Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 1998 jeep cherekee sport 4L 4x4

As I got up to 70 plus KM or more a loud klicking noise from the instrument cluster would appear - it sounded like the old unlubricated cables on very old vehicles.... click, click, click over and over again and it got more rapid as the vehicle increased speed. So to fix the problem I got a 2nd hand cluster from a dealer in Alabama for $125 - I put it in and all work so well... no noise. One thing is not write - on the upper left corner of the cluster you have on the old one washer fluid light, security, then cruise.... on the 2nd one you have security, wahser fluid then cruise (in a nut shell only washer fluid light and security light indicators are positioned in the reverse order) as such the fluid light stays on all the time - washer tub is full and the old one when replaced back in the jeep does not light up the fluid light. What can I do? can I reverse wires to the back of the cluster to fix this problem... that is if I can find out which one is which.....

You can either find the correct cluster, drive yourself crazy re-wiring, or use the 'ole roll of black electrical tape and cover the lights so they don't annoy you. Just make sure that the important stuff (engine warning etc) is working.

Check for bad harness connection Under the dash at the back of instrument cluster housing. Make sure connectors are plugged in completely. Check all fuses located under dash (drivers side) Consult your owners manual for fuse legend.

I doubt its a short. a short to power would mean something is getting power besides through the fuse and your battery would die. I short to ground would cause the fuse to blow. my guess would be some device that is controlled by this fuse is malfunctioning. if you can try and unplug devices like the radio amplifier and see if the noise is removed.

best of luck

You are wanting to build a "franken-jeep" and you are wanting somebody to tell you how to do it? I have 2 words for you... GOOD LUCK! You should probably try a Jeep forum someplace where they talk about doing stuff like that all the time.

I have a 1998 jeep cherekee sport that the windows (front and back) work from the drivers side door but don't work from any other door. what do you think that the problem might be?


sounds like a wiring problem. trace wires. check power at all window switches. by a manual and look at the wiring diagrams find out what should do what when the switch is pushed and test it.

Instrument cluster lights don't work. Fuses and bulbs are good.


feed wire for the lights may have failed or the circuit on the board may have gone. if you remove the cluster you can put a supply to the bulb circuit (carefully) and check if it is the circuit. If it's ok you can run a new feed to the cluster from your lights. Job done.

The gage cluster


Had the same problem on my wife's 1999 Cherokee.  I had to take the entire left side of the dash off to get the instrument cluster out.  You need to unplug it and clean the plug and the instrument cluster itself off and then put everything back together.  Worked for me and haven't had a problems since.  One note: the headlight switch has to be taken off and it's kinda hard.  You have to get up underneath it and  there is a clip that has to be pinched in order for you to pull the switch off.  Hope this helps because I know what a pain it is!
