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 or

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).

    Thanks for the tip... and that checks: I've managed to get a diagram from an auto shop. It turns out the A/C was a simple unrelated fix. The relay was a horn relay and I was able to figure out where to plug it in from the diagram. If anyone needs this diagram, I plan on scanning it in at some point in the future.

    So, in short: problem solved--once I found the horn relay location.

Unfortunately the 2 symptoms you describe are not related to the same relay- the relays are typically in the same general area- the relay you describe sounds like the horn relay

I tried to wire a jvc kd-r320 in a 1996 jeep grand cherokee, hook it up and i got no lights or sound, when i turned on the jeep lights a loud buzzing sound came over the speakers?

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.

How to remove a radio from 1996 chevy lumina ls. I dont know how the molding comes off

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.

i have attached a link to metra onlines website

hope this helps

I need to know where to hook up the key hot wire on a 2005 gmc sierra?

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'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.

Need under hood fuse box diagram for 1994 ford f150

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.
