Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee

Lights on 2002 Jeep Cherokee 3.7 Ltd

I start driving the car, the lights go from dipped beam to parking lights. I have to drive on spot lights to get home. The lights will not stay in main beam. The car is switched off. The lights keep going on, stay on for a whileand then go off on there own accord, this keeps happening until the battery is flat. Jeep say they have done a diognostic check, this is showing no faults and they can not find the problem. I am very worried this is going to cost me a fortune with Jeep and still not get the problem sorted. Please note this is a British car and is the 2002 Jeep Cherokee 3.7 Ltd

    Jeep now tell my that they think it is the control unit,they are waiting for an e-mail from chrysler. They still maintain this would not show up on a diognostic check. The labour costs are going through the roof. Should I believe everything they are telling me?. How do I prove otherwise? any help is welcome.

    Many Thanks

Multifunction switch is bad. Tell the dealer they should have been able to diagnose it easily by the symptoms you describe. It will not throw a fault code by the way. The dealer must be incompetent.

2003 jeep grand cherokee lhd headlight adjusment for driving in UK

i believe yours is rhd that is why you are asking this. if you have no HID modern xenon lights ( probably you dont on WJ), you need to get a black tape and mask the upper 1/3 of your head lights to remove the V marking of light on road. ( which is to illuminate the right side of road) by this way you wont blinding incoming traffic.

The brake lights on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't shut off.

The brake light switch is defective or out of adjustment. More than likely located on the brake pedal arm near the top.

02 Jeep Grand Cherokee Low HL & BL Out?

Well if all those years your car was working perfectly fine with that blue fuse just get a new 1 and replace it. But then if the lights still don't work check all the wiring in the car that goes to the lights and if there is no problem go to a mechanic and ask him to look at it. That's all i can really help you with i'm sorry i'm not a mechanic yet or i would help you further.
