The fuse will be rated 10 amp red in color and will be marked ICM(instrument cluster module) if this is good then your whole circuit board is the fault, chances are it might have gotten a voltage spike which caused this problem.

Definitely could be a wiring problem. http://cgi.ebay.com/1997-FORD-RANGER-TRUCK-ELECTRICAL-WIRING-EVTM-MANUAL_W0QQitemZ120312536154QQcmdZViewItem?_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116
From here you can pick up a factory wiring diagram for your vehicle for very cheap. I would also recommend the factory service manual. As one repair pays for the book itself many times over usually. If you still need any assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution

The speedometer on my 2004 Pontiac Montana quit working. Is there a fuse for that?


Nope. The speedometer needs a signal from the vehicle speed sensor to operate. Is the check engine light on? If so, scan for any codes that may indicate a VSS problem. If no codes, possible internal cluster issue with the speedometer head

Instrument cluster for a jeep grand Cherokee 2004


ok i answered this yesterday.
search?
again, you can not marry a cluster, ever, with out factory scan tools. why would you try to use a USA miles cluster.
why? why not ask JEEP THAT, ;you will be told NO.
on many newer cars the VIN has to match too.
and the ODOMETER must be MARRIED, not by you.

the cluster has a self test mode (why not do that first????)
after checking both cluster fuse first., with a volt meter. (12v both side fuse is good fuse,keyon)

we do the self test next.
ask or read your other post its there.

What is the location of fuse for speedometer on 2o04 ford explorer


Speedometer The instrument cluster receives the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) signal from the powertrain control module (PCM) through the standard corporate protocol (SCP) communication network. The instrument cluster monitors the VSS input from the PCM and commands the speedometer with a corresponding movement of the pointer.
  • The speedometer/odometer is inoperative
  • Circuitry.
  • Powertrain control module (PCM).
  • Instrument cluster.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test L .
PINPOINT TEST L: THE SPEEDOMETER/ODOMETER IS INOPERATIVE Test Step Result / Action to Take L1 RETRIEVE THE RECORDED DTCS FROM BOTH CONTINUOUS AND ON-DEMAND INSTRUMENT CLUSTER SELF-TESTS
  • Use the recorded instrument cluster DTCs from the continuous and on-demand self-tests.
  • Are any instrument cluster DTCs recorded?
Yes
If instrument cluster U1123 is retrieved, REFER to Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual to continue diagnosis.

For all other instrument cluster DTCs, REFER to the Instrument Cluster Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index.

No
For inoperative speedometer, GO to L2 .

For inoperative odometer, GO to L3 . L2 CARRY OUT THE SPEEDOMETER ACTIVE COMMAND USING THE DIAGNOSTIC TOOL
  • Connect the diagnostic tool.
  • Key in ON position.
  • Enter the following diagnostic mode on the diagnostic tool: Instrument Cluster Active Command.
  • Select the instrument cluster speedometer active command.
  • Trigger the speedometer and scroll in increments of 10% while monitoring the speedometer. The speedometer should increase in increments of approximately 20 km/h (12 mph) for each 10% change.
  • Does the speedometer increase within specifications?
Yes
REFER to Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual to continue diagnosis.

No
GO to L4 . L3 MONITOR THE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT DISPLAYS
  • Key in ON position.
  • Monitor the compass, air temperature and message center functions of the integrated circuit display.
  • Do the compass, air temperature or message center displays operate correctly?
Yes
GO to L4 .

No
Go To Pinpoint Test AE . L4 CHECK FOR CORRECT INSTRUMENT CLUSTER OPERATION
  • Disconnect all instrument cluster connectors.
  • Check for:
    • corrosion
    • pushed-out pins
  • Connect all instrument cluster connectors and make sure they seat correctly.
  • Operate the system and verify the concern is still present.
  • Is the concern still present?
Yes
INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Instrument Cluster in this section. TEST the system for normal operation.

No
The system is operating correctly at this time. The concern may have been caused by a loose or corroded connector. CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test. There isn't a fuse just for the speedometer , there are four fuse for the whole instrument cluster . If one of these fuse's were burnt you would have more then just the speedometer not working ! You need to have a scan tool to find out what is up ! you could need a new cluster ! Is the check engine light on ? if not wouldn't think vehicle speed sensor bad , besides speed info for speedometer PCM uses for transmission shift points ! Good luck ,hope this helps !

All my gauges work except my speedometer. What is going on?


Check your speedometer cable at both ends and make sure it is on tight. If the speeometer cable is the original cable it might be time to replace it with a new one. The cable will wear out over time and cause your speedometer to stop working when you drive your car. A replacement cable will cost around $15. If your speedometer cable is good and in working order then you will have to have your instrument cluster repaired. Take a trip to your local junk yard and find your vehicle and then remove that instrument cluster and replace your broken unit. This is cheaper then having your original instrument cluster rebuilt at a shop. If your instrument cluster is digital, check the fuse box located underneath the drivers side steering wheel and locate the "instrument cluster" or "speedometer" fuse. Pull it out and replace it with the same number fuse. To remove your instrument cluster, remove the four phillips screws holding your plastic bezel that surrounds the cluster and then remove the four phillips screws that hold the instrument cluster in place. Now pull it away from the dash and disconnect the electrical plugs. This is very easy to do at home using a phillips screwdriver. If you have any more question, feel free to contact me.

Odometer quit working but speedodometer works all gagues work need to know what to check


The odometer is driven by a small electic motor. It receives the same signal the speedometer receives. If the odometer motor is no longer functioning, I'm affraid the entire instrument panel cluster will have to be replaced.
Any other questions, let me know.

2003 Buick Rendezvous speedometer is faulty


Try to reset the software.
How? Park your car first. put the gear in Park (P). Turn off ignition and take out the key. Next, on the cluster there is a trip switch. Press and hold it. Insert the key and start the engine. If the pointer (needle) goes to the orginal position ( 0 mph), you just reset the cluster. Potentially this will fix the issue you are having. I just saved you a trip to the dealership and $500. But, If the issue goes away for few minutes/hours/days and it comes back again. Most probably the motor (Stepper motor) for the speed gague has gone bad. Replacing it is not that hard, getting the part might be hard. See if you have friend at Delphi. They might be able to tell you the actual part number and supplier. Make sure you replace the exact part number, not the it could be part. The motors are calibrate to work with the software. If the two are not compatiable, the gague might not work properly.

If you can't do it, there is a company in Detroit area that can replace the part for you and they are way cheaper than delearship. Sorry, dealership. This cmpany work with GM engineering. They are called Specmo enterprise www.specmo.com

Good Luck!

Gagues stopped working, even the digital readout, on my 2003 Chevy Suburban The wire harness is connected properly. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?


I'm going to assume you checked the fuses, and say that the display panel will have to be replaced. On these the display is all one piece, and when one gage goes out it effects the whole thing. Some of these display panels had in line fuses on the inside circuitry, so you may be able to pull the display and change the fuse. Others were built as a sealed unit and cannot be taken apart.
