Well, I've had problems with the battery gauge before and after cleaning terminals and whatnot, they seemed to have went away. I drove it for a few weeks, no problems. Then I left for vacation. I come back and drive it today and it started up fine. Pulled out of my driveway only to find my speedometer and tachometer pegs are laying lifeless at the bottom. My odometer reads "no bus". I was very confused and was going to pull off at the next available point. Before I could get to one, the gauges just sprung into life and started working. I was thinking, "Oh, my Jeep is just PO'd I didn't take her with me on vacation." So then, the interstate. As I was going down it, all of the sudden, my battery gauge pegs again and the "check gauges" light comes on, just like old times. Of course, just my luck, there isn't another exit ramp that's close to my house so I just kept driving and was going to pull off at the next one. Mind you, all the other gauges were reading fine. I approach an exit ramp and guess what? The battery gauge returns to normal. At this point, I'm at a total loss for words. I continue down I40. The battery gauge pegs and goes away a few more times. I get off the interstate and onto regular roads and guess what? My speedometer and tachometer both, once again, fall lifelessly. By this point, I'm flipping my baby off. Also, the "airbag" light came on. I guess she was PO'd and wanted to kill me. I reach my destination, complete my errands, and return home with no trouble from any gauges. I'm calling Ghostbusters in a few. Thanks for reading.

Mine did that. Lol Bang on the dash, they'll start working if they go out. Might be a bad battery? Too much escaping chemical gas mixture can make the volt meter peg at time.

Hmmmm. I did have a check engine light before vacation and it was for an O2 sensor. But then it went away so I didn't worry about it.

I don't think an O2 sensor would do all that.

I'm even more surprised that so many people like it that aren't TN natives, or even in the South.
