I have a1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport, 4.0liter, auto. Sometimes driving over rough road or on smooth road, the instrument gauges will go to zero, alarm lights will illuminate. Engine runs fine no other problems. Just tapping the dashboard will reset the panel! I am checking all ground wires and connections. This seemed to have started when I had an alarm system installed, though sometime much later.
Do you
have the same problem?

SOUNDS LIKE A BAD/ LOOSE CONNECTION AT YOUR GAUGES

CAN YOU DIY?

IF SO, SNATCH 'EM OUT, WIGGLE THE WIRES ON THE BACK, WITH KEY ON, TO POSSIBLY FIND THE PROBLEM.

THIS MIGHT BE SOMETHING TO PONDER ALSO!
