Some of the Jeep Cherokee's minor maintenance problems can be resolved without the need of a third party's assistance. Most of these repairs can be done in a small amount of time with little mechanical work needed.
Maintenance Indicator Light
If the maintenance indicator light comes on intermittently and there is no noticeable fault, the fault may be with the actual indicator light itself. If it is hard to determine whether the indicator light is at fault, simply replace the bulb.
Onboard Diagnostics Test
When the Cherokee has problems with performance and handling, it is a good idea to use the onboard diagnostics test to check for faults. Running the diagnostics test will locate problems such as high emissions or any transmission faults there might be.
Faulty Head Lamps
Faulty headlamps in the Jeep Cherokee may be the result of a loose bulb or a blown fuse. Make sure the bulbs are fitted properly inside the lamp. If this is not the source of the problem, check the Cherokee fuse box to make sure the headlamp fuse is in good working order. If it looks burnt or damaged, simply replace with a new fuse. Otherwise, replace the headlamp bulb.
