How to Troubleshoot a 2001 Jeep Cherokee


The Cherokee is a unibody, compact SUV first sold in 1984 as an alternative to conventional cars and trucks in the automotive marketplace. It is said that with the Cherokee, Jeep set the standard for future SUV designs. In 1997, the Cherokee received an update to the exterior and interior design. However, the Cherokee was not without its problems. Most of the problems common to the 2001 Jeep Cherokee included electrical and brake-related issues. Thankfully, these items are covered by a factory recall.

  • Check your Jeep Cherokee for Airtex replacement fuel pump installation. Airtex fuel pumps were installed on some Jeep Cherokees as a replacement fuel pump once the factory original had failed. These fuel pumps were manufactured with plastic electrical grommets that will fail in the presence of fuel. Over time a leak will develop and could cause a fire if exposed to an ignition source. This item can be serviced by calling (800) 880-3056.

  • Check your Jeep Cherokee for Pro-A Motors brand headlamps. Some Jeep Cherokees were fitted with these headlamps. The headlights may suddenly fail as a result of faulty design causing a nighttime vehicle crash without warning. Replacements can be obtained from Pro-A Motors free of charge by calling (323) 838-2988.

  • Check your Jeep for a replacement brake master cylinder. Some brake master cylinders from various aftermarket manufacturers including Napa, AC Delco, and CarQuest had a faulty design causing the internal seal to fail which in turn caused brake fluid to leak from the system. This component can be replaced at no charge by calling the Affina Group at (800) 323-0354
