The first thing to check is the fuse. If the fuse it ok, you may need to take off the large bezel around the instrument pannel. After that, turn the key to power up the electronics. Use a multimeter or voltmeter to check for to make sure it is getting power. If it isn't getting power, there may be a problem with a wire or connector. It it is powered, but nothing lights up, it may be that something else is unpluged or defective.

SOURCE: guages on instrument panel died 1998 jeep cherokee

Others have had this problem too. Most times it's a loose connection behind the gauge cluster.:

When you take the dash apart to get at the back of the guage you'll see that the connectors for the panel are attached to a molded piece of black plastic and the panel sits on top of them. The solution I used was to actually cut the plastic back (you can break it back too...) and insert the plugs tightly, then put a dab of hot glue on top and bottom to keep them from backing out. It keeps them nice and snug and you can remove them in one minute with a razor knife if you need to. After about a year I haven't had the problem since.

BTW - your mileage is not accurate if you have this problem. I noticed that when the gauges are off, it does not count mileage...went about 5000k miles without an oil change once...Just some addt'l info.

I know it's not a factory fix, but it costs about $1 for a glue stick and it only takes about 30min.

Hope it helps you.

SOURCE: 1994 Grand Cherokee Jeep wont start

It is likely one of your battery cables loose. Same thing just happened to me today. What you need to do is first lock the doors, and close them. Then you need to disconnect, and reconnect the battery cable, then if the security lights still blink you must use your key to unlock the door, then it should stop blinking, and start just fine.

All of the guages quit working but vehicle stays running. Will turn back on then quit again


It's common for the instrument cluster to go bad on the Chrysler products after a few years. The problem is the solder on the instrument panel where the wire harness connects to cracks due to time and heat causes this problem. If you can solder, this is an easy fix and save your self lots of $$$. Good luck and try giving a tap on the top of the dash board where the instrument panel is, that usually gives it a quick fix for a while.

Instrument Panel goes on and off, as do headlights


You have to remove the panel to check onthe connections behind it, also check the headlights switch, they tend to burn out.

If that many things went out at the same time its most likely a fuse issue. There are usually 2 fuse panels in the Jeep - one under the hood and one by the steering column. Check the proper fuses to see if they blew out and replace if needed.
