Restoring a TJ 1997 2.5 Its gona be a real challenge as the condition was very poor when I got it. Engine stuck I was told and just needed to be freed. LOL
The body is in perfect shape however. I pulled the engine and dug into the jeep.
It must have had a blown head gasket and then in a fit of rage the previous owner rolled it into the nearest lake. It stayed on the bottom for about three weeks. It was then removed and transported three states away to loose it identity. LOL My neighbor bought it to fix up and worked on it for 6 months. I bought it from him basically as a rolling body.
Here is a list of the things I have changed and I’m starting to build it back. Pictures later
Cluster (old one completely corroded ) I have three new ones to pick from, I will sell the spares later
Dash wiring harness
Engine wiring harness
Under dash wiring harness (fuse box crumbled at the touch )
Master cylinder and booster (whole unit completely corroded inside and out )
Engine block is back from mach shop , decked bored , and new pistons
Head is to be in this week
The question today is, I was testing the wiring before the engine install, and I’m getting the no bus thing on the cluster.
I have read that the no bus is lost comm from the cluster to the computer. If you leave the key on about 1.5 minutes it will display the no bus. I held the trip down at power up and it ran 000000 to 999999 and all gauges ran up and down. IDK what that means .
I have the injectors plugged in and the flywheel sensor connected. That’s all that is connected in the engine bay.
I’m thinking the computer is shot also as the outside of it is very corroded. The plugs look good though, as if the wiring harness boot protected them from the lake or whatever.
Is there something else that must be connected to test the wiring with no motor?
And can I or the dealer test the computer?
Thanks (sorry long winded)
