If it's a lighted switch, you should have 3 terminal connections on it. One for the "ignition on" wire (from your fuse box). One going to the fog lights to turn them on when you flip the switch and one ground for the switch light to work. If your switch doesn't light, you should only have 2 terminal connections (no ground).

Find an "ignition on" plug on your fuse panel. It is only hot when you turn your ignition to the on position (not crank position). With your keys out, it should not have any power to it. Hook your "hot" wire from fuse panel to switch, take your keys out of the ignition first to be safe. Now hook the other wire from the switch to the "hot" on your fog lights. You will have to find a pass through rubber grommet on your firewall to go through. Use a clothes hanger to help fish it through. Now ground your fog lights to a grounding screw somewhere in the engine bay. There should be a few you can use, possibly one of the bolts that hold the front shroud on. Make sure it's a metal surface and use sandpaper to scrape off paint to get a metal to metal contact. Cover area with petrolium jelly to ward off rust. If your switch is lighted, hook to ground wire on fuse panel. Test with ignition on. If it doesn't come on, check your grounds again.

SOURCE: 1996 jeep cherokee sport where do i add freon

Look for the a/c pipe that has a blue cap on it, that's the low pressure side where the freon goes.
The pipe with the red cap is the high pressure side, you don't put the freon in that one.
I can't tell you exactly where the connection is, different models are in different places.

SOURCE: Where is the location of the fuel pump reset

You don't have one on there. Pump is turned on and off by the automatic shutdown relay and the pump relay. The crank sensor signal keeps it on. If the asd relay does not get a signal from the computer (from the crank sensor), it turns off the pump relay (and spark).
The pump should run when you first turn the key on. When you start the engine, if the computer gets no signal from the crank sensor it will shut the engine off (no fuel, no spark = off)
If when you first turn the key to on, you can't hear the pump, likely either the pump has failed (check power at the pump harness) or the relay is bad.(swap relay for a known good one and try it).

Pennsylvania has no front license plate but new jersey does. purchase a 1996 jeep sport in PA but now i have to purchase and install a front license plate and bracket for NJ. Is there a special brand of...

for a simple item like that, get it from a local scrapyard. Holes are already where they need to be as it would actually be very expensive to make "special runs" of bumpers for areas that don't use front plates. (same goes for wiring harnesses...they are made with plugs for all options and whatever does not get ordered is just not plugged in. Shouldn't cost you more than $5.00!!!

1996 cherokee sport 6 cylinder manual trans. looking for a replacement wiring harness for an 02 sensor near my cat. converter.. the harness has 2 connectors on it to my knowlege, both are near converter,...

Likely the quickest way to find one is at a scrapyard. Next and likely only other option is to order one from a dealer. Before installing, check the connections to make sure that wiring attached inside the remaining plug is still connected.

Replace you turn signal flasher relay, it should be right by your fuse box or near the brake pedal.(it looks like a solenoid, a cylindrical shape, with 3 prongs on the end) it is attached to a wiring harness that you just have to unplug it from. i couldnt find mine at any auto parts store, had to go to jeep, costs 44 bucks. that should do it
