    I have a 2004 Wrangler 4.0 with the 42RLE that is slipping. The trans seems to be slipping into neutral on its own and kicked the p0700 code at me. When I was merging onto the highway, the trans clunked into 1st and 2nd, then slipped into neutral as my foot came off the gas. When I got to...

    So this is a long one so bear with me. I was driving my Jeep and after about two hours of driving, the battery light came on (its never done this). I was heading up snowboarding and after a day on the mountain, I go to start my jeep with no issue, starts right up. All of the sudden when idling...

    Yesterday morning I went to start my jeep (2008 JKU 3.8L) and all that I heard was one click and then the battery completely died - no lights, no power locks, nothing. I took the battery to my local auto parts store and they told me the battery is fine and shows a 90% charge so I took it back...

Hasn’t had any problems starting but today i went out to run an errand and it started just fine, ran into the store and came back 10 minutes later and it wouldn’t crank.

    So the battery died on me. I was able to get it jumped and went to autozone and got a new one. They said it may need a new alternator since the voltage on the battery wasn’t going up. So I order one off rock auto and put it in Wednesday. Drove it around for about 45 minutes with no issues...

    I have an 89 Jeep Wrangler 2.5L 5-sp manual. Replaced the alternator with a 78 amp and now I don't get proper volts as measured at the dash gauge. It went from steady at 14 with the old one to more like 8-9 with the new. Things like wipers and blinkers are now slooooow. The old Delco-Remy alt...

    After a regear to 4.88 I did back in July to my 2012 Jeep JK I have started experiencing an issue when driving at highway speeds for 2+ hours. After a long period of driving I will hear a chime from the instrument cluster and all of the gauges will turn off for a second and all of the warning...

    I've recently been having an issue with the battery voltage on my Jeep Wrangler 2004 TJ Unlimited. The car would start with 12v visible on the dash gauge, and the "check gauges" light would come on. After replacing the alternator, testing it, testing the battery, and charging the battery back...

    Hey Guys, Over the past month, have had an issue with my TJ not going over 12v and the check gauges light coming on. Jeep almost died on the way home one night, going all the way down to 9v. I got it tested at the store on that drive back, and they said the alternator was bad. I installed a...

    I just bought a 1998 Jeep Wrangler 4cly. I'm somewhat new to Jeeps other than owning a 2006 back in 2006. When the jeep is running the lights flicker and the battery reads 19volts. It appears to have a new alternator with some strange wiring and electrical pieces connected to it. I was...

    Symptom: Jeep (97 TJ 2.5l) kicks and misses while driving. Alternator/Battery light normal for a few minutes. Then shows failure to charge. First by showing 12V instead of 14V. And then showing no charge at all. With red “check engine” light coming on. But engine stops missing and runs smoothly...

    Hey all. I drive a 2012 Jk with ~75k miles on it. 18 months ago, I drove through a mud pit/puddle and my alternator started a scratchy whine which ended up being the bearing. Had to replace it, luckily did so under warranty at the dealership. Last week, had to drive through mud at work (I...

    I have a 99 Wrangler with the 2.5L and a manual transmission, I also live in the North Houston area where there has been all the flooding. On the days that I had off due to the flooding I rode around and pulled [email protected]$$ drivers that decided to ford the Mississippi River type flooded streets back...

    In the process of removing the alternator on my 98 TJ the little electrical tabs broke off. These are the tabs that come out of the little black plastic box thing that connects to the field terminals on the back of the alternator. I've read on-line that the little black plastic box the...

    My alternator isn't charging the battery from time to time. I start my Jeep, the battery dial only shows 12, then will fall flat after 2-3 minutes of driving and the "Check Gauges" light shows up. After wiggling the alternator pigtail connection/pressing it firmly into place it will start...

    My '91 has been squealing lately (mostly when I first start it) and when it does, the power decreases and the battery indicator shows it falling down to the red. All practical advice says I need a new alternator, but I can't afford one at the moment. Any quick fixes to extend the life of this...

    I was putting in a new alternator for my wife's 1997 tj and I got to the part where you secure the black box with the 4 hook ups. I got to the 2 little field terminals that you nut down, I think they are 7mm, and one of the threads broke on the alternator as I was tightening the terminal with...

    I have an '02 TJ that wouldn't start this morning. When I put the key in the ignition there was a strange double beep and the I tried to turn it over nothing happened. Dash wouldn't light up, but the gauges (speedometer and tachometer) were moving back and forth. I disconnected the battery...
