Gauges are bouncing around on my dashboard and periodically it will beep without the key in the ignition. Check the battery alternator and starter and replaced the starter relay switch. No power to the starter 2002 Jeep Wrangler. Any advice would be appreciated Pearl

Hello and welcome to just answer. This sounds like a low system voltage or bad connection(s) at the battery. Tell me this: When you turn on the headlights, are they nice and bright? If so, when you turn the key to the start position with the headlights on, do the lights stay bright, get dim, or turn off?

Let me know,
