This should be a simple task for you since the cherokee already runs on a 12 volt power system. the easiest way to do it would be run a single pair wire from the battery itself to a 12 volt connector. there are harder, more detailed versions of this where you would need to dig into the fuse box, but if you are looking to power something low voltage like a gps, cell phone the first way will work.

you can buy the connector and wire with a fuse on it from any autoparts store. you will need to drill through your firewall and I would recommend a uni-bit or multi-bit to get through it. it will go right on to your drill.

Fuse keeps blowing dash lights and tail lights dont work jeep cherokee sport 1999


There are several fuses involved. I need to know which one(s). As for the taillights, the primary power source is 20A fuse 17 in the power distribution center. The tan/blk wire connects to the headlamp switch which, in park position, applies +12 volts through 10A fuse 7 in the junction block to the left tail light. The headlamp switch, in park position, also apples +12 volts through 10A fuse 23 in the junction block to the right tail light.

I need to know which fuse is blowing the instrument lights so you will have to follow up

On my 2000 jeep grand cherokee, my right brake light is not working even after I changed the light bulb. what should i do?


If you have a multi-tester and know how they work, you need to check the bulbholder to see if you are getting power to it. There should be approximately 12 volts at the holder.
