Question about 1989 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

I have 89 jeep cherokee the lights turn on except for the tail lights. Then it blows the 30 amp fuse for the gauges. But the lights still work. Except for the tail lights. Do you think is the switch for the head lights that can cause this issue?

Sounds more like a short (joined) circuit, probably at the tail lights since they never work. look for melted or damaged wires back there. had any work done back there recently (maybe for towing lights?)

Fuse keeps blowing dash lights and tail lights dont work jeep cherokee sport 1999


There are several fuses involved. I need to know which one(s). As for the taillights, the primary power source is 20A fuse 17 in the power distribution center. The tan/blk wire connects to the headlamp switch which, in park position, applies +12 volts through 10A fuse 7 in the junction block to the left tail light. The headlamp switch, in park position, also apples +12 volts through 10A fuse 23 in the junction block to the right tail light.

I need to know which fuse is blowing the instrument lights so you will have to follow up

I have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited i have brake lights that work when i apply brakes, but as as soon as i turn my headlights on the fuse blows and i have no working tailights with the headlights on. ...


There is definitely a short in the park lights system. Did you just have a radio installed....since the illumination wire sometimes gets grounded and will cause that fuse to blow until you fix that wire.

Checked fuses, dash lights don't work, gauges do work, tail lights don't work, turn signals work and brake lights work.head lights work but no running lights except when using turn signal. help.


take out the plastic panel on the drivers side in the cargo area. tucked inside the body where the taillight wiring is you will find about 6 to 8 wiring plugs. disconect all of them (dont forget to mark them as you disconnect each one. put in a new fuse and turn on the ignition. start connecting them one by one, you will hear the fuse blow when you connect the one thats bad. it should be either the rear window defroster or the rear wiper. it may sound like a lot of work, but it's pretty simple. hope that works it did for me.

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.

Troubleshooting tail light assembly issues in my Jeep


Check fuse panel, under dash, as well as under hood. Owners manual should also give you map of fuses. May say"park" lights, "running lights", or something similar.

1998 Jeep Cherokee blown fuse


Hello There

15 Amp sounds too small. It should be around 25 -30 Amp. You need to double check the size of fuse needed.

Hope this helps.
