First, its always better to tak ethe time to fix it right, thats just my oppinion. Second, this it one of the easiest cars in the world to work on.

Ok, fuel gauge is Pink, but it should go through the fuel tank first and then come from there to the gauge.

Temp gauge is light green and comes right off of the block.

There is a jumper betwen the two.

If both are not working, then it is going to be the thing that they have in common. In this case, check the fuse first, because they share the fuse. If the fuse is blown, then you need to figure out why. so it doesnt happen again. If the fuse is the problem, then that will be easier than installing a new gauge.

I have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee and the fuse for the parking lights keeps getting blown..(like within 10 seconds of replacing it.)im using the right kind of fuse,so i dont really know what to do now..

Sounds like one of your bulb sockets is shorted out. I have seen bulbs almost melted in their sockets, on grand cherokees in the past. You will have to check all the brake light and bulb sockets to see if they are shorted.
