Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport
Replaced ignition switch, all fuses in the fuse box, no dashlights, radio, heater, fuel pump not coming on NO IGNITION. Please help me I want my jeep back.
If its completely not doing anything, it may be the park-neutral safety switch- it engages when you put the jeep into park,and if bad will not let anything happen- its as if the jeep is still in gear, and it kills everything. Jiggle your gearshift, go in and out of park a few times- might help.
Other fix is to open the hood, find the starter relay, remove the black plastic cover over the relay guts, and with the ignition switch on, press down on the relay- it bypasses the safety switch,and should start right up. You won't shock yourself- we've been doing it intermittently for two years.
