Question about 1995 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

Power antena runs but doesnt move stereo doesnt light up

I have a 96 jeep Cherokee Ltd it has the factory stereo, which works but the crazy thing will not light up so I can tell what station I am on and all that, and the power antenea motor runs when you trun the key on/ off but the mast does not move.
I just got this vehicle in the last week.
I think I have to take the fender off to get to the antena right?there must be more bolts other than the 3-4 ( star head) that I see when I lift the hood, and if so where are they?

    yes those were 2 separate problems. the stereo is factory that would be digital for that year. I will just replace the stereo, OK I will just replace the antenea too. Thanks.

Likely two seperate problems: the display inside the radio is one, (is it digital?) if not, you can take the bulb out and replace it. Second is the antenna mast: There is a nylon "cord" inside the mast that connects to a spool in the motor...for some reason it has become disconnected from the spool or the spool driving gear has failed.Sometimes if you take it apart, you can fix it but in most cases it's easier to just replace it.

    If you are buying a new radio, most have an accessory adapter harness. try to get one if available it will save a bunch of problems when installing.

What does the sony stereo orange wire connect to in 96 jeep cherokee


The orange wire from the Sony is the illumination wire, 12 volts put to this wire will dim the display on the stereo. The Jeep's BLUE/RED wire should have that function. Use a test light or multi meter to check for 12 volts + on that wire when the park lights are turned on.
The stereo will still function perfectly without the connection, just won't have the auto-dim feature.

How To Change A Fan Belt On A Jeep cherokee 96


That depends on which engine you have. On v8 engines you need to put a wrench on the tensioner pulley and pull it over. On six cyl and four cyl engines there is an adjustment bolt on the power steering pump. Loosen the pump slide bolts and turn the adjustment bolt that moves the pump in and out of adjustment. (bolt runs under the pump...long threaded rod with a bolt head)

G'day mate , my best tip would be to take it back to the electrician, reason is that on a complex set of systems such as a motor car when one "weak" part is replaced then the next weakest one will show up, its a process of elimination not a quick fix , give the man a go as he is highly trained ( we would hope ) hope this helps

I tried to install an aftermarket stereo in my 2005 jeep grand cherokee but it didnt work because i had the wrong wiring harness. but when i tried to put the factory stereo back in it wouldnt work either....


Check that the yellow and the red wires have power while accessories is on, using a test light or multimeter. If they both have power, check earth connection.

All wheel drive v8 issues 96 Jeep Grnd Cherokee Ltd


Any all wheel drive will give less fuel miles.(compared to ones you engage as needed) The Chrysler v8 is a time proven engine, pretty much a copycat of a chevy with some changes to make it their own. Overall, I haven't heard any really bad stuff about them. If you look at the problems on this site, there seem to be fewer jeep probs than all other vehicles. (even though some problems are really weird!!!)
What you really need to see is the vehicles history to make sure it's been maintained and has not been back to a shop for the same thing over and over.
Good luck!
