Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee is not starting/rmp gauge and mph gauge

Today I went to start my car and found it would not start w/o my foot giving it gas. I would take my foot off the gas and the car would die. At the same time I notice my rpm gauge and mph gauge were not working? I don't know if the problems are connect or if it was a coincidence that they both start to act up at the same time. Thanks.
