Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

1997 Grand Cherokee Laredo

I just bought the car for my wife to drive....the car diagram in the center console keeps flashing. The only thing lit up is an orange curved rectangle where it appears the windshield would be, directly behind the hood on the diagram, as well as the day/date/time. The other lights light up telling you when the door is open and stuff like that. How do you set/reset the diagram? Pushing in the set button does nothing. Any ideas how to set the day/date/time to the correct day/date/time?

If all else fails, can i just disconnect this thing? Maybe pull out a fuse or something? I really dont need a flashing diagram to distract her while she's driving.

Thanks for any help you can give us!

    Thanks Motor.....that is all it was...added fluid and the light stopped blinking, which in turn allowed me to set the clock and day/date settings also.



    Heck, the guy I bought it from said the light has been blinking since 2004 and he never knew how to correct it so he just lived with it. Thanks again for the help.

My 2001 chevy tahoe's a/c and blower on the front panel and the console above the center console does not work but the middle console's rear fan works. also the lights for the internal circulation,...


This is for front blower motor. The orange wire is voltage, hot all the time, fuse protected. The black wire is chassis ground, you can check both those wires with test lite. The top wire, control from hvac control module. That may be a pulse width modulated signal? This was for automatic hvac w/o roof.

1998 Volvo V70 with potential transmission problems?


Yes, it's the 'pnp' switch (also known as the inhibitor switch) which is on the side of the transmission.

I own 2 Volvo 960s (3 litre automatics) which are similar in many respects ... and have that flashing arrow. It's a well known fault and you don't have much to worry about.

Rather than write it all here, you can read what I wrote as an ebay guide about it at http://reviews.ebay.co.uk/Volvo-960-Automatic_W0QQugidZ10000000003233806

I did put similar info on my website at http://www.glennsmart.btinternet.co.uk/volvo960.html with photos

Though the ebay guide is better ...

If you haven't got time to read it ... forget the flashing arrow and put a bit of black tape over it ... My wife's car has (192,000 miles) had that arrow flashing for 3 years. My car (100,000 miles) has had that flashing arrow since I bought it 1 year ago.

I did change the pnp on both cars ... but you also need to have the computer error reset by Volvo to have the light extinguished. Don't worry ... keep driving.

Orange check light on my dash flashes while driving.


That orange light means that you must have your braking system check...most probably it's the pads wear indicators that are earthing warning you that the pads are worn.
