I am not getting power to my trailer lights on my 1998 jeep grand Cherokee

I would unplug the wire harness and check the contacts. Even if the contacts look good , Scrape them shiny then spray with electrical parts cleaner then grease lightly with dielectric grease. Also check where your ground wire goes - or maybe you'll want to run a test ground wire from the harness to the trailer to ensure a proper ground. 95% of the time the ground is the issue in trailer lights. Good luck!!!

I wired up a 4 pole trailer wiring harness up and went by instructions. i wired both turn signals up white to ground and tail light to tail light but i have no brake light wire on the harness so my brake...

You need to purchase the trailer wire kit that has a solid state module that will allow the lights operate correctly. It plugs right in the factory socket, no cutting of wires are needed, and it costs around 40 dollars. It is the only way to go for your vehicle.

You will need to trace the speaker wires to see if they are disconnected anywhere in the harness. are you sure the speakers are OK? Fopr wire locations on the radio try going to: They list the pin locations and wore coding you will need.
Good luck

Where do i hook a trailer wireing harness up on a 04 grand cherokee

Hi John,

I'm not sure about the 2004, but my 86 Cherokee has a wire bundle beneath the rear bumper. A test light and yelling to a friend in the drivers seat made wire identification pretty easy. (I don't get up that easy any more from a prone position ;0)

AND this will help with the actual hookups.

Best regards

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited - flasher relay location

More than likely you have a bad ground. Under the rear of the vehicle, behind the rear bumper there will be a few wires running to a bolt in the frame (left side i think) Check that no wires are loose or boken. Also if you have a trailer wiring harness, check to see if it has not been damaged. Let me know if this helps :)

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee battery drainage (continued)

If this jeep has a towing package, and it is a factory pakage, if I remember correctly, the left side rear inner panel by the tailgate has a module pack behind it. Disconnect it and test for draw again.
