Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee Classic. My Tachometer, Fuel Gage, and Speedometer quit working a few months ago. The Oil pressure,and Temperature gages work fine. All fuses are fine. I suspect a grounging problem but donot know the source for the ground for these gages. I have not installed any new equipment. The gages worked intermitently for a month of so before they quit all together I have tried replacing the gage cluster with a known working one, same problem still exists.

Have you tried working on one problem at a time?
have you check the body computer for any codes?
and to also verify the bus line is ok.
if you find nothing wrong with BCM or bus,
try checking the speed sensor for an output signal or if the gear is bad.

I have a 97 grand cherokee larado and when I shut it off it won't start back up for a few mins..then it fires up...is there a kill switch on it or something else wrong possibly


No kill switch. You may have a fuel pump pressure issue, it may being losing pressure after shut down due to a faulty fuel pump check valve. Do a fuel pressure leakdown test, start the engine with a fuel pressure test gage hooked to the test port on the fuel supply rail to the fuel injectors, looks like a tire valve. Start the engine and run it and check for leaks at the pressure port to the test gage, repair as needed, once you are sure the test gage is leak free shut the engine down, if the fuel pressure bleeds down very quickly then you need to replace the fuel pump.

Why all gauges quit working on 2000 jeep grand cherokee


Unfortunately you are not alone on this one and having a few friends with Jeeps this gets interesting. The shortest answer I've seen is remove the Negative Cable from the Battery for a few minutes to allow the voltage to fall in the system. Just pulling it off and putting it back on won't work just like home electronics power is stored for a few minutes in the system. This has worked to reset the system for some and off you go. If that is not the case you will be heading deep into a lot of diagnostic work and in some cases replace the ECM (Engine Control Module) which is about $1,000.00 last time I got near a Jeep so don't be bashful about checking everything.

GAGES QUIT


Check the connections on the back of the instrument cluster. It sounds like you have a faulty instrument cluster board, a poor connection and perhaps, but less likely, an ECU issue.

When I go to crank 2000 jeep Cherokee limited the fuel gage works sometimes and it will only run for about three seconds what's wrong?


The computer grounds the fuel pump relay for 3 seconds to boost fuel pressure on start-up. If the computer does not see oil pressure or RPM it will not continue to ground the relay.
You would need to bypass the relay and see if the pump continues to run, then check the relay and the ground signal from the computer.
The gas gauge problem may be connected or something different.
The connector at the gas tank may be faulty which would affect both the power for the pump and the fuel gauge sending unit.

I cannot read if there is any fuel in the tank,how do i repair and also can you quote me how much would anyone typically pay to fix this problem. also my speedometer does not work either but all the lights...


There are a few issues the gage not working could be, a bad fuel sender, a bad gage or a sort in the wires.

The speedometer is most likely a bad cable at 1 end or the other or the gear at the transmission. Or the speedo cluster itself is stripped.

My two thousand jeep starsts then shuts off engine light comes on check gages what are the gages


You probably recently had a new key made, and the Jeep ignition is chipped. The key has a sensor, and must be programmed to match the ignition. Some will start till you put it in gear, then it shuts off.

If the Jeep is making noise when the oil pressure is low, what you might be hearing is the valves or lifters. Take the Jeep to a mechanic and have it looked at before it gets worse and a small repair could turn into a big one.
