Hello All,

96 Grand Cherokee, 135K miles, 4.0 I6

Anyway, I appear to be having some electical problems.

1. When I reset my odometer on the dash the "check gages" light comes on and the oil pressure gage starts dropping. Oil is fine, and it only does it when I reset.

2. When I press numbers on the radio (2 for example) I get station 1.

3. The driver door doesn't lock/unlock electronically anymore. By the remote or from inside, or even when I take off and hit 15 MPH and they all lock. If I manually lock the door, I have to use the key to get it open again. Also, with the alarm set I can open the door without setting off the alarm.

So, do I have a loose wire or something, or should I be thinking bigger?

Thanks for any help.

I haven't a clue as to what's going on with your Jeep. However, I bet the Speedometer Service Company does. I had some work done by them in the past when my stock stereo was on the blink. Here is a link to my previous post:

My guess would be that they can help you figure out all of your electrical, dash, and gauge related difficulties. As for the door and alarm, I don't know if they deal with that sort of thing, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.
