Re: no power lock,park light when off
You can look to the left of your stearing wheel and there is an "ashtray"/ cubby hole you pull that down and out. There lies your fuses. On the ashtray itself on the side of it tells you what each one is and what amp it is. Thery are picture coded but pretty self explanitory. Hope this helps you out. Have a good one!
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

After doing some poking around, I found that flashing parking lights are an indication that the remote start is being used. According to the information I found, the parking lights shouldn't keep on flashing after your 2003 Grand Cherokee has started. I am assuming that your parking lights, however, continue to flash even after the engine has started and you have put your Jeep into gear. Please let me know if that is the case as if it is then you likely have a short somewhere in the wiring that is telling your alarm system's brain that the remote circuit is still being used.
In order for something like this to happen, the major power line is usually pulled high when the remote is activated. When it is pulled high, the computer tells your car's parking lights to enter flash mode. What should happen next is that when the system has fired, the line should drop back to standard voltage and, at that point, the change in voltage should tell your parking lights to go back into standard mode.
What is happening instead is that the flasher light activation circuit remains high even after it is supposed to reset to normal.
The usual cause of this is a short somewhere on the input side of the alarm circuity. It is this side of the circuitry that pulls the parking lights into flash mode. It may be as simple as a short in the alarm system's switching wire harness (even something as simple as a loose crimp on a spade connector or a molex plug insert can cause it.
If you do not have easy access to the switch wiring, the wiring harness or loom, I would suggest taking it to a good alarm shop, telling them what is going on and having them trace the circuits until they find the troublemaker.
I looked at the wiring diagrams and those two circuits should be on two different fuses. The shift lock solenoid is powered by the 10amp turn signal fuse and the 15amp stop light fuse. If the fuse blows when you put it in park, I would say the shift lock solenoid is the problem and the stop light fuse is the one that is blowing. The heater fan and relay are powered by a 60amp fuse and a 15amp fuse but not the stop light fuse. Its possible there is a short some where that has connected these two circuits. You could disconnect the shift lock solenoid to see if the fuse still blows.
Check your belts if they are damaged or if they fell off!! Your drive belts may have loosened or they're worn, causing the A/C and alternator to die. This in turn will result in gradual to immediate power loss. If you have more info...please post!!
Sounds like you may have a short in the ignition switch. I advise replacing this. If the problem is still there, it may be that the stereo was wired wrong, or there is a short or broken wire further down.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
