Question about 1991 Jeep Cherokee Limited

1 Answer

Relay There is no relay in the box for the headlights. The headlights are on a large 40 amp fuse. We have noticed a buzzing sound for about 2 seconds when we pull the light switch to turn them on. Could the relay switch for the headlights be in another location?

Ok, I did more research you are right they don't have a relay, just the I thought a 20A fuse, If you have 12V at the light socket. Then it sounds like you have a ground problem. Check your grounds make sure there isn't corrosion etc. Clean them up I think this may be your issue. You changed the switch so that is the only other thing that would usually cause that. Check your grounds and let me know.
Thanks,
Lee

Modus headlight stays on


Buzzing sound in a box besides the battery comes from a headlight relay that is malfunctionning, or getting weak power when not supposed to, maybe due to corrosion or dirt in the fuse box. You can try to exchange the left and right headlight relays for one another, if problem switches to the driver side, relay is bad, just change it. If it is still on passenger side, then the relays are good and you will need to check for corrosion and dirt or stripped/frayed wired in the fuse box itself. This may require you to take the box apart which can be a pretty hard job, so if you don't feel safe doing this, ask a professional to it. And if you do try this yourself, please remember to unplug the battery before working on the fuse block so you don't short anything out or cause damage to the electronics.

1986 Supra. Head lights pop up but does not turn on.


the headlight pop-up circuit is different from the lights themselves. Check the headlight fuses in the engine compartment fuse box. If the fuses are good then check the headlight relay. It is in the same fuse box just behind the headlight fuses. (The headlight relay is the second relay from the right side of the fuse box. the relay at the far right is the electronic fuel injection main relay.)

How do I know if the fuel pump is bad & if it


Hi

2 things you need to know, 1 the fuel pump needs a relay this is a small elecro magnet type switch in the fuse box, normally a small black box. near the fuses. when you put the key in and turn 2 clicks it should click and then you should here a buzzing noise the noise is the pump working so if that noise is not there then you need to check the fuse, relay first as the pump will not work without them. secondly after you are sure these 2 are good while the buzzing noise is there the car should run, if not then the problem is not the pump

96 Dodge Ram 1500 wiring diagram for headlights.


Here's a link to a pdf file containing the headlight wiring diagram for your year model Dodge Ram 1500..
I can't help but notice that you say you've replaced the headlight relay? That's quite odd, because there is NO headlight relay on this vehicle- only a 40 amp fuse located in the power distribution box that sits behind the battery inside the engine bay.
The switch is notorious for burning out because there is NO RELAY on this vehicle, and there is a recall (#819) but this only affects 3500 models even though the headlight wiring is the same for 1500,2500 and 3500 model Rams.
Here are two more links that will help you troubleshoot your headlights problems.
