in intersections too. if everything is in good condition i would say so. if you will have to re-do brakes find ebrake cables etc. then i would try to talk him down.

JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE New Parking brakes Still slipping

Hey hows everyone doing today So I took my jeep to the mechanic the other day to change out the front rotors and get some new pads on her. I mentioned to him that the parking brake does not seem to grab anymore. When parking on a hill the car would sink into the incline. So turns out my cable was loose and the original shoes from 98 we worn down to nothing with all 4 cracked to hell Here is my issuequestion.

Not sure if a 98 is the same as a 96 but if it is (pads for the brakes and shoes for the e-brake) most likely the cam and lever which pushes the shoes out at the top are rustedfroze together. Did your mechanic happen to check this If locked together only 1 shoe will make contact with the inside drum part of the rotor which is not enough to hold back a ZJ.
