If you go to www.remcotowing.com it will give you the answer but I think you'll need a trailer.

SOURCE: THE HEADLAMPS OR TAILIGHTS ON AN 1983 JEEP CJ-7

First, get out the ol' volt ohmmeter. Check the bulbs for continuity, check the sockets for power and good ground. check fuses. check the switch, check relays. Your vehicle does not have any"mysterious"modules...power needs to get to the switch, then through the wiring to the bulbs. armed with your meter and perhaps a test-light, you can easily trace both ways from the switch to the power source and the bulbs. Only thing you need is time and a bit of patience.

Review this information and links:
- Trailer 4 Way System Diagram
- Accesories and Instructions

Instructions
1.) Determine a suitable location for mounting the circuit protected converter in an out of the way spot near the left tail lights in the trunk or on the frame rail, if mounted under the towing vehicle.
2.) Ground the white ground wire by placing the ring terminal under an existing screw attached to a clean metal surface or by drilling another 3/32" hole and using one of the self tapping screws provided.
3.) Disconnect the tow vehicle's negative (-) battery cable.
4.) Cut the in-line fuse holder loop wiring.
5.) Using a ring terminal (3/8 inch for top terminal or 1/2 inch for side terminal), attach an in-line fuse holder (with fuse removed) to the positive (+) terminal of the battery.
6.) Route black 12 gauge wire from the fuse holder to the converter passing under or through the vehicle.
Note: When passing the wire through sheet metal always go through an existing grommet, add a grommet or use silicone rubber to insulate the wire from the hole.
7.) Attach 12 gauge wire to the fuse holder with the yellow **** connector.
8.) Reconnect the tow vehicle (-) negative battery cable. Note: See tow vehicle owners manual for any special battery reconnection and instructions.
9.) Determine if the towing vehicle has a 2 wire or 3 wire system.

2 Wire System

  • Has same bulb for stop and turn signals.
  • Some vehicles have a separate bulb for stoplights but also have a combination bulb for turn and stop. These cars should be wired as 2 wire systems, using the wires going to the common bulbs.
  • Note: Attach the crimp on spade terminal provided to the red stop wire and ground it along with the white wire.

3 Wire System
  • Has amber turn signals, separate.
  • Has separate bulbs for stop and turn signals (both red).
  • Note: Attach red wire to tow vehicles brake light circuit.
10.) Using a circuit tester or volt ohm meter (VOM), determine which wire attached to the left taillight assembly is the left turn wire. Attach the units yellow left turn wire to this wire using one of the blue wire taps provided. Determine which wire is the taillight circuit and attach the module's brown tail / license wire to it with a wire tap. Determine which wire is the stop circuit and attach the module's red stop wire to it with a wire tap (for 3 wire systems only, see step 9).
11.) Route the units green right turn wire to the right side of the vehicle. Determine which wire is the right turn circuit and attach the green wire to it with a wire tap.
12.) Install the fuse into fuse holder and test the installation with a circuit light or trailer.
13.) Secure all loose wiring with cable ties.

Testing Procedure
With the ground wire connected and all of the other circuits attached, attach the ground lead of a circuit tester to the exposed ground terminal of the 4-flat end. Activate the tow vehicle left turn, right turn, tail and stop lights one at a time. Probe the three receptacles of the 4-flat end to confirm proper functions. If testing with a trailer, make the proper connections and do the same test as the circuit tester using the trailer lights. If a function on the trailer lights does not work properly, disconnect the trailer lights, turn functions on vehicle off and recheck function with the unit with a circuit tester. Then check the trailer wiring for potential circuit problems.

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help).

Good luck.

SOURCE: how do i replace the passanger side window regulator on a 1983 cj

You will have to take the door panel off. Roll the window down/up about 1/2 way. Look at the channel were the bottom of the glass sits. There are most likely a couple of screws, 1 near each end. Loosen them up and remove the glass by holding on to it while lowering the assembly all the way (crank it down. Tilt one end up and lower the other. Glass should come out of the track. Reverse to replace the new glass.

How do you disassemble a steering lock on a 2005 Jeep Wrangler I have had a problem with it locking up even with the key on the off pos... I'M RV towing it.(etc)


ok redux:
your towing the veh. not driving it.
big difference there....
if the steering locks (if first unlocked)
with key in OFF or in run )
the key switch is bad and car too dangerous to drive. It must not lock, imagine a car fire.
and you cant cut electrical to off. imagine.


NOw FAT TOW, (one end up tows, are *******)
so of all the ways tow a veh, which one.???
flat tow.?? (just did that 1000 miles on XJ)
dolly tow.?

each has different rules.

the key lock is to prevent theft towing , with no key.(in possession)
that is its purpose.
What drive line,????
2wd or 4wd
what transmission , a/t or stick?
i cant guess your driveline nor tow mode and both matter.


http://rv-roadtrips.thefuntimesguide.com/2007/05/tow_jeep_wrangler_unlimited.php

but one example.. above. hope i guessed your driveline.
some are even 2wd. !
lots of drivelines,,, engine /trans, and 2wd/.4wd
and rules for not burning up rear bearings in all transmissions. (on a/t box the pump is dead. so..)

i do see a mistakes in the book.
step one page 232. (in glove box book)
it should say, insert key and get the steering unlocked first.
if stuck?, get front tires off the curb, or out a pit in road. or off a huge rock, to release the parking steering lock.
lock #1 is in the A/T box, and is a problem child #2.
same with a/t box. the park can lock up same way
the lock sticks.
if car parked say down hill, and driver used park lock, before the hand brake,...
ask folks in San Francisco about that.?
I took my military driving test there... fun !

i think i posted all ways to mess this up.

1998 jeep wrangler starting issues


Hi Dava224 i had the same problem with my 1989 CJ. when it was cold out i would pump the gas pedal 3-4 times before turning the ignition. it puts a small amount of fuel in the motor without stalling it out. it wont start as hard. another good idea is to keep some fuel stabalizer in the tank everytime you fill up. hope this helps
