Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
It sounds as thought you have a short, or shorts in the electrical system. In all honesty, you are not likely to get a good answer online. I would have to look at the vehicle and trace the wiring to find the problem. A few things to check out first though. As basic as it seems, check the battery cables. Clean the battery terminals and cables, and check the other end of the wires where they hook to ground and to the starter. It sounds like your problem is more complex then that, but I've seen bad cables cause a lot of strange problems before.
If you take it to someone to fix, they are likely to charge you by the hour to diagnose the problem, which means you want to make sure you take it to someone who knows what they are doing. A good Chrysler 5 star dealership should have at least one good electrical guy. If you take it to an independent shop, you might pay less per hour, but likely more overall.
