Question about 1994 Jeep Wrangler
There is s burnt smell of plastic in the passenger compartment, fuse keeps blowing and speedometer, tach, fuel gauge don't work. Everything else seems to be okay, lights, radio, wipers etc. Could it be the ground for the instrument panel? If so, where do I find it?
It isn't the ground; if you lost the ground, it wouldn't be blowing fuses-it wouldn't be doing anything.
There may be a short in the panel, or in the wiring to it. You will need to pull the instrument cluster out to investigate. If the wiring and connectors look good, probably need a new cluster.

IF YOU REMOVE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER AND UNPLUG IT,PLUG IT BACK IN AND UNPLUG IT AGAIN..DO THIS A FEW TIMES..IT SHOULD CLEAN OFF SLIGHT OXIDATION ON CONNECTOR TERMINALS..HAVE SEEN THIS BEFORE..I ALSO THINK REPAIR CONNECTORS AVAILABLE FROM DEALER

I am sure you know this already but because other people read these posts I wanted to include it. The "code" that is displayed by the odometer means there is a connection failure between the gauge cluster and the ECU. this NO BUS is often accompanied by malfuntioning gauges, the check engine light, and the airbag light, although exact gauges and lights may vary. THE SOLUTION in most cases is to remove the gauge cluster and clean the contacts of the cluster. The application of dialectric grease to the electrical contacts will also help greatly. Once the connection is passing voltage on all circuits, the gauges will imediately return to normal without needing a hard reset of the ECU. If that doesn't work you may be in need of a Pigtail, which is the link between your engine computer and the dash. The pigtail is around $35.

It sounds like one of the communication paths between the ECU and various sensors is open. It could be caused by an open or broken wire in one of the wiring harnesses.
