    CCKen,Thank you so much for all of the content you have posted. I have followed your advice throughout many threads and have learned a ton from you!I purchased a 1998 XJ Sport for my daughter last October for her first vehicle (Gunmetal!) and needless to say it has turned into my project vehicle. It has needed a lot of work and I have done as much as I can on my own. I am a novice in automobile repair but am willing to take the time to research and learn in order to do things myself the right way. You and many others on the forum have definitely helped. Newbies like me are very fortunate to have these types of social media sites available. Not sure what I would do without them.Thanks again for your knowledge sharing!

    Hello CCKen,
    I have a 2000 XJ, fwd, 4.0. A while ago you posted a wiring diagram for a 1999 XJ HVAC system. My problem is the blower is running constantly when the ignition is on, even when the HVAC switch is in the off position. I removed the blower relay and found I have voltage across the DB/VT and BK wires. I also removed the electrical connections from the HVAC switch while testing this. Do you know why I would have constant 12vdc on the DB/VT wire? Thank you for your input.

    Hi CCKen,
    I hope you don't mind me contacting you directly. I was just reading your post about pag Oil and re doing your AC system. I've taken mine apart, cleaned it out and replaced the Compressor, Accumulator and Orifice tube. Im getting ready to start putting it back together and I just want to be sure I'm doing it right. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Im going to empty out the compressor and add approx 4 oz of PAG oil to it, and then also add approx 4 Oz to the accumulator. Then I am going to attached the whole system and vacuum it out for 30 mins and then add my refidgerant. Does it sound like Im doing the right things in order? Thank you again......this is a big job for me.

    Thanks Ken I'll consider another TCM but first if the shifting is great will I need another TCM? Looking at the schematic from your other posts can you help me with the SCI circuits not communicating with the scanner/reader? The CCD Bus Voltage? Disconnecting the neg cable and checking the DLC pins 4&5 are getting a good ground reading, but pins 3&11 getting a ground also, should they not be grounded? When batt is connected pin 6 gets 4.73 volts. There are after market things done before I bought the vehicle like: Avitol auto start, sound system. Your schematic from other posts has been helpful but I need direction.

    CCKen my 96 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0l will not hook up to OBD 2. I have followed all or many of the posts that you have helped others with this same problem. I can get the OBD2 to communicate when I disconnect the TCM, but as soon as I hook up the TCM the communication won't hook up. I can clear the codes if they appear by disconnecting the TCM. I need the OBD2 to hook up when I need to get my emission check at the Air Care Colorado. I had a code a few months ago that was asscoiated with the K&N air filter being restricted. I cleaned the filter and replaced the injectors to up grade them to the 4 hole Bosch's, also cleaned the air body at the air cleaner by removing it and cleaning throughly. I have cleaned and checked all of the grounds and get voltage on #16 of over 12 volts, the DLC and ground at 4&5 are good. The voltage check at 3& 11 are at 0.04 volts. This is strange because I've checked the codes previously over the past year or so and all has been good. Advice?

    Sir, I was wondering if you could take a look at my thread.....I've always valued your input and I'm aware that you're the electrical guru on here and was wondering what your thoughts was.....
