well ****! Why didn't I see this a few days ago? Got a few 80767 still in the box for the 06 and ordered a pair of 3199 for the 04.
I'd be done by now except I chewed up the axle spindle nut whilst driving out the left half shaft.
Dealer only here - monday afternoon !
starter not engaging the flywheel.
Take it off (starter) and look at the teeth.
Either they are torn up ( not likely ) or the Bendix (gizmo that throws the starter gear into the flywheel ) is shot.
Bad bendix = new starter.
Teeth torn up = new starter and better look at the flywheel too.
search up a heater core / evap core r&r thread on here.
It is not hard - but it is time consuming.
before tearing into it, why not check both systems.
i know this sounds childish but - is the heater core even connected? If this is a new to you jeep, many temporarily shunted the coolant path...
Sounds a bit like my -4 kj.
son has her away from home at school.
cruises into Rodanthe on vacation with the rear brakes shot.
rear brakes on the beach complete with rotors and caliper should be gtg.

Son took her to the beach and I ended up doing rear brake rotor, pads and caliper at the rental house with very few tools.
He lives away now and told him she needs to be in my garage this weekend -...
I’d suggest it is likely some capacitors that have gone bad.
you’d need what we used to have all around. Techs who can work to component level.
do you know anyone around your area who does electronic repair? Guitar amps? Electronic organ tech? Ham radio club?
someone of that calibre...
Brakes at the beach!
my son brings his/my 04 kj along on vacation. He lives away in metro baltimore.
dad - this jeep makes a noise when i put on the brakes.
check it out, yeah it does!
rr rotor scored up.
we are staying 20 miles from everywhere in the outer banks.
1 hr rt for pads and...
Watch that video some more. The first 2 bolts you take off are the caliper mounting bolts. They secure caliper to the bracket.
a sticking caliper is usually crusty caliper slide pins - where you took off the bolts. Those flat metal pins should slide and rotate freely with little tension. If...
Unfortunately, no one I know has found an affordable replacement for that tubing. I suspect it is just like polyethylene flexible water line.
I did not have any luck finding an exact fit.
On any parts yard run , i take a booster pack and search the available kj donors for good regulators. I...
