Need Fuse Box Diagram/Layout (under dash)

Hello everyone,

I'm brand new here, my girlfriend just got a 1984 CJ7 and we are looking for a Fuse Box Diagram or layout. The headlights won't work. There are no other problems with our Jeep! It runs great and there are no forseeable problems in the future. We got LUCKY!

I have been searching online for this for a couple hours now and need to get to other things. I hope someone might be able to send me a diagram or lead me a link that works.

Thank you for your time.

Give this a try.

Also, at any local auto parts store you can pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual that is a good starter guide to repairs on your Jeep.

Also, welcome to the JF. There is a wealth of information on here. Learn to use the "search" feature at the top of the screen.

And just in case someone hasn't told you, and even though you a CJ that is apparently in good shape......J.E.E.P. = Just Empty Every Pocket.

To try some fixes, pull each fuse, one by one and check them. Next check your light switch, it might actually be bad. Are the bulbs bad. Do the other "parking lamps" work when the headlights are turned on.

Welcome and have fun out there!

TO make thing easier, there is no fuse in the fuse box for the headlight. It's a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch. The most common probblem with headlights is the dimmer switch on the floor. When this goes bad, you might onlyy get high beams or no lights at all.

I will second the dimmer switch being the most common failure. The aftermarket switches are pure garbage.

If that isn't it, the fuse link is located on the fender solenoid, where the battery cable connects to it. You will find a few 8" or so pieces of wire with fat rubber tube connectors where they join the harness pieces.

Usually when the breaker goes, the headlights flash on and off.
