gauges gone crazy

I have a 1998 tj and the gauges (speed and tach) stop working when the air bag light comes on.

Have any of you had this problem and how you fix it ?

ONLY the tach and speedo, the rest still work?

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

The water in the floorboard is likely the flaw on the 97/98 if you have AC. there is a drain that get clocgged for the ac core. you can put a alight air streem up the tube and it will clean it out temporaily and stop the water in the floorboard.

My TJ when I would spray it out with a garden hose, the guages would go all crazy. I had a ac core changed under warranty and they put silacone on the connections behind the dash and it hasnt happened since. but I also dot spray the dash with a hose anymore.
