Question about 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

All my gages will go out and on again.

The red airbag light come on then at spurratic times I lose all or some of my gages that come on and off all the time.
I am told it is my Clusters need worked on, I have had them worked on but after awhile it goes back to the same problem. I even replaced the whole system with other used parts, but I have the same results, and I have mechanics that do not know what to do.

Sounds like they are on the right track, the cluster or the wiring to the cluster may be at fault. Used parts are not always the answer. It may also be a BCM problem. Take the vehicle to the dealership, for about an hours labour they should be able to diagnose what the problem is.
Let me know how you make out.

2008 Chrysler Aspen - All gages will randomly drop to zero while driving, all warning lights will come on, gages go back to normal and airbag light stays on for a short time 4-5 seconds). Any idea wh

I would guess a bad ground wire. First check the battery terminals. Then check the black wire coming off the battery. Make sure this connects firmly will no dirt or rust in the way. If that doesn't work I'd think your had a problem with the ignition cylinder (where the key goes) that's much harder to work on though.

Why does my 2002 chevy impala not start when the airbag light is on?

The airbag light has absolutely noting to do with the engine starting unless it is because the airbag module is losing power at the same time that some engine component is losing power due to a defective ignition, battery, or ground circuit.

The best thing to do is to scan your computer network for possible fault codes that may lead you to the cause. Please note that I said "computer network", NOT engine control module. Most generic OBD code readers (like those used at many parts stores as a sales tool to sell you a bunch of stuff you don't need) cannot access anything but the continuous memory in the engine control need to scan ALL modules.

2006 Chev Trailblazer. Seems to be running fine then loses power, the airbag light comes on, then it picks back up and seems to run fine again.

1st things 1st, clean that throttle body. Clean with throttle body cleaner with the battery disconnected. Must be shiny like new. When finished drive with all the accesories OFF for about 5-7 miles, this way your computer will relearn the newly cleaned throttle body correctly.

As far as the airbag light, could be many things. You didn't mention this....does the airbag light go off when the power is restored? The airbag is nothing to mess with, if it goes on again, you can take it to a shop that can communicate with the airbag control module. Will narrow down exactly where the fault is.

My airbag indicator light stays on continuously on my 2008 Mercury Milan.

You need to fix this soon. First, I would try for free help, as I noticed your Milan is a 2008 model and it may be under Warranty (You get 3 or 4 Years) depending on mileage.

The Airbag Indicator light can mean several things. The Impact sensors behind the Bumpers can have a bad connection, the Chemical charge in the Airbag can be bad, or there is a bad connection somewhere inbetween.

Once its diagnosed, some parts like the Impact sensors can be sprayed with WD-40 and they will work again. Other parts like the firing mechanism for the Airbag is best left to experienced people.

Since anything is possible the Airbag may not work when you need it. Again, this may be a free repair if you take it to a Dealer.

Check gages light came on. the gas gage read 20 mi to empty. turned it off then on again and read 107 mi to empty. the engine soon died in the middle of traffic. Is it the battery???

The battery is one possible problem. However, the alternator charges the battery, and if that goes bad, the check gauges light will go on, in particular, the charge light will go on (red in color).

This is actually a very common problem. If the alternator is bad, it can cause the car to lose voltage over time, 30 to 40 minutes after the light goes on, the car will die if operated for that period of time with a fully charged battery, even.

Van runs, but I lose my speedomitor,fuel gage and temp gage

When it acts up try locking an unlocking the doors (do this a few times) with the switch on the door. If they start to work again you will most likely need to have the body control module replaced.
