Electrical Issues

Howdy everyone,

I have an electrical problem with a '94 Cherokee.

I have a Haynes Manual and it looks like everything that is supplied off of the A5 splice is dead, does anyone know where this splice is located?

Thanks

Well, the FSM should help you, Ill send A link in a PM (i think I still have it). A5 should not be a splice though, splicers are S, connecters C, grounds G, but I don't know what A's are, I think they are just pin locations on a connector. The FSM has connecter, splice, and ground locations though.

A5 should be a battery feed circuit, not a splice. Could not find circuit A5 in Haynes or the FSM...please elaborate.

Yes, I knew i saw A's in there somewhere. Yeah, atleast my 01 has no A5 other than in reference to fog lamps on a connector pin. But other than that I saw nothing in any diagrams. If that is what your referring to, then it would be much simpler to refer to them, and since you said "everything that is supplied off of the A5 splice is dead" I doubt it.

What all is "dead"?

Sorry for the long delay in replies, I gave this Jeep to my son and he was suppose to follow up on this...

A5 is in the Haynes electrical schematics and runs a lot of things, all of those are cutting out...

Ok, I think what everyone is asking you to supply is what is powered by this "A5"? There are people here that repair these Jeeps for a living that are not familiar with what an "A5" electrical connection is. Haynes are not Jeep Gods. Quite the contrary. If they don't know what something is on a vehicle they quite often will make **** up instead of actually doing research to find out what it is.

If you have a scanner, scan the page of the electrical diagram or the description of what you're having trouble with. PM me here for my e-mail address and I'll host the picture for you.
