2015 Cherokee Headlights
Tan Turn Signal Bulb Socket
1/4 Turn Counterclockwise
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fifth generation (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and probably also the refreshed 2018 model year) Jeep Cherokee in changing a burnt out front turn signal or front side marker light bulb.

Owners of other Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, Fiat and RAM vehicles such as the Compass, Renegade, Wrangler, Grand Cherokee, Patriot, 500, Town & Country, 200, 300, Pacifica, Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Journey, Grand Caravan, RAM 1500, C/V Tradesman and ProMaster Van may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The compatible replacement light bulb part numbers are as follows: Front Turn Signal # 7440A (or WY21W) and Front Side Marker # 194.

No tools are needed to access and replace the light bulbs.

Bulb Socket Removed
Pull Out Old Light Bulb
WY21W or 7440A
The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the side of the SUV with the burnt out light bulb.

Rotate the tan plastic base of the front turn signal light bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise before pulling it straight out of the housing.

Pull the old light bulb straight out of the socket.

Push In New 7440A Bulb
Empty Bulb Housing
1/4 Turn Clockwise - Lock
Push a new amber colored number 7440A or WY21W bulb straight in to the socket.

Re-insert the socket in to the housing and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.

Small Side Marker Socket
Disconnect LED Plug
1/4 Turn Counterclockwise


The small black and grey plastic side marker light bulb socket is located near the outer edge of the housing.

For better access to the socket, I recommend disconnecting the green plastic power plug for the LED light strip.

Press the release tab on the green electrical connector before pulling it straight off.

Then rotate the side marker bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise before pulling it straight out of the housing.

SM Socket Removed
Pull Out Old Light Bulb
Push In New 194 Bulb
Pull the old sidemarker bulb straight out of the socket.

Push in a new number 194 bulb straight in to the socket.

1/4 Turn Clockwise Lock
Push On LED Power Plug
Test New Light Bulbs
Re-insert the side marker bulb socket in to the housing and rotate it 1/4 turn clockwise to secure it in place.

Push the green plastic electrical connector for the LED light strip back in to place.

To test the new light bulbs, turn on the headlights and activate the hazard signals.
