Need diagram for 1996 Jeep Cherokee under-dash/steering relay panel
I had a relay fall out from the relay panel under the dash/steering column area of my 1996 Jeep Cherokee. Of course, there is more than one relay spot where it could have come from and I hate to do "trial and error" with relays.
The Chiltons manual does not have a picture/description, nor does autozone.com or automotivehelper.com.
Does anyone have a picture/diagram/description of this relay panel?
Only symptoms are: horn does not work and A/C does not cool (but the fan works). The relay is the smaller type (an inch by half inch, not the one inch square type).

You have the live connected to a speaker, recheck the wiring diagram. Red is the acc power, Black Neutral usually and yellow is direct power from battery. Wire just these and check if you have power and then do the speakers after you have that much working.
This is a very simple procedure...all you do is pull on it. The trim piece which goes around the stereo and instrument cluster is one piece and is held in by snaps. it will be easier if you take the drivers under dash panel off before pushing the dash bezel Be careful when you are removing it around the steering wheel-it can be stubborn, but moving the shift lever all the way into 1st gear and tilting the steering will all the way down will help.
To find where to hook up your power lead. The best way is with an inexpensive test light. You can get one at the local auto parts house. It looks like a screwdriver with a light-up handle and a wire pigtail on one end and instead of a screwblade it's got an ice-pick like tip. Connect the aligator clip end to a metal grounding location under the dash, and then with the key on, probe with the pointed end on some of the wiring near the fuse block or under the steering column. When the light in the test light illuminates, you've found a hot. Now turn the key off and see if the light goes out. That will be your hot for the the accessory hot. Then you'll most likely need to find a constant hot. This will be a wire that illuminates your test light whether the key is on or off. This one is hooked to the hot that is constant...it's the one that keeps all your radio stations and the memory items intact when the key is turned off.
So you'll have 2 a constant hot and an "accessory" hot that's only on with the key.
If you need wiring diagrams for your car, let me know. K

Your radio fuse is not under the hood. It is in the dash panel on the left of the steering column. Y have to have two hots one constant for the memoty and one accessory that powers on the unit when your ignition is engaged. All you need is a test light to find the constant when the truck is off and the accessory that comes on with the key. There may also be an inline fuse in the dash that is blown. It would most likely be on the memory hotwire.
