Instrument cluster haywire!

Hey guys I have a 96 zj 4.0 and about 30 minutes ago I stopped to get gas and upon restart the vic was all solid blocks and while driving the gas light seatbelt light, airbag light etc etc started coming on and off an the speedo and rpms, battery, oil etc etc work then go to nothing as if the Jeep had died but come back to life sporadically. Any ideas on this electrical gremlin?

Do some research and take apart your ground connections and clean them.

Disconnect your VIC to see if the problem persists ... the things you are describing, however, are all connected to the BCM (Body Control Module).
