Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport

1 Answer

96 cherokee help!

Hey angie, thanks a bunch for your help....so far the fuses seem good to go, and the voltage on the battery is okay...according to my dad it does need to charge, he thinks it could either be the brain or the cellonoid, because the lights still seem to turn on really bright, but absolutely no sound from the car when the key goes in, no clicks, no nothing. i hope its nothing serious!

You know what I have seen a couple of cases with a Jeep cherokee where it was the computer on the pass side firewall where water would leak down and get inside the computer and fry it. may be a local junk yard has one or ebay. but do check for voltage at the small wire on the starter while key is in cranking mode if there is 12 volts at that terminal the ignition switch is good. if not presume an ignition switch, or worst case scenerio its the computer. sometimes trial and error works.

I can't get the vehicle information center in my 96 Jeep grand Cherokee to work no lights, warning, nothing, can't locate exact fuse but all looks good?


I would start with the Fuse Box under the hood. Start by pulling the Fuse's 1 at a TIME!! I have done it befor time & time agean. It's probley by the Battery. It's a black box that has " Main Fuse " or something alone that line. There just like the Fuses under the Dash, BUT BIGGER! They can be hard to tell if they blew. I have done it so, much that I know. If it's not that I would check the Fuse Box in the Dash. Jerry Dunn

Hey guys, my caravan started this morning then shut off and won't start again. Heres what I did so far checked fuel pump fuse good, fuel pump relay good swapped with other. Removed neg battery cab


If you have voltage at the fuse and relay, and at the pump, but no fuel pressure, I would say the pump has died or the tank is empty.
Have you checked for voltage at the pump yet ?

Have 96 jeep cherokee sport will not start not getting fuel or fire cranks over fine all fuses and relays are good


Hey I have a 96 grand Cherokee aswell I had the same prob. When you turn the key to the on position does the dash light say your out of gas but you know your not? If so it's your crank shaft position sensor a $60 part it's located above the tran so youll have to lower not drop it to get to it. Shouldn't take more than 30 mins to do hope I was able to help an good luck

Hi,i have a 96 accord 4 cyl. vtec. just recently there has beeen a power loss issue. i have changed the alternator,check the ignition switch,tested fuses , battery seems fine,connections are good no...


check the alternator voltage , it has to be 13.8 to 14.4 vdc. it sounds like your car is running off the battery alone. Sometimes a bad battery will take out an alternator,and after replacing it goes again.Check all connections,and check the feedback terminal on the alternator is telling the alternator to switch on.

STILL CANT LOCATE THE INTERIOR FUSE BOX HONDA ACCORD 1.8 1996 MOD


The 96 Accord interior fuse box is under the dash, drivers side. Look for the small access panel with a thumb twist on it. Picture below:

My 96' Jeep Cherokee will not turn over or start


ASE Mechanic here. check all the fuses to start, and check voltage on battery. if there was a battery draw all night the vehicle might have started but the alternator could not charge the battery because its power was too low and causing the ignition to die and then not allowing the vehicle to start. keep me posted!!!!!!!!!!!
