Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country

96 jeep cherokee se replaced head light pull switch

Replaced pull switch because lights began to flicker. Found that If I pulled switch out slowly, the running lights would light, but only in certain spots. This is what has lead me to believe that the switch was bad. New switch, same problem? I have jumped power to the relay that activates the running lights, and that seems to work. Only trouble is that I don't have any running lights in the running light position? I have checked all grounds, and like I said, it will work the running lights if you pull the switch out slowly, but not in the normal position. Right before the normal position for the running lights to be activated.

Have you checked the breaker and the hi/low beam switch for power? Did you look at the connectors in the switch plug? I have a really poor diagram that seems to be non-specific on this. Also, if you have a headlight delay module check that also.

Hi, i have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee, and the brake lights will not go off. i have never seen this before, any suggestions?

Brake light switch is staying in the on position. It's located under the brake pedal. It will have to be replaced and can easily be done at home.

Overhead lights flicker and stay on when the car is off, pulled fuse (20A-#7 cluster), lights go out when car is off but stay on when car is running. note: an after market stereo was installed in the jeep...

Have you tried replacing the plunger switches for the doors, if your lights are flickering and/or staying on they are probably going bad. You can pick them up at just about any parts store

Tail lights & dash lights not working on 1994 jeep cherokee

Check with a dealer and see if your vehicle uses a body or lighting control module...These usless items are being used more and more, and causing all anticipated problems excessive electronics can cause, when used for "updating" time-proven working systems by "engineers". Otherwise, check plug on harness to make sure that connectors are clean and not melted or burned.
