Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

4 Answers

Electric, dome lights, dash display, radio

Just noticed on 94 JGP laredo that dome light in back passenger area was on (even with car off). With these (and front dome lights) you just push the light to turn it on/off. Well it was stuck in. Pushing it at first didn't do anything. It stayed on. Pushing it a few more times I finally got it off (but it is still stuck). I think I might have to take off that top panel to fix anything.

Here are the problems after getting that one off. Pushing on any domelight will someitimes turn on the other. Or sometimes it will turn on the correct one but pushing again to turn off will turn on the other one. Pushing it again now will turn off both. Also my radio clock reset to 12:00. When I turn on the radio it shows the radio for a second then the display goes away with no radio. No tape play. Also when opening driver side door all lights will normally come on but only the lights around driver & front passenger, and the light in very back come on. And there is a strange clicking noise coming from the light by the front passenger's leg area. And the display that shows a pic of jeep that will highlight problems (like a door thats ajar) is no longer displaying anything.

Obviously something electrical went wrong but I have no clue what. Is this just a fuse I need to change? I have no clue what the clicking noise is. Very confused!!!

Bad wire harness connections or worn wires cause short circuit somewhere. Electric wires network needs to be thoroughly checked.

Yes, this is really a electrical problem and changing all busted fuse and checking some electrical will defintely help, but as a piece of advice better ask a electrician take a look on this to properly diagnose and also to prevent further problem with it..

Hope that helps........

Yes, probably it's a fuse.
Try to remove the fuses one by one and check if there is a broken one and replace it.

Front area dome lights won't turn off killing battery life. where is the relay for this?


Can you manually turn them off by moving the selector switch on the dome to "off" position? If not, the length of time that the dome lights were on may have melted the selector switch and you cannot turn them off except by removing the bulb...and replacing the switch or dome light.......

No dome light when passenger door open


Since the passenger door doesn't get used as much as the drivers door, check to see if the switch is not just stuck. It is a little button with a spring that opens up and turns the light on. It is located on the hinge area of the door and when the door closes it shuts off the switch, if it is not stuck then I would suspect said switch.
