Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Both my speedometer and tachometer stopped working. My speedometer stopped working first and less than a minute later, the tach stopped as well. My code reader says speed sensor which makes sense, but what about the tach?

The speed sensor can be tested with a scanner. Only take 10 minutes, If it works then your instrument cluster took a dive. Same thing with the RPM. If the scanner sees it then the cluster is bad. Getting it diagnosed properly is your best bet. You can get the cluster rebuilt for alot less than new. modulemaster.com does them.

Speedometer and tachometer not working My tach only works sometimes. It never seems to lower in rpm when I slow down, but it continues to increase as I speed up. Could the problem be the speed sensor?


This is a tricky one. You have two sensors for your speedometer and tachometer, if one is malfunctioning then both will. Check and replace if necessary, good luck

You have two sensors on the engine that send a signal to the computer, speedo, and tach. If just one of these sensors goes bad your speedometer and tachometer can just stop working. Check if these sensors are blocked or if broken then replace.

Good Luck!
