I had the same trouble with my 98 cherokee and found the solution online. There is a circuit board in the domelight that can be unplugged, I haven't got a clue as to the relationship between the two but when I unplugged the circuit board my cluster immediately came back and has worked perfectly since.Hope this helps.

As the person said check the dome light. If that doesn't solve the issue then start look for a bad ground. You will not and probably never need a new cluster. Other ground area's are (1) the battery [there is a ground there and far too often people overlook it...corrosion and simply loose connection...the ground wire I am referring is not the main ground but the little black wire running from the battery usually to the body] (2) make sure all your immediate sensors plug in are tight and (3) what will also case deed issues is the starter.

You may need a new cluster. some grand cherokees use the bcm body control module to control the cluster.

On my 1998 jeep cherokee all 4 gauges plus speedo and rev counter suddenly went dead ,everything else works fine ,what could be the fault please?


Check for bad harness connection Under the dash at the back of instrument cluster housing. Make sure connectors are plugged in completely. Check all fuses located under dash (drivers side) Consult your owners manual for fuse legend.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee with electrical issues: power locks, power windows, dashboard doesnt work, digital info readers dont work, console lights flicker and dim, sometimes inside lights flicker, wh


engine runs perfect?
head lights full power bright>? 2 questions, and shows battery is at 12.6vdc rested and 13.3 to 15vdc running, (is it>?_)
ill pretend yes......
blown fuse. what else could cause so many things, to lose DC power.
>?
a fuse can be good, bad or intermittent , even corroded,
a tech would scratch head and pick the easiest fault to fix.
my guess, is
dashboard doesnt work means the guages , and idiot lamps are dead but the park lamps there (dimmable) do work.
so what fuse is that.? i say to self.....
I open the FSM. and look at the power cluster feed.
what do i see.?

i look in instruments page. (aka. cluster)
tells you how it works
then i jump wiring page 8w-40-2
i see what, Fuse 10. is it good? and fuse 17.
fuse 10 is key on,, and fuse 17, is hot full time.

thats it, if the cluster is dead, only fuses can kill it 100% dead
or it losts its main ground, which is unlikely but voltmeter proves
in 1min flat. (G201)


i picked right, the cluster dead, is the most simple
if Headlights are dead, its most simple (not in Canada with DRL)

bingo?

Where is the fuse for the tail lights for jeep '96 grand cherokee


Unfortunately, could not find owners manual for 1996.

Website only has models 2004-current
=> http://www.jeep.com/en/owners/manuals/index.html

There are two fuse boxes. One under driver compartment usually left to the steering colum. A label is stamp to identify each fuse. I would look at Park Lights and Instrument Cluster fuses. The easy way is to take a flashlight and look at all fuses. If they are all okay. Then just remove the Park Lights and Instrument Cluster fuse and reseat them. The other fuse box is under the hood and near the batter. It also has a label to identify each fuse.
