Its a fluid system sentinel, and I'll buy it from you. They were on upper model XJ's namely, Wagoneers. They are pretty rare, and I have never known anyone who has wired one up to work. You would have to grab every sensor, wire, and make your own loom to get it to work in an XJ/MJ that didn't come with one. That would mean drilling, tapping, cutting, welding bungs onto every part it gets a fluid reading from. :ack:

 

I bought one off of eBay 5 or so years ago for about $20. When I sold everything off, I gave it to the new owner of my MJ, along with a pile of rare parts. Come to find out, that this was one of the items he left in a basement when they moved out of their old house because it had gotten wet. :fs1:

 

Hornbrod and myself were just talking about this via PM recently, and making one work. While I couldn't get it done right away, I would like to make it work sometime, but that thing is a key item. I would gladly buy it from you, if you decide to sell it. :yes:

i figured it would need all the sensors, this is only the 2nd one ive seen and had to get it lol ill keep you in mind if i go to sell it. do you already have all the sensors and connectors?

 

I don't have anything unfortunately. I gave everything away the last time I tried to cut ties with my Jeep habit. Never again, I can't cut this addiction. I would like to rig it up to work, even with just a few sensors. I was majorly looking for the part you have, and the box it attaches to. From there, I could look up the sensor part numbers, get them aftermarket, and make my own harness.

How does it check brake pads?
there will be special sensors that go on each axle for pad wear theye are a pain to keep working, i have them on my BMW and they always go pad, the sensors that is

That they do. When the pad gets worn enough they make contact with the rotor is turns on an indicator light. That's how they are supposed to work. Trouble is that when you use metallic pads the generated dust/crud turns the indicator on prematurely. They're useless.

The cracked box is called the interface module; the System Sentry module is called the display module. You need both to have any shot to make the system work.

Got it today! AWESOME!!! Even a registration paper with the VIN, and the owners manual! Awesome! You cut off all the connectors attached, got as many sensors as you could, and they all look great! You gave me one hell of a run at getting this thing to work, much appreciated.
