2000 Jeep Grand cherokee laredo: the gauges..drivers side..AC…

Customer Question
I have a 2000 Jeep...
I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laraedo. When you turn the ignition the gauges go haywire and there is a tapping/clicking sound down by the fusebox on the floor drivers side. The radio, AC, headligts etc do not turn on. I get the instrument panel to come on but it flickers out. Is it the starter? Alternator? or something else?

I took the battery in to get tested and its good. Thanks!

It is usually the battery. Have you tried to jump start the car. The reason I ask is if the battery tested good then it may be the battery cables.

Just tried that, the headlights came on... but still did not start

So nothing changed? Are the headlights bright , and does the engine try to crank over or nothing at all.

Got it! We let it sit abit longer and wiggled the jumper cables. Looks like we need batter cables. Thanks! - Josh
