HELP!! please-96 jeep cherokee 4x4 country blows 30amp fuse-no start at all
i have a 1996 jeep cherokee (country) model w/a 4.0litre engine, a few
months ago it died on me @ 12 midnight 75 miles from home so i was towed
back home and the next day when i could see what i was doin i found a 30amp
fuse blown under the hood in the fuse box so i replaced it and the jeep
started right up-yee haa-well a month l8tr it did the same thing but in
daylight so i opened the hood and replaced the fuse and as soon as i tried
to start it blew it again-well i fooled around on side of road for 45 min
and went thru 4 fuses that kept blowin-well the 5th one worked and i was on
the road again-well it was fine till a week ago and the fuse blew again and
now no matter what i do it keeps blowin the fuse-well a mechanic said it
was prolly the fuel pump so i changed it and still blows fuse-could it be
the ecu unit?
im at a loss here and have no vehicle to drive-well my wife has hers but she travels 100,s of miles a week and i am stuck ;-(
any 1 have any ideas????????? :doh:
I am having the same problem and am in the process of tracing the harness to all of the accessories on that circuit. Will let you know what I find
What's the fuse for?
I am having the same problem. have you figured it out? ANy help would be great. thanks
It might depend on when the vehicle was actually built (regardless of that
it's a 1996, since they started making 96's in June 95... you might want to
check your dealership to see if you fall in with this recall...

i had a 97 jeep cherokee and i looked all over to solve a fuse blowing issue...what i finally found causing the issue was the rear taillights were filling with water and blowing the fuse .. worth a look anyway :2cents:
I have recently tried to replace my engine control fuse on my 92 jeep cherokee, but it keeps blowing as soon as I turn my key before the engine even starts to crank. I'm thinking it is a short somewhere, but am not sure. If you know that there is a common problem with this or know how to fix it please reply as soon as possible.
I encounter the same problem with my 97 but after replacing the rear tailights I've had no problem last 4 months
Did anyone ever find a solution to this besides the tail lights (i.e. distributor, coil, etc). Please post if you have - thanks.
