Marker lights wont go on


on 1998 and earlier models, the side marker light housing is located next to the headlight housing. Remove the screws and pull out the housing to access the bulbholder on the back of the housing. On 1999 and later models, the park and turn signal bulbs are located in the bottom of headlight housing. Twist the bulbholders out to replace the park or turn signal bulbs. Installation is the reverse of the removal directions.

How do I replace the turn signal bulb on my 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee? It seems like I must remove alot of the front end to get at the bulb... is this true?


For the front turn signal:

There are two ways to get at the bulb.

Way 1) YOU NEED A SKINNY SHAFTED STAR SCREWDRIVER. This is how the manual describes it: Unscrew the 2 star screws holding the parking light housing on. One is on top, the other is between the parking light and the turn signal. This second screw can be very difficult to get to because the parking light and turn signal housing are very close. After the parking light housing is off, you can unscrew the turn signal housing. The screws should be located on top of the housing, underneath the parking light housing.

Way 2) This is the way I did mine: First, you have to take the headlight housing off. It should be pretty easy to pop off if you pry it the right way. It is held on by 1 square clip and 2 ball and socket clips. There is a small risk of breaking the ball and socket clips, as getting the headlamp housing off does require a little force, so be careful. You may want to take the headlight bulb out first, but isn't necessary. (Removing the right side bulb may require removing the battery) Once the headlamp housing is off, the turn signal bulbs should be very easy to get to.

To remove the bulb, simply turn the bulb socket and it will come out.


For the rear turn signal:


Open the lift gate.

There are 3 hex screws that hold each rear light assembly on. I'd recommend a hex screwdriver, as a socket wrench or box wrench would be very hard to use on the screws. Once the hex screws are off, just tug on the light assembly and it will come off. The bulbs are very easy to get to. The turn signal is the yellow one.

Can't figure out how to change the bulb for turn signal on Jeep


I just changed both bulbs in my 1998 Grand Cherokee. These solutions made it possible, but i will offer some clarification and photos. First of all, all 4 screws are torx T20 as emoesmoe mentions, none are phillips. there are two bulbs that blink: the larger amber bulb is the turn signal light--dealer was cheaper than autozone and only had to purchase one bulb; the other bulb is called a side marker and it also blinks with a turn but stays on with the headlights. see photos that go along with the first two solutions. the first photo shows step one the first screw to take out. second and third photo are step two removing the second screw. the last photo shows the exposed screws to the turn signal housing after the uper light houseing has been removed:

I replaced my parking light bulb in about a minute. You just have to pull the cables. Believe me, this is the procedure stated in my SAAB repair manual. Those cables are reinforced, don't worry. To tell the truth a would have not done that if I hadn't seen it in the manual . Contact me and I can send you the diagram with the step by step directions. fabian_romero_s@hotmail.com
