fuse problems

I have a 1987 jeep cherokee. I just replaced the ignition lock cylinder in it and everything went well, but every time I turn on the lights to the dash it pops the fuse.

May have a light bulb out in the dash, that shorts and pops the fuse.

I'd say go back over (what you took apart) what you did and see if you find the problem. So you are talking about the actual key cylinder on the steering column right and nothing else?

If you can find out for sure I'll pull out my old 87 wiring diagrams when I get home and see where it goes.

I have them from my years as a Jeep mechanic, I don't think they are still available.

The one diagram I need I can't find. The reason I was looking was some of these had a key in light on the steering column that could be the problem or as I suspect the key in buzzer switch (white plastic thing with two brass colored blades) which has to be removed and reinstalled when doing a ignition lock cylinder on the column. If you didn't have this problem until after doing the key cylinder then I'm sure the problem is in the column.

Try Alldatadiy. They do a good job on electrical. It is 20 bucks or so for a year with unlimited downloads.

No not that's its before that one you take the steering wheel of and the little plastick cover behind it there is a little button like application right there you have to take out to take it apart. But I do know that part and it also has a little mettal clip with it so that part you sent me a picture of if it dodnt go in right could that cause it I thought I put it back the right way
