Question about 1996 Ford Mustang

Speedometer is jumping all-over

I have a 1991 Ford Mustang GT Conv. I changed the cluster since the gas guage and the temp guage were not working, and the speedometer was jumping. The gas and temp guages are working now but the speedometer is still jumping all-over. What is the problem?

You better check the connector to the speedo and cluster, either you bent a pin or damaged the printed circuit, or the connector is not locked properly.

Why does speedometer/odometer work intermittently?


Pull your negative battery cable for 30 min see if it resets your sytem. Guages should jump up and drop back then work perfectly. Had to do this with my 2005 monte carlo

I need to know why my oil pressur, water temp, and gas gauge dont work. is it the cluster or are they all just bad???


On an older s-10, the clusters usually hold up well, there is a guages fuse, that sends power to these guages. Check to see if this fuse is bad. This may be a cause, Good luck...coop442000

mustangs of your year are known for having defective stepper motors installed in the gauge cluster. Having someone replace the bad motor with the newer p/n motor should be a lot cheaper than replacing your cluster at the dealership.

Instument Guages


well the issue is youe enitre gauge cluster i do understand that your speedometer is working but it is a cable speedometer not electronic like everything else in the gauge cluster so first i would recomend checking the voltage getting to your gauge cluster then just replace the guagecluster they are really cheap i a salvage and not hard to install at all but the cluster itself is not very comon to go out so make sure you check voltage to it first i wouldnt want you to go through buying and replaceing the cluster and that not fix it

Chevy cavalier 2005 speedometer stuck not working


That Cluster will work But, You will have to get an Installation kit if you want the Tach to work. Everything else will hook up the Same. You have a Distribution Box (Fuse Box) Under the Hood on the Drivers Side, There is a Fuse in it for the Speedo. Inside the Cover to the Box is the Fuse Diagram or in the Back of the Owners Manual.
