Blor fan is not working in my 1996 jeep cherokee

So you're getting heat, but the blower fan itself is not working (hot air comes from open vents, but not "forcefully blown in" from the fan? Were you hearing any squealing noises when the fan was on, before it quit working? If so, your fan motor is probably dead. It could also be the fan switch, or a fuse or relay. in the circuit.

My Jeep Grand Cherokee fail to engage the 4 wheel system. The front wheels doesn't working. I can hear a noise but nothing happens. Why?

Maybe the transfer case that sends power to the front wheels is bad. Only way to know for sure what's wrong is to have it checked out.

Creepy flashing lights

Check the adjustment of the rear hatch. As you turn the car body flexes and if the rear hatch is not adjusted correctly the interior lights will come on.
As for the sunroof, without proper diagnose I can only guess (motor, relay, fuse ).

My 1998 jeep grand cherokee sunroof was working fine, until sunday now the sunroof in open from the rear and will not close. All I hear is a clicking sound overhead

It is the relay switch but there's a workaround and you don't have to spend 800 bucks plus. You can take down part of the headliner and replace the relay switch or, if you want to avoid spending the money, you can simply disable the sunroof - after all - who uses it? You can a.) pull the headliner driver side to get to the rear relay/motor and reverse polarity (the connector) as long as you have the front top console plug jumpered to open/close the sunroof or b.) get to the rear relay without totally dissaembling your car and replace the relay in about 2 hours and after spending about $180 for the part.
