Change headlight 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Replacement of Jeep Cherokee Headlight There is a bulb that plugs into a socket dirctly behind the headlight. In order to access it you must lift the hood. Next, you will have to remove the plastic ring that holds the socket in the rear of the headlight housing. Twist the ring CCW (if you are facing the front of the vehicle)until it becomes loose and pull the socket and bulb through the hole. Then using a small flat tipped screwdriver lift out the little tab that holds the lightbulb on the socket and pull the bulb straight out from the socket. {Note: Pay Close Attention to the direction the plastic ring came out from, it is a pain to get back on if you don't. It will only go on one way...to hold the socket in place}

Look at the socket itself. Wires could be burnt or even inside socket corroded or burnt. The light bulb socket assembly cost around $40. It is best to change it. Pretty much self explanatory. You can wiggle the bulb and sometimes it woill work for awhile but it is a pain to keep messing with it so I suggest replacement

How do you fix the turn signals on a 93 Ford Ranger?

Turn signals that do not work is almost always, a blown fuse, bad bulb, corroded socket, or a defective flasher relay. If the lights come on but do not flash, it is the flasher relay. If the light does not come on, the bulb is bad or the socket is corroded. If one light flashes very fast then your front/rear light may be burnt out. If no lights come on, then your fuse is blown.
