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.

Battery is fine now but will not be soon alternator is good if it can put out 19v but 14v is tha absolute high limit...shop should know that. Regulator is full fielding or field wire to alternator is grounding.

    I was hoping you wouldn't say that. But just because it's in the comnputer does not mean it cannot fail, it only makes an inexpensive part expensive. There is a way to wire around it using an older regulator but I don't remember the exact way to do it, and it will turn the check engine light on, in some states that will fail you on inspection.

Sounds more like a fuel pump problem ,but iam often wrong,on the older models i have found the rubber connecting hose inside the tank that connects the pump to the outlet on the fuel gauge unit perishes and the fuel pressure drops giving the symptoms you describe

Oil pressure gauge 2000 jeep cherokee sport 4.0 6cyl.


It's probably the oil pressure switch. I have to replace min every 5 years or so because it does the same thing. Mine is mounted next to the filter on my '93. It's a little black thing with a plug in the end. You can get one at autozone for about $40.
