2002 jeep grand cherokee blows fuse for interior lights

My 02 GC keeps blowing the 15amp fuse as soon as i put it in. The rear wiper is not working either. Not a wiring guy. Is there any common fix i could do myself?

SOURCE: I have a 2004 Jeep

I'd look at the door switches (for dome light) first, then check that light itself has not shorted against roof. Does the fuse blow when the bulb has been removed? Some of this stuff has been routed through "modules", depending upon options and mfg date.( Delay controls and others.) I have seen no less than three "diagrams"... none of which are specific enough to aid in repair. If you physically can't trace problem, you will need the exact wiring diagram specific to manufacture date of your vehicle (can be 6mos different than just year.)

SOURCE: 1998 jeep grand cherokee limited fog lights don't work.

This means you have a short. I am assuming you are talking about the fog light fuse. Does this fuse blow whether the fog lights are off? or just when turned on?

If the fuse blows when the switch is off the switch is bad too. If the fuses only blows when the switch is turned on you have a short in the wiring or bulb.

I don't know if you have test equipment so first I would say to remove both driving bulbs from their sockets and see if there is corrosion. Fix that problem if there is corrosion.

Then install a fuse without the bulbs and see if the fuse blows. If you have a test light you can bridge the fuse panel without putting a fuse in. If there is a connection you have a hot wire grounding. If there is no problem install one light, fuse or bridge the fuse holder and see if 1 light works. Try each side. This way you can isolate the problem. Then visibly inspect wiring.

SOURCE: blowing fuses jeep wont start

use a circuit breaker or paper clip with pliers so you do not burn yourself use paper clip as fuse unplug engine controll sensors 1 at a time and check if problem is gone after each one is unplugged an engine controll sensor is most likely shorting out if you have a map sensor try that first then move on to other components tps,fuel pump ect. till you find wich is fauly causeing short this should help you just be carefull with paperclip am saying to do this instead of blowing expensive fuses

use a voltage meter to check the circuits for cotinuity if they are grounded out you may end up with even worse problems down the line. volt meter should read no load.

The circuit load is much higher with the HID lights, you need to rewire the headlights to a large gauge wire.

1997 GC Jeep, 4.0 L . Keeps blowing fuel pump fuses. Told that 20 amp was recommended.


You should always replace fuses with the same rated fuse as the one removed. Most likely if it keeps blowing the same fuse something in that circuit is directly shorted out.What fuse is it that keeps popping?

04 jeep grand cherokee limited, my four windows dont work but my moon roof window works, rear windshield wiper doesnt work, interior lights go on and dont turn off, any reason why or any solutions?


with the windows it obviously is something common to all four and the first item I would check is the fuse. Interior lights are controlled by the headlight switch and a worn switch can be the problem. If these are not the problem than I would want to check the wiring, specifically the ground. Ditto for the rear wiper. Fuse first. Switch second. Wiring third.

Blowing dome light and rear wiper fuse.


Sounds like a dead short to me. You will need to find a wiring diagram for this one. Without it, I'd start by unpluging the motor and the light one at a time. Another good place to check is at the rear hatch, where the wiring harness enters the hatch, this is a common area for broken/shorted wires.Check that and let me know, I'll help how I can.
Good luck
