Everything is fused... you could be shorted to ground somewhere... trace wiring if you can and look for signs of burning... these circuits appear to be fused seperately... check for fusible links from battery to fuseblock

Yes it could be but more likely its one of the main fuses for the ignition. If the charging and oil light's come on when its switched on then the ignition switch should be ok

Sounds like you need a new ignition switch. It is either attached to the key cylinder or down towards the bottom of the column, under the dash. It may just be loose, or needs adjusting.

88 Jeep Cherokee problems


That happen to me 3 days ago. The problem is on the ignition key. When you turn it to start the engine, once the engine starts, turn it back a little. is suppose to get back by itself but, get stuck because the cold weather.

Heater, wipers,and radio


Likely you have a bad ignition switch AND, the radio probably was wired into the headlamp circut, Move the radio hot lead to an "acc" port on the fuseblock.

Left turn signal works sometimes and somtimes does not work.


I have/had a similiar problem with mine. My 94 Cherokee's radio would cut out, the wipers wouldn't come on, the climate controls would die, and the cigarette lighter would not work. This happened at any time. So knowing nothing about auto electrical, I took it in and the guy took all of five minutes to diagnose the problem as the ignition switch.
