You could always add a good pair of aftermarket fog lights that come with a relay kit and switch you mount to the dash .The only thing is by most laws you cannot run high beams w/aftermarket fog lights on at the same time only low beam ,they have to be manually turned off for oncoming traffic.You can get a good set for around $65.00.These kits come with easy instructions.

SOURCE: low beam headlights go out when switched from high beam

Check the fuse. There is a fuse block under the hood as well as on on the passenger side forward of the door jam, close to the loorboards. If thats not the problem try pulling the switch and make sure that it is not warn out. The switches inside are not what you may think and if you remove it you will see how easy it could fail. Try replacing the switch.

try taking your tilt steering(steeringwheel) and check which setting its on if the tilt steering is all the way down click it up to the next setting and then try your low beams if that still doesn't work try it one more click up you might have a short or pinched wire in your wheel colum

Use a test light, or a ohmmeter and check the wires at the wire plug under the dash that go to the multi-function switch thru the steering column cover, you should have continuity between #18 and #19 low beam terminals, if not the switch is bad and will need replaced. it shows how to check this in Haynes 1993 to 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee repair manual #50025 page 12-6. To replace the switch in the column cover, remove the negative battery cable, wait 2 minutes to disarm the air bag system, leave cable disconnected, before removing the column cover.

IS THERE A HEADLIGHT RELAY FOR HIGH/LOW BEAMS, OR IS THAT THROUGH THE MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH IN THE TURN SIGNALS ON THE STEERING COL. HAVE AN ALTERNATING PROBLEM. I HAVE HIGH BEAM ON FRNT. RIGHT,NO LOW BEAM...


Headlights in my '03 Jeep Cherokee are through a relay, both both light's are on the same relay I believe.

I would be suspect of any added modules which drive the headlights. Hopefully, they didn't "splice" in, but used one with factory connectors, so you can remove the module and reconnect the connectors as the vehicle was shipped from the factory.

When it's all said and done, you really need a wiring diagram for the vehicle. I can get one for my Jeep at the local repository library. Don't know about your truck. You may be able to find a diagram through some hard searching on the www.

Let me know if you need someone to bounce thoughts off of.

The high beams on my 1994 Jeep Cherokee work, but the low beams don't. The fuses seem to be okay. Any ideas what could cause this?


u should start by checking the bulbs, sometimes it is hard to tell your low beam bulbs are bad until they are both out, if they are both good try wiggling the headlight dimmer switch between high and low beam functions to see if the switch is just worn out. if neither of these presents the problem then u may have an electrical issue that should be diagnosed by a technician
