96 Jeep Cherokee headlights go on and off after being on a while.
I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee Automatic, 2 wheel drive.After the headlights have been on for about 10 minutes, they go on and off. I have replaced the headlight switch. Still have the same problem. I don't have the owners manual. I have looked at a Haynes manual chassis exterior electrical system diaghram. It shows a fuse then a circiut breaker(also calling the breaker the headlamp switch). I looked in the control center under the hood. The lid to the control panel dosen't list a circiut breaker on it. I didn't locate one on the under dash fuse block either. I also cannot figure out which fuse mightbe for the headlights.Also could an inline fuse link be the problem? If so, can you help me in locating where it could be. Any help wolud be greatly appreciated. Thanks- Ray

A 96 grand came with 3 different transfer cases in different models. if you see beside the 4x4 shifter there is the shift pattern printed there. some models only had the all-wheel drive option with high and low. others had 2wd-4wd high-n-4wd low. I would guess that since you're asking this, your jeep has only the all-wheel drive transfer case option. if this is the case... you are not able to run your jeep in 2wd
Any all wheel drive will give less fuel miles.(compared to ones you engage as needed) The Chrysler v8 is a time proven engine, pretty much a copycat of a chevy with some changes to make it their own. Overall, I haven't heard any really bad stuff about them. If you look at the problems on this site, there seem to be fewer jeep probs than all other vehicles. (even though some problems are really weird!!!) What you really need to see is the vehicles history to make sure it's been maintained and has not been back to a shop for the same thing over and over. Good luck!
The headlights are on a relay and maybe its getting weak. I would have it checked and replaced because it could go out and stay out. God Bless Greg Oh yeah most of the time it is built into the head light switch.
