Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

6 Answers

What do I do if my Instrument cluster lights went out?

The entire instrument panel went out on my 1998 Grand Cherokee Laredo. Is this a fuse or fuse link? If not, what could it be. I did no get an owners manual when the vehicle was purchased.

    I would like to know which fuse it might be. The fuse compartment does not list which fuse goes to what.

Hi, the fuse board is just below the steering wheel.
Open and it would have labels on it.
Check if any relevant fuse went bad and replace it. Those fuses would be less than 3 bucks.

When this hapens there is a short in the circuit board. It is an one entire piece. There are no fuses for this and there's no way every bulb would burn at same time. This is a problem with many grand cherokees and also the town & country vans. You can search the net if you'd like, but you will find my answer stands correct. I can see if there is a recall if you'd like.

    There are two fuse boxes on this vehicle.


    The Passenger compartment fuse box is located at the lower right kick
    panel on the passenger side near the floor board. (Basically right
    where the passengers right foot would res ton the floor.)

    The Engine Compartment fuse box or Central Junction Box is
    located near the right fender. ( Facing the vehicle it would be a black
    box with a snap lid on the left hand side of the engine.)

Welcome to Fixya! You need to Check both Fuse Boxes The one under the Hood and the one Under the Dash. The one under the Hood has little boxes called relays. If a Fuse is not Blown it will be a Relay.

First place to go is the fuse box. Looks like you've got one loose fuse. Remove the fuse for the instrument panel cluster.Inspect both the fuse and the socket it's in. Clean or replace as necessary.

1996 grand am instrument panel cluster is not working


Open driver side door, remove fuse access panel on the left side of the instrument panel and check the instrument cluster 10A fuse behind on the fuse block (third row from the top, fourth fuse position note: first two position may be empty). If fuse checks out the connector behind the instrument cluster may have worked loose. Remove steering column covers, remove bezel around the instrument panel (this is held on with push clips), remove four screws from the cluster and ease the cluster out just enough to see and correct the problem. hope this has helped.

Insturmentation panel lights fuse blows when i start car


Try to remove the instrument panel and disconnect the harness to see if doing that gets rid of the blown fuse when starting the car. If it does, then the instrument panel should be replaced with another. If the fuse still blows when starting, then there is a wire shorted to ground somewhere.

Where is the fuse for the tail lights for jeep '96 grand cherokee


Unfortunately, could not find owners manual for 1996.

Website only has models 2004-current
=> http://www.jeep.com/en/owners/manuals/index.html

There are two fuse boxes. One under driver compartment usually left to the steering colum. A label is stamp to identify each fuse. I would look at Park Lights and Instrument Cluster fuses. The easy way is to take a flashlight and look at all fuses. If they are all okay. Then just remove the Park Lights and Instrument Cluster fuse and reseat them. The other fuse box is under the hood and near the batter. It also has a label to identify each fuse.
