Question about 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Blown fuse 2002 grand cherokee, i am experiencing a problem with the 10 amp fuse that controls my turn signals, blowing everytime i replace it. Once i replace a new fuse in the panel its ok until I turn on car then it blows. Sometimes I can get lucky enough for a fuse to hold for about a week or two before it blows again. I've taken it to two different Auto Electric places. Each telling me all they had to do was replace the fuse. When I get it back not even a week later it blows again.

Probably a shorting out directional lamp socket. May be the intermittent problem you're having. It's like taking a kid to the doctor's...They always get better before actually SEEING the doc...If one of the directional housing seals are bad, it may have allowed the socket to corrode enough to ground to power. Check the fronts first.

I have replaced....several times.... the 15amp fuse for my turn signal and overhead console read out and they continue to blow. All other lights continue to work, even the flashers, head lamps, and break...

When a fuse blows you have 2 choices

Replace it once or just go to the wiring
diagrams & start diagnosing & testing,
until you find the cause of the electrical
system problem causing the high current

You need to know what is on that fused circuit

Unplug the overhead console. If the problem
goes away, you know the console needs to
be checked out. Or you work on the signal

You wouldn't go on a road trip without
a map,if you never been there before !!

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee and both tailights do not work. The back turn signals do work. Is it a fuse or the bulbs? If it is a blown fuse, which fuse would I need to get to replace the blown...

could be a fuse or bulb look in your manual that came with your vehicle or when you pull down the cover it could also show which one to pull when you pull it if its not busted or burnt out then possible of your bulbs but for both to go out at once then probaly gonna be your fuse and which ever fuse you pull would be the exact size to put back in that location

Turn signals on my 2004 jeep don't work what to

If one of your bulbs has blown you will get a faster relay click when you activate the indicators. It sounds as though the relay itself could be sticking / broken.

Of course it could just be a blown fuse, I would check that first before changing relays

Fuse blown need to know which fuse controls the radio

when you pull the fuse panel cover it has a diagram that tells you which one. Also you can just look at the fuses, if its blown you just replace it. I would also check your ground going to the radio, they usually don't blow unless you have added a amp or something not designed for the vehicle, you probably need to increase the ground size cable.

Fuse keeps blowing on 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Your fan seems to be drawing way too much current, common with fan motors of all kinds when they are going bad. It will still blow, but hot wires and blown fuses in the normal circuit indicate you have an excessive load in the circuit. Fan motors create this condition regularly, but are often ignored since they are "still blowing."

Here's a cheap, easy way to test my theory:
Try a new fuse, the proper amperage, but leave the blower motor unplugged at the blower itself. That will tell you in a few rides if the blower was the culprit. (Which it most likely is.) I bet your #20 fuse will stop blowing and no more smoking pink wires! Hope this helps. Remember, blower motors are cheap, traffic tickets and dash fires are not. The blower motor draw is the logical thing wrong with this picture. Good LUCK! TT
