Call dealership and find out if it's a "PMI" system. If it has to be PMI'd at the dealership, then the old instrument cluster has all the old data in it. You have to remove all of the data from the old instrument cluster and put it in the new cluster before the car will run.

What does the code 1686 mean for a jeep grand cherokee

diesel engine? or gas, and what displacement? 4.0 , 4.7
P1686

did you scan the PCM and see if 1685 (wrong key code)
1686, rigth out of fsm

Trouble Code: P1686 4.7L
No SKIM Bus Messages Received
Number of Trips to Set Code: 1
PCM details.
Trouble Code Conditions:
Engine started; and the PCM did not detect any MIC (I/P Cluster) messages over the Data Bus circuit for 20 seconds.
Possible Causes:
  • Data Bus circuit from MIC to the PCM is damaged or it is open
  • Instrument Cluster is damaged or has failed
  • PCM unable to communicate with the Instrument Cluster
  • PCM has failed
this means, the PCM can not talk to the I/P cluster puter.
comm fail.
even wilder guess is PCM talks to KEY via cluster so if cluster dead
so be key.
bad fuses ?

I connected the wrong ignition coil wire from the spark plug and now my r m p instrument cluster will not work


probably didn't connect the tacho wire to the right side of the coil for the first problem
because the engine was replaced it is possible that a sensor wire to a wheel for the traction light was damaged /disconnected

It is the alternator. It may be putting out a charge but it is not enough. Once the car uses up the energy in the battery it will do exactly what yours is doing. And yes yours is old enough to run with out the cluster.

I know this sounds silly but Replace the crankshaft position sensor. My guess is it will start shutting itself off soon and restarting when it cools off. I think its just giving you a warning lol.

1995 Toyota V6 Battery light on instrument cluster stays on


The battery light comes on if the battery voltage is too low. Check you battery voltage. It should be above 12V with the engine running. If not, the alternator is not working. Next, check if there is power on the FIELD terminal of the alternator. Again, you should have 12+V. Check if the Alternator fuse is blown.
