Radio pulled out. Why no gauges,windows,locks,heat..,now.

Asked by Nov 18, 2014 at 06:10 PM about the 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My son pulled out my radio.  Now no gauges, electric windows, locks, heat....don't work.
Compass only has lines.  Headlights and signal lights work. I tried the 50 amp fuse under
hood.  Being disabled, its hard to go through fuse box along passenger floor. Searced
forever to find which wires may have been disconnected.  My son is not handy with
electrical.  Perhaps when someone installed my radio, they messed things up.  There are
extra wires. Cannot afford a garage.  Help please.

Thank you. However, it was installed years ago by a young co-worker, with whom I no longer have contact with. I have not had problems until this recent incident. My son is just looking for a description of the wires he could re-attach.

remove radio check all wires behind radio and make shure none are cut if they are splice them together check ac controls then plug is under there then check fuses for each check fuse socket for voltage first
