SUPER easy to fix. you shorted out one of the fuses. refer to the owners manual and replace whichever one belongs to that circuit. i know a main circuit box (for the TJ & YJ) is located behind the glove box. might be in the same spot on the cherokee.

gook luck, doesn't sound too back. one thing i have learned with wiring. CHECK the FUSES first. i have my whole dash and ignition column ripped apart when all the problem was, was a blown fuse and a corroded battery post...

cheers

I need a repair manual on replaceing the blower resistor on a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4WD 4.0 6 cyl


Cannot find manual, but looks pretty simple. The resistor is under the dash. Not sure if there are access panels that you have to take off, but should look like picture below. Just unhook connector, take out 2 screws, resistor should come right out.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport Ignition Lights Come on but wont crank


Try putting the car in neutral and starting. If its a manual trans it might be the clutch pedal safety switch or it may be something as simple as a loose battery connection.
