Re: Dash Gauges Go Dead!
I had the same issue about 3 weeks ago. Drove home from work, everything was fine. Changed clothes, got back in the Commander, started it, no gauges, a/c, etc. Shut it off to check owners manual about fuses, thought maybe one had blown, turned it back on, everything worked fine, but the check engine light was on. Drove where I was going, sat for about 2 hours, check engine light was still on, got home and parked overnight. In the morning, started up and no check engine light. Took it to the dealer, they said it was the ignition switch that needed to be replaced. Took almost a week to get the part in, wrong part came, took the Commander on vacation, about 250 mile trip each way, got back this weekend, had an appointment today to have the ignition switch replaced. Only drove home, but haven't had any problems since the initial time. I asked the service rep if this was common, they said it was the first they had seen with this issue.
