problem #4

Cherokee 4WD

The fog lamps stopped working. Warranty had expired. Contacted dealer they stated that there was no re-call on this. Six months later when they were replacing the rotors on re-call, I said something to the mechanic about the lights. He stated that they knew about the problem. He asked if I ever used the power outlet for a phone. I stated yes! he said that when using the outlet it was melting the wires to the fog lamp switch making it unoperable. Still the switch has not been replaced. I'mnot the only person here at work that has that problem. Another fire fighters lamps stopped working just after his warranty was up, and his was never replaced either..
