You have 2 fuses on the radio. There are also two fuses in the fuse panel one would be marked ignition and the other one memory or lighter clock combination. Please check these first

A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if answer is helpful for your question. THANK you and GOD BLESS

SOURCE: 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee only blows heat and ac out of dashboard

There is a vacuum leak under the hood. If it's a 6 cylinder, look on the drivers side for a vacuum line that runs vertical with a 90 degree angle fitting to the manifold. That one usually comes off. If it is a V8 look on the battery side for a broken or corroded vacuum line.

No sound how do icheck amp1994 jeep cherkee

Is your stereo OEM (factory installed) or aftermarket? If OEM, is there any hum or static? Can you change frequencies or bands? Is it a digital display or analog tuning bar? If aftermarket, same questions, plus are your connections on the back of he head unit properly mated? Are the speakers factory or aftermarket? As you can see, there are several possibilities. Answering these questions will narrow down the list of possible problems.

What size speakers are in the doors on a 1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo

  • The factory speakers are 6x9 BUT the magnet on the factory speakers are much smaller than on aftermarket, higher quality 6X9 speaker making it almost certain the window will not roll down after installing an aftermarket 6X9.

  • Most go with a 6X5 because they are a bit smaller and there is a wider variety of them. Where ever you go to purchase that speaker. make sure the measurements are taking real well if going with another 6x9. There is always the option of the factory 6x9 but a nice aftermarket will fit in there so long as you mind the size.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

How do you take of the dash paneling to install a new aftermarket cd player?

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable from the Jeep Cherokee battery with the 10 mm wrench.
  • 2 Remove the five screws on the top edge of the dash panel with a Phillips-head screwdriver.
  • 3 Pry the trim panels surrounding the climate control knobs away from the dashboard with the trim panel removal tool.
  • 4 Remove the trim panel that surrounds the headlamp switches (located to the left of the steering column) with a trim panel removal tool.
  • 5 Remove the two screws behind the trim panel that surrounds the headlamp controls with a Phillips-head screwdriver.
  • 6 Pull the dash panel that surrounds the stereo and covers the instrument panel of the Cherokee, away from the dashboard by hand.
  • 7 Remove the two screws from the stereo mounting bracket. One screw is on the bottom left corner, the other screw is on the top right corner. Each screw can be removed with the 10 mm socket and drive.
  • 8 Pull the factory stereo from the stereo mounting dock.
  • 9 Disconnect the stereo wiring from the back of the factory unit.

    I tried to install an aftermarket stereo in my 2005 jeep grand cherokee but it didnt work because i had the wrong wiring harness. but when i tried to put the factory stereo back in it wouldnt work either....

    Check that the yellow and the red wires have power while accessories is on, using a test light or multimeter. If they both have power, check earth connection.

    Installing an aftermarket CD player.

    Go to a stereo sales & installation shop, or even auto parts places usually have them now too, and get an adapter harness for your particular vehicle. They plug directly in to your existing harness, then you simply wire your new stereo to it,via directions. Few bucks now, will save hours of aggravation later,.and if you decide to sell vehicle later, and put old one back in, it's all there to plug back in, nice & clean.
