Question about 1988 Jeep Cherokee
Hi, I have a 1988 Jeep Cherokee Chief. When I bought it a couple years ago, it was having problems with the panel illumination lights. Finally, they stopped working all together. I've replaced all the bulbs on the panel, and checked the fuse for the panel lights, which is still good. Now before I replaced the bulbs, that fuse kept blowing on me. But it's not anymore. Is it likely a blown wire?
I would suggest replacing the headlight switch as it also controls the brightness of the dash lights by a variable resistor. If it has shorted, it will blow the fuse. Once the fuse gets replaced, it could have burned out the resistor completely. Chances are, unless something caught fire, or smoked horribly, a wire hasn't been burned out.
