speedo and odometer not working

any ideas? I have read many many threads about this, but I had a JB Conversions super short SYE and after reading about all the speed pickup failures I called them to ask about some troubleshooting hints and they just offered to send me a new pickup GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE (just wanted everyone to know). the problem is even after installing it I still have no speedo or odo.? I did the cluster check and the speedo responds, the pickup is new, I need a wiring diagram to see what else is in the circuit. I checked all the under dash fuses and also under the hood fuses all are good, I haven't seen any damaged wires, but this is a good possibility because the jeep was sitting for 2 months and I just had to drop the tank and repair all 4 wires to the fuel pump and sending unit due to squirrels. The harness is hard to follow and I really don't think they chewed this up too, I think there is some other reason for the failure? Ay Ideas? or anyone have a wiring diagram? Thanks

Had the exact same problem. Has to do with the plugs to the dash losing connectivity. Next time they go out, press your instrument cluster upwards and see if they activate. They should. That will tell you if it has to do with the plugs. If so, buy some contact grease and clean the plug terminals up. It is pretty easy to remove and clean the instrument cluster.
