The speedometer, tachometer, mileage, and gas gauge don't work. I've been told it would be wiring, and think that myself - but don't know where to look + I don't want to pay Jeep alot just to get it fixed if I could figure it out myself. I got a different dash for it, thinking that maybe the circuit board or w/e went bad or something but that wasn't the problem. So.. does anyone know a website that would display a picture - or even you giving me some advice on how to fix it would be terrific.

Re: Gauges not working..
Check your fuse box for lose wiring in the back and, check the fuses as well. if the problem still persist, then, check the cables on the back that run to the actual motor. these cables may have been severed due to age.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The "cluster" means all of the things you see under the plastic cover in front of the driver, the 'gauges'. The term is a reference to the 'instrument cluster' including speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, idiot lights, temperature gauge, everything. Get a second independent opinion since this is very unusual. Most likely you have a blown fuse.
check for a blown fuse in the fuse panel and if its not that pull the gauge cluster out of the dash and check the power and ground going to it cause most of the time its a bad ground wire or power wire cause people tend to kick wires under the dash on accident or they get worn or come apart
Sounds like the body control module has gone bad. It has a relay that caries considerable current to all of these accesories and wears out. It can also be a solder joint on the circuit board where this relay mounts. Hope this helps, Robert
I don`t know this particular car but I don`t think the dissy has anything to do with the fuel gauge. Did the fuel gauge work perfectly before?? If so, you`ll probably find that you`ve disturbed a connector which goes to the sender unit. It`s very easy to do, I`ve done it myself and it`s VERY annoying to find you`ve sorted one fault only to find that you`ve caused another fault. Just go over everything that you`ve touched and done to the car. Did you short something out when you were replacing the cap, if so, you`ll probably find that a fuse has failed and it`s not just the gauge that doesn`t work. All the best, Ian
there are rechargeable aa batteries that wear out over few years and have to be replaced behind the tach on some cars.. I just did it on a BMW and the tach started waorking again as well as the gas mileage indicatoor gauge
