Which engine.?
the XJ has a serp, in the USA LHD. (left hand drive)
most have no auto tensioner (sorry !) its not a GC.
the 4.0L has a screw drive, tensioner, not like on new cars.
the force is below. why not just buy a new one... start fresh.????.
if the screw, below the PS, that huge long screw was never set right then it will slip, most shops are to lazy to do it right
or too cheap to own the simple tool to measure tension.
as you can see its NON TRIVial AT 180 LBS.
FROM THE XJ BOOK, ,valid to 2001. RHD never LHD cars.
and never export cars. 4.0L only., so.....

A sign that your belt tightener may be not working properly . You can spray belt with belt dressing which I find helps a lot.
If your belt has hair line cracks in it where it comes over the pulley on the drive side.it needs replacing. Quite often replacing the belt fixes the problem.

    Belt dressing sucks. This should only be used for an emergency, like on a trip. If you have ever had to clean pulleys from this, you would know why.

SOURCE: 2000 jeep cherokee sport fuse diagram

unfortinately the fuse box is under the hood and there is no panel inside the 2000 cherokee or diagram, i had to buy an online manual to find out what fuse went where for my jeep but its not with me. You can just pull the fuses out one at a time and look at them - I know its a pain. It might be your window controll switch - mine is bad as well. It is a common problem for these cherokees especially over 100k, they wear out - I initally thought it was my fuse as well because the lights in the window switch didn't light up anymore - but it is my switch.

Likely you are looking for a 30 amp circuit breaker...(Looks like a small rectangular metal fuse) But...if the power door locks work, i don't think that it's bad (serves locks & windows) My diagrams show a bunch of diodes and resistors inside the master (drivers) door switch, but I've had a few apart and never saw any. (embedded?) Personally I don't see anything that shows me reliability built into the switch...It's a really "iffy" design (one in my niece's Jeep only works when the sun shines on the drivers door) There is also a control module associated with the windows but I've never needed to replace one and the manuals never tell you where they are!
Check power at the switch and check harness where it goes through the rubber boot between the door and body. at least 80% of problems I've seen are either the switch or that wiring. Wires can be spliced and you can get a decent used switch at most scrap yards.
Good luck...glad they aren't stuck down!!!

One of my pullys broke last night. Im trying to find a layout of my pullies so i can figure out which pully broke.


Both Gates and Dayton have good diagrams on their websites that show belt routing, but you'll need to know the engine information for your car. www.gates.com, and then use the parts locator. You need to click on the photo icon next to the serpentine belt listing. Best Regards, SJV

Change serpantine belt


The easiest way to change a serpentine belt is to go and buy a serpentine belt tool (Around $15-$20 at the auto parts store.) It's a long, flat wrench with bits that will fit most belt tensioners. The idea is to move the belt tensioner down, to allow the belt to relax so you can pull it off.
Once you have the belt off, follow the serpentine belt installation diagram on a sticker, located under the hood. Then, while pushing down on the belt tensioner, slip the belt on to the last pully and then slowly bring the tensioner back to tension. Double-check your belt routing with the belt diagram before starting your Grand Cherokee.

I hope this helps! :)

The tensioner won't release on my jeep


If your tensioner will not release pressure then you will require a new tensioner. These units do loose the ability to apply proper tension and they fatigue over time. Also, make sure that the belt you have is the proper length.

Serpentine belt wont stop slipping


sounds like your belt tensioner pulley may be defective, also check all the pulleys for excessive play in the pulley bearings, these are the most common causes.
