Hi Ed, I also have a Jeep YJ Wrangler and the design of the connector into the gauge housing isn't very good! If you take the plastic dash housing off the gauge area and then take the housing out of the metal dash you will see where the connector plugs in or in your case should be plugged in! It sounds like the connector has lost contact or has come out of the housing all together. It really is a simple process! There are phillips head screws on the top and bottom of the dash cover. Remove them and the cover will come off. There are small plastic tabs on the sides of it that help hold it tight, be careful not to break them off! Then there are more screws that hold the plastic housing into the metal dash. Remove them and you will be able to see behind the gauges. Remove the connector and then re-insert it back into the housing. Make sure it snaps in securely. At this point you can turn the key to the on (not the start!) position and see if the gauges activate. Re-assemble in the reverse order and you should be good!

I hope this helps,

Got an 97 jeep wrangler the check gauge light well come on then the charging gauge quits, if u start it back up willl work for a while then the same thing

It's possible that the altenator is worn out ( brushes worn down ) The action of starting the engine vibrates the altenator and the brushes contac for awhile. after it quits try wrapping on the altenator with a stick and see if it comes on. If it does take the altenator to the store with you and traded it in for a rebuilt unit.

The whole circuit board on my 1993 jeep wrangler went out. any way to fix it without replacing the whole thing??

So you are assuming the board is bad.....Jeep gauge clusters are notorious for problems at the plug behind the board. Sometimes you can get it working just by giving the dash a good whack with your hand right above the gauges.(not kidding) If that works, best thing to do is remove the cluster and spray contact cleaner on the pins and contacts.. In extreme cases you can slightly twist the pins very slightly to make them fit tighter. (last resort).

My 93 jeep wrangler 4 cylinder temp gauge doesnt work right. when driving the gauge reads 0 when i step on the gas the gauge moves to the right temp. i have installed a new therm. new water pump new...

depending on how fast, this happens, could be an air lock in cooling syste, or a bad head gasket, or head. does the gauge ever go too high? can you hear gurgling in the rad, and does it ever push out coolant?
