Once you replaced the lamp did you reset the hours under the menu? If you do not do that some times the set believes it's in warning mode and prevents a potential implosion of the lamp which creates issues such as the set not turning on, staying on that long, or the lamp light still flashes.

Let me know how that works out for you.

Also, what "old wires" are you referring to?

My left side tail light doesn't work after changing the lamp. Jeep 2007 - Commander

it worked before the change out?
there are 3 things that are first. on advance electronics, cars. like this. 2007 is 1st year, of wild complexity.
  1. check fuses first. MIP fuse #8,9,10 (8 is left) check that?
  2. check action of park relay
  3. check for trailer wiring hacks (do you have factory hitch option?)
  4. and scan the PCM , do you see any park fail DTCs'
DTCs are system errors.
that is first.
next if not solved, we look in the FSM for that chapter, and the schematics, to see how its is structured. (varies by year, car)

FSM JEEP XK 2007 (book)
factory service manual.

left side rear tail (park) (tail is old name , car has many park lamps now , not just 1 or 2 tails like in the old days.
so it park and the relay of same name.
there are front parking lights too... do those all work>?

my guess, is you didnt check fuses first.
am i right?
fuse 8 is blown?
but that takes out front left park
and left side marker (park ) lamps too.
so did you look at all left park lights first>?

i bet not, if im wrong then you do have wiring errors.
or the new lamp from china is shorted inside, (common)
try one more lamp , like from GE or Philips.

if it starts then stalls, its the wiring that goes to your air flow meter, if theres nothing at all that happens check for spark, if there is no spart its most probably your coil.

The lamp just stopped working. Have had for approx 2 year only used 20 times went to turn it on and nothing happened. Replaced bulb and plugged into a new outlet still nothing. Is this a common problem?...

You can re-wire it yourself. Here is how:
Disconnect the lamp from the wall outlet. Then use a knife to pry off the protective covering to give access to the wiring in the base of the lamp.
Use a wrench, or pliers to remove the nut that secures the long, threaded tube to the base of the lamp. Most lamps will contain a lead weight; remove this from the base as well.
Pull the tube part way out from the top of the lamp. Unscrew the socket from the tube by turning it counterclockwise.
If you are renewing a cord, cut the old cord to make dismantling easier.
Remove the outer shell of the switch socket by pressing at the base and pulling it straight up. Slide off the cardboard insulating sleeve to expose the socket's screw terminals.
Unscrew the two wires on the terminals. If you are replacing the switch or socket, fit the wires onto the new unit in the same way they were attached to the old one.
If feeding a new wire and plug, feed the wire through the lamp base and threaded tube. Connect the wires to the switch or socket. Reassemble lamp in same order that it was dismantled
Some lamp models have a harp which must be removed before further dismantling remove by pressing the two bottom arms together. Some lamps are held by finger nuts.
Some sockets and switches have metal shells which are removed by pressing at their base.

Projector was turned off wrong and now wont turn back on.

if the led flashes once in 2-second intervals and you don't hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel needs replacing. if you do, the ballast is bad. if it flashes 2 times, the lamp is past 3000 hours. 4 times, fan error. 5 times, temp too high and it needs to cool.

Rough idle no power when given gas

check spark plug connections,if you didnt replace the cap and rotor ,they will fail quickly,because new wires and plugs are going to demand more current,old cap and rotor just cant handle,is that the mass air flow sensor that you replaced?very delicate part,must be clean,and mounted securely,double check part no. make sure they gave you the right one,if you put in a used one ,all i can say is that you get what you pay for.check fuel pressure,its possible that the fuel pump is starting to fail,and the tune up has nothing to do with the problem(consider this option only if nothing else works)

Change the lamp/ didnt help, lamp indicator is on

I actually fixed this myself!!!! Same thing, new bulb, fans work, turn on for first 20 seconds or so, see HP splash screen and then it shuts down. Try below....It worked for me.

Here's the fix: Take off the top cover of the projector. Unplug the wire leading from the two fans in the back of the unit to one of the circuit boards in front of you. Just trace one wire from fan to board. Unplug at board. Turn unit on and it will again turn on, show HP splash screen and then shut down, like it should, because the fans are now disabled. After it completly shuts down, plug the fan wire back into the board. Turn the unit back on and, presto, its working again. It will not turn off.

Try it!
