Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Interior light / back up warning lights

I recently purchased a loaded 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. 2 Questions? When you get into the car is the interior light suppose to come on and stay on until you start the car? I had a 2000 Jeep Cherokee that had the lights come on when you opened the car door. If so, is this an automatic feature or do I have to set some control for this option?

Also, the back up warning lights above the rear view mirror are not working. Could this be an easy fix? Thanks for your help. Mike

1996 jeep grand cherokee no automatic interior lights


1. If you have the light switch in the wrong mode the lights will not operate when you open the door.

2. If the interior lights do not operate at all (ie you cannot switch them on and off manually)then you need to check the fuse for the interior lights.

3. When set to the correct mode, the interior lights will operate from a door operated switch so if the switch has failed the lights will either stay on or not operate at all when you open and close the door. Eventually these door switches fail with repeated use and need to be replaced. (Consider how many times the small door switch has been operated since 1996).

Airbag and seatbelt light stay on in 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The lights randomly came on for no reason.


Just recently, I inadvertently removed the yellow doohickey that holds the 2 x 10 amp fuses in the interior fuse bank of my 2002 WJ Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I checked the fuses and they were ok so I inserted the fuse holder back in.. Low and behold the seatbelt and airbag light came on and stayed on. After several quick fixes etc to get the lights to go out, I finally returned to the fuse holder and discovered that A. You need to squeeze in the tabs to get the fuse holder out and B. the fuse holder when being re-inserted will not automatically clip in... you have to squeeze the tabs again to press the fuse holder fully home. I started the old girl up again and no more lights.

'93 Jeep Gr. Cherokee 4x4 switch warning


this switch does not switch the vehicle from 2 wheel to 4 wheel drive. Grand cherokee have a manual shifter for that. The 4x4 switch is on top of the transfer case and tells the driver information display what 4 wheel drive mode the Jeep is in. ex..if you have selectrac, in 2 wheel the rear wheels on the display will light up, in 4 wheel all 4 wheels will light up, in 4 wheel low it will have the word low lit up in yellow. This is the only purpose for this switch and a bad one will not affect the functioning of the 4 wheel drive. Check out Rockauto.com and a new one can be purchased for about 35 dollars. If you call the dealership and ask for a 4 wheel drive switch, they will have no clue what you are talking about. The actual name is " 4WD indicator light switch"
