Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been having problems with the instrument panel. Sometimes they would flicker off but come back on in a few minutes. Now they stay off and I have been trying to download a wiring diagram but no luck so far.

I hope this helps. My experience with just about all cars is that there is a dimmer that controls
the level of illumination on the instruments. Most that I have seen do flick on and off when set to
full brightness. If you back off the know slightly, the lights will come on. What I am describing happens in the car I now own. Give it a shot and see. It it works it will save you grief.
Let me know what happens,
Best Regards,

I have a 1994 jeep grand cherokee and it always starts up, but sometimes it just shuts off randomly while I'm driving and after a few minutes of rest turns back on, the battery will still be worki

Install a new crank shaft sensor. I had the same problem with my wife's Jeep. It would run fine fore days at a time then quit. When the crank sensor goes out their is no spark or injection of fuel into the engine. This is a Hall Sensor. They can be intermittent, and affected bu heat. If your Jeep will not start, try freeing the sensor and see if it starts. Cold Freeze is used in electronics to test

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. I just replaced the battery about a month ago but lately I have had to jump it to get it started. Sometimes it will start than die. Other times it will act like...

Take it to an auto parts store that will do a diagnostic on the charging system (alternator) and also check that both battery cables are clean and snug at both ends. Sometimes battery cables will corrode inside the plastic insulation so have them checked with an ohm meter.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee speedometer flickers when its raining and the windshield wipers are on also high idle sometimes when its hot.. any ideas?

Sounds like the speedometer cable under the steering inside the column could be loose. Minor adjustment if you know someone that could do this for you, or take it to a mechanic.

Need to find cigarette lighter fuse location

Hello Dona109. According to the owners manual I have for a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it is the Slot 26 fuse in the fuse panel. The fuse panel is on the lower instrument panel just to the left of the steering column.
Here is a quick pic I took, and illustrated so you can see which one needs to be replaced:

Good luck. If you ever have a need for more information about this or any other Jeep vehicle, please let me know. I literally have the 99 Grand Cherokee manual on my lap as I type this. I am very happy to help fellow Jeepers!

I have a 1999 grand jeep it cut off when im

I just had this problem on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Once the engine got warm, after about 15 to 20 minutes, the car would just die at random times, sometimes when doing 40 mph and sometimes at idle.

I ended up changing the Crankshaft Position Sensor and it cleared the issue.

Instrument Panel goes on and off, as do headlights

You have to remove the panel to check onthe connections behind it, also check the headlights switch, they tend to burn out.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee In'line 6 cyl.....Erratic guages... check guages light goes on, guages go off for 10 seconds, then back on. Speedometer jumps. Idiot lights sometimes come on for a few seconds...

This will be challenging to find ... If headlights dim or flicker too ... check battery terminals first. But I think it will be a large harness with quite a few wires on it ... Check ... for loose bulkhead connectors at the firewall ... and between the Engine and the body/firewall .... at the ECU .... you may also check for loose harness connectors at the fuse box. check for loose or corroded fuses ... especially if a cover is missing.
If I remember correctly this truck has 3 fuse panels in it. Check the manual

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee chugs after it warms up. I've changed the fuel filter and it is still having the same issue. Could it be some sort of sensor?

Hi G. Sanders,
I have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport which I love and has a K&N filter and approxmately 140k miles. I'm not sure if we are having the same problem but here goes; within a few minutes of cranking up, my Jeep goes through a "chug period" for a few minutes. During those minutes it seems it is not getting fuel.I cannot trust it to pull out in traffic because it seems to lose power during this time as well and sometimes backfires. After a few (maybe 3-5 minutes) it's fine. It doesn't matter whether it's 35 or 95 degrees, it does the same thing. I've had a Jeep "Expert" to look at it and put it on a computer but could not identify the issue. I cannot offer a solution unfortunately but hopefully some Jeep "Angel" can. It is very dangerous and I'm hoping someone can offer some advice. Good luck Jeep buddy.
