my first jeep was a 95 4.0 with same 42RE trans.

the TCM failed and it stuck in 3rd all the time.

sounds like a different issue, but just FYI.

The 95 have a separated module for the trans? I thought they're controlled by the PCM.

I had to manually shift my 47re from Denver>Las Vegas>Phoenix when the governor transducer broke on it. At least it was mostly on highway haha. Bah.

OBD I were weird, separate TCM on all the electronic transmissions 95 and down as I recall. I think that may be just 94-95 or maybe back to 93? hazy on that.

guess this thing has a factory alarm.

i locked doors with door button, came back unlocked driver door with key, horn beep and antitheft 2 seconds motor run only. 


key lock and unlock to driver door like my 5.9 98 did not turn it off.  google let me know on 97 limited you have to lock and unlock the passenger door WTF 

smooth cruse control at 70 no issues on thruway.  love this thing. 



win.

Yeah. Everyone on I-90 drove like they have a woman in labor on our way back in town. How can it be fun to drive like that?

horns connected back up
head lights adjusted. 


whats left:
no obvious evap issues at canister, lines, or tank

Dome light:
If you press and hold the rear light lens it will toggle between having the dome light come on with the door open and never coming on when the door opens.

no go with dome lights.  may have to do with rear dome never comes on, bulb looks good.
front inner fenders pounded in for 35" turning full lock.
rear brakes disassembled and seized ebrake hardware freed up and lubed. 
ebrake adjustor in seized and ebrakes adjusted and working.
tank dropped all looks good but found pump nut retainer ring pretty loose.  tightened and cleared code.
