MMTR XJ Wonder
« on: April 22, 2023, 05:24:20 PM »
I don't know what Wonder this would even be throughout the group. 6th?

Has bogged down shortly after startup for 3 of 5 New York starts - was fine for 2 last night, but all three times I ran it today, it fell on its face for a moment after driving away. Like an injector is stuck open maybe? or fuel pressure drop? Would track with some of the other weird start issues.

I don't know if I have any injectors laying around, but that's a big enough thing that I'm going to look at it before listing it.


Ignoring trim pieces and door guts and windsheild, major/ inspection items:
horn
reverse lights
MIL bulb, other cluster bulbs, cluster oil pressure gauge
post-startup bog
rare-if-ever overdrive engagement
speed sensor (and now-fucked speed sensor and reverse switch wiring)

More response from parked on the street corner than FB ad. Two calls and a text in 2 days.

I don’t have a price or specs on it, just name and number

I bought cheap new rubber for this this week. Should be mounted tomorrow, I hope. Cooper 35x12.5-15s

I don’t think i can stomach Patagonia muds. Sorry, instagram.

Would like to get a locker in the rear instead of spool and drive it a bit, I think. I’m itchy to make it nicer and enjoy it since it’s not selling. Figure as soon as I like it, it’ll go.

cant believe this hasent sold

i would say your pictures in your add are shit.  you might think about washing it, getting clear non dark pictures, and more pictures of the under side/lift kit / bolt on parts, instead of the beat interior pictures. 

2min with some black rattel can bed liner to fix alot of the bottom side scratches

people dont read adds, they want shinny things.  or push it on the rock crawler groups or XJ forums

Passenger door now has handles and a working window, though there’s a voltage drop somewhere on both passenger windows.

Front track bar drop bracket welded on. It was very loose again. Third time tightening should be permanent.

Speed sensor fixed. Reads about 10% high.
Marker light fixed.
Still needs horn, backup lights, and lic plate light to inspect.

Speedometer didn’t fix lack of going into overdrive. Unsurprising since I don’t think aw4 sees speedometer signal. Trans output speed sensor is a thing I think? Could be. Low range sensor is not present. Idk if that matters.

Trans cooler lines are wet at crimps up front.

Cluster keepalive isn’t. Tech doesn’t park and trip meter resets at key off

Headlights like to stay on. Wonder if someone put in a relay and it’s sticking? Wiggling and tapping the switch isn’t immediately effective.

I like this jeep :-x
Good time yesterday.

reset TV cable. didn't test drive to see if that makes a difference.
Apparently the brake switch can cause issues like this. it has 3 sets of contacts and if trans controller sees brakes, no OD. If ECU sees brakes, cruise cuts.
NSS a debatable possibility.

TV cable adjust didn’t fix it.
Still drives like a dream.

Need to check brake and NSS switches next.
