Here's the story cut and dry... I installed a cd deck in my 97 jeep wrangler 4-cyl and the next day, low and behold I don't have any dash readouts anymore! Now the only thing i can think of that might be related is that when I was installing the deck, the wire that powers the memory did ground on the negative wire. But I'm not sure if that would be related or not. The jeep was off at the time and the power wire for the radio wasn't hooked up yet. However... I do have some lights that come on when the jeep is in the on position but hasn't been started. Those lights are the abs, airbag, check gauges and engine lights etc etc. those do come on. But once its started and the timer turns them off, I get nothing. No tach, no voltage, no fuel guage, nothing. And this has me highly confused as to where the problem lays. I checked all the fuses available (under hood and behind glove box) the relay center doesn't have anything related that I could see. Is it possible that the ECM got spiked when that memory wire got grounded? I don't have a wiring diagram to follow as of yet so i'm unsure what the color codes are for the wires into the dash (which are many it seems). I've traced what I can of the wiring to look for kinks but to no avail. I could use a pointer or a suggestion or two.
