In most cases this would indicate a defective brake light switch.
My experience with this come from a 2001 ford windstar which would work well most times but every now and then would run the battery dead. Due to the higher cost of replacement switch I discovered function / actuation mode of the same switch did some adjustments and fixed it. Same switch now working perfectly with no relapse for over one year.
If you are sure the brake pedal is returning all the way up then it is more than likely the switch. Do not be afraid to give it a look to see if you can correct the problem with some minor adjustments.
If i remember correctly a good strong sharp utility knife was used when I fixed mine, be careful not to cut yourself!!

wobble of the steering is a wheel alignment problem regardless of having an alignment done
if your vehicle has a "live"front axle ( not independent suspension) the alignment is fixed to toe in toe out settings by the manufacturer
however spring sag and pivot pin(king pin bearings)wear alters that setting
There are devices available on the market that can be fitted by accredited suspension service shops that allow the alteration of the castor and camber settings ( you have a castor wobble) so talk with these shops and get ideas of what you can do
if it has independent suspension these settings can be easily set and should be set to around 1 to 1 1/2 degrees positive with toe in set to around 1/8 ti 1/4 "
a point that most alignment shops don't mention is that the rear end has to be aligned first so that the steering wheels are in the same "track" otherwise the front alignment is a waste if time as the vehicle will tend to run sideways down the road
it is an extra cost but well wort the expense when chasing a problem
next point --if the cv or "U" joints are failing then they will tend to have hard stops when steering and this will set of steering problems
lastly , big wide tyres are hard to align because of the amount of rubber on the road and to get the comprise between correct alignment and reduced tyre wear is hard to achieve

Either your heater core is plugged up or your line to the core is restricted. Do a complete reverse rad flush with a radiator cleaning solution and try it. If that doesn't work you'll need a new heater core.

If you tighten one side down before the other this could be an air leak. Loosen it, snug up one corner, then the opposite corner. Then the rest. The do the same when tightening it done. it only takes about 7 foot pounds to seal these. 7 pounds is done with one hand on a short ratchet.

I doubt its a fuel pressure issue being at idle or at a stop sign is the lowest required fuel pressure during operation other than coasting. Sounds more like an an idle control problem What motor do you have? Auto or manual trans? Need more info about rhe vehicle to point you in the right direction.

If the timing belt were broken, the car would not be driving at all. If those codes weren't confused with another symptom it could be the car needs a tune up. You should think of when the last time plugs, wires, air filter were replaced. If they're pretty new, it could mean a cracked cam shaft sprocket has the engine out of time. Honestly, a full tune up would be cheaper than paying a mechanic to tear down and close up the engine. Good luck!

It would help to know if fuel pressure drops when it fails, or if spark drops out. You could hook up a fuel pressure gauge that you can see from the driver's seat, and use a real time scan tool to see what is happening when it fails.

Sounds like a fuel pump. Some times when the pump is getting ready to quit it will work intermittently and then quit entirely.

what country?, UK jeeps use diffr rad's and diff, methods......
there are more than one radio (orig) sold with car.
we cant guess the model !@
if you look and read the model there and google you WILL find
out how to set it.
FSM for 2000 USA shows no mention of codes.

do you have the wrong radio in the car off a newer Jeep?
the radio sticker on top tells you year, and model and serial.
all key to finding this method.
but just the front dial has the 3 letter model code.... what is yours.

models RBN, RAZ, RAS? on the face plate it is.... look see it?


ask here.?

the operators guide may have this answer. lost yours?
button presses.... are there, if needed..

also never pull. the OID fuse with key on, or the radio scrambles.
to fix that error, key off pull that fuse, count to 50 put back.

if you guess 5 times the radio locks for 2hours
some newer RADS have a rule that if you guess too many times'
it bricks forever. (needs service center fix $$$$)

some codes do not exceed 5. 0 to 5,
in this case 8898 is not a code..... so whats with that number?

and last this great site on head ends


see what radio you have, then ask.

and post the error codes on the display ("wait") or what?
