Thanks for all of the good advise re vacuum lines that control the AC vents and the cruise control on a 2002 Cherokee. I fixed both problems for less than $3 instead of the $250 - $500 the dealership would have charged. I only have a couple of things to add: before you work your cachoobies off dismantling the battery box, check the intake manifold lines. That battery route is a real pain so save it for last. Also, when replacing the hoses connected to the manifold, either get a slightly larger size and use a hose clamp or be sure to try to stretch the hose and add some WD-40 in each end.
