    OK. I will try that. I've heard the same type of "backwoods" remedy for fuel pump issues as well. I've also been doing some research elsewhere, and am also seeing that these gauge problems may be caused by voltage /electrical issues. Wasn't sure if this may be the cause. But, I'll try wacking the gas tank first...

This is going to sound a little back woods but try hitting your gas tank with a hammer or kicking it because your float that sends the amount to your gauge is stuck.

How do you fix the gauges in a 1998 jeep cherokee sport?


What gauges and whats the problem? Gauges are fairly simple. Theres the sending unit, wiring and the actual gauge on the dash. You need all 3 for proper function check fuses if multiple gauges are not functioning..

OIL PRESSURE SWITCH-I'm not sure if this is the gauge sender, though. 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4WD 4.0L MFI 6cyl The Oil Pressure Switch is located: Under hood, passenger side, lower engine area, above oil pan, mounted in engine block.

Thermostat


Hi,
It sounds like your temp. sender unit could be faulty. If the gauge is showing the engine temp. is extremly hot that will be the temperature sender unit.

It shouldn't cost too much to replace maybe $ 60 - $ 100 depending on cost for the temp. unit and the workshop you go too.

Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Reversed jumper cables on 1999 jeep Cherokee sport. Battery seems to be ok, but no gauges and no start. Will crank, and electric fan comes on with key in on position.


The main control module is the most sensitive, but you should go through the motions of checking if there is spark, if there is fuel pressure, etc. The control module is expensive. But you can try a salvage yard one.

2001 jeep cherokee compression guage at 80


generally it turns outto be one of three things 1. bad sending unit (switch) 2. stuck pressure relief valve in pump (not often) 3. bad gauge head (less than not often)(rare). You can attach a mechanical gauge to the engine and read actual oil pressure (attaches right where sender screws in). That will tell you if the problem is inside the engine or in the gauge system. If it turns out to be inside the engine you can add Marvel oil...many times the problem will clear up in a few days.
Be aware though that very high pressures can cause the oil filter to split or the seal to leak.Most quality filters are tested to about 100psi.(no idea about cheap ones if the test them at all)

I have an 01 Jeep Cherokee Sport. I am having


As soon as the vehicle reaches around 180/195 (depends on the temp of the t-stat) the thermostat should open and thereby filling the top hose with warm/hot water.
Are you sure the thermostat is facing the right direction? Is the cooling system full?
Here is what you can do: remove the t-stat, replace any lost coolant/water and run the vehicle with heater on full blast for about 15 minutes or until the temp gauge is showing about halfway. During this time be sure to monitor the coolant level in the reservoir.
If you still have no hot air you may have a blockage or perhaps the heater hoses are not even connected.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L oil pressure gauge reading too high


if the gauge starts a 0 - goes to 1/2 , than full - sounds like gauge is OK - seems to me like the sending unit is bad - you could try removing the sender and trying to clean out the port with "brake clean", letting it dry than re-installing it. the pressure switch is still the least expensive place to start

Gas gauge always shows above full with key on . key off goes to empty.


there is a short in the wire going from the gauge to the tank. ck the wiring under the truck from the tank going forward, and ck if anything looks like its rubbing on the wiring harness.

99 jeep cherokee sport 4.0l 6cyl voltage will go to 19v


The problem sounds intermittent, if you put volt meter on the battery while it is at that 19volt mark/reading(on the gauge cluster) you will be able to see if it is true. If your alternator is really charging over 16volts the lights should be getting brighter then usual and/or they are burning out. Find out ASAP, if the alternator has a defective voltage regulator, it needs to be replaced. Prolong use will damage components.
