Question about 1994 Jeep Cherokee Country

What circuits are controlled by the ignition off draw fuse in the 1994 Cherokee Sport 4.0 liter?

    In the power distribution center, under the hood, fuse number 16 is described in the owner's manual as "ignition off draw." I think this means equipment like the radio and courtesy lights but not the headlights. I'm trying to find out exactly what it does include so that I can trace what's draining my battery. I've found out that with that fuse removed there's no drain on the battery.

    Don't exactly know what you are asking, but if you mean which circuts are "hot" with ignition off, check fuses inside cabin fuse panel with a test light and see what is hot all the time (write down what fuses are for and use for reference.)

I have a 91 & a 93 in the driveway. The schematics I have are so pathetic that they tell me nothing (not even the wire colours match). But, the advice I posted will pretty much apply. See if the "hot" fuses on the under dash fuse block go dead when you pull that fuse. If they do (likely) replace the big fuse and then pull them one by one and see which one is drawing on the battery. Some of the fuses may have sub-circuts but at least you will be closer to a solution. I know you have probably looked at this already but I've found that better than 75% of this kind of problem is related to the glove box door not closing properly, keeping the light on where you can't see it.
good luck

What is the maximum parasitic draw with the ignition off for a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo inline 6cyl 4.0 liter?


I'm not sure they have vehicle specific parasitic draw tests, but I've heard that it should never exceed 0.2amps but I also think I've heard 0.5amps somewhere else. The modules and lights must be off when checking these things too which I'm sure you know (the door can't be open to pull fuses inside).

On my 1994 grand cherokee laraedo 4.0 under the hood is mya fuse box with a 20amp fuse labeled I.O.D wat does that stand for and wat does it do?


It stands for Ignition off draw. Its a test point used for battery power draw with the ignition off. Your amps when testing this circuit should never be over 20mA or 0.020 amps. Hope this helps.

Blowing engine control 30amp fuse


basically what you want to do here is put a 25 watt bulb across the blown fuse.the dead short will limit the current to 2 amps and light up the light bulb.check all the wires in the ignition circuit one at a time,disconnecting them one at a time until the bulb goes out.then you know which line is drawing current. to blow a 30 amp fuse,that is 360 watts.looks like a short in a wire somewhere,or the ignition module that drives the ignition is shorted.find the module that is connected to the coil packs and disconnect it.see if the short is still there..
