alright, this is very helpful. I have been scratching my head over a few things that don't work in my 1995 Cherokee since I bought it in September 2009. a lot of work needs to be done on the Jeep, but I need help on a couple things listed below.
-compass/trip display in the overhead console where lamps do work
the other day when I needed to defrost the rear window I noticed the bleach smell which moments later turned into a burning electrical smell. had to drive with the windows down on a cold day to clear out the smoke. this finally forced me to check the fuse blocks.
while your average Cherokee's fuse block is under the dashboard on the passenger side, mine was on the driver's side bolted to the firewall.
inspecting it, I found a melted fuse for the defroster. it's a 10A in #18 on the left when it should have been a 25A.
I also noticed another 10A fuse instead of 30A in #16, but at this point I don't have power seats and nothing is hooked up to the tow hitch.
at the same time I removed the dashboard. I found a couple of components attached to it, including another fuse block which I am not familiar with.
as well as this component on the passenger side.
what are these for? what about the display in the overhead console? I would like to get that one working. back to the fuse block on the firewall, the round socket in the lower left is empty. is it supposed to have a fuse in it? I am guessing it is for the door chimes...
help a brutha out, please?
