Headlights on. Taillights off. Backlights fine.

Asked by Jul 26, 2015 at 04:48 PM about the 1993 Jeep Cherokee 4 Dr STD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1993 jeep Cherokee. I've replaced the
switch twice. When I pull it part way out my
drive and taillights come on. When I pull it
the rest of the way the headlights come on
and the drive and taillights go out! ?????

1 Answer

We had a similar issue with our 91 yj, we replaced the switch but the tail lights continued to act up. We knew someone who could read wire diagrams and went by what was in the Chilton book, we had to route the wires a certain way in order for them to work properly because the old wires had worn and faded due to the age and we're hard to figure out which wire went where.
