Question about 1989 Nissan Sentra 4 Door

1 Answer

Insrument cluster transition

I changed my nissan B12 engine and transmission to a nissan B14 engine and transmission. The Tach, fuel and tempeature guage work fine, but the speedometer does not work, because it is a cable connection, and the transmisssion that I have now is an electronic connection.
Can I use the B14 electronic speedometer guage and transfer it into the B12 Instrument cluster and wire it back so that it can work.
Or what instrument cluster can I use that will fit perfect in the dash board without any transition.

    is the sensor a gear driven sensor or hall effect sensor, during the transitions on some vehicles they were using gear driven sensors, and not the hall effect sensors. you may be able to use your cable in the sensor hole place.

SOURCE: instrument cluster bulb is out. how do i replace

It may not be a bulb, as the instrument cluster usually has a number of bulbs and they probably didn't all blow at once. Pulling instrument clusters can be touchy and may not be for the average "shadetree mechanic" however, typically there are a few screws above the cluster going into the dash pad and a few hidden behind the trim panels below the cluster.

It sounds like the connection to the cluster is not making good contact.

Heavy black smoke from b14 engine what is the possible cause ?

Keep in mind the fuel strategy of the fuel injector is what the call PWM(pulse width modulated) so low fuel pressure can cause rich black smoke.coolant temperature sensor that is reading under temperature can cause black smoke and so can the MAF (mass air flow sensor) use carburator cleaner or brake cleaner and clean MAF outside of the vehicle and see if that helps

Why does my trasmission letter in my dash board is wrong.

You probably have a defective Transmission Range Sensor (TR) or a malfunctioning Engine Control Module (ECM) or a malfunctioning Insrument Panel Cluster Module (IPC). In any case, the proper diagnosis can only be made by scanning for fault codes and checking the electronic data from each of these items to determine the cause of the problem.
