1997 Jeep Wrangler 2.5L 4 cyl...

Hi everyone,

I recently just bought my first wrangler and love it! However, I noticed today that it did not come with an owners manual. I noticed this because I was checking my fuses under the hood and noticed that some of them are blown or not working. I called a few Jeep dealers to see if they could fax me a page of what the fuses are for and what they do, but they couldn't. So I was just wondering if any1 has a printout or anything that will tell me what the fuses are for. I have numbers, and colors, but the fuse box does not say what the fuse does. It says "read owners manual". I need to know what does what and have no way of finding it out. Thanks alot guys, hope ya can help!

Get a flashlight and you will find that the fuse box is labeled at each fuse position. The labels are cryptic but usable.

i am from Lancaster, and also it does not say it on the fuse box, i looked 2 times. The relays and some of the smaller fuses are labeled but the bigger fuses on top are not. It says refer to owners manual.

^thanks that helped alot. however, the fuse that was blown was #5, and the other 2 (#7, & #15) were not even in. therefore i am not sure if i should put #7 back in, or just all 3 of them. do you know exactly what power outlet, aux coolant fan relay, or heated back light relay do? meaning what all does the power outlet control? i have a electric fan so i dont think ill need #7, and i have no idea what a heated back light would do?

in my factory service manual 7,8,12,18,21 should be empty

fuse 15 is for the rear window defogger on hard tops and is empty on soft tops

fuse 5 is the cigarette lighter / accessory position fuse

replace number 5 the rest you don't need...#5 can blow because of someone being stupid with something they plugged into the cigar lighter. seeing you just bought it, i would just replace it and see if it blows again before i looked any further

The #5 fuse is for the cigarette lighter. #7 Sounds to be for an electric A/C cooling fan. #15 sounds to be the rear defroster, but I'm not certain. My 1998 FSM lists it as such, but they vary from year to year, so it might be different.

What you have listed above is verbatim from the 1997 Owner's Manual. As I don't have a specific 1997 FSM, I can't check the wiring diagrams to verify either #7 or #15.

Is yours specifically a 1997 FSM? If so, this wouldn't be the first time that the Owner's Manual and the FSM weren't in strict agreement with one another.
