If you have trouble finding a TCM, I've got one out of a 2000 that I parted out, 109000 miles on it, if you're interested let me know. I'll make you a good deal on it.

Hi Nick Kid and other readers. I also have the issue of no cluster gauges in my GC WJ 2001. I'm in Queensland Australia. I read with much interest when you talk about temperatures because it's the same with mine. On a warm and sunny day everything works well. On a cold day the gauges are erratic or won't work at all.[/I] I tell people about this and the comment is mostly ignored. My engine light is on but it goes out; 0P040 or some code like that; injector cylinder 4. But it's very minor to the engine running well as it's also intermittent. I've been to Jeep, "dur, no idea, but we'll sell you a new cluster at $2,300". Yes you read right. So I got a cluster cheap; $100. Same issues. My point is this only happens on a cold day. Even when the engine warms up, clusters still stay down. On a warm day, no issues. Did you ever find your problem??

I had nearly the same problem with my 98 XJ, intermittent gauge issues and airbag light going on and off. What I did was cleaned them with a dry q-tip, then took some pretty rough sandpaper and slid it between all the male connectors on the back of the cluster then took some dielectric grease put it on the q-tip and put that on the male connectors. After that I took a little piece of the sandpaper folded it in half and shimmed up the green female connections so they were held better in place as I'm sure you noticed they move around a bit. After that I haven't had a single issue and that was months ago. Good luck man I hope that helped.
