perhaps the transmission or motor mounts are defective and separating now~ jack the motor and transmission with a floorjack...a defective mount will show the separation~

I have a 97-cherokee, the flasher s/hazard light went out, won't flash at all, Any one knows where the flasher is located? Can you send some pictures, I have the flasher, can't find where to replace it

exact same thing happened to me, the alternator is going out it cranks right up in neutral without any problems also.

would check the black wire connection to the fender/chassis also the connection to the engine block...so grounding of the dash and also the blower motor and all grounded auxiliary stuff, like flashers, domelight and DRL's ...headlights too, with a NEW battery, you can inspect the connections of your grounding~ batteries will last about 7 years before they will stop accepting a recharge~
