Generally there is a multi-function switch underneath the steering wheel. you must remove the steering wheel which requires a special tool, and some expert training to keep the airbag intact. you replace the switch and reinstall the steering wheel. not user serviceable issue.

Have my steering column on 2001 Jeep Cherokee sport opened up to replace hazard/turn signal flasher block. Cant find its location. Have already changed out turn signal switch assembly.

On the switch you just replaced, trace the RED/WHT and VIO/TAN wires toward the front of your Sport and they will connect to the combination flasher. It has BLK and BLK/PNK wires connected to it.

Speedometer works but odometer does not on my 96 jeep Cherokee sport.

Generally its something inside the speedo cluster. You can try to replace it with a used cluster or send it out to have it repaired.
The dealer may have a list of shops qualified to rebuild Jeep clusters.

My 96 jeep cherokee runs fine. But My stereo, wipers, and heater only work when the key is turned back. When I start the jeep or even have key in on position it doesn't work.

Hi, you'll need a new ignition switch. The part is $34 at autozone. If you have a steering wheel puller and a decent set of tools (including torx drivers), you can do it yourself. I can send instructions. Just tell me if you have an airbag on the steering wheel, as the instructions are different in that case.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Wheels will not turn when steering wheels are turned

Pretty doubtful it is your steering column. When all the junk around it is stripped away, it is a simple steel shaft that connects the steering wheel to the steering box.
You can do what no one online can do for you...Have someone turn the wheel and look at what is moving and what is not. Likely it's something major like the steering box or the chassis where the box is mounted that has failed. Whatever it turns out to be, it's likely to be obviously broken. (easier to find than a squeak or slight noise.
When you find it, ask if you need help with the repair procedure!!!
Good luck!!

It could be your clock sensor, or (Also known as) steering squib, it is located in the steering wheel, it can also cause intermittent air bag light warning, cruise control, radio control malfunction of steering wheel controls. It can also cause the horn not to work. If you have any of the other symptoms I would suggest this is your problem.

Turn Signals Won't Work 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee

hi roberto
its probably the small copper contacts in the plastic unit that encompasses the steering column this can be purchased and refitted quite easily by removing the steering wheel,removing the securing screws unplugging the electrical loom plug and slipping over the steering column. replace new unit in reverse . probably caused by over-exadurated movement of the signalling lever
