You have a 1999 Jeep Cherokee a 15 amp fuse in the motor compartment keeps blowing out when the jeep is put in reverse after driving a few miles short somewhere any ideas?
What Fuse that controls what? Way too little info provided.
First i would check the wire from trans to make sure that it is not
arcing out it may have rubbed on something other than that check
the eaths. Check the reverse switch, and any wires leading to and
from the transmission that look as if they're possibly carrying
voltage. wiring harness behind the valve cover on a 4.0 is a very
common problem area for shorts. i am a master chrysler, jeep...
tech. i would bet real cash the problem is there. look at the
drivers side at the firewall. good luck! I AGREE: check
the engine compartment wiring harness- it may be chaffing on the
end of the fuel rail near the firewall. reinsulate the damaged wire
and zip tie the harness to the one above it.
