Question about 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Open Question

The dashboard lights and headlights on my Jeep Grand Cherokee flicker on and off. When my headlights go out, I have to turn them on and off which usually works but recently the problem has got much worse and when my headlights go out, sometimes they wont come back on at all and I find myself driving with no headlights. Any suggestions on what could be the problem?

The headlights are on a relay and maybe its getting weak. I would have it checked and replaced because it could go out and stay out.
God Bless Greg
Oh yeah most of the time it is built into the head light switch.

SOURCE: How to replace headlights on 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

One long bolt at the top - requires a 7mm socket to remove the bolt. The light housing will pry out with a screw driver. There are three ball and socket type connectors that hold the housing in and I just pryed off the plastic housing carefully and "balls" pop out of the sockets. Finally, I was replacing the faded plastic housing and it came with a new wiring harness. It's impossible to reach the connector to use the new wiring harness that comes with the new plastic light housing. So just use the existing wiring harness with the new light assembly.

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?

My headlights and dash lights flicker and now my wipers dont work


If the car cranks well then might have a loose connection to dashboard or a bad ground. I don't think this is much help but might be a starting place.

I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee. For at least the past 9 months, the headlights and dash lights will flicker and go out. I have to either click to high beams or turn lights off completely and back on...


The flickering lights and dash lights on a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee is caused by the Steering Control Module and the Light switch stalk being bad. One being bad will cause the other to go bad. I had the same thing 3 months out of warranty. By talking with Jeep Customer Service in Detroit, they agreed to cover parts, and I paid labor. Total bill for parts and labor would have been over $900.!

Had a similar problem with my 01. It was the turn signal toggle. I replaced it with one that I got from a junk yard for about $45. It was really simple to replace, just pop off the collar around the steering wheel and the toggle is held in but 2 screws and a connector. Hope this helps.

Head lights and dashboard lights come on and off


This is usually a sign of the battery wires not connected completely or the ground has become frayed and needs to be replaced.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited 4.7 speedometer flips around when headlights are on bad, and rarely when they are not on.


Sounds like a "bad" earth on the dash head unit. Also check enging to chassis earths, gearbox to chassis, battery to chassis etc.
