Question about Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

No tail or parking lights

89 Jeep Cherokee- i have the chrysler repair manual the troubleshooting guide for inoperative taillights states to check for a short to ground in the DK BLU circuit. However, none of the leads to the headlight switch are dark blue(my original guess) None of the circuits are labeled DK BLU. I've gone thru all the wiring diagrams but no DK BLU. Any ideas?? Oh, I replaced the headlight switch first, thinking that was the problem. I noticed the wiring connector looks like it got hot and is a little melted/warped. Many thanks

Problem is they keep changing wire colours...My 93 has circuts that aren't in any manual I've seen yet!
Have you tested the bulb sockets for power & ground? Also make sure all wires on the melted connector are clean enough to make good contact. (break it apart if you need to and connect each wire to each terminals...just keep a diagram of it for later.

No tail and dash lights on 1990 jeep Cherokee Laredo , I checked the fuse box under the dash all looks ok . however I don't see anything for tail or dash lights maked.


Viking here, There is a good chance that there is another fuse box under the hood. If you didn't locate a fuse for the lights it makes sense that the fuse is in another location. Look on the firewall, fender, for a box. Hope this helps you. Viking

The tail lights on my 2006 dodge grand caravan don't work. Any ideas as what could be wrong?


Check that the fuse is not blown and that there is no wiring fault. Otherwise check that the lights are not blown as well, and look at the following YT video to illustrate the removal of the light:

Fuse keeps blowing dash lights and tail lights dont work jeep cherokee sport 1999


There are several fuses involved. I need to know which one(s). As for the taillights, the primary power source is 20A fuse 17 in the power distribution center. The tan/blk wire connects to the headlamp switch which, in park position, applies +12 volts through 10A fuse 7 in the junction block to the left tail light. The headlamp switch, in park position, also apples +12 volts through 10A fuse 23 in the junction block to the right tail light.

I need to know which fuse is blowing the instrument lights so you will have to follow up

Troubleshooting tail light assembly issues in my Jeep


Check fuse panel, under dash, as well as under hood. Owners manual should also give you map of fuses. May say"park" lights, "running lights", or something similar.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee; taillights go out w/ brake press


Try checking one of 2 things, Check the fuses. I had a 94 cavalier do the same thing after i put a 30amp fuse in to a 25amp slot for the courtsy fuse. Also check the bulbs in the tail of the vehical to make sure they are the right ones. If this dose not do it get a test light & wire diagrham, you may have a bad short to ground some where in the brake light wires.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Left Tail/Stop Light Inop.


You need to check for power and ground. If you dont have a volt meter you can get a good cheap one from radio shack. If there is no power recheck with a known good ground. All the lights on that side share a common ground. Check the sockets for signs of burning or corrosion. There is a plug in the left rear quater panell. If you have no power check the corrisponding wire at that connector. The wires splice togeter just before the connector. So if the other brake/tail light is working you know the problem is after that. Hope this helps. Im sure you'll find the problem.
