    same issue

  • snash934 Mar 15, 2009

    i had the same problem about two years ago. i noticed that it happened mostly during the winter months. i took the truck in and because the dealership couldn't reproduce the outage, they couldn't diagnose the problem. although i haven't experienced the outage for more than a year now, i'm still bothered knowing that it could happen again.

    I have the same exact problem, but sometimes I have to restart my car for the problem to stop.

    We have the same problem. Intermittently, the dash lights, speedometer, turn signals, etc. will all go out. Has happened about 15 -20 times in the past 2 months. One time when this happened, it turned the ignition key off and on as fast as I could and the lights all came back on.



    I'm taking to the shop on April 23, 2009. Will report back later.

1998 jeep grand cherokee dome lights flash while


You have an exposer in the wire somewhere touching metal. I would assume in the door where the wires loom into the rubber seal but you will have to trace the short down. Or pay a mechanic $65-$90 hour do it for you.

I have a similar problem - every once in a while all of my dash lights flash on like the car is trying to conk out/stall (I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee) - the car has no loss of power and runs fine, just all of the dashboard lights and warnings come on like its going to stall. Happens on dry days, wet days, cold days, warm days - at least 3 times a month. trouble is, because its intermittent no one can find the problem.

My 06 grand cherokee laredo has a 4x4 emblem on the vehicle, and a traction button on the dash, how do I operate the 4x4?


Your jeep should have full time four wheel drive. To place the transfer case in low range look down to the console towards the rear and you will see a "T" shaped handle. To place it into low range you should stop place the vehicle into park and lift the T handle and in the dash a 4X4 indicator lamp will light up. The traction button on the dash would be used in 4 wheel high mode when you start to experience wheel slippage upon take off from a stopped position. This will give you a little more control. You only need to use the low range for very slow speeds in mud or snow. Otherwise just leave it in high range because it is always using 4 wheel drive. This is a very reliable system which Jeep has refined over the years. Your Grand Cherokee is not designed fro hard core off road use. Hard core off road use will destroy the undercarriage. The Grand Cherokee is more of a luxury soccer mom 4X4 with good road manners, a comfortable ride, and good reliability.

I had the same exact problem and jeep looked at it over a dozen times. Jeep replaced the ignition switch and computer but they could never reproduce the problem, of course. I kept bothering Jeep until they replaced part of the wiring harness between the ignition switch the next conection. Problem solved. I had always said that it was a short in the wiring harness but they are too reliant on the in dash computer to tell them the problem. I hope this helps. P.S. this problem will kill your battery.

Instrument Panel goes on and off, as do headlights


You have to remove the panel to check onthe connections behind it, also check the headlights switch, they tend to burn out.

Head lights and dashboard lights come on and off


I had this problem on my wife's Jeep Cherokee.  The only way that I could get it to stop was to take the entire dash apart to get at the back of the instrument panel.  Once you get there, there is a plug in on the back of it, I clean that off with rubbing alcohol and clean the plug up as well.  I couldn't figure anything else to do so I put it back together and haven't had it happen again for the last 6 months.  Just to let you know if your Grand is like her sport, you will get everything off of the dash and think you should be able to get to the instrument panel just to find that there is a clip holding the headlight switch on keeping the panel from coming all the way off.  I had to put my head in the floor and my feet in the air to get to it, but I got it off.  Good luck!
