i have a 93 cherokee, when i pull the switch for the lights, the running lights only work when i put the switch in a certain spot, when i turn the headlights on only the headlights come on. i can get all the lights to work but not all at the same time. i replaced the switch in the dash and i cant find the problem??

Whoa calm down there sparky, Rolling Eyes We all work for a living...well most of us Finger ..you know who you are rofl so anywho we dont live on this forum 24/7 so be patient.

now that weve started off on the wrong foot lets see if we can put this behind us and help with your problem.

This is a unique problem. Unfortunetly this isnt a common occourance that can be easily pointed at and answered for you. Electrical nightmares are just that... a nightmare.

Most likely you have a bad ground somewhere. Are you the origanal owner? Have you or a previous owner tied anything into any of the electrical harness. Look for clusters of wires or loose electrical tape that dont look "factory". Factory wiring is usually done neatly so any amature hacking is easy to spot.

Chase all the wires and look for anything frayed, missing insulation, corrosion, loose wires, broken stranded factory wires etc. Being a 13 yo vehicle its most likely something like the above going on, it happens. Pull apart any snap together connectors and look for corrision, excess dirt, missing connecters. Again on older vehicles it happens.

Im sorry if I can pinpoint the problem for you, like I said....this isnt a know issue that Ive heard of so no easy fix for you.

Good luck
