just thought i'd share

Just replaced clutch on my 03 rubicon. Having the exact same problem. Only. All my gauges went dead and jeep wouldn't start. I disconnected the air lock and gauges work and starts but no speedometer and stalls when coming to stop.

The gear pinion was never touched. Any help appreciated

smokescreen51 can you tell me where this speed sensor is please.I'm having this same problem and pulled out the speed sensor code.

I put my friend speed sensor from his tj into mine in an attemt to find out if my sensor was bad (did'nt help any) and now his jeep does the same thing. did my computer break his sensor? Is there some sort of computer reset that i'm unaware of? apart from the engine light and not having a working speedo, my jeep now stalls when coming to a stop and the cruise control won't work. any ideas? thanks.
im having similar trouble with my 99 sahara 5 spd that i just purchsed...
speedo/cruise doesnt work, stalls out when coming up to a stop sign. will run and rev some as can be when in neautral and whatnot. took the jeep to get the check engine code read,
P0500- speed sensor problems.
not sure if its the sensor or if the previous owner screwed something up on the lower pinion gear piece when installing the SYE kit thats on it.

is there anyway to check the sensor itself is still working by hooking it up to a volt meter or something???
thanks in advance guys

I had the same problem. All you have to do is take off the gauge cluster and clean the connections with q-tips and alcohol. Fixed the problem.

mr4x4 did you check your code


Here's an easy way to determine why the check engine light is coming on.
(maybe it should be a sticky)

Turn the key to the accessory position then off
then accessory then off
then accessory...

(Basically, three cycles of accessory/off, ending up in the accessory position.)

At this point, in the odomoder area, you will see a code that corresponds to the error code.


Alternate Method
ADDED BY GROGIEFROG: There is another way that only works on my 2004:
Start with the ignition off. Within five seconds, switch the key on, off, on, off, on. ("On" is NOT "Start" and "Off" is NOT "Lock").

- Test for Gauges
-----
1. Hold in the trip reset button.
2. Turn key to ON position.
3. Release trip reset button.
4. Gauge and Lamp test begins
5. When odometer is finished counting codes display
6. Test is done when you see a Software Version number (e.g. 6.4) and Odometer returns to normal.

Slick I had that happen once a couple of weeks ago. Check engine light came on, speedo and tach quit working but the engine stayed running. Hasn't happened since.

It's either that or the connectors are dirty. I have the same problem with my 99. I just haven't allocated enough time to try and correct it.
05-09-2006 11:52 AM
Jerry Bransford The speedometer gear housing must be rotated properly so the speedo gear properly engages its pinion gear. It's possibly nothing more than that. There are certain positions the housing must be at depending on the speedometer gear tooth count so count the teeth and rotate the housing so it is lined up properly. You'll find the tooth count ranges on the housing so just line up the housing to match what is indicated. Even when pointed at the right index mark, you may still have to rotate it a bit more to get the gear to engage properly.

And when the speedometer doesn't work from this problem, a Check Engine light will result.

Bill Atherholt I had check engine light come on, speedo go out, and stalling at intersections. 98 4 cyl TJ. Problem was squirrels. Chewed the wire from the sensor. Dealer found the problem. Much appreciated. You have lost communication with your sensor.
