1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0L When I'm stopped at


My guess would be a problem with the turn signal switch.
Unless there is a short in one of the bulb sockets and the parking lights are flashing too.

On my 98 jeep cherokee when connecting the tailgate replace kit I accidentally touch the yellow left turn wire, with the brown tail light wire. As result my left side on the 4 way exterior dim lights no...


If it happened the way you described it. I don't see how it could possibly have damaged anything. I guess what you are saying is that the left tail lights are not working? ("4 way exterior dim lights"???) Touching the tail light wire to the turn signal wire will only cause your turn signals to light up. (I am assuming that the tail light switch was on at the time)
I think it is more likely that the brown wire touched ground. This would make a bright flash, blow a fuse and cause the symptom you are describing...I think you need to check the fuse again.
There are separate fuses for the left and right sides. The left side tail lamp fuse is fuse #7 in the junction block it is a 10 Amp fuse. The junction block is located on the right cowl side inner panel - We are NOT talking about the Power Distribution Center under the hood.

All of the above is also assuming that we are talking about a plain Cherokee, Cherokee SE, Cherokee classic or Cherokee Limited.

If we are talking about any of the Grand Cherokees, you may have a fried lamp outage module.

I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4. The check engine light came on a little bit ago, and ever since then it's had problems shifting out of first gear. I'll be running 4000 rpm for miles before it...


it is most likley the throttle position sensor"mine wouldn't shift into 5th gear because of it" if it bad or worn out it not sending the correct signal to the computer telling the transmission to shift out. before you get lied to by the auto parts stores diagnostics.turn the ignition on with out cranking the vehicle turn it on off on off and on if the check engine light starts flashing count the flashes .say it flashes two times then pauses then flashes three more times then stops that would be fault code 23 you can look it up on the internet or buy a haynes repair manual in your case if it flashes 2 times then pauses then flashes 4 more times it is the throttle position sensor

Rear light failure?


Hey, my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee did the same thing and it took me a long time to find a solution. It turned out, at least in my case, that there was a burnt out bulb just above the license plate. When I replaced it the warning went away.

Dashboard brake light stays on, 1990 Suburban


Most likely. Usually what happens to mine, is the wires to the sensors get broken from stones hitting them. i splice them back together and they are good for a while. Or the sensors get dirty.
