1997 Cherokee questions-gauges, abs, etc?
New member who will be posting much more useful info shortly, but I had a couple questions.
First and foremost, I am aware that 97 was the year of the interior change for the Cherokee, among a few other things. That said-I noticed there are no indicators for actual temps of the engine, just a light. The same goes for the oil pressure and the voltage. This disappoints me and is it supposed to be this way? Is there a digital readout somewhere? I would really like to know what my temp is at, at the VERY least. I don't want to trust the idiot lights to alert me to a problem when it's probably already too late.
Also, I noticed that there is an ABS light on the dashboard cluster but it doesn't actually light. Were the same gauge panels installed on all jeeps, regardless of whether or not you had ABS? I took a look at the brakes and I see no place where ABS is on this machine, so I'm a bit confused as to why I can faintly see that little ABS area on the cluster. Someone set my mind at ease here? I really DO NOT want ABS.
Thanks folks and I look forward to getting this thing zombie proof with your help.
