1After further reading and as much as I hate S T customer service and the phone screw over, I think I will probably stay and cough up the money for a new phone sometime in Jan. I was gonna get on a family member's Boost plan. He has a much newer lg but we'll see what happens to his service once the cdma's are discontinued and they lose all the sprint towers. It shouldn't affect S T because they rent and use everyone's towers. I'm not gonna buy actual phone from Walmart again, I'll probably do better on line. Btw, lg is quitting making phones altogether incase that's helpful to anyone. Next up: exhaust getting installed over next few days, then we'll go after water pump, t-stat and hoses and whatnot. So new problem is intermittent guages. I lose everything except battery and oil until I drive for a few minutes. Loose or dirty pins behind there maybe? Also, cold, damp, rainy when it started acting up, doesn't happen daily, weather may be coincidental... thoughts? P.S. if you think it's weather related- ask me for my windshield story 😒

Only thing I can offer with the phone is, I have had good luck with Samsung, Motorola and most recently LG, although as you say LG is getting our of the business. Verizon is my carrier and has been OK by me. Not perfect, but I get a discount through my employer and they have local towers. Everyone has a horror story.
Loose connections at the gauge cluster gets my vote. Just unplugging them and reinserting them is usually all it takes. But its a pain in the butt to get it out,
If your windshield leaks and causes moisture in the dash, it can certainly increase the corrosion and cause issues.,

I think you might be right about loose and maybe corroding pins. We'll see when I take it apart. I got my windshield replaced a year and a half ago and I didn't know what to watch out for. They came to me and as soon as my original glass was out, the guy pointed to a 2 inch rust spot in the channel right above the steering wheel and said he was voiding any warranty I was supposed to have, and that was that. I found out later all the stuff he did wrong including not hitting that little spot with a grinder and putting some sealant on it. So the headliner is damp sometimes but I don't see anything. Maybe its running down the post or as you say, just creating mousture. Also, when I called my insurance about all that a couple months back, they gave me the number to their glass department. Why wasn't I directed there in the first place when I made the claim? So, no I haven't called them. What are they gonna do now? The rust spot was so minor that it took over a year for it to become an issue and I totally blame the glass company and not too happy with my insurance. If you wanna know which jerks did my glass I'll be happy to tell but I don't wanna get in trouble on here. Ok , so I'll clean the pins and spray diogrease in there, see what happens cuz ya know every tiny town you pass thru in the middle of nowhere wants to issue a speeding ticket so I've gotta have it done. Thank God and jeep that I probably only need a screwdriver! 😁

Welcome to CherokeeTalk!

I want every to see every newbie to post something ridiculous in this thread. Keep it tasteful, follow the forum rules. Ribbing by veterans may ensue if it's not ridiculous enough.


Aaaaaand... GO.
my jeep motor is a 4.0 inline six. strong enough for me. I've had some fast machines but this jeep ain't one of them . but... some said, " if it was supposed to be fast it wouldn't be shaped like a brick." if the windshield and roof went all the way to the front, it would be the back.
i fart in your general direction...? phhhht.
