New here, Farmington Hills, MI

Hello everyone - my first post. I own a 2006 Grand Cherokee and love it except for the strange dash cluster problems I've had since it became out of warranty!

I've registered here to get input from others on the strange happenings with my dash cluster that intermittently goes crazy with bouncing gauge needles, flashing dash icons that sometimes affect the A/C and lights, but not always.

Two separate diagnostics at separate garages failed to find the problem. If it doesn't act up, they can't find it. The problem started at about 34,000 miles and I now have 61,000. Last summer, the battery exploded (it was the original battery). After having it replaced, the 'dashboard event' didn't happen for almost 7 months! I thought it was fixed but then it started again this March and happens intermittently. Perhaps someone here will have insight. I don't want to start replacing computer modules unless I know for a FACT that it is bad.

welcome! usually that is just a sign of a bad battery, but it looks like something else in your case since it has been going on for so long
