Did you ever find out what was causing your electrical problems? I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo which is doing something similar. The check engine light goes on and off. Sometimes all of the gauges stop working after I hear a series of noises. But the worst part is that the lights go out. If I stop the car, and turn off the engine and then restart it, the lights usually come back on. Tonight they wouldn't come back on. I found out that if I pulled the dimmer/high light control toward the steering wheel and held it there, the lights stayed on dimly. I turned on the flashers and drove carefully home. I have had it in the shop three times and they say that they need this to be going on to run their diagnostics. Unfortunately, so far, it has only happened on weekends and evenings when they are not in the shop. I am getting desperate. I need my vehicle but I am afraid to drive it at night. Any suggestions?

My problem ended up being the battery after all. Since I had the alternator checked and found it OK I decided to pull the battery and have it checked. It turned out being very weak. The low voltage must have disabled the alternator from working correctly. Don't know for sure what to tell you about your problem. Definitely sounds electrical somewhere.

I have a very similar problem in a 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 195K miles. Clicking from relay 56006709 50732 when door is open and radio, heater, AC computer problems. I pulled the rely and two of the prongs were scorched- I replaced relay but the problem was not fixed.

Ancobaca and jhtjr,
Any resolution to your problems? I have 95 Jeep with similar problems- same clicking with door open, heater stuck on. I tried replacing 56006709 under the glove box but this didn't help. I can drive the car with the relay pulled- but radio, computer, HVAC don't work.
thanks all for any info

I had the problem with the instruments going to zero while driving and would have to hit the face of the instrument panel with my fist to fix it temporarily. I partially removed the instrument cluster (could not remove it completely because I could not figure out how to remove the headlight switch knob). I found that the four or five phillips head screws that hold the panel together were all somewhat loose. I tightened all of them and replaced the cluster and have not had the problem since. Apparently they complete the ground circuits to the panel.

Check fuse #8! (I'm pretty sure it was #8--it was definitely a 15 amp fuse.)
I had a very similar problem with a 95 Grand Cherokee. It all started when turning off an overhead light. A relay near the passenger's feet was clicking rapidly when a door was open; radio worked intermittently; an aftermarket CD changer didn't work; info display in front of gear shift didn't work; interior lights blinked dimly, even when they should have been off; power door locks didn't work. The car drove fine, but the electrical system was going crazy. It turned out that this was all caused by one blown fuse.

My problem persists, sounds very similar. I gave up on fixing it a year or so ago. I became convinced at that time that problem was not in the supply side of the electrical ckts, i.e., not the +12VDC side of things for which the fuses and relays play a role, but rather a bad ground connection somewhere. Only this could explain how so many things are messed up. Good luck!!
