      If this were my job to find the cause and repair it, my strategy to diagnose it would be to suspect that the instrument cluster itself was no good but would want to know the reason if I could see it. Sometimes removing the cluster and reinstalling it fixes it without you really knowing what you did to change it for the better, maybe where the connector attaches to it has a loose pin connection, but the odds are the cluster is junk.

    What does the heater blower resistor look like and where is it?
    Blower runs on high only. Told to look for resistor behind glove compartment. None of the pictures of resistors look like what I see and they range in price from $16 to over $100.

    Control panel sinking
    The electric control panel in the drivers side arm rest is leaning inward, sinking down on the inside edge lower than the edge of the arm rest. Can this be fixed by a home mechanic?

      I would bet that a MacGyver fix could be done, but I wouldn't know exactly how until it is examined. The panel itself comes undone without removing any screws so it's not terrible to remove and look and see what has happened that is allowing the panel to drop.

      I wish I could tell you what happened during your installation but I can't. The thing that makes this question the hardest type of question to answer is because the thing that caused this to happen did not occur naturally. It is what we refer to as "mechanic induced". Although you explanation of detail is good, it is just not enough. The instrument panel had to come out to do this job, a very complex undertaking with lots of wiring connections. Go over your work.
      One armchair guess after looking at wiring diagrams. My armchair guess is that you left off a ground wire eyelet from under a bolt. The ground circuit that seems like would give problems between the headlight switch and speedo and tach function is G200, G200 is located by the air bag control module under the console. Did you take anything apart at or near the console?

    Quick flashing turn signal
    Have 2005 Wrangler, quick flashing on left signal. Front and front bumper lights work. Rear tail light high intensity does NOT work for brake, hazard or turn. Low intensity normal driving light works. Changed bulb twice with known good bulbs, no effect.

      Check any fuses and relays related to that light circuit.The wiring or harness leading to light could have a short,test for power at the harness that plugs into light.Check for corrosion in harness,light connector,and socket where bulbs go.If all lights are inside 1 housing and that housing has only 1 harness providing power to,its more than likely a fault inside the housing,if all of your other checks dont find find the cause

    My driver's side seat is completely shot, is there a different option than Jeep seats?
    We can not find any old jeep seats, because this is a frequent problem with jeeps and would like to find a different type of car that their seat would work in my jeep, it doesn't need to look good, it just needs to fit in the car and be mildly functional
