Help! my control panel quits working
I bought my 98 wrangler almost a year ago and right after I noticed that my gauges on my control panel will stop working all at once. my speedometer,odometer and gas gauge mainly. I tried reseting it and no changer. I have to turn my turn signal to the right to get them to start working again.
any opinions?

Have you checked the connection behind the dash, I think its all in one plug as I recall.

Connector on the back of the gauge cluster. Happens. Pull the gauge cluster clean the connector, apply some dielectric grease and re connect is securely.

Thanks for all the help guys. Are yall sure I'm not going to have to replace my whole cluster? The previous owner gave me a replacement cluster. I'm worried i may loose my odometer mileage.

Happens to mine every so often, loose connection...I can just smack the top of the dash and they fix themselves :) lol it's not a jeep unless you have to hit something to make it work! Figure I'll pull the whole dash apart when i re do the speakers/radio so i'll wait to fix it
