You can find the fuse but you probably need to change the switch itself. When this progresses it may come to the point of cutting out the lights altogether. This happened a lot in the 80's chrysler vehicles. It is cheap and easy to change out the light switch. Good luck.

Having problems locating the radiator fan relay in my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7L V8. Does not seem to be located where every post says it should be... ???

this is a tough one, this relay is behind the right front headlight, a shortcut i do is to remove the headlight and use a hole saw and make a 3inch hole in the fiberglass behind the light, then look and you will find relay, the other way is to remove the fuebox the battery and the battery tray then look way in toward the rear of the headlight and you will see the relay, its not a regular looking relay its a module type,heres a picture to help you and its held in by two 8mm head bolts that are almost impossible to remove or install unless you do it my way with the hole,hope this helps.36fb6c6.jpg

1997 jeep cherokee headlights quit working at the same time and will not come back on.

check the position of the automatic headlights switch. If it is placed in the auto position and the road becomes lit then the lights will go off automatically. Before condemning the switch try placing in it on the other positions. If the switch works fine, try checking the headlights relay, there are two relays (one is for the automatic headlights)

Headlights go out and turn back on while driving.

Try checking the connection on the relay. and make sure that it has good contact, and clean.

Headlites go off and on on a 88 cherokee

Sounds like you have a bad relay. The headlight relay is located by the fuse block. You will hear it click on and off as this problem occurs. When you think you have found the correct relay it will more than likely be hot to the touch indication it is bad.
