Default Fuse Locations for 98 XJ

Anyone have a drawing for what fuse is which, for a 1998 XJ?

Maybe could snap a digital photo. I believe the location chart is located in the owners manual.

Unfortunately, my XH has no manual with it, and its got several things not working (horn, dome like, fog lights, hazards..).. the PO installed an amp and the wire ducks under the weatherstripping which let some water leak during heavy rains. The leak was right next to the fuse block, I'm curious if it blew a couple due to the water, as those particular fuses don't blow that often..

But.. I need to know where they are, to start figuring out wahts going on..

If anyone has the diagram and can snap a nice digital photo, I'd much appreciate it. Can email to haggar1850@comcast.net, if you aren't able to upload it somewhere.

Or even just list them in order?

Thanks

Jason IIRC that fuse will be in fuse box under the hood. It should be the one in a yellow holster that is a quick pull/push for dealer prep. Atleast for the dome light.

Default If this hasn't been done by tonight...

I'll get my owners manual and/or Hayne's and see if we can't write it up or take pics or something after I get home from work. (And before I put my tow hooks on...)

the cover for the fuse block has the layout printed in the plastic on the inside, if you have that the rest should be easy. also if you have a test light you can probe the fuses without removing them and see if they have power on both sides.

No, the fuse box panel has a note that says: See Owners Manual for Fuse Locations"

There are at least 4 different circuits out. Yeah, I can just yank every fuse and replace any bad ones. But I'd like to have the locations for future troubleshooting.

Heh, I think I have a test light somewhere.... next to the true RMS Fluke and the Tektronix digital Oscope I use for most diagnostics, its decidedly quaint..
