Have you tried replacing the fuel filter in the engine bay ? If that does not solve the problem fully, it could be that you have picked up a batch of dirty fuel that has clogged the gauze input filter that is part of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.
To clean the tank filter, you will need to remove the pump assembly from the tank. Access to it is usually through a removable plate in the floor in the rear of the vehicle. Once you have the pump assembly out, allow the gauze filter to dry. You can assess the amount of clogging by shining a torch through the gauze and see how much light comes through. Clean it by brushing with an old tooth brush and blowing clean with compressed air. If there is a lot of dirt/rust in the tank, try draining it. You may have to repeat the cleaning process again in few months if the symptoms appear again.

You need to check the belts, specifically the alternator belt.

check the fuel pump fuse/relay, could be just bad enough to cause an intermittent start/no start. and check fuel pressure,spark and the crank position sensor.

The gage cluster


Had the same problem on my wife's 1999 Cherokee.  I had to take the entire left side of the dash off to get the instrument cluster out.  You need to unplug it and clean the plug and the instrument cluster itself off and then put everything back together.  Worked for me and haven't had a problems since.  One note: the headlight switch has to be taken off and it's kinda hard.  You have to get up underneath it and  there is a clip that has to be pinched in order for you to pull the switch off.  Hope this helps because I know what a pain it is!
