Dash board cluster lights are out 94 jeep grand cherokee

None of the dashboard lights work, changed fuse on rt side of dash in fuse box, light in gearshift lever also out, as well as lights on dash controls. only light that works is the compass, and the heater temperature, and the screen that shows the mileage till next service and date and time. tried changing fuses, got them to come on briefly, then all went out again,
also, where is the sending unit or sensor for the coolant temperature located on the 6 cyl engine? it is the only guage that does not work/

thanks

The sensor is located in the very front on top of engine slightly to the right, If you open the hood and lean over the engine just so you can see through the gap between the fan and the engine you will see two rubber radatior hoses kinda to the left then you will see the sensor to the right of them ,kinda looks like a spark plug with a plastic plug on the end of it with two wires connected to it.It screws into the ingine.

ABS fail.

tURNS (L/r) active and high beam.
illumination (back ground glows) works, hard wired TOO.

all else will be dead if COMMs are lost or fuses out. depends on which fuse is dead, if both blown all warns dead and gauges.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee with electrical issues: power locks, power windows, dashboard doesnt work, digital info readers dont work, console lights flicker and dim, sometimes inside lights flicker, wh


engine runs perfect?
head lights full power bright>? 2 questions, and shows battery is at 12.6vdc rested and 13.3 to 15vdc running, (is it>?_)
ill pretend yes......
blown fuse. what else could cause so many things, to lose DC power.
>?
a fuse can be good, bad or intermittent , even corroded,
a tech would scratch head and pick the easiest fault to fix.
my guess, is
dashboard doesnt work means the guages , and idiot lamps are dead but the park lamps there (dimmable) do work.
so what fuse is that.? i say to self.....
I open the FSM. and look at the power cluster feed.
what do i see.?
posted over 100 times here.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

i look in instruments page. (aka. cluster)
tells you how it works
then i jump wiring page 8w-40-2
i see what, Fuse 10. is it good? and fuse 17.
fuse 10 is key on,, and fuse 17, is hot full time.

thats it, if the cluster is dead, only fuses can kill it 100% dead
or it losts its main ground, which is unlikely but voltmeter proves
in 1min flat. (G201)


i picked right, the cluster dead, is the most simple
if Headlights are dead, its most simple (not in Canada with DRL)

bingo?

Dash lights out and gauges not working


Probably a short or bad connection in the wiring behind the cluster, or the printed circuit board on the back of the cluster.

Dash and shifter lights in 1996 jeep cherokee wont light


Hello and welcome to FixYa . Locate the dial that controls the brightness of the dashboardlights. If the control is not immediately evident. Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse. Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights Replace the fuse if necessary. If just one part of the instrument panel is not lighting up, then you have either a burned-out bulb or a wiring problem.
