Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Headlights went out & dash lights went on brighter

Have 1997 jeep grand cherokee limited v8. the headlights went out & then some of the dash lights got brighter while others went dark. I held on the bright lights & they stayed lit as long as I held them on.
I'd noticed the dash lights weren't very bright before this happened but the dash lights had never been very bright. I bought this jeep this past July.
Also when I clicked on the lock button the jeep started up by itself & didn't shut off until I double clicked on the unlock button!!
I was about ready to ask it where it thought it was going without me!

Please help & thank you.

    I checked the following evening & all was back to the way it was originally!! I DO NOT have a remote starter so how it started all by itself I'll never know, I guess.



    I do intend to have everything checked & I appreciate your response. thank you,

That can be a whole lot of things causing this but first if you have an aftermarket remote starter unhook it first to see if the problem resolves it's self,also there are fuses for the headlights check these,another thing to check is have the alternator check as one that puts out to much voltage will blow fuses and make dash lights really bright,autozone can check these for free anything over 14 volts the alternator regulater has went out .

    Ok but just because you do not have the remote doesn't mean the jeep don't have one either factory or aftermarket,write down your vin number and call a chrysler dealer and ask if it came with a remote

Instrument Panel goes on and off, as do headlights


You have to remove the panel to check onthe connections behind it, also check the headlights switch, they tend to burn out.

HI, It may seem obvious, but sometimes overlooked.... have you checked the oil level, as low oil can cause some strange things to happen! My 96 4 liter would be reluctant to move sometimes, but after I topped it up, it has been fine.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited 4.7 speedometer flips around when headlights are on bad, and rarely when they are not on.


Sounds like a "bad" earth on the dash head unit. Also check enging to chassis earths, gearbox to chassis, battery to chassis etc.
