Question about Jeep Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 1998 jeep grand cherokee Laredo limited 5.9. I am trying to get the tow package electrical to work, but it doesn't seam to get any power to the plug in at the trailer hitch. I have checked

Tow package electrical problem. I also have had trouble with the alarm system going off randomly so in order to fix that, I removed the fuse from the fuse box on the passenger lower kick panel. Could the electrical problem with the tow package be tied to the alarm?

Sure, why not look that up in the FSM.?
why not say which function fails.
park, turns, brake? backup (all 4?) (check ground #5)
after market wire job or factory tow package?
we cant guess any of that.

you can see all the orig. wiring here.
ZJ, click that and 8w wiring chapter.
and see it all, every inch of wire in car."STOCK"
stock means, as it left the factory Day 1.

I looked and didnt see a tow option in the FSM. 1998.
but didnt read every page.

There’s a wire harness and plug that go thru a flexible boot between the body and the front doors to control the switch clusters on the doors.
Over time opening the doors will affect these components.

  1. Check fuse # 8
  2. Make sure the plug (referenced above) is secured.
  3. Peel back the boot carefully, and check the wires.
(In my Jeep, I found the black wire broken and the light blue w/blue stripe wire cracked. I fixed them on the drivers side, and the mirrors and the locks now work. My windows are still not working, so I’m going to check the passenger side.)
Good luck!

SOURCE: No power to tail light on trailer- 2004 Dodge durango factory tow

If this is a factory light harness for the trailer hookup on your Caravan. Look under the hood for a fuse box. Many 2000+ vehicles have this with separate fuses just for the trailer lights.

Look in the owners manual first. I have seen some of the fuse boxes under the back seat on the drivers side. Also try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. This should help. Mike

try replacing the sockets in the tailights/brake lights. worked for me. $10 each. i had to replace all of mine because just replacing the brake sockets didn't solve the problem on the right side. you can test it by exchanging tail light for brake light socket and if that works you know it is the socket

Can i use a transmition from 1998 grand cherokee laredo 4wd to a jeep laredo 1998 4.0 4wd. will work same trnsmition?


Hi Jose, I've never tried but if you go visit a breakers yard and compare the physical dimensions of both boxes and they match up, there is no reason why they should not. Most manufactures use the same units in a variety of models and if you've found a similar vehicle with identical uses the parts are most likely interchangeable. Regards John

What is the towing capacity of 4wd 1998 grandcherokee laredo, 4.0 ltr


You can tow just about anything with anything if you have the right gearing. BUT, Your limit is set by the kind of hitch (class rating) you are going to use. I use a simple rule of not towing anything more than double the weight of the vehicle you are pulling with. In towing heavy loads you will need an electric trailer braking system, stabilizer bars, lighting harness addition (applies overall...some require an add on module additional to wiring to prevent system damage), heavy duty radiator and an external transmission cooler. (also, more frequent trans fluid changes, best to use synthetics)
If you will be towing on a regular basis, I'd also look into getting the "police package" in regards to sway bars and shocks (all around) as it helps with control.
