Question about Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 96 jeep cherokee. What is wrong when only the high beams work. Replaced the bulbs it didnt fix the problem. The switch on the steering wheel that turns on the brights clicks on and off it doesn't have to be held in, so people have told me thats not the problem. Anyone know where I can start to fix this problem?

Some had a headlight fuses check all fuses.if okay then the dimmer switch itself could have a problem with the low beam side of the switch.the dimmer switch is located on the steering column at the base of the column near the firewall.if you put your hand on the top of the column under the dash,and operate the lever you will feel the rod that moves the switch and follow the rod to the switch.then check the switch to see if power is coming out for the low beam side.if its okay then you may have bad headlight relay which is located in the relay box.

97 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 Low beams will now work, high beams do. We replaced the bulbs and the low beams worked for a while and then didn't again, husband took out passenger side bulb and put it back...


Make sure that you are using the head light bulbs for that particular make/model if the bulb number is wrong then the intensity is wrong too. Now a day there are many diffrent numbers of bulbs in the market according to vehicle.

On my 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee the high beam's work and the fog lights work but the regular headlights don't. How do i fix it?


Assuming that the low beam bulbs are okay, there is a possibility that your dimmer switch that controls your low & high beams is malfunctioning. This part is on the steering column and may require some disassembly of the column cover to access.

2003 Kia Sedona replaced low beam bulbs checked fuses still won't work high beams n fog lights work can u help


IF THERE IS NO POWER AT EITHER LOW BEAM LIGHT SOCKET & YOU ARE SURE ABOUT THE FUSES, SWAP THE WORKING HIGH BEAM BULBS WITH THE LOW. IF THAT DOESN'T DO IT YOU NEED TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE BEAM SELECT SWITCH, { DIMMER SWITCH } KNOWN AS THE COMBINATION SWITCH, UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL. CAN USUALLY BE DONE WITHOUT PULLING THE STEERING WHEEL. TEST BEFORE BUYING, MAY BE COSTLY. GOOD LUCK , DR.VOLT

97 cherokee, lowbeam headlight won't go on?


Try putting your tilt steering wheel all the way up and see if it comes on. Ors did that and we had a pinched wire in the steering column.

The high beams on my 1994 Jeep Cherokee work, but the low beams don't. The fuses seem to be okay. Any ideas what could cause this?


u should start by checking the bulbs, sometimes it is hard to tell your low beam bulbs are bad until they are both out, if they are both good try wiggling the headlight dimmer switch between high and low beam functions to see if the switch is just worn out. if neither of these presents the problem then u may have an electrical issue that should be diagnosed by a technician

try taking your tilt steering(steeringwheel) and check which setting its on if the tilt steering is all the way down click it up to the next setting and then try your low beams if that still doesn't work try it one more click up you might have a short or pinched wire in your wheel colum

High beam problem


Just to clarify, the high beam and low beam bulbs are the same bulb. It is a dual element bulb. If the bulbs and switch are known good, check the high beam relay.
