Randomly driving- the airbag light comes on followed by the RPM gauge not working. Also the MPG gauge goes dead- but it runs and drives fine?

SOURCE: low battery gauge indicated

Not necessarily,this can also be caused by poor battery cable connections or a bad battery cable or a bad connection to the gauge or just a bad gauge.Check or have them checked first,and then have the alternator output tested,a voltmeter connected at the battery posts should measure 14.5 to 14.8 volts at an idle,any lower than this than the alternator is the problem.

SOURCE: Airbag light just started coming on, and goes on and off intermit

When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel

SOURCE: instrument cluster going dead after airbag light comes on

I had the exact same issue with my 1999 cherokee. None of the gauges worked, the red airbag light was on, the horn didn't work etc.... After going to several different mechanics, it was determined that i had a bad ECM computer. I got online, went to autocomputer exchange.com, got a remanufactured computer, put it in... and all the gauges now work. I highly recommend doing this, because the dealership will screw you for almost $1000 for a new computer... whereas, I paid only $225 for the one from autocomputer exchange. Anyhow, everything works great now.

My tachometer quit working in my 2001 rodeo,ive checked all the connections ad it stills not working how can i fix the problem


no engine stated. ouch....
all else work? car drives, no mifire????
no low MPG?
no CEL lamp glowing driving,?????? check engine light,.??
if the cluster TACH (stock ) is dead.
then its bad, or the wires from it to the PCm. are bad.
of other cluster gauges or lamps are dead, the fuse blew to the cluster.
that is all i can do working blind, id have to see all to tell all.

ill get your custer drawings and look for you, you can too at Mitchells DIY'
there is 2001 rodeo and rodeo sports. ill guess non sport.

ok the PCM if you scan it and RPM reads ok then all that is ok
the PCM on this car sends RPM data , on 1 wire to the techo,
if it arrives there, (wires) then the tacho works if and only if it has power, if the coolant gage works that means tacho has power too. as they sit on the same power rail in the head.

My sons1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the gauges light on and would not start like battery was dead. Had it jump started and it started.When he put in park it stalled jumped again and worked.


Sounds like a charging system problem and the alternator may not be working. The gauge light will come on if the charging gauge is showing low so you will look at the gauges. Have the battery and charging system tested

No dash lights when headlights are turned on. Everything works fine on my vehicle EXCEPT today the panel lights don't work. Turn signals, hazard blinker, oil gauge, rpm gauge, speedometer, drive shift...


there is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

I have a automatic 1999 pontiac grand am gt. the car and drives good until it heats up. then the gears shift extremely hard. and when sitting in idle you can hear a loud winding noise coming from my...


Check the transmission fluid level. Also check the rear differential if your car has one ( I think the 99's were still rear wheel drive) for fluid. If either of these are low, the fact that things are fine indicates that the low fluid level is causing problems. Also, the trans fluid should be a nice pink color. If it isn't then the transmission is not in good shape and should be looked at again by the rebuilder. If the fluid levels are fine, have the rebuilder check the trans again to see if he missed something.

The issue with the temp gauge is entirely separate except if you mean that the car begins to heat up when the shifting problems are occurring. If the temp gauge goes way up then comes down quickly regardless of how the car is being driven, the thermostat may be sticking and should be replaced. If the car is hard to drive and then starts overheating, the transmission may well be defective and causing the engine to work harder than it should.

1999 Jeep wrangler- 4-cylinder - gauges going dead


The check engine light is for emissions related items. It almost never will indicate that you are going to break down. If it starts to flash then you need to get somewhere right away, (I am not saying disregard it, just saying you don't have to be afraid of it)

The other problem will not be solved by a regular scan. It sounds like you have a bad ground somewhere. A dealer may be able to do a body scan, but even that is a hit and miss.

If you know how to read a schematic, get one for the air bag system. Note: be sure to unhook the battery for at least a half an hour before you mess with the wiring for the air bag. trace down any grounds and determine if they are sound.

Hope that helps.
