The trailer plug in the Jeep may be wired wrong. Make sure the tail light plug is connected to the jeep taillight circuit. Some trailer plugs include a "hot" wire that allows the trailer to run a few accessories. Your trailer tail lights may be connected to that circuit.
take the battery off and then fix the light swish
The cost depends on where you take the Jeep Cherokee to be fixed. There will be a cost for the lights and other supplies plus a charge for the labor.
check the ground wire on the trailer. if it is corroded at all they may not work. take a file to where the ground wire is hooked up to make sure it is on bare metal
Your reverse light, neutral safety switch has a problem, remove it ( right side trans ) and take it apart ( 2-300 bucks new ) clean it and adjust it.
The flashers are in the DS fuse panel, behind that fuse panel there is also a flasher relay that controls the truck and trailer signal lights and the trailer brake lights. To get to the back of the fuse panel you must take the bottom part of the dash off.
Buy a tow bar. Install the tow bar cleats to the front bumper of the Jeep. Attach the tow bar with the removable pins and then connect the ball connector to the ball hitch of the towing vehicle. Run safety chains from the tow bar to the hitch loops of the towing vehicle. Make sure you lock the ball connection with either a nut & bolt OR a padlock. Put the Jeep in 3rd gear, make sure the hubs are NOT locked. Put the key in the ignition and unlock the steering wheel. Drive slowly, try to stay on streets and don't do too much highway driving. If towing at night, it's a good idea to use trailer lights - in some states you need trailer lights any time you tow - day or night. Good luck.
There are nuts under each hinge. Take those off and then you can just lift the door straight up. there is also a switch inside the door that is for the interior lights. You will need to somehow keep them depressed so the lights stay off. There is a part you can but to screw on, or i just unhooked the plug into the back of mine.
Take a light tester and check the pins at the truck side trailer plug. With the truck set for running lights check for power at the pins. If there is power then there is a loose or bad wire on the trailer side. If there is no power then there is a power problem on the truck side.
Like the old Christmas tree lights, no; lights connected in series will not stay lit if one (or more) are either burned out or disconnected from the circuit. Lights in series are connected "head-to-tail". Take one out, and the circuit is incomplete and will not work.
seat belts on stay in seats
The brake light bulbs ar removed from the rear of the light assy . Take it off of the body.
remove the battery btw, your mom.
make sure the selector switch for the lights in in the right position you may have put it to on accidentally
First understand the wiring. It can use four to seven wires to control lighting. Choose the correct connector. Connect all the necessary components to work simultaneously such as electric trailer brake controller, backup lights and a 12V power supply. Take the vehicle to an expert if the task is tricky.
move the dimmer back and forth and turn the parking lights on and off. sometimes the switch gets wierd.
If you've already checked all of the bulbs and the fuses (to include the maxi-fuses under the hood), it might be your multifunction switch. I had the same problem, and had to take my Jeep to a pro to diagnose it.
No. The repossessor can only take the unit they were contracted to repossess. Taking any other vehicle (which includes a trailer) is a felony, and a separate felony will be assessed if there's a load in that trailer.
Make sure the boat is secured to the trailer and that all lights are working. Do not use excessive speed, and avoid sudden stops or turns.
Because there is a problem with the Anti-Lock Brake System. Not a DIY repair. Take it to a professional.
If the warning lights come on when you start the car, but then go back off, there is no reason for alarm. However, if the lights stay on, or come on when you are driving you should probably stop driving as soon as you can and take the car to the mechanic.
They can only take whatever it is they have an order of repossession for - if the trailer is not included in their order of repossession, they cannot take it.
I assume you have checked/replaced the bulbs. Take a cicuit tester and check the wire harness connections under the bumper and around the trailer connector if you have one. The problem must be at that area IF all your other lights are working as you said.
You have what is called a back feed, where you have wires striped and touching. So start at the lights and start to trace the wires until you find the exsposed wires. This might take some time though.
They can disconnect the trailer, but, if that trailer isn't included in the order for repossession, they cannot take it - doing so is theft, and a crime.
Typically an empty trailer will take longer to stop. The reason is that the tractor trailer have been designed to work together loaded. The trailer does not get enough traction when empty so the friction generated by the trailer tires to contribute to stopping the truck is not great enough and the stopping distance increases.
