Question about 1997 Jeep Wrangler
1997 Jeep Wrangler. When I start the jeep the headlights will not come on when it is cold outside. The high beams will not flash either. All other lights work fine. They finally do come on after about ten minutes of warming up. This is only a problem because I work nights.
I have never heard of this before, but I would check the headlight relay. The relay could be sticking internally, although this would be a rare condition. It might also have a corroded socket or terminals. If you can locate the relay, see if it is identical to another relay...and just swap it, being careful to not swap it with something that will not allow the car to run. Relays are cheap. You can also find it by having someone else switch the lights on and off repeatedly, while you listen for clicking under the hood with the engine not running. When you hear clicking, identify the relay by placing a finger on it as the lights are being switched on and off. You will be able to feel the relay switching on and off. Of course, you will have to wait until the lights actually come on when trying to find the relay. Good luck. Chip
