    Gauges Not Working

    The gauges in my 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport (4.0L) have not been working a for a few days. This happened once or twice before but was never an issue as the next time I started my car they worked fine. This time restarting the car does not seem to be doing the trick. Nothing on my control panel is working and my "airbag" red light is on.

    Any suggestions? Has anyone els had this problem?

    THanks, but I fixed it. Took the dash apart and it was a simple as the plugs coming loose on the back of the gauge cluster. I re-seated the the plaugs and it has been working since.
