Question about 1995 Volkswagen Jetta

Tach and speedometer gauges intermittently stay at zero

My speedometer will occasionally "quiver" at zero simultaneously with the tach gauge solidly reading zero. Usually I can shut the car off, let it set, restart it and then they will operate normally

My speedo stopped working all together but the tach worked. I used another soulution and took out the guage cluster and resoldered a capacitor that was loose. The speedo now comes on every once in a while now but still barely works. There is a plastic gear on top of the transmission that I will check out now.

Need to replace the bearing on the passenger side front end assembly. Was told that I needed to have it pressed in by a machine. Can I do this myself with wood and a rubber mallet?

Sounds like a problem in the cluster. These years of VW the clusters could be repared but by someone who knows what they are doing seeing it's printed boards.

Defective tachometer and speedometer


Do the following:1)key in the ON position:remove the 7.5 gauge fuse.Tach needle should read "0:". 2)put it back,go on the engine and unplug the green plug on the igniter -the big one,with 5 or 6 wires on it.The needle on tach reading should be zero.If not you have a short circuit on the black wire between that plug and the plug on the conbination meter.3) If the reading is zero with the plug disconnected,the black wire for the tach is short-circuited inside the igniter. I have one available.email daddykouki@gmail.com

I have the same problem.. i installed a toggle switch for the fuse so at least I can reset it while driving.. its still a pain so Im thinking my next step will be to drill a hole through the plastic and put in a small metal post to stop the tach from going past 7

has anyone taken theirs into a shop?

I have a similar issue, although mine do not stay off. Occasionally, my entire head just resets. RPMs go to 0, speed goes to 0 and the clock resets along with the trip.
