Fuses on 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

My problem was that the back up lights. the turn signals and the visual display all went out at the same time. The shop replaced a fuse they said was under the fuse box on the passenger side. Does anybody know about this fuse? Exactly where it is and what type, amperage. This fixed the problem too. I can find nothing about this fuse anywhere. Any ideas?? And what might make this fuse blow out. The shop was installing a lockup solenoid and harness. And they said they did not need to disconnect the battery cable. 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

Thanks.

Thanks.
Wait so the shop blew the fuse or they just fixed your blown fuse as they were installing a lockup solenoid/harness?

Do you still have the owners manual? Mines outside and really dont want to go get it but it shows which fuse in that panel goes to what.


terrible picture, sorry blurry, but this is the fuse panel interior of the 95. I'd assume it's the same in the 96-98?

Lot's of different things that blow fuses.

93-95 has Fuse Block located at right end of dash.

96-98 has Junction Block located behind right side kick panel.

Blown Junction Block Fuse#6 (15 amp) would do it. But that circuit only has power with the key ON.

Perhaps they shorted the harness.

When I took it to the shop these three things worked fine and when I picked it up they did not work. So I assume the shop in some way blew the fuse. They took the responsibility to find the problem and fix it. Stating it was a fuse UNDER the fuse block on the passenger side kickplate with all the other fuses in it. I thnk maybe not disconnecting the battery and having to drop the valve box and disconnect some electrical plugs maybe blew the fuse, I don't know. They said they had no idea either. The electrician at the shop tested all the fuses under the hood while I watched and also in the block on the passenger side kickplate.They all tested OK. The fuse he found and replaced he said was not visable until he removed the fuse block on the passenger side. I was not there at the time it was found and replaced.

KoreaZJ, so the #6 15a fuse is seen after the cover is off or must you take off the whole kick panel. This fuse blown would cause the back up lights, the turn signals and the visual displays to not work? Thanks

No hidden fuses, just remove kick panel.

With key ON, Junction Block Fuse#6 (15 amp) supplies power to...

Electronic flasher (turn signals), VIC, DRL, Neutral Safety Switch (at tranny for reverse lamps), overhead console, and auto day/night rear view mirror.

No hidden fuses.

KoreaZJ, what great pictures. That answers my question 100%. I bet they did short the harness because they didn't disconnect the battery during the install. I asked the tec and he said it was not necessary to disconnect it. Taking off the kick panel is the trick. There is a lot more under there than under just the fuse block door that unsnaps. The pictures are so good I am going to see if I can print them. Thanks for solving the mystery for me.

KoreaZJ, Do you happen to know this. On the diagram you posted of the front of junction block what does CB3 20A control? CB1 20A and CB2 20A if you might know? Thanks for sharing your knowledge with me, awesome help.
