Gauges on dash dont work, windows dont work, starts and stalls after 3 seconds


Hello , What year is the vehical? Have you recently changed a computer or ecu on the vehical? Have you recently had keys made for it ? I ask these things because There may be a transponder system on the Jeep , and if its not sync'd up properly it will cause all these problems you have listed. It may even be as simple as a loose or faulty ground wire as well. Thank you , Quinn Texada.

I have a 1997 JGC V6 lately I noticed that the gauges don't work when the key is in the run position and the jeep wont start. If it sits for a while then I turn the key the gauges come on and the jeep...


Are you the only driver for this vehicle?
Next time when you refill up,DO NOT TOP OFF THE GAS.
When the gas pump stop,just let it stop. DO NOT TRY to put more into the take.
When topping off,the fuel sensing float is push BEYOND it limit. It will create a short on the wiring to the gauage.
Please ran few tank WITHOUT TOPPING off and see does the flow return to normal and not creating a short.
The fuel pump and gas level sensor is in the same unit. It's costly to pull the gas tank down and replace it.

My gauges don't turn on when key is on run pos and cranks but don't start.


Check that the smaller wire going to battery positive terminal has a good connection. Check for blown fusible links under the hood and fuses in fuse panel.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee...Blowing ASD fuse


My daughters jeep had the same problem. We fixed by finding the wires that run beside the manifold down under the car. The conduit that have the wires in it was worn away because of resting up against the manifold, causing the wires to short the system out. Once I replaced the conduit and taped the wires it has not shorted out again. By the way, the Jeep dealer couldn't find the problem.

Gauges, windows, mirrors, and radio wont work while running


This is not a typical automotive problem. This is a serious electrical issue.... maybe related to ignition switch or emission control module. I don't think you'll find a simple answer other than taking it to a dealership for service.
