    dose not have a regular flasher but has a combination flasher relay (looks to be the center big relay looking thing in your junction box )
  • Hey,
    First, I know everyone says this but I really mean this. I have had Jeeps for 10 years now, three diff ones and I hvae this true everytime. All Jeeps have the same problems eventually. Never take your Jeep to the shop or dealership until you have tried to fix the problem yourself and have exhausted all options. It will eat a hole out of your wallet. It is neither of those items they told you. If you look right below the dash on the driver side near where your left foot sits, there is a cover below the dash. Pull it off. There are multiple wires and connections there. Your dash lights are being caused by a bad connection or short. In those wires it should be close to the second bundles of wires from the left. Notice if you touch them or kick them your dash lights will reset. If this happens it means you need new wires, and or a new connection (hopefully only the connection). You can fashion a new connection yourself, its mostly plastic. Ask a auto parts shop for ideas and help if needed. There is your problem. No 2,000 dollar parts.

    As a side note, anytime a dealership every says you need a 2,000 dollar part replaced, especially on a Jeep as new as yours, its not true. Those parts are that expensive for a reason, they are the parts that the most precision go into, they do not go out until about 200,000 miles of wear.

    I hope this helped!

    Did you ever get a reply to this message? I am having the exact same issue. Was told it required replacing the sender unit in the gas tank for $700, but, I just want to disable the alarm

    I don't know a whole lot about vehicles BUT my husband is having all sorts of problems with his 2000 Grand Cherokee. We actually purchased a computer from a junk yard and took the Jeep to Chrysler so they could set up the new computer to our Jeep. They actually told us that the old computer was fine. The computer from the junk yard was like 20 bucks and taking it to Chrysler to have them tell us it didn't even need a computer was 40 bucks (half hour of labor). They were able to tell us more of what needed to be fixed than Auto Zone could though. Their diagnostics are a little better I believe! Wish you luck!!
  • Dear All:

    I had a 2007 Automatic GCh Laredo with 50.000 km, on sunday when drove back to Caracas the Instruments Panel blinks four or five times, then engine turn-off shortly, but continues to be on and performing as well as the beginning of the trip. I was really worried about this situation because we was so far from any city or town to got helped. After this I drove a little bit slowly thinking this problem would came from the gas pump.
    Two days later the GCh is still performing fine, but I'm hesitated with no notice about the problem's cause.
    Have anyone any idea about this problem? And how to have it fixed?

    Regards,
    pabloU

    ps: Excuse my poor english sirs.
  • Mr Scott

    I'd read about your problem with the JGC two years ago and was wondering if you could help me solving the following case:

    I had a 2007 Automatic GC Laredo with 50.000 km, on sunday when drove back to Caracas (Venezuela) the Instruments Panel blinks four or five times, then the engine turn-off shortly, but continues to be on and performing as well as the beginning of the trip. I was really worried about this situation because we was so far from any city or town to got helped (over 100 miles). After this I drove a little bit slowly thinking this problem would came from the gas pump.
    Two days later the GC is still performing fine, but I'm hesitated with no notice about the problem's cause. On january 30, 2009 I have changed the battery, and almost one month ago I un-posted the negative wire for 15days (was travelling away).
    Have any idea about this problem? And how to have it fixed?

    Regards,
    pabloU

    What does the light that has a circle with a key in it mean on a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Grand Laredo
  • tidestertidester Posts: 10,109
    Do you have a security system in your Laredo? That may be a sentry key icon you're seeing.

  • i have the same problem with the air bag dinging tooo my key light comes on to if i use my electric start and if i shut it off and pull out the key and restart it with the key it goes away :confuse:
  • tuggajbtuggajb Posts: 646
    that tells you if it reads the security chip in the key if you try ro start with it on will not start should go ot when turn key to on
  • 2000 jgc limited. 81,000 miles. starts good runs good while driving. suddenly, odometer will flash, check guages light comes on, sometimes the brake and abs light come on too. voltage guage will drop, gas guage rises. the car doesn't shut off, but idles low, around 5-600 rpm. smell sulfur when it happens. problem happens for about 30 secs to maybe a minute, then everything goes back to fine. New battery and alternator (both have been checked, no corrosion or problems). we think it may be ignition switch or even computer but have no idea. please help
  • It means your trying to start the car with the wrong key. The code in the computer chip that is in the key does not match the code that is in the car computer. My wife had a copy of a key made at a hardware store that did not have a chip in it. Then she called me and said the car won't start. It would unlock the doors and start the engine but it would only run for a second or two then die with that light on onthe dash. Hope that helps
  • the combination flasher/relay works when it wants to. there is nothing wrong with the lights they all work. thanks for the help.
  • Hi there, I need help, my mechanic said he replaced the valve cover gasket on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The thing is I can't see any signs of the replacement. Still dirty around the area. Any tips on how can I be certain that the service was performed? I don't want to complain and look like a fool. Please help. Thanx :) :confuse:

    Perhaps Jeep Grand Cherokee A/C Heating Ventilation would be helpful.

    Where are the flasher and turn signals located. Both are out on my 95 and can't seem to find. Have looked under the driver's side dash..if they are there, where are they hiding?!
  • tuggajbtuggajb Posts: 646
    jeep uses a multi type flasher unit ti is square like a relay i think it is on drivers side at the top of the fuse holder on the left of the relays unpluges just like a regular flasher
  • I have a 2005 jeep grand cherokee and the lights on the control knobs and the temperature settings is not working. I am wondering if anyone knows if this is a bulb or a fuse problem. If it's a fuse which one is it?
  • oil pressure guage problems..replaced the sending unit, checked oil pressure manually at 90psi...gauge goes up to hal way when vehicle starts and then goes to low (check guage lihgts) and when I stop or go around a corner the guage goes up to half way...like its floating...is this a guage problem? if so, where and how much $$ should I be looking at...Many thanks
  • donr4donr4 Posts: 1
    it is the heat ac control board...you have to buy the whole board , it has l.e.d lights embedded in the board. i think it cost around $120

    I've owned a 2006 grand cherokee for 3 months. On my way home tonight the dashlights and headlights flashed several times then went off. (maybe the tail lights, too?) A few seconds later they came back on. Another minute or two and it all happened again. Where should I start looking for the cause of this? I've owned F150's for over 10 years and no nothing about Jeep. :(
  • dee4464dee4464 Posts: 2
    Is it possible to adjust the ABS system? My 2006 grand cherokee seems to have issues with that. Or rather, I do! None of my F150's did this. When there is even a little ice and I try to brake all it does is the shutter thing. I can't even pump the brakes. This is very dangerous on ice when there seems to be no possible way of stopping and you are approaching another vehicle or busy intersection.

    I had the same problem with my Dodge Dakota lights flushing sometimes plus gong ring (same like you open doors ) It was Body module . !5 minutes to replace but cost more then $ to buy module for Dodge. It my help you because it all Chrysler anyway.

    I'm new here, first post. I have a 2004 JGC. The driver's side brake light is out, but the bulb lights up with headlights, just doesn't get brighter when I hit the brakes. I tried changing the bulb, but that didn't help, since the bulb obviously is not burnt out. I'm not very car savvy, so I don't know what else to try. Please help! Thank you.
  • alexis11alexis11 Posts: 1
    hey mine does the same thing. I took it to advance and the employee actually had the same problem. what it is is the stick that controls the lights is broken or loose. its like 150 to replace it or you can just shake it until the lights come back on. It is kind of a pain to deal with when other people drive the Jeep but its not that big of a deal to me. If you can push it back into place correctly it will stay on for a while.
  • tuggajbtuggajb Posts: 646
