I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee that keeps blowing the fuse that runs the dome lights and the rear wiper motor... Is there a common short that would cause this?

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.)

Why does my turn signal/ hazard light fuse keep blowing out


you have a short in one of the light sockets or a worn wire from the wiring harness. could be the flasher assembly. are the turn signals different bulbs from the brake lights? Does using the brakes blow the fuse? (Rear lights or brake light switch on brake pedal). left or right turn signal blowing the fuse will tell which side has the short. 4 ways only, replace the relay.

I have a 1998 jeep cherokee. The front wipers are not working. Can you plese help me solve this problem


Check the fuses first. If the fuse keeps blowing, it could be binding linkage. It could be the wiper switch. Make sure power is getting to the wiper motor.
Also there is a contact in the wiring of the wiper motor that parks the wiper blades even if you shut off the wiper switch mid cycle. If this contact is bad, the wipers won't work.

My windshield wipers suddenly stopped working on my '96 Jeep Cherokee. I replaced a fuse that was bad, but they still don't work. Help!


if the fuse failed then that means one of few things...

1.) motor has failed causing excessive current draw
2.) circuit has direct short to ground
3.) short to ground that caused fuse failure is now an open

you need to check for power and ground at the wiper motor

keep us posted

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
