1999 Other Jeep Models 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 157000 miles
Our jeep was just returned from repair last week for a busted piston. When driving it down the highway last night coming from church, the ABS and BRAKE light suddenly came on and the SPEEDOMETER began fluctuating radically from between 20 - 80 MPH. The jeep did not accelerate and when I applied the brakes the lights went off. Drove the remaining short drive home and parked it. My husband went out an hour later to check the jeep and as he opened the door he heard a rapid clicking (almost like an electric fuel pump). He put the key in the ignition and whenever he flipped it over to start it the battery was dead and the sound stopped. He turned the key to the OFF posiition and the sound started again. He checked the battery and the positive cable was VERY hot so he disconnected the cable and the sound stopped. My husband is a disabled vet and it's cost all our savings to have the piston fixed. Our donation isn't much but PLEASE HELP.
have the same problem?
