not sure if you guys can watch this or not since it is on facebook. It's pretty funny what these people do with their cherokee.

Seen that a year or so ago. One way to get the mud off. Check for holes in the floor too.

Surprisingly, there wasn't much damage to the vehicle or the pool. Can't say as much for the garage though.

Do a full oil change. Water could have gotten in and settled in the bottom of the engine.

It was running when it went in the ign sw was on until I craned it out a couple hours later. Pool is a chlorine free pool so that might help a little.

She's runnin as smooth as before. I'm taking ALL the connectors and fuses/relays apart and cleaning them and putting them back together with Di-electric grease.

How hard is it to pull out the instrument cluster?

Fairly easy, you'll need to pull the dash bezel (the same one you remove to replace the radio, there are a couple screws and a bunch of clips remove the screws and then pull out from the bottom to remove) which will also require removing the plastic "clamshell" covering the ignition on the steering column for clearance, then it is just a few screws to pull the cluster (these clusters use incandescent bulbs for lighting that must be periodically replaced so the aren't too difficult to remove/service, note: If you pull/replace the cluster I would highly replacing these with LEDs).

Anyone have a working voltage gauge for sale? The wire on the little resistor on mine is burned.

Nevermind, I pulled all the gauges out and cleaned everything and still have gauges not working. Question, is it possible to know if the instrument cluster is all to blame here or could it also be somewhere else in the wiring harness or ECM?

Does the part # on the TCU have to be the exact same for a replacement? I'm seeing TCU's on ebay but the numbers are different, and the ones that look mine have green stickers whereas mine is yellow

I replaced all the lights on my 98 with LEDs except turn signals and side markers. Kept having issues I believe due to the trailer wiring harness, makes turn signal LEDs act funky.
Brakes and reverse are easy and look great.

edit: whoops wrong thread
