    i have already tried that and it did not work.

  • tcrouse Apr 12, 2009

    old battery was almost dead on my 05 crossfire,we jumped it, it started,pulled old battery out,put new one in and now it won't start. we took negative cable off for a half hour,and it still won't start.

  • tcrouse Apr 12, 2009

    i can hear the fuel pump but the engine won't turn over.the blue light keeps flashing and ticking and with the old battery it would start.could it be a security problem where i would need a code to get it started?

  • tcrouse Apr 12, 2009

    i am not getting the correct answer to starting my crossfire,can you please help me,i've already posted several questions.keep in mind that a blue light stays on all the time, i've recently replaced the battery and that's when the problem started.

Hi tcrouse,
  There is a special bulletin as well that covers the above mentioned problem in crossfire.
NO: 08-15-99 SUBJECT: Erratic, Intermittent Cluster Operation/Intermittent Air Bag Warning light. DATE: May 21, 1999THIS BULLETIN SUPERSEDES TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN NUMBER 08-20-98 REV. A, DATED OCTOBER 2, 1998, WHICH SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM YOUR FILES AND NOTED IN THE BOUND TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN BOOK, PUBLICATION NUMBER 81-699-99003. THIS IS A COMPLETE REVISION TO THE PROCEDURE.


OVERVIEW:This bulletin involves installing a repair harness containing a revised instrument cluster connector.
SYMPTOM/CONDITION:Some vehicles may exhibit an intermittent  illumination of the air bag warning light or an intermittent tachometer or speedometer drop out. An Airbag Electronic Control Module (AECM) fault code -"No Cluster CCD BUS " message will be present.
DIAGNOSIS:Using the DRB III®, read and record all active and stored fault codes in the AECM. This condition is caused by minor oxidation of the BUS circuit terminals at the instrument cluster connector. Electrical terminals will show signs of oxidation, which will appear as darkened lines or marks on the cluster male terminals. These often appear as gray or black marks rather than the appearance of oxidation or corrosion usually associated with higher current carrying circuits. This condition will set a "NO CLUSTER CCD BUS" message. The fault code will usually be stored and not active. THIS TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN WILL NOT ADDRESS FUEL OR OIL PRESSURE GAUGE ISSUES. If this fault code is present, either active or stored perform the Repair Procedure.
PARTS REQUIRED: Qty Part No. Description 1 05016261AA Cluster Connector Patch Harness 1 04856975 Electric Contact Cleaner 2 04778570 Heat Shrink Tubing REPAIR PROCEDURE: THIS REPAIR IS COMPATIBLE WITH DAIMLERCHRYSLER'S MOBILE SERVICE PROGRAM AND DOES NOT REQUIRE HOISTS OR OTHER FULL SERVICE FACILITY SPECIAL EQUIPMENT.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the instrument cluster using the procedures outlined in the appropriate servicemanual.

    1. Inspect the male terminals of pins 1 & 2 on the instrument cluster connector labeled CNB . The oxidation will appear as gray or black lines or marks on the terminals. If any signs of oxidation are present, remove them by gently scraping the terminals with a small flat bladed screw driver until the oxidation is gone. Use of a magnifying glass may be helpful. Use caution when performing this operation. Do not apply excessive force to the terminals to avoid bending them or damaging the cluster or terminals. Do not use a sharp tool, knife or, which could remove the protective plating from the terminals. Do not use any cleaner other than p/n 04856975. Other chemical cleaners could damage the instrument cluster.

    2. Clean the male terminals with Electrical Contact cleaner, p/n 04856975. Apply the cleaner sparingly holding the cluster with the connector facing down to avoid excessive amount of cleaner from entering the cluster

Use caution when performing this operation. Do not apply excessive force to the terminals to avoid bending them or damaging the cluster or terminals. Do not use a sharp tool, knife or sand paper, which could remove the protective plating from the terminals. Do not use any cleaner other than p/n 04856975. Other chemical cleaners could damage the instrument cluster.

    2. Clean the male terminals with Electrical Contact cleaner, p/n 04856975. Apply the cleaner sparingly holding the cluster with the connector facing down to avoid excessive amount of cleaner from entering the cluster.

    3. Remove the green cluster connector from the bracket.

    4. Using wire cutters, remove the instrument cluster harness connector from the harness. Remove only the connector containing the BUS circuit . This connector is labeled CBA on the cluster. Cut the wires as close to the insulator as possible.

    5. The new connector must be soldered onto the harness. This operation requires a technician who is skilled at soldering to avoid a cold solder  joint. Position the harness and align the wires with the patch harness, matching the color codes match the main wire colors.
    6. NOTE: THE XJ INSTRUMENT PANEL CONTAINS ONE MORE CIRCUIT IN THIS CONNECTOR THAN THE TJ. CUT THE UNUSED WIRE CLOSE TO THE CONNECTOR ON TJ MODELS.

    7. Stagger cut the main harness and patch harness wires so that the solder joints will be 1/2 inch apart. Remove 1/2 inch of insulation from the wires. The new harness will have a dark blue with no tracer. This will mate with a dark blue wire with a green tracer on TJ and with a dark blue wire with a white tracer on XJ.

    8. Slide a piece of heat shrink tubing over the wires and twist the wires together for each respective circuit.

    9. Solder each circuit using rosin core solder. Be sure to heat the wire enough to allow the solder to melt when it comes in contact with wire. Do not use acid core solder.

    10. Position the heat shrink tubing over the solder joints and shrink the tubing using a heat gun.

    11. Install the connector to the bracket.

    12. Install the instrument cluster.

    13. Connect the battery cable.

    14. Verify correct operation of the cluster.

    POLICY:Reimbursable within the provisions of the warranty.

Before calling a machanic you need to find out "What is missing in the equation (fuel, spark, compression)", get the fuel pump and current flow checked first.

let me know the status

Battery indicator light comes on above idle RPM, gauges start fluctuating.


The first thing you need to know is what the alternator output is when this starts happening.
It could be a faulty connection in the wiring harness, or a bad ground connection, or a failing alternator.

Gauge cluster lights won;t light - replaced cluster, dimmer switch - did put new stereo in car? Fuses, bulbs all good. What could be the problem?


When you put the stereo in, what did you do with the red wire with a green stripe? The aftermarket radios don't always use these, so you have to wrap the ends, depending on whether or not you used a wiring harness. If that wire is shorted on the chassis, it will blow the dimmer fuse.

the alternator bushing is worn and failing when the alternator reaches over 2000 rpm it basically does not contact the bushings any longer and will not make contact, make sure the belt is not slipping, other than putting a load test on the alternator to verify that it is working properly, as it may be the gauge. A test light will not help. A battery alternator tester is relatively cheep, even a corner garage may have one and help you out. Being an 05 it is completely possible that is the alternator all together.
