1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee speedometer flickers when its raining and the windshield wipers are on also high idle sometimes when its hot.. any ideas?

Sounds like the speedometer cable under the steering inside the column could be loose. Minor adjustment if you know someone that could do this for you, or take it to a mechanic.

I don't know why the light on the speedometer turn off and I culd'nt see any thing on speedometer?

Is it all your dash lights? There is a dimmer somewhere on your dash that controls all of the dash lights. If it is just the speedometer, then it is most likely the bulb has gone bad, or there is a bad connection. Does it ever flicker? If you check the bulb and it is good, sometimes cleaning up the contacts with a pencil eraser, then cleaning the area with alcohol and a q-tip will fix a bad connection. Hope this helps.
Good luck!

Speedometer is erratic

It sounds like the core of your speedometer cable is rubbing the outer housing. The speedometer cable runs from the inst panel, thru the firewall, and onto the side of the transmission that faces the driver. This is not a hard job to do, but, when replacing the cable, take care to not break the ears off of the part that hooks on to the back of the speedometer.

My speedometer is not working along with my odometer.

If your speedometer is not electronic, unfasten the speedometer cable from the back of the dashboard instrument assy. Replace the odometer & speedometer unit with another one. Reconect the speedometer cable. This should do the trick.

Speedometer Stops

Most cars Speedometer cable connect to one of the front wheels, but you said your speedometer sometimes stop then your steering wheel will go stiff, I think you should fix or change your speedometer cable, maybe the cable broken inside. Fix it as soon as possible for your safety.

Speedometer cable has two parts, one is outside cable, mounted and connect to both speedometer and wheel.

The other one is an inside steel cable, outside cable protects the inside cable, because the inside cable turns as soon as you move the car. It is directly connect to the wheel gears and the speedometer inside.

If your car has speedometer cable, I think you need check it right away.

Your steering wheel sometimes stiff, you also need to check your power steering fluid level, sometimes cause this kind problem.

Hope this can help you and if you have more questions, please use whatever the Fixya allowed, contact me to discuss this matter and others. Thank you.
