Dash Cluster Going Out

Hey Guys,

A few times now while I'm driving my entire dash cluster will go out (Speedo and Tach drop to 0) and the Passenger Airbag indicator will turn on.

What does this mean???

That's a pretty common problem with older TJs, here's how to fix it... TJ Jeep Problem with Instrument Guages.

When I fixed mine back in '97 or so, I very slightly (VERY slightly) flattened the connector's male pins with needle nose pliers so they gave a better/tighter electrical connection. That fixed it permanently.

When you have a choice, buy American.
