Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

95 Grand Cherokee center column data screen resets after shut off

The message panel that shows date & time, miles to next oil change and other messages continually resets to the default 12:00 am Sun Jan 01 and flashes continuously each time I restart the engine after turning off the ignition after driving the vehicle. The battery in the vehicle is almost 5 years old and works well. The vehicle starts up / turns over in cold weather (latest temp -4) with no problem. I suspect an electrical problem but I'm not sure where to begin looking.

I had the same problem with my 1995 grand cherokee. I had to remove the message center and resolder the connections where the plugs go into the back of it. Not hard to do if you are used to soldering small connections, if not, take it out and bring it to someone who is, like a tv repair shop.

On my 2000 jeep grand cherokee information center is displaying perform service i would like to know what i have to do to fix it


The perform service message tells you when you need to change oil. To reset it turn the key on and press the step button until miles to service is displayed (it should say 0 underneath). Then press and hold the reset button until it changes from 0 to 3,000 miles. Then start the vehicle. The message should no longer be displayed.

Perform service jeep grand cherokee 2005 this message is appearing in the message center


Actually the newer cherokees are a little more complicated, it's not a reminder for an oil change. It is for an emssions service that should be performed according to the dealer. Here is the rest procedure

Turn ignition to on position, but do not start.
Depress brake pedal fully twice.
depress excellerator very slowly twice
Turn ignition off & that will reset the perform service indicator.
I am mechanic & we are getting frustrated because the dealers do not want to release this info to anyone, they want your money! Can you believe if you did not get them to perform the service they charge you a 1 hour shop rate??

No display on service center display


If it is working it will tell you if any doors, hatches are open, it tells you when your next service is due, If you are in 4WD or not. On the all time 4wd it tells you if you are in "Lo" . Mostly shows date and time. Check your grounds and power source fuses. It may need replaced. Also if something is wrong it makes a really annoying sound and it desplays a message. " Servire 4WD Switch" for exaple. I hope that helps . I just bought mine and just trying to fix it up for hunting. good luck Alex
