can i disable on board info center completely?

The info center on my '93 4.0 laredo makes annoying beeping noises and displays "washer fluid low" but its fine and "rear lamp failure". Today it displayed "coolant level low" but I checked and it was fine. The message dissapeared next time I started it up. i dont feel like any of the info is vital since the analog gauges tell me the essentials and the jeep is a rusted out beater. Can i disable it completely? If so, how. Thanks

Ya just remove the bezel covering it(there is i think 6 phillips screws holding it on) unscrew it remove the harness throw it out. I guess the 2wd version had a cubby there you might want to check a junk yard if you are gonna remove it.

Very simple procedure.
take out the screws holding the dash piece on. there are 2 above the radio, 2 above the VIC, and 2 inside the ash tray. there ae 2 clips that the dash piece is pressed into on either side of the radio. pull from the lower left and right corners of the bezel and it will pop out. unplug the ashtray light and the wires going to the cigarette lighter and set the bezel aside. now is a good time to set the e brake and move the shifter to 1st, gives you a little more room to work. the vic is held in by 3 screws, 2 on top 1 on the bottom. remove these, and the vic should pull out. unplug the harness (2 connectors) from it and either screw it back in, or go to the junkyard and find the cubby box from a 2wd ZJ and put that there. i did the second option, so now i have something functional there. assembly is the reverse of disassembly
