Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Ive searched everywhere and even downloaded a manual online for a 2005 jeep cherokee laredo with the 4.7l v8, i recently put a dvd/cd player in it that also has navigation, but in oreder for the navigation to worki have to hook a wire up to the vehicles speed sensor wire, i need to know which color wire that is behind the guage cluster where the speedometer is.. if yuou can help i would be forever indebted to you
There is o actual single wire carying the vehicle speed signal to the cluster. the speedometer receives a signal over what is called the can bus system. the wheel speed sensors send a signal to the antilock brake module which in turns sends a signal to the pcm. the pcm then sends a signal over the can bus system to various controllers including the cluster. you can not tap into this wires as it will effect the entire system

Hi rueddie , i have been looking at this instrument cluster schematics , and i don't see per say a speed sensor input , that information is interpreted by the pcm from the transmission sensors and probably converted into a different type of bus signal to the cluster display . how ever , i think you might be able to accomplish your mission by tapping in between the trans and pcm , i don't know exactly what you need to do for your nav system , hopefully your directions specifically state tap into speed sensor output or something . the pcm is located at the right rear of the engine compartment , see picture of the important part of the schematic , i could send you the whole picture if you like but this is the piece of circuitry your describing .
i would figure your looking for pin 32 dark green / brown wire output sensor , but your on your own there. if this is correct you could tap that wire and run wire thru firewall somewhere into your nav unit . if i'm totally off base please don't rate me , if you need more info please ask . good luck .
