Speedometer and Tachometer Intermittent Fail
1998 Jeep Cherokee, 6 cy, 4.0 liter
4 X 4
Overhead cluster containing outside temp, compass direction, fuel mileage, etc.
On occasion while driving, the air bag light turns on and the tachometer and speedometer quits; but all other gages continue to work. These gages are: oil pressure, coolant temperature, fuel, and voltmeter.
After 5 to 10 minures, the airbag light goes out and both speedo and tach return to normal operation. This happened today and before I could find a suitable place to pull over to investigate, everything retured to normal. I was going to try shuting the engine down, wait a few seconds and see if it would restart, and if the system would reset itself.
This problem is worrisome becasue it destroys my confidence that the vehicle is relaible enough for a longer trip away from home. This has happened twice in the past two months.
Where do I begin to look for this gremlin?
