Stuck speedometer on 92 jeep cherokee

I've checked the speedometer itself and it seems to be fine. There is no cable, just a wire harness. It would work off and on but now doesn't work at all. Can anyone help?

Check all harness connections and clean them with contact cleaner. Corrosion on connector contacts is not as obvious as the crud that grows on battery terminals usually only appearing as dark residue only. The sender on the transmission or transfer case is basically a small generator that makes voltage. essentially your speedometer is a volt meter with a different face on it. either it has failed or there is a connection breakdown somewhere.

Masters switch no windows for locks work on a 2004 Jeep grand Cherokee.

a common item on this vehicle is one or more wires breaking in the wire harness, look at the door wire harness that goes between the door itself and the body. strip the covering off the harness and check the individual wires for breakage or corrosion. If there is room and not too many broken you can have them repaired, otherwise on some models yuo can buy the section of wire harness from the door to the body and just replace the assembly.

Took apart the dash in a jeep grand cherokee 94 put it back together and now the speedometer wont work but everything else is fine

remove again the dash. in the position of the speedometer, you can see a cable that is quite thick, as thick as a normal coaxial cable that can be seen behind your TV. attach this first at the back of the speedometer before reinstalling the dash.

Hey i have a 1995 jeep grand cherokee in my power windows are stuck open. i have replaced the circuit breaker but that did not fix the problem.

This happened with my '94 Grand Cherokee. I found it was a wiring issue in the door. If you look where the door connects to the body of the Jeep itself (while the door is open, of course) you will see a protective boot going from the side of the door to the side of the lower dash. In that protective boot, you will find a wiring harness with a **** load of wires (all color coded for convenience). You may find that you have some wires that have broken/shorted out in that wiring harness. We had to cut the protective boot off to access those wires so we could repair them. And then wrap the wires, once repaired, with electrical tape to protect them. The best part about this wiring harness is that it does come out. (It basically "plugs" into the door and into the lower side of the dash.) The bad part about this wiring harness is, that if you decide you want to replace it, a new one will cost about $350. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Spedomoeter jumps up and down works fine sometimes especially in the morning all other gauges work

The speedometer Gear drive may be going bad. Or it could be if your speedometer is cable driven the cable just needs lubed. On the side of your transmission near the rear you will see a small gear box with wires or a cable. Place a pan under it and remove it from trans. Check gear to see if it is chewed or worn. If not and you have a cable driven speedometer use graphite cable lube on cable. If this don't work it could be in the cruise control or speedometer.
