VIC warnings are only for the level in the reservoir - but you already figured that out I guess

Pretty sure 93 is the only year with the oil level sensor. I think it went away for 94 or 95

97 ZJ VIC and Cluster Issues

All, Recently bought a 97 grand Cherokee for my son, 79000 miles. We see a lot of the same issues with flashing VIC, engine coolant and washer fluid indicators on the VIC even though they are full. So, when people say bad solder joints, are we talking bad solder joints in the connector at the end sensor, or in the VIC?

Also, we have a deal where we will be driving down the road, and every gauge in the cluster drops to zero. We drive like that with no gauges for a few minutes, then everything comes to life, all dummy light s flash as if you just turned the ignition on, and it goes back to normal. Any ideas on this one> Other than the intermittent coolant and washer level indicators, no other faults or lights. Thanks in advance!

Yes, solder joints inside the VIC.

Cluster issues could be confusion from a dying VIC on the CCD bus or just a drop in power. Does the overhead trip computer die when the cluster does?
