You probably blew a fuse.
Look under the hood for the fuse box and check the BIG fuses.

My sons1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the gauges light on and would not start like battery was dead. Had it jump started and it started.When he put in park it stalled jumped again and worked.


Sounds like a charging system problem and the alternator may not be working. The gauge light will come on if the charging gauge is showing low so you will look at the gauges. Have the battery and charging system tested

My radio works on my 2004 jeep grand Cherokee but the time and station don't light up do I need to replace the radio


any thing can be fixed.! (my job that, before retired)
the question (only) is time and money?
if the labor is more than a new upgraded radio.
why fix old.?
is the dash dimmer working, and all other lights on dash bright
the the radio has issues. (stock) if not stock the wires are bad behind radio. the dial wire.
does the radio work? and dial right, can you see the stations, with a flash light, ? then the back light is burned out.
if VFD display or LCD dead , big time $$$ fix.

on mine , 04 i put a new , media only head end.
am/fm , USB , flashcard, aux in, radio
and have micro usb there, very tiny with 4000 songs.
no more discs and radio head is very tiny.

2000 jeep grand cherokee will not start and battery guage is dead


if the other light is ok and the fuel gauge is only dead, may be you have no more fuel, try to refill fuel, if the battery is also dead replace new battery.

My 94 jeep grand cherokee has no spark or fuel to the engine. the check engine light will not come on and the security system doesnt work. gas down the throtle boy doesnt let it start.


1-check fuses if fuses ok go number 2.
2-check for power to the crank shaft sensor (test light) for a positive if no positive replace asd relay.
if you got power to sensor check for signal while cranking on the engine (connect the test light to (+) on battery if no signal replace the sensor. hope this helps.

Everything has stopped working in my 1993 jeep grand cherokee limited edition. the door locks do not work. my compass/temp gauge has stopped working. the signal lights no longer work. my heat/and air no...


does the car start? if it doesnt...then your battery is dead. see if it"ll jump start at least for awhile, if it does and dies again...your alternator could be bad and not charging the battery.

ALL POWER WINDOWS AND LOCKS DO NOT WORK


Check all fuses in fuse panel at dash & also under hood at power distribution box, usually near battery.
