I retract my entire solution, having not read correctly your situation. You may simply have lost a body ground wire.????

2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4x4 Light Problem


You checked to make sure you didn't blow all the bulbs at once?
If your front park lights work, then the headlight switch is probably alright.
You may have a taillight relay in your fusebox. Check the owner's manual. It may show it.

Headlights have not turned on when i hit the switch, checked the fuses and wires, I have also replaced both bulbs in the last month, do i have a short somewhere?


I just had this problem, I was going to replace the on/off switch in dash, I took it out and cleaned the "prongs" put it back in and the headlights came on. If your parking lights work, it's the switch.

Tailights only work on directional and brakes ,no running lights


Usely dash lights and taillights are on the same fuse, if you don't have dash lights you won't have tailights. If you got dash lights than you could have blown bulbs or maybe a bad headlight switch.

I have a 97 jeep wrangler. the headlights wont turn on. all other light work fine. the fuse is also fine


Try a couple things if you haven't tried already.

First try replacing the bulbs (sometimes the most obvious answer is the right one, and not meant to offend you).

Then, try replacing the headlight relay (found in the fuse box and looks like a small black cube that plugs in similar to a fuse with some extra prongs).

Then, try replacing the headlight switch.

Finally, while inspecting the headlight switch, make sure the wires are connected and not broken, worn out, or corroded. Same thing with the wires connecting the headlights.

Let me know if this helped you out.

1998 Jeep Wrangler TJ Headlights working intermittently


I have a 97 TJ and the headlights wouldn't come on but the parking lights would. Funny thing was that if I pulled the brights to flash someone, the brights would work. I took out the old headlight switch ($26 at Checker) and they work again. When I pulled the switch there was one connector that seemed to be corroded. Hope this helps

Headlights and dash light dont work


You would have to check and see if you are getting any power out of the light switch. There is a seperate wire for the headlights and the dash lights.
