Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee and suddenly all of the lights, including the headlights, dashboard & everything went off. After a few seconds they came back on & went off and on whenever it

The odd part is the fact that all of the lights went on & off, not just the headlights.

1996 jeep grand cherokee BCM problem


I HAD A 1996 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE BUT SOLD IT. I NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT. I REPLACED IT WITH A 2006 JEEP LIBERTY AND WHILE DRIVING IT TO TAMPA ALL TROUBLE DASH WARNING LIGHTS CAME ON THE A.C. CLUCH DISENGUAGED AND BLEW HOT AIR. THE HEADLIGHTS WENT OUT AND I HAD TO TURN THEM OFF AND BACK ON EVERY 30 MINUTES. EVERYTHING I LOOKED UP ON THE INTERNET TOLD ME TO REPLACE THE BCM. BUT THEN I FOUND A POST THAT TOLD ME TO CHECK FUSE NUMBER 13 WHICH I DID AND IT WAS BLOWN FUSE. IT IS MY OPINION ITS A FUSE. SOMETHING DRASTIC HAS TO HAPPEN TO YOUR VEHICLE BEFORE YOU HAVE TO REPLACE A MAJOR PART. TRY THE FUSES FIRST. REFER TO YOUR OWNERS MANUAL TO FIND THE FUSE FOR THE BCM.

Light


well that alone would help narrow it down...there are only a few things that power all that at the same time. it would be harder if only one went out at a time. the fact that it comes of and on would tell me that there is simply a bad connection some where. I would start with the relays and check power going in to the fuse box and it leaving. try to turn everything just to see if they are tight.like they sould be.

My jeep grand cherokee 96 v8 will start just for a few seconds and shut down and the headlights flash on and off after it die


I would call a dealer because usually when there's flashing lights involved it's a code. If it runs for a few seconds then dies it could be a plugged fuel pump or plugged line. The pump is able to pull enough fuel to let it run for a short time but then runs out. Hope it helps.

Speedometer and Tachometer not working- no check engine light .


Had this problem on my Town & Country Van. I found online to remove the IOD fuse for a few seconds to reset the system. It worked for me. Guages & lights went crazy when I turned it on, but everything went to working properly.

Replace Entire Headlight on 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Open up hood. Look at headlight. There should be two screws on top and two in front that hold support bracket on. You can turn and pull out bulb & socket

Instrument Panel goes on and off, as do headlights


You have to remove the panel to check onthe connections behind it, also check the headlights switch, they tend to burn out.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee intermittent voltage drop, lose electric


I wont list this as a solution, but it seems that working in the area of the alt may have moved around some wiring...the alt may be OK but perhaps an adjacent wire (maybe a ground) is not well connected. Also check crimped on wire loops on alt connectors..they like to corrode at the crimp where it crushes on the actual wire.
