The fog lights on a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee are accessed from the wheel wells. Remove the rivets for the dust covers to gain access to the lights. Twist off the bulbs and replace them.

if it is a jeep Cherokee it needs a neutral safety switch mounted on the passenger side of the transmission. if it is a jeep grand Cherokee it needs the backup switch located on the drvers side of the transmission

Check/replace bulbs Check sockets for power, ground, corrosion

Just replaced the headlight bulbs in a 98 Grand Cherokee that had the same problem. It had the wrong bulbs in it. It had 9007's in it. Calls for 9004's.

It only allows starting in park and neutral and it turns on the reverse lights.

On my 1993, 1 is Brown/with a light green tracer, the other is black. If the bulbs are good & the sockets look O.K. The Back up lights then go to the transmission. Right side reverse switch or some say neutral safety switch.

If parking and dash lights work: Maybe bad bulbs (double filamented) Bad socket? Bad ground circuit?

Where is the 1994 JEEP grand cherokee Daytime Running Lamps Lights Module? Lights are working but the running lights and dash board lights are out.

I would check the wires just behind the light. I had the same problem and the wires were broken a little just wiggle them as the lights are on.

check the bulbs, the fuse..and then the flasher a manual will have a diagram See if your local library has a professional shop manual to look at for free... dave

Check the bulbs in case they have fused, next check the fuse, and finally it could be the brake light switch which may need replacing

The lights on your 98 Grand Cherokee are designed to turn off when you start the vehicle. This is how they are made. Once the doors and closed and the ignition is turned on, they turn off.

Check your fuse. Usually the manufacturer has the dash lights and the tail lights on the same circuit.

It should say TAIL for taillights or maybe brake lights.

YES. The harness is behind the bumper in proximity of the location of the lights.
