all warning lights in cluster work? at self test key?????

if the PCM can not comm, to the cluster, the cluster
can not show tach or speed, can't , and cant update odometer either
does the odometer roll moving>? i bet not

the cluster is a stand alone unit, with puter brain (processor)
fuel guage work?

if the scan tool shows U codes or C codes and comm errors
that must be addressed first. (cause)
see?
you cant fix cars, with out a $5 scan tool, cant. why not buy one
and use it?
ask how, 1000's of choices here... and more.

How to fix 1999 jeep cherokee sport


You mean it cranks but does not start, right ?
The NoBus on the display means the cluster is not talking to the computer. That could be a wiring problem or a component problem.
Have you checked the engine computer for trouble codes ?

Check gauges light comes on & the charging hands drops off, new battery, alternator was checked, it's good, what could the problem be? it's a 1995 Jeep Wranger.


Do the other gauges quit working also. If so you have an electrical connection problem at the back of the instrument cluster. Remove the cluster, unplug the electrical connectors and clean both sides with "electronics cleaner". Insert plugs and reinstall cluster. This is a common problem. Be sure to look for burnt contacts.

Instrument cluster lights don't work. Fuses and bulbs are good.


feed wire for the lights may have failed or the circuit on the board may have gone. if you remove the cluster you can put a supply to the bulb circuit (carefully) and check if it is the circuit. If it's ok you can run a new feed to the cluster from your lights. Job done.

Ignition on 88 jeep yj not working


sounds like your ECM might be bad. Is there anything else that will turn on besides the lights? It could just be a main fuse. I'd start at the interior fuses if any and then go to the main fuse block and check for any loose wires or blown fuses first.

1999 jeep wrangler guages went crazy


Put a volt meter on the battery itself and take a reading when it is doing that. If charge rate is over 14v the alternator may be working but the output is not being cut down to "useful voltage" You may have a regulator problem.

Fuel an temperature gauge quit working


There is a voltage regulator for the instruments, usually located on the back of the instrument panel. This may be kaput or it may just have corroded/loose connections. I would check this first.

95 jeep yj wont start


have you checked the fuel pump ? the fuel pump is in the fuel tank and it may be that the fuel guage inside the tank is broken and or not attached to the pump. This is a big job but with a little help from buddys and a bit patients it can be repaired.

Remove the four screws that secure the instrument cluster to the instrument panel Instrument Cluster Remove/Install
Pull the instrument cluster rearward to disengage the two self-docking wire harness connectors
NOTE: The instrument cluster has two self-docking wire harness connectors that will be automatically aligned with, and connected to the instrument panel wire harness when the cluster is installed in the instrument panel.

Reverse the removal procedures to install. Tighten the mounting screws to 2.2 N·m (20 in. lbs.)
