I had to start a new thread on this one.
My gauges have been messing up for about a week now. It was all of them at first. They would come on after a few minutes and stay on until I would shut the Jeep off. Immediately turn it back on and they would be dead again.
Then it started getting worse. So I searched and searched and read a bunch of issues like this so I took it apart, cleaned the contacts, twisted them slightly, used dielectric grease, put it back together and still nothing. Kept getting worse. Then the Speedo/Tach started going.
Then for the last two days they have not worked at all. My odometer was stuck at 85,000 even for two days. On my way home from work tonight I was almost home and they all came back on again. The mileage stayed the same! I checked the trip and it started counting tenths. So I drove around until it hit a mile, switched over to the odometer and it was at 85001!!!
I drove at least 200 miles in those two days and it isn't showing? Highly doubting the 85000 low miles now!!!
