1989 Jeep Cherokee - Electrical Problem - horn, brake lights, blinkers, radio/cd...

89 Jeep Cherokee Sport- brake lights, horn, blinkers, turn signal, radio, heating and air are all out. However, the dome light and instrument panel lights are working. I've checked all of the fuses in the panel under the drivers side and they are good. I've looked and looked under the hood and can't find the engine fuse box (most manuals say it is on the passangers side by the battery or right behind the glove box - all I see on the passanger's side are the fuel reserve tank, relay lid and battery). Under the plastic relay compartment lid there are only relay switches and much wiring that connects to other wires - no fuses.

1. Is there even an engine fuse box on 89 Jeep Cherokee?
2. Should I be looking for something besides engine fuses?

Many thanks!

    I have the exact very problem with my 89 Jeep Cherokee and would like to know if this was resolved and if so what the resolution was. I noticed that there was no power going into the fuse box under the drivers side for those circuits so the issue must be under the hood somewhere.

I think I have found the problem. When I wiggle the ignition switch the turn signals and radio go on and off so I feel the issue is in the ignition switch. From what I understand the actual electronics for the switch are at the base of the sterring column behind the lower dash panel and is connected by a rod that may need adjusting.

There should be a power distribution box on the right side or passenger side next to the coolant tank. It will have relays and large fuses in it and the lid has the diagram in the inside. There should be a mian fuse in there.

There could be a fusible link under the hood off the starter relay that is burnt out.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I had blinkers and flashers no brake lights, and after checking the bulbs in the light itself I dont have blinkers or flashers at all


Just no turn signals in the back now? Maybe didn't install the bulbs tight back into the asm? No brake lights...do the lights work with headlights on and just no illumination with the brake pedal depressed? Could be brake light switch.
