I've been here over 2 years
I constantly watch the "Jeep" forum as I wait for another CJ 5, 7, or Scramble "victim" to arrive (few and far between) This is the area I know best.
I also try to answer those who get skipped over, or get things started, if it's late, sorta like "Triage" for another expert to be prepared for. And are within my capabilities, sometimes get in over my head!
Another can still jump in!
Like I said, been here a while, I read and try to learn from things that shoot thru here.
I have noticed that Cherokees sometimes have problems with wires breaking in the "pivot" at the door hinge, where the wire harness into the door bends. Whether this one might apply or not, I've seen several come thru where wires beside/ below/ inside/ next to the driver's "door step"? "Trim" on the floor? Once it's removed, it reveals wires that are broken and seemingly too far apart, to have been connected.I think they said it was a "expansion/ contraction" problem, and the wires could EZily have extensions soldered back in.
You may also run a search in our "search box" use key multiple words like Cherokee, wires, solder, and systems you are having troubles with. REVISING THE SEARCH WILL GET YOU DIFFERENT RESULTS. Sometimes you will luck up and get a solution from time gone by, Finally found by the "Question Asker" not by the expert!
One other suggestion I might offer, is to actually remove fuses and replace them several times, thus sorta scraping off possible corrosion and themselves and their "slots", finally re-install using "DIELECTRIC GREASE"
DOWN HER IN S.C, WE KNOW WHAT HOT IS TOO. BUT I SUSPECT THE HUMIDITY, CAUSES THE CORROSION PROBLEM ON THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION STUFF AROUND HERE (THE SILVER, KINDA TURNS WHITE OR MILKY). BOTH OF MY JEEPS HAVE EXPERIENCED IT, OTHER FAMILY VEHICLES, AND JUST VISITING THE AUTO PARTS STORE, I SEE OTHER FOLKS EXPERIENCING IT.
Let me/ us know whats happening
Someone else may be along soon!
