Question about 1997 Jeep Cherokee Country

1 Answer

Headlights I just switched out the light switch components for my jeep and for some reason the headlights won't come on. I have checked every fuse and they are all good and I can't find any problem in the wiring. Is there any other possible problems besides the lights being burnt out and is it likely that both lights would blow or burn out at the same time?

Where do I locate the fuse of the headlights in a 1984 jeep


Don't believe there is one for headlights. Your jeep is too darn old: I can see wiring diagrams going back to 1986 at a site, so I looked at one for an '86 CJ7. Unfortunately not a complete headlight wiring diagram, however, so you're getting a two bit answer, with inflation worth about 10 cents. lol.

The headlight switch gets power from a fusible link (Fuse link A) that looks like it may be located on the starter solenoid terminal- two fuse links- A & B, there somewhere. But this same fusible link A also supplies power to the fuse block with the park/tail lamps, hazards, brake lights, and a couple others. So if you have stop lights and park lights, then the fusible link is good, so you should have power to the headlight switch. Neither the fuse block, nor the instrumentation diagram, shows any fuses for the headlights. A lot of older vehicles did not have headlamp fuses, because the light switch had a built-in circuit breaker.

My guess is you have a bad dimmer switch, or the connection there may be bad. Or check if you have power to the headlight socket with the light switch on, and if you do, there may be a headlight ground problem.

Headlights not working


check drl unit if not found integrated in fusebox check connections at battery and all fuses if ok if no test light is available take each fuse out 1 at a time and check if not burnt then you have relays for headlights and parking try the 4 way hazards to see if the parking lights function then if all is good play with the multifunction switch to see if not burnt

2001 jeep wrangler. Brake lights won't work but


Check the brake control switch situated just above the break pedal arm under the dashboard. Could be a wire loose or unplugged or the switch itself could be faulty

04 jeep grand cherokee limited, my four windows dont work but my moon roof window works, rear windshield wiper doesnt work, interior lights go on and dont turn off, any reason why or any solutions?


with the windows it obviously is something common to all four and the first item I would check is the fuse. Interior lights are controlled by the headlight switch and a worn switch can be the problem. If these are not the problem than I would want to check the wiring, specifically the ground. Ditto for the rear wiper. Fuse first. Switch second. Wiring third.

My headlights won't work on my 1997 Jeep Cherokee Sport. I replaced the switch under the dash, checked the lamps and fuses and they appear to be OK... what am I missing?


with a test light or voltage meter you would check fuses - if good check power at switch and thru switch when turned on - then relay for headlights - then power at lights - you can use battery post as ground first - then use body metal as ground - this will tell you if the problem is on the positive side or negative/ground side
