2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport with Dead Radio

The factory radio in my 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport has been malfunctioning intermittently for years, with the right speaker cutting out sometimes for a week at a time, then coming back. Now both speakers are completely out.

Any ideas?

    Uh oh. It would probably be cheaper to replace the radio, wouldn't it?

    First place I'd look is at the speakers themselves, before getting into wiring etc. Just take any working speaker and touch some extension leads to the ones on yours.

SOURCE: wiring

I had same problem. There is a tube on the drivers side door on the bottom. The tube contains a bunch of wires. You need to remove the tube and make sure your connections are not loose. My husband thought he could do it without taking the tube off but you cant. You reallly need to check all the wiring from the tube located on the bottom of your door.

SOURCE: 99 cherokee radio problem


Either the radio's output ICs are fried or speaker/wires needs to be checked.

Incidentally, there are some higher end versions that has an Infinity Amplifier (P/N: 56038407AD) powering the speakers and not the radio (alone). If so, this amp needs a trigger on from the head unit to work and therefore, the trigger wire/connection must be checked. Otherwise, it may likewise require an internal check.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Malfunction light came on. What is the cause?

You can do one of three things.1. buy a scan tool 2. go to a dealer and pay to have the codes read and diagnosed 3. go to your local parts chain to have it read for free. (call first to verify). The code will tell you what system is malfunctioning and what the malfunction is. The parts store option is my choice, because you can also get the part to fix it if needed and you are not out the $ for diagnostics, nor did you need an appt to get it in.

Short in ignition harness shutdown jeep cherokee sport

If its completely not doing anything, it may be the park-neutral safety switch- it engages when you put the jeep into park,and if bad will not let anything happen- its as if the jeep is still in gear, and it kills everything. Jiggle your gearshift, go in and out of park a few times- might help.
Other fix is to open the hood, find the starter relay, remove the black plastic cover over the relay guts, and with the ignition switch on, press down on the relay- it bypasses the safety switch,and should start right up. You won't shock yourself- we've been doing it intermittently for two years.
