Question about 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

The fuse for the cooling and heating systems keeps blowing when I use the turn signal I have a 2003 Jeep grand cherokee laredo. they must be on the same circuit. the fuse will only blow when I use both the heater and the turn signal at the same time together. could it be a defective flasher?

    after furher observation i found the when i operated the jeep without using the heater and the fuse blew in about 24 hrs using only the turn signal. this i think will rule out the heater/cooling system as a cause of blowing the fuse. could it be a defective flasher or a short in the steering colunm?

I have the same problem and am going to trace wires for shorts-what I am reading is 80% of the time its the flasher module. Keep in mind the emergency flashers will work even though the fuse is blown and flasher module may be faulty. Flasher modules run about $70 on average-so be careful you don't roll the dice on the fix and be out $70. Again-if I cant find visible shorts, I'm replacing the flasher module. Check the internet for discussions on this subject-it is a very common problem with the 03s. Let me know if this was your fix if already repaired. Thanks and/or good luck.

    if you are still having this problem check a wire which is plugged into the oil pan of the transmission on the driver side of the car. in my case this 3 wire plug was shorting out the insulation was gone. when the wire was shorted out the turn signal worked and he heater fuse blew. i fixed the wire and all is working fine the big question is that what does a wire connected to the transmission have to do with the turn signal and heater. if any one has this problem with a jeep grand cherokee check this wire first. the dealer wanted $200-300 to fix it. it cost me lest than $10.00 and a couple days to find the short

The heater is my Jeep is not blowing very warm air. It puts out mild heat at best. I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.

I would recommend flushing the cooling system and replacing the thermostat.....easy to do and only about $14 for a new thermostat.If that does not work then you either have a coolant leak somewhere or a bad heater core. I would also pressure test your cooling system before you flush the system to look for leaks in the system

AC starts blowing cool air then start getting hotter and finally have to turn off, it has been doing it for years. 2003 Grand Cherokee laredo

You either need to add freon or there is a restriction somewhere within the A/C system. Freon recharge is fairly simple and relatively cheap. Simply buy the kit at a parts store (buy one with a gauge so you know when it is full. Make sure there aren't any clogs anywhere under the hood that could cause an airflow problem.

Cooling fan wont turn on

check your fuse to see if its blown. Do you have one or two fans? If you have 2 fans turn your ac on to see if the other fan comes on. If your fuse is good you probably have a bad fan
