#87 of 735 97 Grand Cherokee ignition seems to come on by itself
Dec 26, 2008 (3:02 pm)
Here's the problem with my 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Out of nowhere, when I go to get in the vehicle, as soon as I open the door, the heater fan comes on with no key in the ignition. The heater fan switch is in the on position when this happens but there is no key in the ignition and the ignition is in the off position. It happened a week ago and it killed the battery. at that time, I charged it and started it and shut it off, but its almost like the key was still on but it wasn't. The dash lights went off with the key but the fan and blinkers still had power.
I unhooked the battery and waited a minute, hooked it back up but the fan blower and blinkers still worked with no key on. I unhooked the battery overnight and the next day everything was ok after I rehooked the battery.
Today I opened the door and the fan started to run with no key in the ignition.
I left the battery unhooked for a few hours, hooked it up and the fan didn't come on, until I opened the door.
This is a nice vehicle but when I figure out the problem it will be up for sale.
Any clues from anyone?

Radio doesn't work and radio lights pulse on and off after you start the car... If you just turn the accessories on the radio works fine...
No running lights, with the car running or off... All other exterior lights work...
Dashboard lights don't work...
Speedometer doesn't work...
If I open any of the passenger doors there is a relay near the glove compartment that starts clicking...
Interior lights on the door are on when the car is running and the doors are closed... they get brighter and dim with the same pulse that the radio lights are blinking, whether or not the radio is on...
Interior ceiling lights are also affected...
Fuses are all good...

I just purchased an 05 JGC 2 weeks ago, and just this morning on my way to work, I experienced the dash panel lights all turn on at once, then while that happened, my speedometer, and gas gauge dropped and rose again after the lights went back off. It happened twice, and I'm pretty sure this thing has some issues, which breaks my heart because I love the car.
#92 of 735 93 Grand Cherokee Laredo - voltage
Jan 19, 2009 (8:56 am)
I just bought a 1993 grand cherokee laredo - the problem is -- the voltage gauge drops from 14-18 at start up down to 9 or lower as the jeep warms up or I turn on heater, lights, wipers and then wants to stall. The alternator is new but had it checked twice to make sure was working right, the starter is new. I even tried changing the PCM with one from another 93 ( wouldn't even start ). I put the original back in and the jeep started up. Not sure what to do now. any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you -- George
