I had the same problem with my 96 grand cherokee limited a while back, when the mechanic checked it out he said it was a sensor. He changed the sensor then it worked fine for about a couple of days until it happened again.
Then the mechanic checked it out again and saw that the alternator was not longer working properly. He said that the battery is what holds the power to start the car and somehow charge the alternator which later charges the battery back, this happens back and forth. Long story short, got the alternator fixed and have had no problem with the car since december.

I have no brake light/parking lights, I have lost power to the radio, the dash, powerlocks, and interior/dome lights. Could this be that my 50 AMP Fuse(red -parking & interior lights) is blown ?

I usually pick one component that has a problem, look up wiring diagram, check voltage and ground for that component. Sometimes fixing one component or circuit, may or may not fix the others? It just depends on the vehicle?

I wouldn't have any problem replacing the oil pressure switch to see if that takes care of the issue. Many time it will.

The interior lighting is not working after replacing battery. I've checked all fuses located under the hood on the drivers side as well as in the trunk. the components that are not working are the...


Often the interior lights are looped on one circuit.
It only takes one bad connection to stop the 12v volts flowing. I would start with any connection that can be exposed to water or rust. Doors would be a good start.
Grab yourself a cheap multimeter and probe each connection (after removing the light bulb / lamp) for the presence of 12 volts DC.
If you have an electrical drawing use the 50/50 rule. ie check for power at the 50% point (halfway in the drawn circuit). If there is power at that point, check again at the next approximate 50% point ie downstream, continuing until you narrow down the area wit the problem. NOTE: If there is no power at the initial 50% point (the very first place you checked) work your way backwards (or upstream) in the circuit towards the fuse box, again using the same 50/50 rule.
If you are not confident, take it to a reputable automobile electrician.
Good luck,

Toyota pick up 91 4wd engine service light codes


Unfortunatly ther is no generic code when your engine light is on you have to go to your local garage and have the truck scanned to get the code
and if your engine light is flashing you will damage your catalyct converter if the problem is not fixed soon

Check to ensure that battery cables are tight, and engine ground, and all wires running to your alternator.
