  • Square Headlights Question

    A buddy is having problems with his dashlights and taillights going out. He has checked all his fuses and not found the culprit but did discover that some of the fuses don't do what they are labeled for. His Haynes manual isn't very detailed so he is scratching his head over this. Does anybody have a FSM for 95YJ (2.5L) that I could take a peek at so we can figure out what is what with his fuseblock?

        Check the battery and see what the voltage is. If it seems high, start up the jeep and check the alternator for overcharging.

          Sorry battalion14, I've got that model but not that problem. I'm just hoping somebody comes up with the FSM, I want to get alook at it, too.

            I have a DC FSM for 95 YJ/XJ. What is it you are specifically looking for? I am in York PA and takin' a peek a this manual is going to require a long drive. If I can get into the office later this morning, I may be able to scan some of the suspect circuits. Let me know and I can post here or email.


            I just re-read your original post. Check on the left of the driver side dash, there is a lighting harness that plugs into the back of the headlight switch and dimmer assembly. Mine came loose after working on other stuff in that area and gave me similar symptoms.

              Thanks for the idea Leadfoot, we will check that out.

              We will check out the lighting harness as well NiteDog. I was hoping to see an electrical diagram of the fuseblock and where everything is supposed to go. Right now it doesn't seem like many of the labeled fuses are actually for what they say they are and he has no idea if the previous owner had messed around with it. If it is too much trouble don't worry about it. If it isn't too much trouble my e-mail address is solaryellowATgmailDOTcom. Thanks again!

                Jeep Rio, I'm theguy that might need the fuse block. I tried to pm you but I am not sure if it went through or not. Could you e-mail me at ncjeepinyj@yahoo.com with any more info or pics if you have any. Is it a stock one or aftermarket?

                  make sure you check the plug in the back of the fuse panel, its in the engine compartment, and acually plugs right through the firewall, and into the fuse box. you have to remove the plastic cover from it, and pull on each wire, (gently), mine had many corosion issues. you may find that the previous owner did the same, and didnt get the wires in the correct hole.

                  i just drilled out the plug, where the faulty wires were, and ran a new one through it, directly to fuse block, with a spade terminal.
