Post Hello

I love my Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo! I spent yesterday having it serviced and discovered I have several lights out at the same time. I knew the left brake light was out due to a helpful commuter. Now I found out the 3rd brake light, both reverse lights and the right front sidemarker light are out as well. I have recently replaced the headlights and taillights, and I am surprised that the brake light is out at all. I am now wondering if it is an electrical problem. Anyway, I am trying to register my vehicle after moving back to California from another State and it looks like it is going to be quite costly. I have an older model (2000), and I refuse to give it up as I will drive it until it falls apart underneath me, from old age rather than neglect. I was told that it will not pass a smog check with the check engine light on. The charge to run a diagnostic is costly; and does not include any necessary repairs. Will the check engine light automatically go off if I happen to fix the problem through guesswork? Or am I at the mercy of the mechanics who can do this for a fee? These are the pressing questions that have given me a night of insomnia; which brought me to this forum. I have already replaced several internal motors for the automatic locking system (such as the rear hatch) and windows which would no longer function properly. I realize with an older model these things do need replacing. I just wish it was not all at the same time. I need to find a good mechanic. I look forward to reading some of the problem-solving posts. Perhaps I will find answers there. In the meantime, this Laredo lover is in desperate need of sleep! Ciao
