The problem sounds intermittent, if you put volt meter on the battery while it is at that 19volt mark/reading(on the gauge cluster) you will be able to see if it is true. If your alternator is really charging over 16volts the lights should be getting brighter then usual and/or they are burning out. Find out ASAP, if the alternator has a defective voltage regulator, it needs to be replaced. Prolong use will damage components.

I have a 98 Wrangler - same problem. Dash gauges would work, then out (airbag light came on). Then it would work for a week or two than out.
Tried looking at fuses, wires, aftermarket radio problems, etc.
When I pulled the instrument cluster out of the dash, I noticed a lot of goop (lubricant) on one of the cluster plugs. So I wiped it off with a paper towel and now everything works. Maybe too much goop was shorting stuff out? Anyway, I'll know in a couple of months if that was my problem or not assuming my gauges keep working uninterrupted.
