problem #2

Jun 142002

Grand Cherokee 4WD

  • miles
The vehicle exhibits a sag/hesitation following a partial cool down restart, possibly an oxygen sensor problem. While making hard left turns at slow speeds (such as a U-turn), the airbag warning light illuminates and a audible chime is activated. The right side brake light assembly is burnt (internally) due to some kind of electrical overheating. The vehicle shifts hard, misses shifts, shifts repeatedly at constant speed and on a level grade. The rear differantial "bumps" very hard within 3-20 seconds of coming to a complete stop. An immovable "fog" has developed on the lenses of the composite headlight assemblies.
