Question about 1998 Jeep Wrangler
There is a loose connection (or corrosion) where the instrument cluster attaches to the wiring harness mount. Remove the screws (2) from the dash cover below the steering wheel and remove the panel. Remove the defrost vent cover (just lift carefully, it only snaps into place. Remove the screws around the cluster panel cover and remove the cover. Remove the the instrument cluster (it pulls straight out toward you) and make sure the wires are not corroded. Make sure the wiring harness is firmly attached to the metal bracket that holds them in place. Carefully push the instrument cluster back into place. While firmly holding the cluster in place, install and tightnen the screws that hold the cluster. After tightening, wiggle it and make sure it's solid. Start your Jeep and make sure everything works. Shut jeep off and install the rest of the panels in the reverse order of removal. This should fix your problem. What happens is, the cluster becomes loose, speedo quits working (sometimes all other gauges quit also) and gives an airbag code.
