Fuse Panel Replacement


Recommended Posts

Anyone here, ever replace their entire fuse panel? If so, please explain in full detail. My Comanche: 87, AX15 <--- now, 4wd, 4.0 liter - Renix, Laredo.

Is this a good alternative? Painless Performance Products Universal Fuse Block 18-Circuit. Part Number: 764-30003.

I’m not sure why the panel would need to be replaced unless it was ruined by brake fluid like the previous owner did to my XJ .
I don’t remember other swaps requiring the fuse panel to be changed. Plenty have put automatic dash harness in to 5 speed XJ/mj with no issues, I got s automatic 4.0 dash harness/ fuse panel to work with a 1986 2.8 engine harness just to get a fuse panel with no chance of brake fluid damage.

In my experience if the fuse panel needs to be replaced I find another Renix era dash harness, I have no proof but I think 1986-89 maybe 1990 are the same bulk head plug.

I’ve have no experience with the pAinless wiring solution so it could be a ok option too.

No, that Painless is not compatible with yours as a replacement. 

 

 

see page 4

 

 

See vid I posted, actually watch it. 

 

 

You will find your fuse block at Painless, the fuse block in the vid above is your block, so, I know that Painless has it, call them. That said, I highly recommend that you find a 87-90 XJ AUTO! and find a good block that you remove yourself, it's the act of removing the good one that advances your learning curve before you go stripping yours out.....besides the fact that you'll save $200. 

 

Find a cardboard box, a five gallon recliner, and tell the rest of the world to go pound for 2 hours................one wire at a time, NO distractions. 

 

Regardless of what anyone else says, I recommend you solder your clips. 

 

Clips can be found at Dell City. I ordered 20 singles and 10 of the 4 clip strips, the 4s can be cut down to 2s and 3s.

Why does the fuse panel need to be replaced? Why not replace with another Cherokee/Comanche fuse panel?

 

And who swapped in the AX-15? Is the transmission change related to the fuse panel issue?

Corrosion, sometime during its lifetime, either the windshield leaked or the clutch master cylinder leaked. 

 

No relation at all!
