Gauges Working Intermittently - 1997 Cherokee
This is my first post, but I am so happy to have found an awesome forum like this! This is my second Cherokee and I am an addict. However, I never had issues with my first, so this is why I am just now finding this forum!
I've had this Cherokee for a few short months. Shortly after bringing it home, I noticed that the gauges were working intermittently. At first the speedometer and tachometer would be working, then cut out, then come back after a few seconds. Over time they've pretty much stopped working altogether, but will occasionally kick in for about 15-30 seconds before cutting out again.
More recently the other gauges have started to act funny as well. Just yesterday all of the gauges briefly cut out, before coming back on.
I've noticed that if I have the vehicle running, then stop the engine and power, then turn it back on in about 2-3 minutes, the gauges will kick on for a few seconds, before turning off again.
Do I need to be looking at connections, wires, or fuses? I'm a technical person, so I am not afraid to get in there, but some guidance is appreciated.
I look forward to hearing back! This is just one question of many to come! I also need to look into a sound coming from the rear of the Cherokee! Thanks!
