Chrysler Repair/'99 Cirrus lxi 2.5 v6: AC/instrument cluster


I own a 99 cirrus with the 2.5 v6.. without warning everything except my fuel gauge quits working on my gauge cluster and at same time my a/c also quits.. but just as randomly as it quits working it will start working again. Any thoughts suggestions or ideas?
Thanks, Anthony

Hi Anthony,
When you say the A/C 'quits' if you mean the compressor stops operating, then I wonder if fuse #9 in the power box in the engine compartment might have a cracked wire which unpredictably opens and closes the current circuit that operates the compressor clutch. So take a look at that fuse (10 amp). That fuse is also involved in the instrument cluster but I don't see it being responsible for the entire cluster ceasing to work, but it might do that.
Sorry for the delay in answering your question but I just found it in the 'pool' to which it had been referred by the other expert, Kevin.
Please read the PS below.
