#177 of 735 98 Jeep Cherokee Amp gauge intermittent problem
Aug 27, 2009 (6:35 am)
My 98 Cherokee starts normally, but sometimes, after driving for a few minutes, the 'Check Gauges' light comes on and the amp gauge drops to 9 volts. This continues until the engine is shut off. On restart it will be OK. It does not happen very time but it's happening often enough now to cause me to worry.
Any suggestions as to what the cause/fix might be?

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee with something similar.
Sometimes it will start and run perfectly. Other times, it will not even attempt to start but I will hear the CD changer in the back of the SUV loading all the CD's. I can then wait 5 minutes and it will start perfectly. I notice when it won't start that the instrument dials do go crazy but only when attempting to start it. When it is running, it does seem to run fine.
I have it at a mechanic right now. Initially they told me it was the battery however, I know that is not the entire problem.

The guy who jumped the battery reversed polarity, melted a fusible link off the pos. terminal. What else can I expect? Please don't tell me my computer is trash, you hate to see a grown man cry. It turns over, no start. suggestions?
#180 of 735 electrical problem

My wife has a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. The power windows don't work, the controls for the radio on the steering wheel don't work and the overhead console only shows what direction you are traveling and not what the temperature is. Also the lights on the inside of the Jeep stay on no matter what you are doing. The console for the windows and door locks, the power windows no longer work, but the power door locks still work and so do the controls for the mirrors. The memory seat controls also no longer work. Any suggestions?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but we had very similar problems with our 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee... all electrical in nature. We replaced sensors and other less expensive items...however in the end replaced the electrical control panel/unit...and all problems were resolved. This appears a very commen problem with JGC as they get older.

I am having the same problems with my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It first started when I set the factory security system off and the gauges started going nuts with a strange fast clicking sound coming from behind the instrument panel.Now this happens 1 out of 5 times when I shut down the car. Nothing electrical works when this is happening and the only way to fix it is to disconnect the battery and reset the system.Anyone have any ideas?
