Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
My 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't hold a charge on the battery. I just replaced the alternator and put in a new battery. The #21 fuse which is Security Module/Lamp Outage Module keep blowing in the fuse box no matter what I do. I got hit by another truck that knocked out my passenger side headlight, and I think that it may be draining the battery when the car is on, but I don't know for sure. What do you think the problem could be? When I replaced the battery the first time, I also accidentally hooked it up backwards as far as positive and negative go. It blew out a bunch of stuff. Do you think the battery gauge in the instrument panel is broken possibly as it only goes up about a quarter of the way?
This happened to me once, but that guy that put my battery in crossed the wires and blew a bunch of fuses. I thought it was my alternator but it wasn't. I removed it and tested it, it was fine. Make sure you double check before buying expensive things. Anyways, it was just a fuse, I can't be sure which one it was exactly but I replaced 3 of them. Two #60 fuses (which I'm assuming were the problem because they were fuses for the alternator) and another one that I can't remember now. Anyways, if your having a problem like this replace all your fuses first, all of them together would only cost about 15 bucks. If the problem persist remove your alternator to test it because you'll get a more accurate reading this way. If its not your alternator or fuses, I don't know.

Concerning Guest problem. I had this happen to me when I reconnected the battery after doing some other work on the car. You can use your key and unlock the rear hatch to overide this. This also works if you set off the alarm and did not have the remote handy.

If you connected the battery in the wrong way you may have damaged the new battery, find a different one for testing purposes. If the battery and alternator are ok, and battery drains out only explanation is a short in the electric circuit, in this case you should have additional problems of some kind. Before working on your car buy Cherokee Haynes manual, for example on ebay. DIY with not enough knowledge can damage the car and make it unsafe.
