Electrical Problem

I have a 99 Wrangler and every now and then when I hit a bump the wrong way my airbag light goes on and all other control signs(speedometer,gas,etc.)turns all the way to the left as though the car is off but is clearly running. Anyone have similar problems and if so would much appreciate some advice. Thanks

Sounds to me like water getting in somewhere. Check around behind the dash for any moisture. Not to say it couldn't be a loose connection somewhere, just something to check for.

Thats the same problem I had with my old 98 SE. If you smack the dash they would come back on
What you need to do is remove the gauge cluster and clean the pins where the wires meet the cluster. I cleaned the pins with contact cleaner and the put electrical grease in it and re-assembled. Only took a hour or so and I never had the problem again.
Its an easy fix if you just a little mech. inclined.
