Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee

Open Question

All lights except turn signals went out in 84 jeep cherokee

Everything was working fine except my dash lights (behind the instument pannel) i found that the problem was a loose wire splice. so i re-spliced the wires and got the dash lights on. after i started the jeep i had no lights at all except my turn signals (front and back work) no headlights, dash lights, hazard lights, not even my glovebox light. any ideas what i can look for??

Hi, i have a grand cherokee 5,7 from 2006. The lights in the instrument panel, and the exterior lights keep flashing when the engine in turned on. I cannot adjust the lights in the instument panel neither....

I have a similar problem - every once in a while all of my dash lights flash on like the car is trying to conk out/stall (I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee) - the car has no loss of power and runs fine, just all of the dashboard lights and warnings come on like its going to stall. Happens on dry days, wet days, cold days, warm days - at least 3 times a month. trouble is, because its intermittent no one can find the problem.

Troubleshooting tail light assembly issues in my Jeep

Check fuse panel, under dash, as well as under hood. Owners manual should also give you map of fuses. May say"park" lights, "running lights", or something similar.

2000 XJ dash lights

From your description it would appear you have an intermittent short to ground on the dash light power circuit.
It may be as simple as wire insulation being cut on a sharp metal edge, or the supply being shorted by a loose metallic object (such as a nut or washer) in a connected assembly.
Check any external wiring for damage - such as connection to foglights etc.
There is no easy fix here -just persistence.
