1998 jeep cherokee, the airbag warning light periodically comes on while the speedometer drops to zero at the same time, lasts a few minutes then goes away, any ideas on the cause would be aappreciated


these jeeps are known for corrosion issues at the connector at the back of the instrument panel cluster causing the gauges to do odd things. if you remove the gauge pod assembly and undo the connector, check for any corrosion and clean as best as possible. fairly common issue. good luck!

Dash and shifter lights in 1996 jeep cherokee wont light


Hello and welcome to FixYa . Locate the dial that controls the brightness of the dashboardlights. If the control is not immediately evident. Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse. Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights Replace the fuse if necessary. If just one part of the instrument panel is not lighting up, then you have either a burned-out bulb or a wiring problem.
