Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

I bought a 96 jeep cherokee sport & the interior lights only come on for the front passenger door. the three other doors & the hatch dont turn on the interior lights & i cant find any fuse box diagram anywhere to check the fuses. there are some fuses missing & theres no way to tell what amperage fuses go where or even what theyre for. also, the radio clock works but the radio doesnt (its a stock radio). could this be related to the interior lights & how can i fix it?

Can you turn on the lights with the Interior light switch?. If a light works, obviously the fuse is good. You will need a wiring diagram and a test light to figure out where to start.

1996 jeep grand cherokee no automatic interior lights


1. If you have the light switch in the wrong mode the lights will not operate when you open the door.

2. If the interior lights do not operate at all (ie you cannot switch them on and off manually)then you need to check the fuse for the interior lights.

3. When set to the correct mode, the interior lights will operate from a door operated switch so if the switch has failed the lights will either stay on or not operate at all when you open and close the door. Eventually these door switches fail with repeated use and need to be replaced. (Consider how many times the small door switch has been operated since 1996).

I bought my 1996 jeep grand cherokee laredo used and the hatch hasnt opened since i bought it, how do i get it to open? we tried using WD 40 to oil up the locking mechanism but that would not work either.


its possible you dont have the right key. some vehicles were made with a valet feature, door key only works the door and ignition switch but not hatch

Interior light stay on


Check all door ajar switches on each door & tailgate & hatch. To disable each switch unscrew each switch seperately & unplug light goes out proves which switch is bad. Start with front doors then tailgate then rear doors. Goes by how many times that you really use each seperate door.

Jeep 2001 Cherokee Sport Rear Passenger door was hit. Lights will not go out.


Can you open the door? Most likely the door is not making (enough) contact with the plunger which shuts off the lights. If you can get to this plunger, until you get the door fixed, either tape the plunger to the "in" position, or tape something to the door itself to close the gap between the door and the plunger to make the plunger go in. I have had to use quarters (25cents) and duck tape until more permanent repasirs could be made.
Also: there should be on your dash: panel and interior light dimmer/turn off switch. You can turn this/set this so the interior lights do not come on at all.

Rear hatch will not open


Fixed this last week in my Cherokee Classic. I started by releasing the hatch catch from the the interior by manually placing a flat screwdriver (something flat) under the catch, pulling the door inward, and letting the hatch open. From here unscrew all screws around the interior panel including the 2 screws under the rubber caps that mount the interior pull handle. Then carefully pull the panel, one section at a time, (carefully...this plastic is cheap) until all panel clips are free and the panel is removed. At this point you will see the inner mechanics of your door latch. Pushing your key fob lock you will see what you have been hearing, and lifting the outside handle you will see what it is supposed to be doing. As you sit in the interior of the car and face the inside of the hatch door, on the drivers side of the latch mechanism you will see a small threaded rod that is attached to the latch mechanism and the catch on the bottom of the door. This threaded rod must be adjusted/returned to the proper setting in order to lift the door catch. This entire mechanism is so cheaply made that you could have something broken in it also....but after finding the aforementioned adjustment mechanism, I realized that it would not take much for this part to self destruct. Hope this helps!

Interior lights


actually the problem is the switches for the doors and hatch get worn. the switch inside that sets the chime and dome lights. Open the door and look for the switch where the door meets the fender by the hinges. push each one in with your thumb. They should offer some resistance. and when you let go the button should come out back to original position. Check them all. even the hatch. look for any water or corrosion (green wires/ oxidized copper). Do one door at a time. I am thinking that seeing that it just started it is not a feature. But it may be a loose spring inside and eventually makes contact and shuts off.

99 Jeep grand cherokee...interior lights, door locks, pwr windows


The wires that go into the doors has probably broken from opening and closing the doors.They run though a rubber boot where the hinges are. Check all the doors wires. This is a common problem and i have fix many jeeps with these problems.

1994 jeep cherokee sport, rear dome light will not come on when hatchback is opened. Works fine if I switch on all dome lights (front & rear) via turning headlight switch. I am assuming there is some...


Look for a button like thing sticking out of frame where door closes, or even on door frame for same. May even look like a wedge shaped black button, spring loaded, try moving it to see. That will be your switch that turns on the light when open.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Electrical problem


You may want to have the wiring harness inspected. A major section under the fuse box(hood on 96 GC 4.0) may become chafed by a close proximity AC gas hose connector. My mechanic said it was slowly chewing at the harness. It caused me fuel pump problems, but your intermittant problem could be similar.
