Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Radio, dome lights and EVIC power problem

This just started yesterday:
With key switch in the AC position the radio won’t work when any dome lights are turned on. It also momentarily turns off when the power locks are pressed. The power locks won’t work with more than one dome light on. With more than one dome light on all dome lights dim. The EVIC won’t work unless the engine is running and the head lights are turned on. The EVIC will momentarily turn on and off. The radio only comes on with the key in the AC position.

    Never mind. I pulled out the suspect fuses this time instead of trying to look at them while still plugged in and I found fuse 8 was partially blown. It was blown in a way that metal was still making partial contact. After changing the fuse all is working fine. Just a little worried about what caused it to blow.

I found a paritally blown fuse. When the fuse blew metal pieces ended up partially making contact. After replacing the fuse everything worked great.

My sister has a 2000 chevy cavalier b4 the door chime and the interior dome light worked now they both dont, we replaced the bulb and fuse to no avail and I have no clue what's wrong with the chime.


the chime actually is done with the radio. the front drivers door speaker. so if the radio works and the front left speaker works. then more then likely you have a defective door switch. located in the door jam that controls the dome light

I have a 1999 Olds 88 that won't start.


If you have no warning lights, either a fuse is blown or the key switch is not powering the computer and the rest of the ignition system.
If you check the fuses and all are in good condition, I would suspect the ignition switch.

2001 Chev Malibu. Turn key on to start car, won't start. No warning lights on no lights on gauge panel. Radio works, dome light work.


check the ground leg to your engine.. it runs off the neg. battery terminal. will connect to frame and engine.. pull it off, wire brush it put it back.. you radio will work, 'cause it draws much less current, and is grounded in dash.

Lights, radio and powerdoor locks work, turn key to start car nothing happens


If you had said the radio did not work, I would say it was the key switch or a large fuse or fuseable link.
But the radio is powered thru the key switch.
The problem could still be the key switch or a major fuse, I would check all of the fuses then power at the key switch.
Also check the ground connections.

Engine won't turn over


This is most likely the battery, sometimes you can have enough power for dome lights and radio, but not enough "Cranking Amps" to start the vehicle. Charge it, or take it to an Auto zone or something. They will charge it and test it for free.

2003 alero steering won't lock and nothing happens when you turn the key in the ignition


If the security light keeps flashing,you might as well do a reset.
Be sure to turn off all the accesories including the radio before you start the process.
Insert the key to the ignition switch and turn the key to ON position without starting the car.
leave it ON until the flashing light (security) stops.It will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
As soon the flashing stop,turn the key to OFF
position and start the cart.
Hope this help.

Dome light won't work exept by the override switch-sometimes


I seem to be having the exact opposite problem. I have a 99 chevy blazer and the dome light will not turn off unless I push the override button in. The radio does turn off as soon as I turn off the ignition key. If I leave the dome override button out, the dome light will constantly stay on even while I am driving. It used to work fine. Every now and them it starts working properly, but it hasn't worked right for a long time now. I tested all the switches and they all seem ok. They rear hatch is also closed. Does anyone know what the problem can be and how to fix it?

Interior dome light stays on when driving.


Sounds like the dome light has been turned on using the switch on the dash. Most of the time the dash dimmer switch is set up so that if the dimmer is in the maximum position, the dome light can be turned on. If the dome light has been turned on like this, it still will turn off after some time to save your battery. Then when you unlock the door with the remote, it goes back to the same state it was when it was left in - "ON". Check for this switch on the dash, and roll it to get it off of the "ON" position.
