Gauges died

I have a 2002 jeep grand Cherokee limited with 4.7. My gauges randomly work or When its hot outside I have no gauges due to the jeep is hot inside. Cold weather they are fine until I drive about 60 miles then they go out. On the odometer it reads NO FLSH

Re: Gauges died

Welcome to the garage.
Never heard about the NO FLSH text on the odometer. next time it the problems arrises, try the instrument self test, to know if the problem is the cluster or the input: with ignition in OFF, push the odometer reset knob and while pressing, switch the ignition to RUN. Now the selftest will start. All cluster lights will come on, the odometer should count 0000000, 1111111, 2222222 etc and the pointers should go full scale and return to normal position. As soon as the test starts, you can release the knob.
Let me hear if this test works ok or not.

Re: Gauges died

I have tried that. It still say no flsh. Could it be a bcm issue? I noticed on my overhead console that the miles to service and the trip reading is not reading, but all the other info reads ok.

Re: Gauges died

So the test itself doesnīt do anything? I would first check the connector on the back of the instrument cluster to be inserted and locked well. If it still doesnīt do the test, then the cluster is faulty or there is a wiring problem.
If it does do the test normally, then the problem can be with the PCI data bus, which sends the information for all the instruments from the PCM to the cluster, or the problem is with the PCM itself.

Just did some googling regarding the "NO FLSH" message, and it means that the instrument cluster has no software. Ofcourse the software doesnīt disappear and re-appear again without doing anything, so most probably there is some problem inside the cluster. Maybe a loose solder on the circuit board or a conductive line break on the board.
