Its broken, that assembly.
the FSM covers this 100%
1: PULL NEG BATTER LUG, and wait for 5minutes min. for caps to discharge in systems. especially the next.
2: DEFEAT AIR BAGS OR DIE.
3: and the steps stated. Body chapter, page 156./

gain acess to the combo switch, find the part that is loose
correct that, and find the short to the horn
try to do so and not damage the clock spring,
working this area of any car, FSM free, is asking for trouble.
danger
and very expensive broken parts by not following procedures to the letter.

SOURCE: Service 4 Wheel Drive Switch

this seems to be because either the connection to the solenoid is loose or faulty or the solenoid is not activating. the transmission control module sends a signal to the solenoid to activate it. you get the light because the ecm detected that there is a a problem with the circuit. this is due to the fact that there is a voltage value to the solenoid and it is out of operating parameters

SOURCE: Where do I find the horn switch on 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

 You should check to see if you have power at the horn first. If you do, you need a new horn. I believe there is also a relay involved. Sometimes these are interchangable. You can take a relay like the one for the A/C and swap it with the horn one and see if the horn works. That will at least eliminate the relay.

SOURCE: turn signals blinking fast and stop when brakes applied

likely not, but change /check anyhow....If problem persists, likely you will need to change the module that controls directionals (usually under dash to the right of steering column)

No brake light,no turn signals , no flasher lights...I have checked fuses for each and they are OK. Also all bulbs are OK. Any suggestions.


Hi!!
Your multifunction switch may be defective. Replace it. $39.99 at AutoZone
  • Combination switches operate wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmers.
  • When not replaced, wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmer, independently or as a group, will not function or turn off potentially causing safety issues.

2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT multifunction switch problem?


The multi function switch is the turn signal switch. It also does control wipers and lighting. If you are having the issues you describe then you will most likely have a body control module problem. Before you spend the money to buy the module and get it programed get it checked first. Goot Luck

Dash and shifter lights in 1996 jeep cherokee wont light


Hello and welcome to FixYa . Locate the dial that controls the brightness of the dashboardlights. If the control is not immediately evident. Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse. Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights Replace the fuse if necessary. If just one part of the instrument panel is not lighting up, then you have either a burned-out bulb or a wiring problem.

2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo


The lights are designed to come on when you activate the wipers, this is because most often, state law dictates that you turn your lights on while driving in the rain, no matter the time of day.  This way you don't have to remember to turn them on. The turn signal switch is a multifunction switch which is comprised of the headlights, wipers, turn signals and all the other stuff that is controlled via the stalks and switches that are mounted on the steering column, you can check with your local auto parts store to see if they can get the assembly from an aftermarket source, this will be cheaper than the dealer.  Also you can check eBay for new and used ones.  Get a part number by calling the dealer about the part and see whats available online.  Also Chryslerpartsdirect.com is an online site that sells direct from the dealer but at a deep discount, the parts are mailed to you.  Best of luck!
