Jeep Cherokee Under Hood Fuse Box Diagram (1984-1996)

A fuse diagram is an illustration that marks all the important parts of the electrical circuit of the fuse box. This diagram is helpful in the case of identifying malfunctions due to blown or faulty fuses. Owners of Jeep Cherokee models built from 1984-1996 can use this diagram to easily troubleshoot and repair electrical issues in their cars.

The diagram marks all the fuses and relays in the car along with a table that details their function. This makes troubleshooting easy as Jeep Cherokee owners can identify the fuses that are causing the exact electrical problem in their car and take action accordingly.

How to Identify the Fuse Box Location?

There are two fuse boxes in a Jeep Cherokee. One is located under the hood and the other is located underneath the compartment. Fuse boxes are relatively easy to find as they will stand out with all of the colorful fuses arranged on the box. Check the owner’s manual if you have trouble locating the fuse box.

How to Understand the Fuse Box Diagram?

The fuse diagram is a helpful tool for diagnosing the problems in your car, especially electrical problems. The fuse diagram marks the fuses with numbers and the table gives details about those numbered fuses.

When an electrical problem occurs in the car such as the fuel pump not functioning properly, you can find the fuel pump fuse relay from the table and the diagram and change that fuse.

This makes troubleshooting electrical problems and solving them easier for the owners of Jeep Cherokee. Fuses are inserted into the electrical circuits to protect the components from getting damaged due to accidental voltage or power surges.

How Often Should I Check My Fuse Box?

You do not need to check the fuse box unless there are electrical problems. Fuses either work properly or get melted down and break the circuit, there are no in-between. You should only check the fuse box when a particular electrical component stops working. 

Can I Use Any Replacement Fuses and Relays?

No, you cannot use any replacement fuses and relays for the blown-out fuses and relays in your car. The replacement fuses and relays have to match their Amps with the fuses and relays you will be replacing. Use the diagram and the table to find out the features of the fuse or relay you are trying to replace and match accordingly.
