#2813 of 5134 1998 JGC - Can't Find Fuse
Apr 10, 2006 (8:50 am)
I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the fuse for the auxilary power outlet (always on) is blown but I can't find it to replace it.
The owners manual on page 202 shows a passenger side kick panel for these fuses but it doesn't exist on my jeep. I found the power distribution under the hood but the manual doesn't specify anything for this power outlet fuse. ???
Anybody know where its at?
Or is there an accurate fuse map for this? Because my owners manual sure isn't.

I had this same problem (1998 JGC) a few months ago and fortunately my solution was cheap but it could have been even cheaper than it was. It happened mainly when it was cold after just starting.
I took it in to dealer thinking it was something complicated but turned out to be just a battery near the end of its life.
It wasn't holding vital engine settings in memory every time car was shut off. So I took it to the dealer who , of course, charged me exhorbitantly for putting a new battery in (said they had to adjust all the settings blah blah, yea right) and tried to sell tons more service etc...
so ,,,,new battery might be a solution to this.

Apr 10, 2006 (3:12 pm)
Looking for information and tips for replacing the OEM radio in my new Jeep with a 3rd party aftermarket radio. How to remove the existing radio. Are the wiring harnesses (RF, Power, Audio) standard? Are the cables conductors labeled? Any assistance/information will be greatly appreciated

hey i have a jeep cherokee and the marker lights have been on for about a week now. it has happened before and the solution was that there was a pinched wire behind the dash so if you take off the dash and jiggle some of the wires around they might shut off.

#2820 of 5134 2005 jgc rear-wheel drive...
Apr 11, 2006 (11:53 am)
i bought my jeep in july 05 brand-new and it has 10,700 miles on it. i started noticing that it shuddered terrible while i was in drive but sitting still, as at a red light or something... i took it in (its there now) and they told me its the rotors. thats fine, if they see that the rotors were warped (which i never felt any brake problems at all--smooth sailing) then they should be dealt with. but am i nuts for thinking that its something more than the rotors? i mean, the car shouldnt shudder while stopped, right?

Apr 11, 2006 (8:19 pm)
I have read the advice about rotors from Auto Zone. The current set that I have on are factory rotors with 8,600 miles on them and they are shot. I am considering after market caliper assemblies since I already have the TSB upgrade calipers. My dealer is wonderful and will do anything they can to solve the problem but have not been able to solve it yet. I will be getting this done next week and will let all of you know if I have any success. Pray for me!

Apr 11, 2006 (10:43 pm)
I have the exact same truck, 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7L V8 with Quadradrive. I put a 2" lift kit on. It consists of spacers that go on top of the coil springs. Well I am having the same problem with a "shimmy" at 50 mph since I put on this kit. Although my "shimmy" is more like a violent, hard rattling, shaking that feels like all four tires are going to fall off. I'm currently doing all I can to get to the bottom of this and when I do, I promise that I will let you know right away!
