I had a 99 Sport that did that while still under warranty with about 20k on it. The Jeep dealer said that was a common problem on 1999 models, something to do with a connection behind the instrument cluster. They fixed it in just a few minutes, and it never did it again while I owned it. My 2000 has never had that problem. If no one on here can answer your question better, maybe you could ask a Jeep dealer that has been in business since 1999.

Most likely a bad/loose ground. Another member just posted a similar issue. Turned out to be a bad ground on the dimmer switch.

You did check fuses right?

I would pass personally. But in the end it is your call. If those are the only problems and you feel comfortable fixing them go for it though.
