1998 jeep cherokee, 4.0L auto 4x4
I have recently been fighting an issue with the #16 IOD fuse in the PDC under the hood. The problems started with all gauges occasionally going dead and the air bag light coming on, but a well placed smack to the dash always brought them back it has been this way since I bought it 2 years ago. Then recently the radio would not turn on unless I opened either of front doors and closed them. Also pushing the dome light on or opening the visor mirror for light would turn the radio on. Now I currently have no gauges (cluster still lights up), no radio, no cargo/ dome lights, no highbeams (blue indicator still illuminates) or door chime. I can replace the fuse but the second I open the drivers or passengers door the fuse pops again. Power windows still operate fine, locks only work while jeep is running. I've un plugged the under hood light, front dome light, pulled the #16(cargo lamp, courtesy lamps, radio, instrument cluster, under hood lamp, transmission control module) and #17(radio) fuses in the kick panel with no change.Any insight is appreaciated!
