1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L instrument panel gages VIN: 1J4GW58S3X
Thanks for everyone's input. The problem, believe it or not, was the door module had gone bad, and it was connected to the same PCI bus as the gages, and somehow was dragging the PCI bus down. Replacing the passenger door module fixed it. Go figure!
