No RPMs while driving.
Hi guys.

First of all, WJ, 2000, Limited, 4,7, 122000 miles.

A strange problem accured to me today.

I was out driving, and i came to a stop, where i shut the engine off. It was turned off for about 1 hour. When i wanted to start it again nothing happned. The gauge light went on, but thats it. Klik klik klik. I jump started it and it died right away again. Tried again and this time i aplied the gas and i could keep the engine running. Kept it like that for a little while, and barely got it into gear and started driving. What i then noticed was that the engine was running fine, put i had no RPM readings what so ever. I drove it for 1 hour, and it felt just fine, maybe a little sputter from the exhaust but nothing unusual.

What could this be ?? A sensor of some kind. Any advice or sugestions will be highly appreciated !

Thanks !

Dead or dying battery almost guaranteed. But could be bad battery terminal connections. Clean them and tighten them up good and tight. Very common problem ....if you search you will find lots of similar posts and it usually turns out to be one or the other.

My logic sense just told me, that it was something else then the batteries or the terminals. But i see your point, and that might be the most straight forward place to start. Atleast with the terminals :)

Think i found the problem. The RPM needle is on the wrong side of the little pin that holds it.. What the hell... How did that happen ! :-P
