DIY takes a LOT of time (I've done this) because there's a lot paneling to remove (do so gently to prevent stripping screws, plastic incerts, and breaking clips.) Because it is part of the integrated instrument panel (warning lights, speedo, et c.), you're probably better off replacing the whole piece. You could try stripping it off a junked Jeep (perfect way to learn how to take the dash apart to reach the cluster), or buy it from an auto parts store (Part # dependent on model). However, you can service it yourself. For full instructions, see the factory service manual, go to GreatLakesXJ.com/tech.html and download it. Please be sure to donate so they may maintain the documents on line. Most of the info you need is on pages 1002-3 and 1025-8. The parts catalog on the same page will provide the part numbers for the bulbs.

I wouldn't replace it, just fix it. Check heatertreater.net for information on how.

My check engine light came on because the terminals were not connected tightly. no. quite the contrary. if you have a "check engine" light on, disconnecting, or in this case replacing the battery will turn it off. you have a different problem.

Disconnect the negative battery cable for about two minutes and that should reset your check engine light.

The check engine light comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, a check engine light is lit when there is a problem in the emissions or somthing that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions.

Replacing the water pump will not cause the check engine light to come on. Either it is a coincidence or you have accidentally disconnected a wire or damaged a sensor somehow.

A gasket could be the cause of a Jeep Cherokee engine to whistle when it's cold. Check the throttle body gasket to see if it needs to be replaced.

It could be an emissions problem or a catalytic converter problem.

With a scan too or with a battery disconnect.

Why would you want it to come on. Its not on because theres nothing wrong with your engine.
