SOURCE: Need to replace the driver's door interior door opening assembly

Hi there.

The procedure is roughly the same for all mk3 x types.
You need to remove all the screws on the armrest and on the ashtray, then undo all the plastic clips using screwdrivers on the panel.

You find detailed instructions on links below, I quote:

" remove two screws at the bottom of the armrest.
pull out ash tray.
remove screw in the middle of the ash tray holder.
pull up on armrest, it should pop up, then pull it out
start at bottom right of door and start popping out the plastic clips (all the way around the door)
(remove speaker wires)
push up door panel - done"

SOURCE: Interior Door Handle

This was a three minute repair, once I had the replacement handle. Leave the door panel alone! Remove the single screw holding the old handle in place. Use a flat blade screwdriver to jimmy the old handle away from the door about an inch. There are two plastic clips holding it to the rods, one for the locking mechanism and one for the latch. Use the flat blade screwdriver to unclip these two connectors. Remove the broken latch, and don't worry, the rods won't disappear into the door! Reverse these steps with the new handle (insert rods, attach clips, wiggle assembly into place, and fasten with single screw). You're done!

No interior lights come on when doors are opened. Very dim instrument panel lights.


theres probably a switch off to the left of the steering wheel (probably some sort of wheel looking switch for the brightness)

this is the door open light indicator on your instrument panel correct? it thinks the door is open. do interior courtesy lights work? i.e. turn on off when opening doors? check for "normally open" circuit faults in the door switches

My 2002 jeep grand cherokee laredo windows won't go down lights come on and stay on. Then the lights won't come on.


I had the same problem with mine. I have the same year Jeep. The Remote door lock also wouldn't work (Not on drivers door anyway!). Here's what I had found out from a co-worker with same vehicle. The wires in the door that run to the control panel on door for windows has been broken. You probably have several broken wires inside the "Rubber boot" you see when opening the door. You will have to take off the interior door panel, be careful to remove any wires and rod connectors when doing so. Then open the rubber seal. Find where the wires come in to door. Remove boot. Locate broken wires inside the boot section. You will then need to sodder in a 1'-2' wire to extend the broken wire(s). You may also decide to extend the unbroken wires now, just so you might not have to go through all of this again, later. I hope this helps out. I had found out it is a very common Jeep Grand Cherokee problem.

Problem with dual zone heating only one side i check control thermost botton is ok


Sounds like the blend door actuator. It separates the driver and passenger side from getting air on the AZC system. Here are some instructions on replacing it:
The passenger side blend door actuator is used on all models equipped with Automatic Zone Control (AZC). This actuator is located on the front of the HVAC housing to the right of the floor panel transmission tunnel and cannot be removed from the passenger compartment without instrument panel or HVAC housing removal.

NOTE: This procedure is for AZC Systems (Passenger side only).

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. Remove the glove box door. See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim
  3. Remove the lower I/P glove box door surround panel.
  4. Remove the dash assembly. See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim\Dashboard / Instrument Panel\Service and Repair\Instrument Panel Assembly
  5. Remove the HVAC assembly. See: Housing Assembly HVAC\Service and Repair
  6. Unplug the wire harness connector from the blend door actuator.
  7. Remove the 2 screws that secure the blend door actuator to the HVAC housing.
  8. Remove the blend door actuator from the HVAC housing.
INSTALLATION - AZC (Passenger side only)


  1. In stall the blend door actuator on the HVAC housing and tighten the two mounting screws to 2.2 Nm (20 in. lbs.).
  2. Plug in the wire harness connector to the blend door actuator.
  3. In stall the HVAC unit into the vehicle. See: Housing Assembly HVAC\Service and Repair
  4. Install the instrument panel assembly into the vehicle. See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim\Dashboard / Instrument Panel\Service and Repair\Instrument Panel Assembly
  5. Evacuate the HVAC system.
  6. Recharge the HVAC system.
  7. Connect and the battery negative cable.

How do I turn off the interior lights 1998 Jeep Cherokee Limited?


Forget about shutting the lights off...not worth the effort. Besides, the amount of power is not that much, unless you have the doors open all day (why not just open the windows?) If you need to have the doors open all day, get a 2 amp battery charger and attach it while it's open. It will do a lot to keep your electrical system in top charge and you will be doing something good for it!
