Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee
I am trying to find the horn under the hood of my jeep to disconnect it!!!! I bought a Haynes manual and there isn't one thing in there on a horn...grrrrrr!
Look around the front grill, maybe from underneath, you'll see them, disconnect the spade wire and don't let it short on anything.

There could be a fusible link under the hood off the starter relay that is burnt out.

Others have had this problem too. Most times it's a loose connection behind the gauge cluster.:
When you take the dash apart to get at the back of the guage you'll see that the connectors for the panel are attached to a molded piece of black plastic and the panel sits on top of them. The solution I used was to actually cut the plastic back (you can break it back too...) and insert the plugs tightly, then put a dab of hot glue on top and bottom to keep them from backing out. It keeps them nice and snug and you can remove them in one minute with a razor knife if you need to. After about a year I haven't had the problem since.
BTW - your mileage is not accurate if you have this problem. I noticed that when the gauges are off, it does not count mileage...went about 5000k miles without an oil change once...Just some addt'l info.
I know it's not a factory fix, but it costs about $1 for a glue stick and it only takes about 30min.
Hope it helps you.

I think I have found the problem. When I wiggle the ignition switch the turn signals and radio go on and off so I feel the issue is in the ignition switch. From what I understand the actual electronics for the switch are at the base of the sterring column behind the lower dash panel and is connected by a rod that may need adjusting.
