Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Electrical Problem with Air, Radio, and Lighter

My Jeep has a brand new starter on it. Prior to having the starter replaced, and continuing after, the Jeep's Air, Radio, and Cigarette Lighter will not come on or work while it is running.

The odd thing is, if I shut the vehicle off and turn the key in the opposite direction (like if you wanted to listen to the radio with the vehicle off), all three will work fine. The only stop working when I actually start the vehicle up and it is running.

The ignition switch has many wires to it, 1 for starting, 1 for acc(key turned back), 1 for on or running.
Check all wires to the switch to make sure nothing came loose.

My 1995 jeep grand cherokee Laredo won't start, or

You might not believe this, but check your battery. Some of these vehicles have cut-outs when the battery level goes below a preset amount.
I work on Ford brands and on them, a low battery level will even disconnect the Alternator circuit and mess with the starter. Some even act up when the battery slightly dips below 12 volts.

Your antitheft can make your starter cut out. And If you think about it, all of the measurements to make the engine run are based on feedback of voltage and amperage. This is how the engine management system adjusts. If your prime source of power is low, then all of the following electrical readings will be low. Some may be too low to work.

Your fuelpump will hold pressure in a closed system for hours. The fuel pressure regulator will command the fuelpump to stop working if the fuel pressure is at maximum. Without responses from the other components and after satisfactory pressure, the fuelpump will turn off.

Will not start all of a sudden,out of nowhere,brand new battery. radio,headlights,dash lights all okay.I hear 1 click only when trying to start.No warning signs as far as starter goes. 85k 60 highway....

Sounds like you have a starter that has gone bad. If the single click is coming From the starter than for sure the starter is your problem. The single click is the solenoid working but power is not getting to the starter motor from the solenoid. Very common symptom on chrysler/jeep vehicles.

I have found the solution to this problem. I have replaced a total of 3 starter motors and has gone away for various periods of time. Further diagnosed when concern happened again starter
would work again after starter ignition feed wire wiggled. I found corrosion build up in connector at ignition feed wire. I replaced connector on wire to starter solenoid and concern has not returned.

2004 jeep liberty electrical problems maybe

you have a short somewhere in the cigarette lighter. Most likely the socket itself, but possibly behind the dash somewhere. The radios in the Jeeps ****, and most likely just a bad radio. The door lock either has a bad actuator, or bad wiring in the door jamb. Remove the panel and see if you are getting power to the actuator. If so, you need it, if not check the wiring.

Every time i use my lighter it blows fuse for radio lighter and dash lights where does fuse go

Usually the fuses are under the steering wheel to the left and up against the firewall, like in front of where your left knee would be. There is a plastic door that you need to open to get to them. Its the fuse marked "radio". Your lighter might have a short. Or you could try a 25 or 30 amp fuse as to replace the blown one. If your radio is off and lights to the dash are off and the fuse still blows when you use the lighter you need a new lighter

Jeep will not start unless you give it gas and then after it is running if you take your foot off the gas pedal it dies. Car has new starter.

It's nice that your starter is new, but your starter does not start the turns the engine so it can start. So it has nothing to do with your problem...I would check for vacuum leaks at each and every vacuum hose. Then look at possible throttle position sensor and idle control valve./ valve passages. (there are electrical tests you can make on these and valve can be cleaned with carb cleaner, (carefully without turning internal plunger.)

Apart from the fuse cutting off you might have had some wires cut off too. Have an expert take a look at it for you.

I experienced this before.

Good luck.
