Download Sample Vehicles 1996 Grand Cherokee Three 4-wheel drive Jeep models (Wrangler, Cherokee, Grand Cherokee) were produced with mercury acceleration sensors from 1990 to 2001 model years. The sensor contains two – 1 gram mercury switch capsules embedded in a solid plastic component. The entire component weighs 3 ounces (85 grams). Removal Procedure 1. Remove rear seat. 2. Locate sensor on center drive tunnel. Cut carpet and roll back to access sensor. 3. Release clips to disconnect wiring harness. Remove two bolts to release the sensor. Estimated Average Removal Time: 30 Minutes (assuming need to remove rear seat); 7 minutes (rear seat already removed) Note: A variety of factors could complicate the removal process. Vehicles which have been involved in accidents which prevent easy access to interiors would require additional time. However, for vehicles with rear seats already removed removal times would be similar to those for Ford products.
