Coming from my first thread posted here:
We have purchased our first Jeep and we love it. I found a WONDERFUL deal for $4k at 90k miles and its in great internal/external shape aside from 1 lil problem. It is a beautiful Amethyst blue/purple color and was a 1 owner vehicle. It is almost in too good a shape to use for what we bought it for (muddin), but thats what its for.... to go walk the dog somewhere he can run. The dog should be feeling very special right about now cause that was the sole reason behind getting it, not to mention not wanting to have to clean the other car all the time.
Now for the problem:
From time to time all the gauges on the instrument panel cease to function. This usually seems to happen at idle/park or traveling at low speeds in a neighborhood. I've read up a lil bit and some people think this could be related to humidity/rain too.
In any case the intermittent gauges failing is always accompanied by:
Check Engine light comes on
Air Bag light comes on
"No Bus" or "No bu5" shows on the odometer
Vehicle mechanical functions do not seem affected. IE: The engine still runs and so does everything else. A restart of the Jeep usually gets rid of it, but it does pop up again from time to time.
