Okay, sounds like you have a short and the gauge is accurately telling you there is a problem. If you have a ohmmeter disconnect the battery and underhood light. The gauge should not show a connection between the two wires you removed from the battery. If there is a connection remove the big wire from the solenoid that goes to the starter. If this breaks the connection the starter is bad, if the connection is still there you need to pull fuses one at a time and see when you break the connection. Remember to keep doors shut. The fuse that breaks the connection goes to the bad part. If you do not have a fuse diagram, just start the car and see what does not work. Hope this helps.

Abs light comes on, overcharging and gauges bounce up and down?


Check the charging system and battery, as long as the alternator keeps fluctuating, the gauges will keep bouncing.

Battery gauge moves


check for belt tightness it sounds like the belt is slipping or the idle rpm is too low (near 500) to keep the alternator suppying enough power to run the car(or it is too small amperage alternator for the car anyway..) get tested for free at autozone or parts store..

I have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo 6 cyl. i was driving and noticed the battery gauge said the battery was dead and then i noticed the check gauges light went on. i pulled over and saw my temp gauge...


well check the coolant level. it sounds like you had a vapor lock and that would cause steam to escape and cause connections to get wet. this may have cause your battery to read dead. if you aren't low on coolant then i would start with the thermostat. that is easy to change and cheap. if you have low coolant then you may have vapor lock. to fix that you need to let the engine cool down and if you have a radiator cap remove it. look inside you should see coolant. if you don't fill up the radiator with coolant. with the cap off start the jeep and turn the heater on. let the engine warm up. watch the temp gauge and keep looking in the radiator. if you don't see coolant keep add it. at times it will bubble and burp this is normal. keep checking the temp gauge. now see if you feel heat coming out of the heater. if your feeling good heat then the system is circulating. (this mean your not in vapor lock anymore) let it keep running and keep adding coolant till it is full in the radiator. once full put the cap back on and fill the coolant tank to the full point. keep running it but keep checking the temp to be on the safe side. if the temp stay steady you should be good. hope this helps. please rate.

Sometimes a bad battery connection will cause gauges go hay wired. Turn your switch on but not over and see if your gauges do the same without the car running. try loosening the battery cables and reposition the post.

Is there an easier way of running down all ur wires...aint their some kindof machine I can use to figure out if my promblem is a wiring promblem???


Nope, at least for finding a problem. Get yourself a wiring schematic for the vehicle and at least you will have the wire gauge & color for each circuit. It does make it much easier.
