1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport cluster issues

I have the same exact cluster problem, When you turn the key on the fuel gauge pegs all the way and the low fuel light stays on, The oil pressure gauge pegs, and the speedometer and tach are completely inop. I thought it was the cluster but when i changed the cluster it made no difference.
This has to be common problem for these. But what is a possible solution?
I cannot see anything obvious

There is a ground to the cluster to the body that is not contacted.It has most likely disconnected from the cluster some where.The cluster can not make a connection threw,it has positive dc voltage,but not negative,it would have to be in the plug to the cluster.Finding the ground on the back of the cluster will be a procedure of visual happening .Look for the circuit on the back that looks like tracks running every where.Look for the track that all the components have in common.It will be the one circuit(track)that is broken in the circuit(track)or the plug in.There will be two of them.The circuit you are looking for will be ground(check with test light)With the test light grounded,touch the circuit you think might be the ground .The test light will light up,but kind of dim,and look at the gauges,and they will be working,if so,ground that circuit to the body somewhere.

this jeep has a voltage gauge, it must read 12v keyon
if not power is lost, or battery low.
if cranks that tells me the fues blew.

see that lamp 12, if stuck on car will never start but will crank.
the lamp falses if skim is not working or stays on for ******* key.
we SCAN ALL CARS NOW.
IF You can not scan a modern jeep then it can near impossible to diagnose (a hard cold fact)
IF the ASD fails to work, the PCM tells you every time
all 8 ways for it to fail.
but that takes a scan tool (any modern scanner works,)

Speedometer works but odometer does not on my 96 jeep Cherokee sport.


Generally its something inside the speedo cluster. You can try to replace it with a used cluster or send it out to have it repaired.
The dealer may have a list of shops qualified to rebuild Jeep clusters.

My check gauge light came on and next day 1996 jeep grand cherokee would crank but didn't start.


I know this is the obvious question, does it have fuel? Usually Check Gauges is for Low Fuel, Low Oil Pressure , and such. Hope this helps

Jeep will crank but wont start also fuel guage not working


Will it try to start if you spray some carb cleaner in the throttle body? If so you need to check fuel pressure and if low, power to the fuel pump while cranking, the gauge not working could be a seperate issue. Could it be that the car is out of gas since the gauge doesn't work? Just asking. If so you may just need a sending unit. If you end up needing a fuel pump, you'll get a sender with it. I've never seen a sender and a pump go out at the exact same time, the use two different circuit's. The ECM really doesn't have any thing to do with the fuel gauge on this car.
