Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

After turning the truck off and pulling out the key the interior lights wont go off the dash board lights go out but not the over head lights we have checked everything on the light panel to make sure that nothing has been turned on by mistake. the light staying on is draining the battery.something really weird happened a few nights ago i could not get the key out of the ignition i eventually had to put the truck in neutral and then back in park and it finally releasd the key.about 4 weeks ago i went to start the truck and thebattery was dead and the interior light was on i eventually had to buy a new battery.

If you truck has a convenience timer for the lights that may be the problem. When you exit the truck do your lights normally stay on and then slowly dim or go out? There will be a relay like unit plugged into the fuse panel marked light timer or something like that. Remove it and see, the interior lights should now probably not work at all. Just replace it with a new one or from a salvage yard.

Car wont start


Since this engine is fully electronically controlled the first thing that must be done is to read the fault codes of the engine control computer and check the fuel pressure from the electric pump. You will need an OBD2 system code reader and a fuel pressure test gauge.

If a fuse is blown for your interior lights they will not light at all. the fuse panel is on the driver side end of dash where the door touches the dash board, can only access with the door open and small 7'x6" cover is removed, it pulls off by hand

Dash and parking lights will not come on, on a 1992 towncar


You must check all of your fuses. It's most likely one of those. Dash lights are also controlled by the intensity knob on either your headlight switch or possible near it. It will dim/brighten your radio lights and interior lights too.
