Bad connection to low beam circuit.
I had a similar problem on my '95 Cherokee. I traced the short to the wiring harness connector that is directly under the air box. The years and miles of Michigan winter driving had caused a salty crud to infiltrate the harness and short out the low beams. I repaired the damage, and replaced the airbox with a K&N cone filter and air tube. I noticed that my 2001 Cherokee has the wire connection in a different location to avoid this problem.AnswerThis might sound simple, however my 93 did the same thing. The previous owner (my brother in law) change out the light switch behind the dash 6 months earlier. So when i had this problem I spent alot of time checking the wiring. However I notice the light switch box behind the dash was getting really hot. I purchased a new one around 20 bucks and swapped it out and have never had another problem. Note make sure you are very careful when you reattach the plug back into the new switch box. I think the my brother in law may have bent and loosend one on the copper plugs and that was causing a short when the lights were turned on. also make sure you reattach the ground wire, it is normally separate from the factory plug. .
Might be a weak battery
Probably a loose wire or a short in the wiring that powers the dashboard lights. Also check the fuses and the wiring to and from them.
Check your fuses, there might be one blown.
We might need a little more information. Do the lights flicker every time you switch between low and high? Have you noticed that your turn signal stalk feels gritty or mushy? When you switch to high beams, do they ever flicker later, or just when you switch them? Do they ever go out entirely? I'm thinking that maybe the turn signal switch might be bad, but it's hard to say with no more info. FriPilot
You might try moving the little adjustment wheel that dims and brightens the dash lights. It is connected to an electrical rheostat that might have become a little corroded over the years. "Exercising" (adjusting) the brightness up and down several times might be enough to re-establish a good, non-corroded, contact. Good luck.
Your 1996 Jeep grand Cherokee dash lights probably keep flashing and dimming because of a loose or corroded ground wire. The ground wire might be getting contact at times and at other times not getting contact.
the lights on the dash are as such, the left light is for the low oil pressure, the right light is low generator/alternator. The red light on the dash is for the cylinder head temp. if it exceeds a temp limit, it will light. when driving, or coming off the freeway, the oil pressure light might flicker, due to the change in pressure quickly. The generator light may flicker when 1st started or if the vehicle is ideling lower than required.
It sounds like you either have a bad headlight switch or the relay the controls your headlights has gone bad by sticking. you, Ray
you might need a new screen or change the power options
might have a short in the wiring to the light socket!! same happen to me...
TRY LOOKING ON THE END OF THE DASH ON THE PASSENGERS SIDE. ALSO YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECKOUT THIS SITE C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\jeep\Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ - Expanded index.mht
If parking lights and dash lights are not working and fuse blows out, there might be a problem with battery corrosion. Check the components specific to the circuits of the affected lights. It might be loose.
This might help you a little bit,I have a 96 Cherokee that dose that, took it to shop still having problem your flywheel may be the problem you starter maybe in a dead spot on your flywheel(Missing a tooth)
Look for a loose or corroded battery cable. The problem may also be a faulty starter solenoid/relay switch - you might want to have it checked out.
I understand this is a common problem for a 1986 300zx, so maybe it pertains to your car also. There might be weak solder on the power unit pin connector, or it might need repair to the power control unit. This can also affect the odometer.
That sounds like a grounding problem, probably near the right side lights. It might be a rusty or disconnected ground wire.
The engine might if they are both 4.0's. That would be about it.The engine might if they are both 4.0's. That would be about it.
check the neutral safety switch. Mine does the same thing. also you might not have reverse lights.
check your ground wires...they might be loose or detached.
you drain your battery when you leave your lights on
There might be a short somewhere, and it is drawing alot of power. It is like an electric chair...When extra voltage is used, the lights flicker, and when the switch is off,it goes back to normal. trying to find the short could be hard though.
I might be wrong, but I believe the current alternates while the engine processes energy. As the lights will flicker from time to time. A direct current would hold the power steady until the power source fades <<>> The output of a generator produces alternating current.
There is no such thing as a 2002 Jeep Cherokee. The last year was 2001.There is a Torx (Star) bolt on top of the headlight pretty much in the middle of the light. There's only one for each headlight. Remove that bolt, then pull the lights forward. It takes some effort, but they're only held in with clips and they'll pop out. It might help to start by prying at the bottom of the light. Hope this helps.
Snow and bad weather
