We put a ODB code reader on my 95 jeep grand cherokee. The computer would not read out anything. When the doors open the radio goes off. When we r driving down the hwy the RPM go up from 1500 to 2500.

I suggest re-check to read and note your fault codes acdording with this read codes procedure, with out starting the engine: turn the ignition key ON, OFF, ON, OFF, and finally ON.

The check engine light on the dash will begin to flash. The light will flash the first number of the first digit pause and flash the number of the second digit. Example: five flashes, pause, three flashes = Code 53 PCM failure or Code 54 no cam shaft position sensor signal from distributor etc, etc.

Try this and send us this fault code to send you additional detaild.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

2005 grand cherike every once an while the gauges go out and all

it seems like if it were your ecu, might have a shortage somewhere in your panel.
i had a 01 jeep cherooke laredo with the same issue and i first tried finding the shortage but there wasn't so i replaced the ecu. and most of my fuses, after that it worked.
hope this solves your issue!

Gages go off while driving

First and foremost have the battery load tested. Even if the vehicle runs the electronics start acting up....

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!

How can you chek codes on you own ithout a computer

To check the codes on a 1995 you need an ODB code reader, then you connect the code reader to the ECM (computer module) that is located under the hood.
