The headlights went out on our jeep wrangler, so we bought a new switch , so now the new switch is in... headlights work,, , bad news is , tail lights, park lights, fog lights, and instrument panel lights do not work.. we thought it was a faulty switch so paid another 75 dollars and guess what same problem.. we also changed the fuse.. just a baffler to us.. any answers???? if so we sure would appreciate it.

Did the other lights that are now out still work when the headlights first failed?
If so I'd guess that you've dislodged a connector or damaged a wire while fitting the replacement h/l switch.
If not, then it needs to be diagnosed 'hands on' with a DVOM (multimeter) and the circuit diagrams.
Just a thought, but you say you checked 'the' fuse. On my '99 (I don't have the '97 circuit diagrams handy but they're probably somewhat similar) there several fuses concerned with the lighting circuits. You might want to check on those.
#1466 of 1886 "89 Wrangler under dash wireing diagram
Jan 29, 2009 (4:50 pm)
I bought a '89 Wrangler from a person in another state and don't have contact information with him anymore. It runs good, but the previous owner modified the wiring. I suspect they put a big amp in the back with monster speakers. The wires from the radio are cut and hanging and I have no dash lights. I have taken the cowling off the front of the dash, but can't see where the dash lights go. All the fuses seem to be ok.
Does anyone have a wiring diagram they could send me a copy of or tell me where I can get one?

On my 1999 there's another fuse box under the hood in front of the battery, You might check those fuses.

It is easy to do. There is a writeup on www.4x4xplor.com and it should come with instructions.
#1470 of 1886 Jacking one side of a '99 Wrangler
Feb 08, 2009 (6:34 pm)
A friend just called me to find out where he could place a jack to lift one side of his '99 Wrangler. Can he? If so, where should he place the jack? He's working on it now.

Sure, under the chassis rail. He may have to try a couple of different locations to get the correct balance point. Make sure to support the vehicle with a couple of axle stands under the rail before working on it though.
#1472 of 1886 Jeep will not start! HELP!
Feb 10, 2009 (4:35 pm)
Hi, i did a search and found nothing addressing my issue exactly so im hoping to find knowledgeable advice from fellow Jeep owners. ok, so i have a 98' wrangler sport. I went to start my car the other day and got nothing, not even a noise. My headlights, and horn work and my "door open" beeps when keys in ignition. i have no radio, or any gauge lights when key is turned. this is what i ruled out:
1- battery has fluid in and has been charged
2-fuses under hood had all had juice
3-cranked starter manually and got sparks
4-took to mechanic and he changed ignition switch twice
im sure its got to be electrical. but where to look? any help would be great. thank you
