SOURCE: 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited 4.7 speedometer flips around when headlights are on bad, and rarely when they are not on.

Sounds like a "bad" earth on the dash head unit. Also check enging to chassis earths, gearbox to chassis, battery to chassis etc.

I have a 96' jeep grand cherokee laredo the head light switch in it is w/o fog lamp and w/o auto headlight can i switch it to one that has auto headlaight

r u trying to figure out if you install the auto headlight switch that you will have auto headlights, of just if the different switch will work period? there is probably a module required to make auto headlamps work, not just a switch. I would probably just find the correct switch for the truck to avoid any issues

96 jeep cherokee fuse replace

Word to the wise, Theres fuses also in the junction box. Its located in passengers front kick panel. You are having trouble with several fuses. PDC maxifuse 5 is for headlamp switch . owners manual says theres a fuse panel under LH steering wheel. Find yours. then check all fuses with a test light. Theres supposed to be a relay center to the right under the dash. hmm. Better check behind kick panel RF for that too. Dual flasher is supposed to be there, nearby (relay center). Now goto the public library and have them show you the mitchell database. If they have one. There is also a tsb for towing relays interacting with turn signls (missing wire???) and updates for many PDC boxes(fuse links and various relay repairs). Theres updates for diagrams, connector pin views and vehicle locations. jeep has been kept in disarray with many owner changes as a company. Your search has just begun. Bring a fresh cup of coffee and plenty of spare change to get prints of their updated info. The factory manuals and schematics are inundated with misdirection and upside down pictures. I read recalls first and then tsb's then "dealer info". painstakingly checking each figure is the only way to happen upon it. I dont think Eugene could read, so be careful and map out the testing your own way. happy jeep!!! It seems every jeep is special in its own way. Hopefully yours isn't as special as the (no start)(no spark) grand cherokee I have been working on. I found a plug with 3 wires where the schematic lacked the p/s wires. and this was on the transmission neutral/start!!! and connected to start enable at the pcm.!!! Pray for me. or the jeep. back up lights are PDC fuse 11. auxillary lights are PDC fuse 13. dome/courtesy is PDC 16. turn signal flasher fuse is jct box cavity 8. courtesy,radio, clock and memory etc. are fuse cavity 9 jct box. headlamp delay module is jct cavity 11. instrument lights are with clock, radio /clock and memory,headlamp switch,and yes you guessed it, park lamps they are jct box cavity 15 . trailer tow is 16. 17 is gages, headlamp delay module, chime module,ovrhd cnsl. 19 is instrument panel lamps, and radio illumination. circuit breakers are often inside the lightswitch. if you have class III towing theres a circuit breaker located somewhere" near" the jct box. Be sure and answer with a detailed rendition of the findings you incurr. Harbor freight has DVOM's and wiring repair supplies. See also Ace Hardware or Radio Shack. our local car parts stores have ideas as well as tools and supplies. all the best!!

Where is the headlight delay module located on a 2000 jeep cherokee

If your delay module is working correctly, you should be able to turn your headlights off first, then shut the engine off and by then, all lights will go off. never need to use my delay unit always shut headlights off then the engine.

In the fuse panel of a jeep cherokee 1995, where is the a fuse for the headlights? which one is it? or where is a (micro) control fuse? where can i see a diagram of this fuse panel, free. Thanks, Larry

Number 11 is a 25 amp (natural) Headlamp delay module and also controls the horn.
Number 15 is a 15 amp (Lt. Blue) this controls the instrument panel lamps, headlamp switch, parking lamps and radio/clock memory.
number 17 is a 7.5 Amp (Violet) controls instrument cluster gauges, headlamp delay module, chime module, overhead console. I hope this helps because there are several different configurations for the jeep. So if this doesn't make sense then let me know and I will send you a different one.

Dash and shifter lights in 1996 jeep cherokee wont light

Hello and welcome to FixYa . Locate the dial that controls the brightness of the dashboardlights. If the control is not immediately evident. Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse. Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights Replace the fuse if necessary. If just one part of the instrument panel is not lighting up, then you have either a burned-out bulb or a wiring problem.
